Room 148

My two sweet friends Deanna & Trisha asked me to go on a 'girls weekend' with them to Savannah, GA. (Happy Birthday Deanna Deanna Bo Feanna!!!) I think we should make this an annual event. I booked us at The Mulberry Inn (it's a Holiday Inn but doesn't look like it.) It was walking distance from everything. I'll start from the beginning.. Friday around 6 o'clock they picked me up, courtesy of Trisha's limousine service.. Our next stop was just outside of Savannah at Texas Roadhouse where Deanna bought us dinner w/a gift card she had..hmm..never did ask her where she got that card. Then we had the hardest time finding our hotel, which was totally our fault.. One wrong turn can totally mess up perfectly good mapquest directions.. We checked in and were VERY pleased with our accommodations! We highly recommend The Mulberry Inn!! It was too late to catch a movie or go anywhere so we sat at the computers in the lobby and taught Deanna how to use Facebook. Then we stayed up until 2am talking! We actually slept until 8:45 Saturday! YEAH!! We ate brunch at a place called The Cotton Exchange..yummy fried green tomatoes! It was my first time eating them & I loved them! We cruised River Street shops, took a trolley tour and made it back to The Mulberry Inn for tea time where they had coffee, tea, sandwiches, cookies & pastries..all the while listening to a very talented man in a tuxedo playing the piano. Later that night we walked down to the river in the rain! Trisha & I shared an umbrella, pics would have been great but who wants to get their camera wet? We ate dinner at a place the concierge recommended called The Boars Head. Service was great, food was yummy, bill was way too expensive..even w/Deanna & I sharing an entree! We ran home in the rain, singing, dancing & laughing all the much fun. I know the door man at the inn thought we were drunk! I had to inform him that it was all natural, no alcohol involved! We don't need that stinkin stuff.. Our last day we missed Paula Deen's, it was all booked up but we did peep through the window and walk through her shop. Rumor has it we missed her by a week. We had a light breakfast at a great cafe then headed for Savannah Bee Company! Which, by the way, sells their soap for $16 in their store but $3 at Wal-Mart! Just an FYI.. After that we headed to River St. to finish buying gifts for our babies.. Then we realized Trisha lost her camera!! After frantically searching for it she called an antique store we had visited and they had it.. Whew! Relief.. We wrapped up our shopping then ate at a bar-b-q place in Darrien on our way home. We shopped at the Bath & Body Works Outlet (BECAUSE I LOVE THAT STORE) then drove home. We arrived about 7pm. We had so much fun!! So many things I'm forgetting here and so many I have to keep to myself because, well, because some things are just meant to stay between friends... Thanks for all the laughing girls! I absolutely LOVE you both!!! Some Pics...

I love this one..
