If you missed my first recap of our Savannah trip, you can go HERE! :)
On Monday, our last day in Savannah, our flight was leaving at 6 pm and we had a taxi schedule to pick us up at the hotel at 4, so we had plenty of time that day to do what we wanted.
We checked out of our hotel and headed down the street to Paula Deen's restaurant, Lady & Sons (which was only 2 blocks away!) around 11 am.
We put down our name and asked for a table for 2. They said they didn't have a table available until 2 pm. Yes, I'm talking about 3 hours later. That's how much of a tourist attraction this place is.
Nate knew that I wasn't leaving GA until I ate here, so we agreed, and off we went to walk around town and kill some more time.
We saw lots more things on our journey that we weren't able to get pictures of or see the days before..
The town has a St. Patty's Day headquarters! Everyone was telling us that we have gotta come back in March. Next to Chicago, they have the largest celebration.
Reppin' the Girl Scouts! ;) (She's the founder) Fun fact: At her wedding, when the guests were throwing rice at the end, a grain went into her ear and she was deaf from then on in that ear. Yeaaah, no rice at my wedding!
Okay, now it's been about 2 1/2 hours or so, we headed to the gift shop in the restaurant..
We get some souvenirs and before we know it, our name is called and we our taken to our table. I loved our waiter and asked him a bajillion questions about whether or not he had met Paula and how often she comes to the restaurant. He said she comes every couple of months and her sons come couple of weeks. He said she is EXACTLY like she is on TV, so warm, friendly & welcoming to everyone she meets. I am not surprised at all.
After a lot of anxiety, I finally decided on the buffet and Nate decided on the pulled pork sandwich.
Then came dessert! I had 4 kinds to choose from. I wanted all 4 left on the table.. but I chose banana puddin' ;) I was kind enough to share with Nate; I'm such a good girlfriend!
After we were all good & miserably full, it was time to head back home to Dallas!
We had SUCH a fun trip, and I'm so happy that I am able to say that I got to visit Paula Deen's restaurant. I'll definitely go back for some of that southern goodness! :)
