This weekend FLEW by … yikes! Chris’ mom is in town so we jammed a ton into two days. First, if you are just rejoining the blogsophere, here is some reading you might have missed:
We started our weekend off at my happy place … AKA Tybee Island! It was a perfect beach day … not TOO hot and a nice breeze. We scored parking by the pier for the first time too. Yon (MIL) hadn’t been to the beach and ages so we were excited to show her our favorite weekend spot. Emmie was a beach bum as usual
Now that Emmalyne is mobile, taking her to the beach is even more interesting. She is on the go from the moment we get there and we have to watch her like a hawk to see what she puts in her mouth next. Needless to say sand gets consumed. She also has a new affinity for sea shells.
Since we were out there during lunch we decided to pick some up “to go” from our favorite, Fannie’s! I skipped my fish tacos (we had maid some the night before) in favor of a grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich! It was SO good! There is something to be said about having seafood on the beach … I think it is a must.
We also snuck in some family photos …
We headed back home around 2PM to shower and regroup before meeting Heather and D for dinner. FINALLY we managed to take some pictures together
We headed downtown to River Street in Savannah without a real plan. After being unable to make a decision, we finally decided on Tubby’s Tank House. Our customer service experience from the hostess was kind of iffy. Things just seemed off. We waited a lot longer than anticipated for a table and by the time we sat down we were all starving. We split the buffalo shrimp appetizer and warm crab dip. Both were seriously awesome. Chris and I shared a burger and crab legs for dinner … our own version of surf and turf. Overall it was a great group date night sans children. We are seriously lucky to have made such great friends here!
Sunday morning started bright and early with a 6 mile run … Sunday, Run Day! I picked up Heather and we headed over to J.F. Gregory park to meet my new friend Leslie Ann. Leslie Ann’s husband just got assigned to Chris’ unit and I am seriously SO excited! She and I have a ton in common and I am excited to get to know her better. We kept a nice and easy pace … this is the furthest I have run since the Go! St. Louis half marathon!
After getting hot and sweaty, Heather and I headed up to our favorite breakfast joint and met the husbands, girls, and Yon for breakfast. I LOVE eating a big breakfast and love it even more after running.
Later in the afternoon Chris and I continued to take advantage of having a live-in babysitter and hit the movies. We have seen like 3 movies together since Emmalyne was born … which is hard because we LOVE to go to the movies. We ended up seeing The Dark Knight Rises and I have to say it didn’t disappoint. I am a sucker for super hero movies and this is up there with my favorites.
We ended the weekend grilling grass-fed burgers + corn and settled in for an evening of watching the Olympics! Another fabulous weekend in my eyes
New fashion post coming later today so stay tuned
How was your weekend? Are you watching the Olympics?
