Meg in the City-Day 1

Kimmie named the trip Meg in the City and I loved it.  I'm going to start with Friday, because Thursday was mostly traveling, nothing very exciting.

Friday was Kimmie's birthday, so we set out to celebrate.  The day started off kind of rocky and I was really worried about Kimmie having a good birthday, but in the end, I'd like to think it turned out to be a pretty good day.

We started with lunch at Leland Tea Company.  Kimmie picked out the Tea for Two which was just perfect (minus the cucumbers).  If you're ever in SF, I strongly recommend checking out Leland Tea Company.  Lunch was amazing.  And the tea was wonderful as well.  Look at the presentation!    

After lunch, we dealt with the fun SF traffic and headed over to Tru Day Spa for a Moji-Toe pedicure and a Vanilla Sky manicure.  We got an amazing deal on the service through Groupon.  It was a very relaxing experience and we even got to enjoy a wonderful mojito while being pampered.

What else can a girl do for some fun after pampering?  Cupcakes and shopping, of course.  So, we headed to Union Square.  While the cupcakes looked delicious, the unfortunately were disappointing.  They have a Macy's and Nordstroms to die for.  We're talking like 5 floors.   

After shopping, we headed back to Kimmie's apartment to get prettied up and then off to Kimmie's birthday dinner at Absinthe.  We enjoyed steak, olives, french fries, and a cheese plate.  And of course, drinks. 


After dinner, we called it a night.  We had to get our rest for Napa on Saturday.
