Daniel and I weren't sure what we were going to do this year for Thanksgiving. Then one of his classmates and his wife didn't have anywhere to go either so they came over to our place. They brought over 5lbs of snow crab legs! I'll take that over dry turkey any day.

The remains of the poor little crab legs.

My beautiful turkey and cheese platter (not really). Daniel made fun of me for getting turkey at the deli for thanksgiving, but it was a lot better and easier than anything I could have made.

It's not Thanksgiving without homemade rolls. This is my first attempt and there is definitely room for improvement.

Daniel's amazing parmesan and garlic potato wedges.

Neither of us really like pumpkin pie so I made an icecream pie instead. It was amazing.

This is a Thanksgiving tree I made in Young Womens. It is a tree branch in a little pot and then you write what you are thankful for on the leaves.

This is our new member of the family Cosmo! We named him Cosmo which is short for cosmic brownie, since he's brown. He is a tonkinese kitty and I love him so much. We got him from a lady in Michigan and my brother drove him down to us last weekend. So, thanks Grant for driving him down and also thanks to my Mom for babysitting him for a couple days. It is hard to get a good picture of this guy because he is so fast, unless he is napping, which he does a lot. I'm sure there will be more Cosmo pictures to come.

Savannah Part 1

The moment you have all been waiting for (if there is anyone out there looking at my blog). Savannah! Daniel and I have been in Savannah now for two months and we have been loving it. The city is beautiful and the people have been really friendly. We live right in the historic district of Savannah which is the largest historic district in the US. It is 2.5 square miles. We love the location we can walk and bike almost everywhere. Maybe not to the beach. Our apartment is in part of a carriage house. The carriage house is where the slaves or servants would live. It is separate from the main house. It is really small but we have managed to find a place for everything and now feels like we could live here for awhile. We definitely don't have room for kids, sorry mom. We do have a blow up mattress if anyone wants to come and visit!

The house in front is the main building which is also split up into apartments and the little one in the back is our carriage house. I imagine there was a garden in between the two buildings at one point. The buildings date back to the 1860's.

This is the full view of the carriage house. We live in the end of the house closest to the street. Pretty charming eh?


Other side of the kitchen. We had to cover up a cool fireplace so we could fit all of our food and junk.

Family Room. (sorry the picture isn't that great)

Still the family room. Or you could call this our dinning room.

Another view of the family room. This is my favorite fireplace. They don't work but are charming.

Our stairs. They are a bit scary and steep.

Bedroom. Our bed is squashed between a wall and another fireplace.

Another view of the bedroom

Bathroom. This is by far the nicest bathroom Daniel and I have had in an apartment.

Our laundry room/closest, genius!

Savannah Part 2

Here are a couple of my favorite things down here in Savannah. There is so much more I still need to photograph, but this is a good start.

The live oak trees. They can grow wider than they grow tall.

The Spanish Moss. I think it is so pretty, but you don't want to touch it because it is infested with bugs. I hear of tourist putting the stuff in their suitcases as a souvenir. yikes.

This oak tree that gobbled up a brick. It really is stuck in there.

The Tabby Sidewalks. Tabby is cement with oyster shells in it.

Little Swan Fountain. This is actually part of the huge fountain in Forsyth Park.

The Lafayette Fountain. This is my favorite fountain. I love the sea horses.

The Crab Shack. This is one of my favorite restaurants.

Tybee Island. The beach is only 30 minutes away and so much fun.
