I am so sorry it has taken me this long to post on my blog. This has been an amazing vacation and the most fun I’ve had in a long time! I did not make it to the weigh-in this morning in Savannah. I was too tired to pull myself out of bed that early! I am almost positive that I have gained a little weight but that just means I’ll have to work harder this week so that I at least hit my 5% goal a week from Saturday!!

We have done so much here in Georgia that I don’t even know where to begin… I guess I will start at the beginning. I will skip the drive here and jump to Sunday when we drove from Paducah, KY to Atlanta, GA. In Atlanta we dropped Bella off at a doggie daycare for a few hours. We visited the Jimmy Carter museum and had lunch at a really cute little pub. Then we were onto Savannah where we settled into our hotel for the week.

Monday we took a 90 minute trolley tour of downtown Savannah and then went off to explore Tybee Island. I think that was my favorite part of my vacation. We rented an open-air electric car (looked like a golf cart) and tooled around the island for about 6 hours. We walked on the beach and had lunch overlooking the ocean. It was about 71° and sunny – a perfect day to enjoy an island!!

Tuesday was our Paula Deen tour. We were supposed to have lunch at Uncle Bubba’s (Paula Deen’s brother’s restaurant) but they were closed for renovations so we got to eat at The Lady and Sons instead (which is Paula Deen’s restaurant)! I was happy about that but the food was definitely NOT Weight Watchers friendly!! J After the tour, we picked up Bella and went to Fort Pulaski (dogs are welcome there). We then drove to South Carolina so I could say I’ve been and get a spoon for my collection!

Wednesday, we drove to Middleburg, Florida (about a 2.5 hour drive). We got to visit my cousin Brett’s wife and their adorable little boy. Brett is deployed right now so we weren’t able to see him but glad we could visit with Meghan and Andrew and see their beautiful home!

Today we took an on/off trolley tour that allowed us to explore as much of Historic Downtown Savannah that we wanted to! I shopped and we had lunch at a little Irish pub that had GREAT food!


Although I am sad to be leaving tomorrow, I think I am ready to go home. It’ll be nice to sleep in my own bed and get back into my routine! Weigh-in will be a week from Saturday and I hope that I am able to report that I have achieved my 5% goal by that day! Although I have not been counting points and I have enjoyed many goodies, I have been getting a lot of exercise and trying to be semi-conscious of what I am consuming! I think I may have gained a little weight but I am not worried about it begin a set-back in any way!

For those of you who don’t have Facebook – I have taken a TON of pictures that I’d be happy to share with you when I get home.

Have a Healthy Day!!
