I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me ready to hop back on the health train than a weekend of being off of it. Well, it wasn’t totally unhealthy, but there was ice cream.
Delicious cookies and cream in a waffle cone to be exact. I talked my wonderful in-laws into a cone, too. You can’t eat ice cream alone!
I spent this past weekend in beautiful Savannah.
Even though I was there for less than 48 hours, every minute was filled with fun.
I was in town for a wedding for a college friend, but was able to transform some blog buddies into real life friends, too. Saturday morning I met Madeline and Victoria at the Forsyth Park farmers market.
It was great meeting them in person and letting our girls play. Emmie is only 3 weeks younger than Hailey and seeing the two side by side was so much fun. How cute is Emmie?? At first there was more interest in grass than each other
but eventually they noticed each other, though I’m not sure they knew what to think of another one their size.
Victoria found us a cute lunch spot at Soho South Café.
We all took her recommendation for the tomato bisque soup. She didn’t lead us astray; it was creamy and packed full of fresh tomato flavor!
Thanks for the pics I told you I’d steal, Madeline!
I loved chatting it up with my new friends. They are both so genuine and sweet and I really loved being around them. Check them out because what you read is what you get. They’re wonderful! I felt a little bad because I was a bit distracted from lack of sleep (thanks to meeting up with friends the night before) and a teething baby. Yes, real teeth this time! I can see and feel them starting to poke through, and it’s making Hailey a bit more needy of attention during the day. Luckily she pulled off napping in the stroller while I cruised river street with the family after lunch.
Saturday night was the wedding at The Mansion at Forsyth Park and it was GORGEOUS. It didn’t hurt that the weather was uncharacteristically cool with low humidity.
It’s rare that my college group of best friends all get together, so I was on cloud nine all night getting to talk and dance with my best friends (and my handsome hubby, of course). The food was pretty incredible, too.
Yes, filet and shrimp and grits with asparagus. I cleaned my plate.
You could have mistaken Alison for a bridal model. She looked stunning as she and her new husband, Matt, danced to Stand by Me for their first dance.
Then, my girls and I took over the dance floor (and the tambourines) and took full advantage of the incredible Motown band and subsequent rap recordings.
David’s mom and dad were so kind to come to Savannah and watch Hailey for us for while we went to the wedding. It was the best of both worlds being able to spend time with them, have Hailey with us and still be able to live it up with my friends. I’m so fortunate to have such a wonderful family!
Now, back to real life, a giant pile of laundry, a long grocery list and a sweet little girl, who won’t have a gummy smile for much longer…
I love hearing what a couple chooses as their first dance song. Mine and David’s was Everything by Michael Buble. It fit us perfectly and I still smile every time I hear it.
What was your first dance song?
Or, do you know what you’d want it to be?
