Weekend Travels: Blue Ridge, Georgia

We haven’t been on as many weekend getaways lately. We are trying to save for a substantial summer vacation overseas which means less travel during the academic year. (Any other former teachers think in school years or is that just me?) Last weekend, Chris decided we needed to get out of town and I wholeheartedly…

Fall at This Monty House

Every year, my Facebook feed is full of individuals trying to squash early seasonal decorator’s joy. In the immortal words of Lee Greenwood, “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free!” We can’t let the naysayers keep us from decorating our own houses whenever we feel like it (insert Patrick…

Green Tops

The Story A Facebook friend recommended Green Tops as a new spot to try. They raved about the freshness of the food and I added it to our list. One Thursday we decided to give it a try. Green Tops is located where the old Bikas Drive-In was formerly located for many years.  The Service…

Universal Joint

The Story Chris and I have wanted to try Universal Joint for a while. I’d heard really good things about their burgers from several friends. We went on a weekday evening and it was fairly empty. The main problem with the restaurant is the lack of parking in the back. We had tried to go…

Let me know if you have good suggestions of items to potentially include in future posts. Eye Buy Direct Glasses I like to…

Vic’s on the River (Savannah, GA)

The Story For our fifth anniversary dinner, Chris booked a dinner cruise on The Georgia Queen, the popular riverboat that sails past River Street in Savannah, Georgia, each night. We had seen it on our honeymoon five years earlier and remembered it looking like a fun experience so Chris bought tickets ahead of time. The…

Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles Pt. 2: The Big Reveal

I wrote about my Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles back in May. You can see my original post here. The bulbs and seeds we got from Lowe’s said they were foolproof which was reassuring. Instructions on the packs were pretty straightforward-dig a hole, plant the burbs/spread the seed, water and wait 60 days. It was fun…
