From Paula's Kitchen To My Belly...

Hi Y’ALL! I kind of had this feeling that I would LOVE Savannah and I was totally right. It’s a really cute little town and I would go back any time...plus...the word “y’all” is everywhere in that town and that is definitely my favorite “Southernism.” As promised, I posted some pictures (forgive me if you’ve already seen them on Facebook) below...










There is a river front in Savannah that has a gorgeous view...there were a ton of little shops...including a candy shop which made me very happy. I was able to get a caramel apple (as you can see) and homemade ice cream. I also brought people pralines. The shopping there is a lot of fun...they have souvenir shops but they also had a jewelry store and an awesome kitchen gadget store. We also went to Tybee Island which is pretty but there isn’t nearly as much in terms of shopping. I definitely preferred the scene in downtown Savannah. The trees in Savannah have Spanish Moss growing from them and I think it’s absolutely gorgeous so I took a lot of pictures of that. Our trip mostly entailed walking around shops on River Street and EATING. We ate at Lady & Sons of course and I have to say...it was AMAZING. I ate so much it almost made me sick. They give you a hoecakes, biscuits, salad, fried chicken, mac & cheese, gumbo, dessert...EVERYTHING. It was absolutely delicious. The next night, we ate at Uncle Bubba’s and I had shrimp and grits. It was ridiculous how much food I had. I’m glad I don’t have a bracelet or something that notifies Weight Watchers every time I exceed a certain caloric intake...I’d be in big trouble. Jordan and I also watched the Bama game on Saturday...we found an Applebee’s to watch it in...it nearly gave me a heart attack but somehow, we pulled it out for the win! That made the night even better...we play Florida Saturday...I hope the performance is much better.

I haven’t weighed of course...I’m giving myself the week to try and get at least a few pounds off before I see what the damage is. I have been great yesterday and today so I am officially back on track. I will definitely have to weigh Saturday to see how long it will take me to work off the fried chicken...but it was TOTALLY worth it! I don’t have too much else for today...I have been busy trying to catch up with everything...I will post about my weekly recipe on Friday.

I hope you have a great afternoon/week!

Bye!

“Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks, down a long, dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright, 'cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see, through the dark there is light

Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I'd love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong.” Feels Like Home-Chantal Kreviazuk
