A couple of weeks ago we decided pretty last minute that we wanted to take one last trip together, just the two of us! It's really starting to sink in that life as we know it is about to change so we figured what the heck! We packed a bag, booked a cheap hotel (I'm obsessed with Priceline bidding... anyone else use that? I love to research the possible hotels that I could win right before placing my bid... usually I can guess the exact hotel we'll win and we save a ton of money on our room!!) hopped in the car and drove to one of our absolute favorite vacation spots, Savannah. Savannah's only about a 4.5 hour drive from our house. Just long enough that you're happy to get out of the car once you're there but not so long that you contemplate killing one another mid-way through (the 10 hour drive to my parent's house is another story HAHA!). :)
Aaron and I have been to Savannah together 3 times now (I've been an extra time with my bridesmaids for my Bachelorette party last year) and every time we leave with a deeper love for the city.
The historic district has so much to see and is all accessible by foot. Tons of little boutique shops, restaurants, and bars to explore and all of the gorgeous historic homes and squares to take in.
I love just walking around and looking at all the old homes. The charm in that city is on another level.
We stayed at the Hyatt Regency which is located right on River Street. The hotel was nice and the location was perfect. Super close to all of the shops and restaurants. Great sunsets and views of the bridge and river right from our room.
We mostly just took it easy, walked, browsed, ate, and enjoyed our time together. We had to take lots of walking breaks seeing as I am smuggling a watermelon under my shirt and my feet and ankles have decided that they now want to start swelling to the likes of the marshmallow man from Ghostbusters. I'm not kidding. I have giant, marshmallow man feet. Mmm marshmallows. Now I want a s'more.
You stop that.
Where was I? Food distracts me lately. Okay so we walked and had ate and walked some more. I was always rewarded with ice creams #besthubbyever so I was a happy camper!
The morning of our last day we were able to meet up with Celine and her hubby Justin for brunch! Celine blogs over at Aquahaus where she used to share her amazing mid-century home and decorating skills for all the world to drool over. Now, her and her hubby (plus their two pups!) are on a cross country road trip in their adorable aqua airstream and she's blogging about all of their adventures along the way! Be sure to check her out! She's the best!! Isn't it crazy how the internet works? Internet friends becoming real friends is my favorite. :)
We had such a fun time in Savannah. I can't wait to take Baby Z with us on our next trip! :)
P.S. Baby Z is still nestled inside nice and comfy! Only 10 days until due date! Please don't make us wait much longer!!!! :) Okay, time to go eat breakfast.
