The Most Haunted City in the U.S.

I got to spend a long weekend in Savannah, GA with my Mom, her two sisters-Sandy & Judy, and my cousin Denise. What a great girls weekend! We had so much fun just cutting up, seeing the sights, and eating! Here are some highlights from the trip:

Friday night when we arrived we had dinner at Paula Deen's restaurant, Lady & Son's. It was amazing southern cuisine with all the fixins!

This was a house I just loved because of the ivy. So many around Savannah have this charm about them.

All of us taking a break from the shopping on River Street

Robert Redford was in Savannah!! He was directing a film set in the 1800's of D.C. We barely missed him getting out of trailer. So, in hopes that he might leave his trailer again we stood in the wind for over an hour! :) No such luck.

This is where we ate dinner on Saturday night-The Pirate House. The food was delicious! And, it's haunted. This is a picture from when we stopped back by during our Haunted Ghost Tour after dinner that night. See all 6 orbs in the picture?

Sunday before we headed back we drove to Tybee Island. These are some pictures of the beautiful ocean there.

David Cook

David Cook might be my favorite solo singer now. True, I don't know him but I get the sense that he is such a humble person who is so appreciative of the success he's been given, not to mention that he can SING!!! He sounds just the same, if not better, in person than he does on his first self titled album.

Kenny & I had the chance to see him in concert at a small venue: The Reaves Arena at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, GA this past Sunday afternoon. If you enjoy rock music and have then chance then I highly suggest you go see David Cook in concert; you won't be sorry!!

I had been dying to go to another fair since Kenny & I went to the 2006 Alabama National Fair in Montgomery. When I heard David Cook was going to be headlining the closing day of the GA Nat'l fair it sealed the deal for me. We bought tickets without thinking twice.

I can't wait to have another opportunity to see him in concert again.

Here's just a few of the pictures I took:

While we were there, these are some other sights we took in:

This coming weekend: I'm headed to Savannah on Friday with my Mom, aunts, & cousin Denise. Can't wait!!

Time for a Change

With the cold weather approaching, I feel it's time to leave my beachy 'do behind. I love the hair color & highlighting that Tammy Baker of City Salon in Peachtree City gave me for my wedding/summer! She did a fantastic job and always does exactly what I ask with cut or color. But, the Fall weather has fallen upon us and it's time for a change. I'm a little apprehensive about going back to my "natural" color, although I'm not quite sure what that is :) Help me decide!

Fall Adventure

This weekend Kenny & I were able to get out of Carrollton and enjoy something besides the local Wal-Mart for a chance. We headed up to Cumming, GA with a couple of friends and stayed at Tyler's parents' house for the weekend. Saturday we spent the day in Helen, GA during their Oktoberfest celebration. While we didn't partake of that, we did enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, playing putt-putt and walking around to take in the people and scenery. Later on Saturday on our way back to Cumming, we stopped at Uncle Shuck's in Dawsonville. They had a pumpkin farm and corn maze. The girls didn't quite make it through both mazes but the guys conquered them both. It was a weekend full of fun-we're pooped! But, definitely well worth it!

Next weekend Kenny & I are headed to the Georgia National Fair in Perry, GA for the David Cook concert so stay tuned!

Yesterday Kenny's family had to say goodbye to their boxer, Courage. Although Courage is one of 3 boxers Kenny & his brothers have grown up with, 2 of which I've known, I can tell Courage has a very special place in all of their hearts that the other boxers, Samson & Cinnamon, haven't touched. Courage, to me, was the reason Kenny & I decided to get our boxer, Moose. We miss you Courage!!

Happy Fall Ya'll!

I LOVE Fall! The weather, the colors, the holidays - everything! The weather lately has got me in a good mood; I feel like nothing can get me down - I hope this lasts! I think October is one of my favorite months. This October I'm looking forward to:

  • A day in Peachtree City
  • Auburn vs. Tennessee football
  • Day at a pumpkin farm near Dawsonville
  • The Georgia National Fair in Perry, GA & maybe the David Cook concert there!
  • Fall Break (unfortunately thanks to furlough days)
  • A long weekend in Savannah with my mom, aunts, and cousin
  • Halloween
I'll leave you with some pictures of past falls so enjoy!
