December is my friend

Thank you December for doing me right! I have so many good things to share, and I hope you will take a minute and read!

For one, one of my friends in Jacksonville asked me to send a resume to her sister about a possible position. (Yay!) AND right after that, the company in New Hampshire/Boston Area called me for a second interview!! Sooo... on Monday, I have YET ANOTHER interview. Woot!

THEN... I took off Thursday for a trip/volunteer thing to Savannah, Georgia with one of my best friends here in Macon - Tonya.

Now.. let the pics tell the story:



My trip started out with a two hour wait at Burger King with my friend Tonya, for a volunteer to join us on the two hour drive. We cooled off with $2 Iced Mocha Coffees.. thumbs up from me!

This is my friend Tonya... she and I enjoyed the coffees... I've known Tonya for about 10 years now.. she is a delight...

We met up with two volunteers and enjoyed some yummy Mexican in Savannah...

This is where we stayed. However, we drove in at night - let's just say there were TONS of raccoons and deer!



This was the cabin I stayed in...

After Tonya and I unpacked - we sat up and talked until 1am, and then I settled with my book!


Later - I went for a hike on the campgrounds.... here is what I saw!














This is one of the pics I took with my cell - I love the filters you can play with...





Later- it was time to earn my keep - I helped decorate the Girl Scout lodge for the upcoming Whoville Holiday Jubilation (Dr. Seuss themed party - How the Grinch Stole Christmas..)


One of the volunteers got really creative - she grabbed spanish moss, spray painted a few pine cones and added some balls for extra effect..

My job was to hang lights... whoa.. I'm beat - STILL..

After I finished - and was pouring sweat, I went - took a shower, and had another cup of coffee!

Then we headed down to River Street for dinner..

One of my favorite places to eat was Bernie's on River Street -

I always get the Stuffed Shrimp (FULL of cheese and fried!)


We popped down to the Savannah Candy shop....         

Headed to Moon River Brewing Company - USA Today voted this one of the top 10 haunted places in America..


We also sampled Pralines..


I got a good night sleep and got dressed up 'FESTIVAL' for the event...

Tons of crafts were made - as well as a reading of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas.."

We shared Holiday Traditions...


I thought these were a cute craft - Baby food jars - glue an ornament to the lid (spray paint lid) - add glitter and stuff - and boom - homemade snow globe..

Then we all made non newtonian Ooblick!

Over all - was both fun and exhausting in a good way... You know?

How was your weekend??
