Since I last checked in on Thursday the weekend has been pretty amazing! We’ve spent time enjoying the gorgeous Savannah weather, tried a few new restaurants, found time to relax at the spa, and have laughed for hours!
I’m so blessed to be home at my parent’s house this weekend with everyone!
The Savannah sunshine finally decided to say hello yesterday so we were able to take advantage of the weather by going for a long walk along River Street.
We spent an hour walking through Savannah’s gorgeous squares. I can’t believe how busy the city was yesterday! One thing is for sure, Savannah loves the tourists who help fund the city!
After a long New York City winter which has included more gray, cold days than most years I was definitely ready for some Vitamin D by way of Savannah sunshine. My aunt and mom thought I was crazy to only be in my Lululemon crop pants and Lululemon Power Y tank but it was perfect! Warmth and temperature is all relative!
After our walk we found a new to us, local Savannah coffee shop, Foxy Loxy, where we were able to get delicious cappuccinos with hearts! It’s the little things in life!
Our afternoon was pretty much perfect bliss! When this trip was organized a few months ago, my mom and I thought it would serve as the perfect excuse for a girls’ spa day. I haven’t enjoyed a full spa day in quite a while and it was exactly what we each needed. While Spa Bleu has been open for three years, neither my mom nor I had been there before. Located just off Broughton Street in Savannah’s historic district the spa is very reasonably priced while providing quite a full menu of services. Our choice, Spa Bleu Escape Day, included a manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, and lunch for $235. It is also a fully organic spa, registered as part of the Green Spa Network. The price was a great deal considering the prices that we each normally face in New York, Tuscon, Chapel Hill, and our other respective towns! We were able to have our services at the same time so the day of relaxation included an hour to two relaxing together during our manicures, pedicures and lunch. We were impressed by each of our services, especially the facial and pedicure which while being all natural were very effective! The only disappointing part of the day was the lunch. Since the spa is right above a Panera, it seems like ordering lunch from there could be an easy option. Instead, we had mini quiche just like you would buy from Sams. Not exactly my idea of a spa lunch!
What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon! While the ladies relaxed the men spent the day walking the beach, touring historic Fort Pulaski and enjoying seafood dockside!
Last but not least, we toasted a great weekend with dinner at our favorite Savannah restaurant, Elizabeth’s on 37th. (See previous review here.)
Today my goal is to be outside as much as possible, enjoying every bit of warm weather and blue sky! We are dining al fresco for breakfast on the back patio my parents have updated recently and then heading out on the boat this afternoon!
