Bachlorette Day Two

Day two held all the really fun activities!!

We went to a place called J. Christophers.  I had this thing called a skillet with potatoes, onions, jack cheese, avocado, eggs and smoked turkey.  It was arguably the best breakfast I have ever had!

I highly recommend this place for brunch if you are ever in Savannah.  It was in an old auto garage and they had mismatched mugs which I loved.

After breakfast we headed home and got ready to hit the beach at Tybee Island.  We only stayed about two hours but it was really nice and relaxing.

When we came home, we all took turns showering and spent some time getting dolled up before heading out downtown.  All the restaurants were crazy packed so we ended up going to a burger joint, which is really Lindsey’s favorite anyway so all for the best!

One of my favorite qualities in Lindsey: she eats sandwiches with a fork...I LOVE IT!!

After dinner, we headed to Club One.  It is a huge gay bar and there was an absolutely amazing drag show.  We had planned to start there and then head a few other places.  We stayed there from about 10:30 until 3 when the bar closed!  We had such an incredible time.

On the way home we ran into a Bachelor party and sang christmas carols for quite a while.  Frosty, Jingle Bells, Rudolph, you name it!!

Sunday morning wake up came really quickly.  We had a quick bite at the same restaurant we ate at after the Savannah Marathon and then headed back to Charleston.  I am still catching up on sleep but what an incredible weekend.  I think (at least I hope) Lindsey had the time of her life!!

Scarlett Turned One!

I promise to get the rest of the Bachlorette recap in tomorrow but it had to get put aside for a very special day!  SCARLETT’S FIRST BIRTHDAY!!

I can’t believe my girl is already one.  I feel like we just got her and now she is a full grown dog.  However in her head she is still two months old so we have a two month old in a giant, still clumsy, one year old body.

We planned to take her to the beach tonight and go for a run on the beach all together but we had a HUGE thunderstorm right when we were about to go! 😦 We still took her for a run, but we stayed downtown because it was already starting to get dark when we were leaving.

While we were in Savannah this weekend Lindsey and I found this store called The Grateful Hound.  It was the cutest store with some really awesome stuff.  I immediately assumed it would be completely outrageously priced because it was such a cute little boutique but it was pretty reasonable.  The best part…they have toys that Scarlett hasn’t been able to destroy!!  She hasn’t had a toy in months because its hard to buy they for her when they only last an hour.  They are called Fluff & Tuff and they are awesome.  I got her two because I knew we wouldn’t be back and the store owner said they are the best toys on the market right now.  I am so glad I got two now because they are still going strong (I know it hasn’t been long but we are already breaking records over here).

With all of her things!

I also got her a cupcake there.  Carrot Cake and Peanut Butter.  She loved it!

I can’t believe I turned into the person that has a birthday party for her dog, but what can I do.  She is the greatest!

Bachlorette Day One

Yesterday began with an awesome breakfast at Hominy Grill.  We had our last clinical reasoning group meeting and our professor took us there for our “discussion”.  The food was amazing.  I had two poached eggs on a biscuit with tomato-bacon gravy.

After the meeting, we went and started doing some practice for our big clinical exam coming up.  Then I raced home on by bike and took Scar for a nice 2 and a half mile walk for my “cross-training” day.  I was going to walk the bridge but I thought since I was leaving after that it would be nice to take her to wear her out and make her feel loved.

So happy!

So happy!

All of a sudden I was in a huge rush.  I got home, showered, made lunch (oatmeal because it is my favorite thing ever right now), packed up my car and headed to pick up the woman of the weekend!

I made her a bachlorette survival kit with all her favorites, and some important essentials: magazine, book, champagne, candy, dog toy (for Georgia), 5 hour energy, Sprite (her favorite), pumpkin cookies, Tums, Advil, hand sanitizer, gum, hair ties, sun screen, bug spray, band aids, Tide to go, nail polish, lip gloss.  I think that was it.

I loaded that bad boy in last and then hit the road.  The house we have rented for the weekend is amazing.  We just have the bottom floor but it is gorgeous!

We took last night to play silly games and just hang out around the house and save our energy up for tonight!

That left me with plenty of energy to do a run around Savannah before everyone got up.  I love running in places I don’t usually run.  There was so much going on this morning around here.  There was a race, a farmers market, a gay pride festival and a bunch of other things I am forgetting.

Today we will probably head out to the beach then come back get ready, have some dinner and go out for the night!!

Good Timing

Talk about good timing!

Just kidding, we had a serial casting lab today.  I sent this picture to Casey this morning and it said “Guess no more running for a while.”  It was mean…whoops!

It was a really cool, fun lab.  It was a little scary with the cast saws but it was good to get real life practice with it before having to do it on a patient.  Nothing like a PT being nervous to cut it off for the patient’s sense of security.

Today was my first day back running.  I took a nice easy jog for 3 miles with Scarlett.  It felt pretty good until she decided to take off at like a 7:30 pace. Not exactly what I had in mind.  Tomorrow I plan to take a walk on the bridge for my “cross training” day with a friend.  It says 2-3 miles so should be a quick little fun activity!

With Casey out of town, I went to dinner with a few friends for restaurant week at 82 Queen.  They had a 3 for $30 menu so I got PEI mussels, Shrimp and Grits and a fantastic Chocolate Cheesecake.  I thought they were going to have to roll me out of there.  By the end of this weekend I am going to need to go on a juice fast!
