Night in Savannah & 6 year Anniversary

This past weekend we headed up to Savannah for the night to hang out with good friends and do a little wedding venue shopping. Jessica & Gregg are getting married and are thinking about having their wedding in Savannah. So early Saturday morning we dropped off baby D at Grammy's house and headed north to look at some venues. The first place we looked at was the Mansion on Forsyth Park. It had really cool artsy feel with tons of gorgeous chandeliers! We met with the wedding coordinator and went through numbers and all types of questions. The hotel rooms were gorgeous with claw foot tubs in the center of the rooms. I would definitely recommend staying there if you are taking a vacation in Savannah. The place was really pretty and Jessica left feeling like it was the place.
Then we headed to lunch at Soho and then were off to another venue and to look for little squares to hold the ceremony. At this point, the boys were over it and left us to go hang out at a bar. :) The girls headed to the Olde Pink House which was pretty, but too small for 80-100 guests. Maybe a rehearsal dinner option, but we aren't even thinking about that yet!
Then we walked a good 5 miles around the city looking at all the little squares scattered throughout. The one we like best was called Madison Square. The only concern is the weather. Jess wants to get married in February so it could be very cold and possibly rain which is always something to worry about. After a long day of walking, we headed back to the hotel to change and get ready for dinner.

It just so happened that Savannah was having a 10 day dining event where 15-20 restaurants offered a 3 course menu for only $30. So of course me being a fatty and loving food, jumped at the offer and booked reservations at a restaurant called Rocks on the River. The food was amazing! Between David and I we had chicken and waffle sliders, lobster mac n cheese, shrimp & grits, tenderloin papperdelle pasta, marscapone cheesecake, and a turtle bourbon pecan tart. I will definitely be going back to this restaurant! After dinner we  hit up a few different bars around the town and then called it a night. It was a great trip and was especially fun getting to do it with 2 of my best friends and their hubby/soon-to-be hubbys.

Yesterday Dave and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. And by celebrated I mean, woke up early and rushed home to go pick up baby D from Marcia's house. It's crazy how much you miss her after only 1 day. Then we went home and snuggled on the couch and took a nap. That evening we headed to my parents for dinner and  watched the super bowl. It was a lovely little relaxing day. Maybe we will go out to dinner one day this week to celebrate, but honestly I am fine with just how we spent our day. Delainey had her 9 month birthday and we are going to the doctor tomorrow so I will be back soon with a 9 month post! Have a good week.
