    DH & I are planning a getaway probably late October or early November (trying to avoid the rain we are assuming is due to the hurricane season)


    anyone have a suggestion as to where to stay? We are looking at a condo (Bird-Baldwin house) is it nice? I typically am a "Hilton" type of girl but this did look nice in the photos. I do not want any of the Historic hotels

    Also, I want to eat at Lady & Sons

    Please send suggestions as to places to dine, shop, see etc (or things that are a waste of $$)
    this is a spur of the moment thing for us & I want it to be fun, usually I plan trips for months, buy the guide books etc but this time its just the 2 of us & it can be more relaxed.

    Planning a trip 2 months in advance is spur of the moment? Haha!! I don't know anything about Georgia, except I've always wanted to go. Can't wait to hear how the trip goes for you.

    well, we originally were trying to go in the next few weeks but the hurricanes look like they will just be dumping rain and we just decided at bedtime to take a trip

    If you see her, would you get Lady Chablis' autograph for me?

    Lived in Savannah for a few years...LOVE IT!!! Lady & Sons --get there first thing in the morning to make your reservation! Great food! Bird-Baldwin house is downtown and very pretty. Not big on tours but take the Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil Book Tour so worth the money. There is a club, Club One and Lady Chablis' does shows there every so often and you will LAUGH so hard! (please note it's not a family show). River St is the best again downtown. All the candy shops and food. Oh I so miss it! If you get the chance to get out to Tybee, you need to eat at the Crab Shack (so yummy)!
    Let me know if you have any questions! Have a great trip!

    we are not taking any of our kids so we;ll look into the show

    i am excited of course I LOVE Paula Deen (even after seeing her live which was pretty raunchy) DH said write down every book of hers you have we arent bringing home duplicates so i guess unless she releases one between now and then I wont buy any books HA!!

    keep the ideas coming it will be only our 2nd getaway in 22 years without kids so I want it to be fun and memorable....

    Go on a carriage ride around the city. We only had a couple of hours to spend so we did this. We saw so much more than we would have in the car and heard great stories too! If you like architecture, there is a beautiful catholic church located downtown.

    You and I could leave home at the same time and drive the same distance.

    I'd have crossed five states and you'd still be in Texas.

    Paula Deen is crazy. When I lived there I worked for Budweiser there so I talked to her or one of the boys about once a week for their beer order. That was at her old place which was right accross from Vinnie Van Go-Go's which is like the best pizzain the south! Hands down!! Great place to go and drink and hangout side is Malone's. Always loved it when Bucky and Berry were there..great show. It's outside (free) set, eat and drink. Really doesn't it get any better? LOL ...Wet Willies is also downtown on River St...great drinks! There is one called Call a Cab...it's called that for a reason...LOL.
    I can talk about Savannah all day long. I loved living there. We moved from there to Charleston, Sc and Savannah is MUCH better than Charleston IMO. We would move back to Savannah if my DH job ever offers it to us!

    Our visit to Savannah in Feb. 2002 was so memorable. Take the trolley tour, and give yourself time to get off, and wander around. We were on a tight schedule, and had to stay on, rather than explore. We definitely have it on our list to return to, on our way
    to or from Florida in 2010. Now that I have two of Paula Deen's cookbooks, I'd at least like to walk into her restaurant. Not sure we can risk the food, if we want to stay healthy. I love reading the cookbooks but have yet to make any of them.

    I'm giving the Children's cookbook to two grands in Sept. and another in Nov. Will make up gift bags with the ingredients needed to make at least two of the recipes, to make
    it easier for their Moms. I passed this idea by my DIL, and she thought it was a great idea. They already have the Kids Cookbook we used to sell, and the red aprons and Chef's hats.
