Friends In Town

Saturday morning began with first class service from our good friend. She's fabulous.

It was also someone's half birthday (already!!!!!!!!!!!) so I stopped by my sister's house to watch the main event: eating her first food.

She was confused about the yam. But she and Bailey had a really long talk about it, and Bailey can't wait for her first food.

The main event of the day was when my soul mate and her husband got into town. They are I siting for the weekend. My mom made homemade Mac and cheese and we played board games.

Today, I was up before the rest of the house and decided to get my long run in early so I could spend the rest of the day with my guests. I was so pleased to see that it was absolutely beautiful outside, especially since it had rained nonstop (quite literally NONSTOP) since Friday morning. There was no way I wasn't going to run outside.

It was so lovely to be out in the fresh air.  I mean, look at that bright blue sky!  Apparently this was the eye of the storm, so it's been great while it's lasted.

I was incredibly thirsty, so I rushed straight into my dad's house and gulped some water without cooling off, so I finished my cool down on the treadmill.

After a shower, the group headed to my soul mate's favorite bagel shop (we are going all four days she's here). They have gluten free bagels, but I opted for a salad. And a huge coffee.

Then we made our way south to boyfriend's home town. It's actually a little tourist town with Victorian houses and little shops. We conveniently went while they were having their annual volunteer fire department game day. We had no idea it was happening, but we pretended like we went on purpose.

Then we made our way to the beach where my mom was in her natural habitat.

We also did a little hiking.

It felt so good to be out in nature. If I go too long without it, I don't feel quite right.

We ended our adventure at a fabulous little vegetarian resturaunt where I got chili and when I declined the bread, he offered to sub a gluten free chocolate chip muffin. Umm. Yes please.

Notice the compression socks. I did wear them all day. Now we are back at the house just relaxing and hanging out. My mom is catching up on technology. Apparently she has had too much nature...

I get an entire week off this week, so I am enjoying tonight like it's a Saturday night. I'm in my pjs at 7:30pm and will be asleep by 9. I'm so wild.

Do you get a long weekend?


  1. You have all week off? ME TOO! SKYPE DATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! :) :)
    It looks like you had a fabulous weekend. I need fabulous weather. I'm going to talk to Gunshow and see if he wants to leave tonight for Cali ;-)

  2. Having guests in town is soooo fun. I love the views from your hike! And that chili looks freaking amazing. How cool is it that a GF muffin was just waiting to be substituted in for bread?!

  3. Wow those pics are gorgeous. :) It reminds me of when we drove north of San Fran on Route 1 to Stinson Beach. That was one of the most magical days of our life!

  4. You have the week off?! Nice! I'm kind of jealous of your nature time. :)
