Again with the cool signage, the METRO sign in front of the stairs to go down to another area with fun old books, photographs, etc. Had I not worried that my bags were going to weigh so close to 50 lbs as it was, I would've purchased some of the old books for projects...alas I just picked up some old photos, some cool news giftcards, some Washi Japanese Tape, and a cool blank journal....and it seems like other things that I am forgetting at the moment....(FYI - the unpacking hasn't quite finished, or really started let's be honest!)

Hi All -
Day Two in Savannah, GA began with a walk around town looking for a breakfast spot to eat. We finally found one and I ordered a great breakfast sandwich. It took a little longer that it should have, but in true Southern hospitality, the manager came over later and brought me a little cookie treat! Nice.
I will be doing a separate blog post on the lanterns/lighting and all the architecture, but as a quick tease here I am in front of a nice hotel/inn with a great light fixture.
Jen and I then set off to see more of Savannah's squares, and some of the hot shopping spots.
The Paris Market was a MAJOR stop of the day.
I could've spent half the day in this shop with all the things to see and look through! I will share with you some of my purchases later, however here are a few shots of the shop. The PARIS letters that light up in the back are TO DIE FOR. I want letters like that that say RACH! Really I do, note to self: must stalk ebay for those....
Of course we couldn't turn around in Savannah without bumping into more SUGAR!! (ok eating healthy was gonna have to wait.)
The Paris Market was so awesome!!
After all the shopping we were hungry so we took a break to split a cupcake to give us the energy boost we needed for a little more shopping and sightseeing. We then headed down to the Riverwalk to find some real food.
We waited for an outdoor table on the balcony at a restaurant on the river. It was such a nice day, it was great to eat outdoors. I love eating outdoors when it is nice out!
We headed back from shopping to relax and get ready for the Cupcake Party/Vendor Night at Back in the Day Bakery. We boarded an open air trolley and took the journey across town. Jen and I didn't quite have the full Southern Belle attire, but this was the best us Midwesterners could do!!
As you'll see from the below pictures, many of the girls went all out and looked so gorgeous in their Southern Belle attire!! Tiffany has such great style every given day, and her SB attire was perfect! She looked very cute!
Our hostess Jenn had this dress custom designed! Wow! Shelly also looked wonderful all Belle'd up!
Our other instructor for one of our three classes was the wonderful Christine! She looked adorable!
The night was full of shopping and fun and CUPCAKES. The Back in the Day Bakery certainly had some tasty desserts!
After the last dollar was spent, Jen and I shared a cab over to the Six Pence Pub with Jodie and Karen. What a FUN night we had. Dinner, drinks, and laughs with new friends! Our waitress looked and sounded just like Berta - (the woman in pink - eyes closed :) from Two and a Half Men. She was so funny and nice!
Great Day 2!
I totally forgot to mention the night of Day 1 we had a Ghost Tour of the city! Those pics are on my other camera that are not yet uploaded....that is a whole other post in any case!!! More to come....
