I can't believe it has taken me this long to post about our trip! Grr. you saw in one of my previous posts, Ian and I just got back a couple Sundays ago from a 4 1/2  day vacation in Savannah, GA. July 12th next month will mark 3 years of marriage for us (eek!) and  since our first year of marriage, this was, err...the first vacation we had taken, just the two of us! I am so glad we were able to get outta town for a few days...and boy do I have plenty of pictures to show you! Here it goes!

When we were deciding where we would stay on our vacation, we wanted to find a place cute and cozy, not far from downtown Savannah, but also cheap enough to not break us. ::haha:: While looking online, I came across this cute little motel called the Thunderbird Inn, aka "the hippest hotel in Savannah." It wasn't very expensive so we booked right away. I just couldn't resist the quirky "retro-ness", and the bright colors of this little place. :)

They even put cute little retro bottles of shampoo and body wash in the room...

Ian and I absolutely LOVE Savannah. It is one of the most beautiful towns I've ever been to...and I already want to go back. :)

The view of the river in the evening was so pretty.

After we were settled in, we headed down to River Street to eat dinner. We ate at a restaurant that overlooked the river, called Fiddler's. We got some oysters as an appetizer, which I normally wouldn't eat, but for some reason I actually loved them on this trip. The rest of the food was delish too! 

The next day, we headed down to City Market to grab some brunch. We found a restaurant called Belford's...which we came to learn was AMAZING.

We sat outside on the patio, which was quite cozy...and we people watched as we ate which was lots of fun. ;)

Here was our view as we ate...

We started off with a lobster bisque which was to DIE for. Yum.

The menu was so big...of course, with my indecisive self,  I couldn't decide on anything...but after about 15 minutes I finally decided on the chicken salad plate, and Ian got the boston butt sandwich. Both were amazing.

Gone. :)

After eating, we walked over to a candy store (my favorite) and I couldn't believe I was actually able to walk out without buying anything. Oh but don't worry, I got some before the weekend was over!

The pecan pralines were to DIE for!

Smarties, and Starbursts, and Reeses...oh my!

A couple days later, we drove about 20 minutes from Savannah to Tybee Island, where we went to the beach! It was HOT, but it was nice be at the beach regardless. :)

Later in the week, we spent some time just walking around downtown Savannah...and found a place called "the Cupcake Emporium." My eyes got big, and Ian knew we had to go in there! Cupcakes are my WEAKNESS!

I got a rainbow cupcake with buttercream icing and sprinkles...and Ian got a key lime cupcake was pretty awesome too. :)

We had such a blast being able to get away for a few days, and hope to go back soon!
