As you can tell from Emily’s face, we left San Francisco today. We got up bright and early so we could hit Mama’s one last time before getting kicked out of our AirBnB. Even though we got there at 7:30am, we didn’t get in until almost 9–and they OPEN at 8! Cray.
After we ate, we dummy-checked the apartment, returned the rental car, and took the bus to the train to the airport. Now, our plan originally was just to hang out at the airport all day. The flight we booked didn’t leave until 5:45pm. However, when we were checking in at 11am, the woman at the desk said, “Oh hey, there’s a flight leaving at 11:45 that has seats available. Would you wanna be on that one?” YES! The awesome Virgin lady switched us over, checked our bag (which we got below the weight limit this time), and sent us along to security. It was beautiful!
Side Note: Emily and I have discovered that Cabin Select is the only way to fly. It costs about $30 extra, but you get free food and drinks, free entertainment, dedicated overhead storage, and SO MUCH leg room. Seriously, it’s great. I never thought it’d be worth it to upgrade seats–and I still don’t think it’s worth it to bump to First Class–but Cabin Select is where it’s at!
Since we got home earlier than expected, we had time to drive to Aledo and pick up Arri. We also chatted with my dad and gave him his SF-souvenir birthday present. Tomorrow we’ll open the shiny new wedding presents that arrived while we were away. Hooray!
