If you keep up with my blog, you may have read my post about my WORD OF THE YEAR. I chose the word....ADVENTURE. It was probably not the best word because...1. we are still in the midst of a pandemic....and....2. we really aren't the adventurous type. But after 2020 I was determined that the hubby and I should spend more time having some fun...traveling, doing unusual things, enjoying life more while our old bones are still able to move!
Well, we finally went on our first ADVENTURE of the year! Today is the Mr.’s birthday so yesterday we took off for SAVANNAH. He had some gift cards from BASS PRO SHOP burning a hole in his pocket, plus we got to stay free using some of the hotel points he had saved up during his years of traveling for business.
We didn’t make it to downtown this trip but it’s fun to visit all the shops there. My high school girlfriends and I have actually vacationed in SAVANNAH twice and had tons of fun! The first time we actually (really...I’m telling the truth) danced in the streets! It was some of the most fun I’ve ever had!
We ate hubby’s BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST at a small cafe called CLARY'S. It’s sort of famous. Part of the movie MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL was filmed there. (I suggest you read the book, then watch the movie.) The food is amazing, and the service was superb. Our waitress was very tall and had the shortest haircut ever, but it looked great on her!
We did some shopping this trip, but the two malls were a big disappointment. I don’t know what it is exactly, but the malls just aren’t what they used to be. Some of the major retail stores have either gone out of business or the inventory is low and not appealing. It seems years since I have found really cute clothes that I like!
We happened upon a really nice THRIFT SHOP that I enjoyed browsing in. It had more high-end clothing and household items. I bought a pair of pants and a top...without trying on so I hope they fit! Since I like thrift shopping, we also stopped at a GOODWILL on our way out. I found a SCRABBLE game that I have been searching and searching for! I wanted the tiles for craft projects...paid $1.99!
After a 3 hour drive, we got home safely and SON & GRANDDAUGHTER came over with a birthday cake for Dad/Papa.
Now we are home sitting in our comfort zones in our warm pajamas...the weather decided to have another cold snap after much warmer weather the last several days. I love a short getaway, but I’m always happy and thankful to be home.
Wonder what our next ADVENTURE will be...hope it’s sooner than later!
