Soulmate's Birthday Weekend

My soulmate is turning 30 on Thursday, so that meant this weekend was her annual party weekend. We went down to celebrate with her last year, so this is quickly becoming an annual thing. Boyfriend and I hopped in the car immediately after I got out of class Friday afternoon to begin our trek.

We stopped for dinner along the way and boyfriend got the road trip essential. A double shot of espresso.

We got to the city a little after 9. The bridge is always so beautiful at night.

Saturday morning began with a 5.5 mile run around Google Land. Her husband took me on a lovely loop.

It was a little warmer than I am used to. I was dripping when I returned to their house.

After a shower and coffee, the girls went to the mall. Soulmate is pregnant, so we went to get her some maternity clothes. They have a pillow you can wear that adds three months to your belly. This is what she will look like 8 months pregnant.

I've also been keeping a secret from you guys.

Just kidding! This is actually me.

We got ready to head back to the city for the night when we returned.

The first stop was their hotel. The view of the city was amazing. The party was in SoMo (South of Market), so that's where they were staying. We ended up across town in The Sunset at boyfriend's cousin's apartment.

Soulmate's husband had rented out The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. It was amazing. Food just kept coming and coming. And I could order anything on the menu gluten free. Cheese? Bread? Melted? I was in heaven!

My soulmate was having a wonderful time.

Boyfriend was having a pretty good time as well.

We hung out for awhile, eating and talking and laughing.

Around 8:30, we walked to the bowling alley where we had our own lanes available. The alley was the swankiest bowling alley I've ever seen. It was right across the street from ATT Park.

Let's talk about my bowling skills. I'm probably the worst bowler on the planet. Let's check my score. I'd be CrayCrayRayRay.

At least I had fashion on my side. I'm really good at starting fashion trends. Be on the look out for this in Vogue.

A greasy breakfast was needed this morning for a few members of our party. Of course, I was bright eyed and bushy tailed because I was Sober Sally all night.

Then we were on our way home. But today is Sunday Runday, and it was beautiful in the city, so we had to make a pit stop to get part of my long run out of the way. We found this random little trail to run on.

Boyfriend was an awesome sport and ran with me. Well. He ran too. I kept looping back around to check on him.

The view was absolutely amazing today. It's not usually this clear.

I finished my run once we got home.

It was a wonderful little weekend away from home. I love that the city is such a short trek from here that we can do it in a weekend. I have this week off from my placement, which means a lot of studying. I will leave you with an adorable picture from family dinner.

What is your favorite city to visit?
