these past few weeks have been a whirlwind of fun & friends, so i'm just now finding the time to actually post about it. january 24 & 25 was marisa's bachelorette weekend in savannah, ga and oh what a time we had. i got a wild hair and drove up a night early to hang out with my friend kristina who moved to savannah over a year ago and has the cutest apartment behind an old key shop. we drank at hang fire, had a 3am slice from sweet melissa's, and ate breakfast at the restaurant where jenny worked when they filmed forrest gump in savannah.

the next day i went to the impressive wedding cake mansion where marisa's gaggle of gals was staying, karen and stef drove up that day & jeanne was already there. once we were all settled in, we headed over to back in the day bakery for cupcakes! the place was adorable, the food was delish, and marisa was star struck - she's a huge fan of the bakery and hopes to own a similiar set up one day. we also stopped by shop scad, a store full of scad student's artwork from tshirts and greeting cards to canvas works and jewelry. i especially liked the wolf photo pictured above.

once we got back to the mansion, marisa was already crying over the amazing cookbook her friend stephanie had compiled from recipes sent in by marisa's friends and family. then out came the mimosas, wine, snacks and gag gifts - think penis crown, penis straws and a suck for a buck apron. a quick poll, and we all decided on a ghost pub tour - surprise, surprise 5 girls from my orlando high school were in the same pub tour! how weird! our guide was a funny scad student who went to DA in jacksonville - again, how weird!

after the tour was a jumble of bars and beers that ended with half of our party at a drag show! you'll have to see it to believe it, so check out the photos & videos here. don't miss the man cankles on ursula - woof! after the show, karen and i decided to make a walk for it and wandered around savannah, pizza in hand, until we finally made it back to the mansion - last ladies home.

the next morning, stef, karen and i scooted out of the mansion to meet kristina for breakfast at firefly cafe - yum! - before we hit the road back to jax. all in all, it was a very memorable weekend! i was so happy to be able to share this special time with marisa and can't wait for the wedding!
