Savannah Eats: B&D Burgers and the Beach Bar

Since my sweet "Fancee" (we don't like the word fiance for some reason. Maybe because it's too hard to spell!) lives in Savannah while in pharmacy school, I will be making quite a few trips down there over the next few years. He's kind of a foodie, and is always going to these neat restaurants all over town with his classmates. We've started making it a point to revisit all of these cool places when I come into town, which is really fun! I like trying all different kinds of foods, and it adds even more excitement to our few and far between weekends together.

I took last Friday off and went down early so that I could be there as soon as he got out of class at noon. We went to Five Guy's for lunch on Whitemarsh Island where he lives, which I realize is something that I have at home so it's definitely not super exciting, although it is super delicious! If I had known we were going to go to a burger place for dinner, I'm sure we would have gone to the Yum Yum Chinese buffet like he so desperately wanted (okay, so he's not always a glamorous foodie).

That Friday night, we went downtown and met his classmates at B&D Burgers on Congress Street. Their website claims to have been rated top 10 best burger in the U.S., and I would tend to believe them. I didn't order a burger because I for some reason felt guilty about ordering red meat twice in one day which was an odd thing for my carnivore self. I did however, order the chicken tenders and onion rings, and they were pretty much the best chicken tenders and onion rings ever. The Fancee did order the Ft. Pulaski burger, topped with onion rings and it was absolutely delicious. The Congress St. location has an amazing outdoor patio complete with comfy couch seating, corn hole, and the Braves game projected onto the wall. The location, coupled with an amazing Mojito (or two!) made for a really fun night!

For Saturday, I requested a beach day. Now, Tybee and I don't really get along, as every time I've been there it's either been too cold, too windy, or too jelly-fishy. But I had literally not laid out on a beach in two years so I didn't care. We went down early in the afternoon to the North Beach by the lighthouse, where it's less crowded and a little quieter. No sooner did we get in the water did the Fancee get stung by jellyfish. He also proceeded to get extremely sunburned in about 10 minutes, so my day of a beach bum quickly turned into being a nurse! His pain quickly turned into hunger (always) so we wandered back up to the hole-in-the-wall restaurant we had seen on our way in. I'm so glad we did. North Tybee Beach Bar is amazing! The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for: cool, relaxing, and fun, and the prices and food were awesome too! I had a delicious Caprese salad, so refreshing and cool after the hot sun, and the Fancee had a wonderful lamb burger (are we seeing a trend?). We shared a basket of sweet potato fries that were drizzled in balsamic and honey. Who knew that would be good? All of their specials sounded great, so I know we will be frequenting this spot again soon. 

My Purse-onal Favorites

I'm on this really big handbag kick right now. Like, it's all I can think about. I want a new one (or three) for my birthday and Christmas. I just can't decide. I'm also on this really big Dooney and Burke thing. They were one of my first favorite designers back in middle school when the multi-color initial designs came out--so fun! I still love all their products and they've come out with some pretties as of late that I must have. Maybe the Bag Fairy will come visit sooner than later...

I seriously feel like I have to have this one. Like, yesterday. I fall in love with anything black and brown 
because it really goes with everything! And now with the puppy baby, I need 
a good tote. 
Love this bag, but I think it would be so hard to commit to a brightly colored bag.
While I do wear pink most days, I feel like this would clash on the coral days too much. 
Plus I don't like to change out my purse that often.

I think this bag is absolutely darling, and it comes in pink, too! 

Puppy Photo Shoot

One of my sweet friends (who I now get to see all the time as she will be a Senior at the school I am working at!) took some 4 month old pictures of Layla and me the the other day. She did such a good job, and I can't wait to get the prints. I think I'm a little obsessed with my cutie patootie dog.

Layla Claire has a big couple of weeks coming up: her first trip to Savannah, Ga., to see her daddy (we haven't seen my sweet fiance in six weeks!), a visit from her Grandpa next weekend, and our biggest trip so far to Edenton, N.C., to see my family over Labor Day weekend. Such excitement for such a tiny pup--she is officially 3.2 pounds so far!
