My Birthday Week

What better way to celebrate my 31st birthday than a last minute trip to San Francisco.
I can’t believe it has come and gone so fast. We had an amazing time, I wish we were still on vacation.

We essentially started our trip on Sunday evening. Flying stand-by with my mom’s flight benefits always has me worried. At about 8:30 on Sunday night, my dad checked the flight loads for me and there was going to be no way we would make it out of town. [Insert Panic Mode] After an hour or so of searching prices online, we ending up buying a one-way ticket instead of taking the chance on flying stand-by.

So we finally made it out of town at 830 Monday morning. It was an easy flight without complications.

Monday’s arrival to San Francisco was beautiful. I have never been there and was very impressed with everything. I am very big on traveling and seeing everything that I can, so of course I pushed myself to visit and see everything.

Fisherman’s Wharf:

 Pier 39

  Rode the Trolleys

 

Took and Bay Cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge to see Alcatraz. (Who knew you had to book an Alcaatraz tour – 6 Weeks in Advance). So we were only able to see it from the water.

 A bus tour of the city to see all the sites from a double-decker bus

Ghiradelli Square

Overall we had an amazing time and I can’t wait to visit again. I may have pushed myself a little too hard when my feet looked like this on the second evening:

I probably should have rested a little more often 🙂

More on our trip home later…

    Wow, check out those feet. It shows that you had a lot of adventures. Way to take advantage of a weekend away with your husband before the baby arrives.
