I had a GREAT birthday weekend with my family. So much love so much to share. I can’t believe I am 25…crazy! But, I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a great year!
Get ready for a post with lots of pictures 🙂
Friday, my coworkers surprised me with delicious cupcakes (one of them is a baker!!), a card, and a yummy scented candle. It was so thoughtful of them to think of me on my birthday.
Seriously though, this was the BEST cupcake I have ever tasted.
After work, Brian and I cleaned up our apartment and ourselves, popped a little champagne (from Aldi!) and got ready to have some of his dental school friends over.
I made a batch of cookies and guacamole for everyone to enjoy…yum!
It was a fun night! I was up a bit later than I had planned, but it was worth it 🙂
Saturday morning, I met up with my running group for an 8 mile run. Unfortunately, my watch wouldn’t sync up at the beginning of the run, so I was about a quarter mile off on my mileage…oh well!
It was still a great run and a good way to kick off the day.
After my run, I was starving so I made a yummy smoothie bowl topped with fruit and peanut butter and showered up and got dressed for the day.
Once breakfast was done, I packed all my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks for the week. Man, did that feel good to get it done early!
Around 11am, Brian and I hopped in the car with our friend Sara to head to Andrea’s wedding party in New Harmony, IN.
Of course we made a Starbucks pit stop. My first frappaccino in quite some time!!
The celebration was really cute! I loved all the burlap and lace and the flowers were so cute. Kyle and Andrea were so happy! 🙂 I love celebrating wedding fun with friends.
After the wedding party Sara, Brian and I headed back up to Indy. Brian and I were actually pretty exhausted by the time we got home, so we grabbed something to eat and then headed to bed shortly after. It was glorious to get caught up on some sleep!
Sunday morning I actually slept in until 7am! Happy birthday to me!
I laced up my shoes and hit the pavement for an easy 3.5 mile run just to get my body movin’.
After the run, I got showered up and headed to my sister’s apartment for a birthday brunch for Brian and I (his birthday is May 7).
Everyone was there! Even my brother and his girlfriend were able to make it 🙂
Kenny (my brother) and his girlfriend helping mom in the kitchen.
Brenna and her boyfriend, David.
We all enjoyed some yummy homemade bloody marys made by yours truly.
And brunch was delicious! Lots of fruit, breakfast potatoes, crockpot french toast, salmon quiche. Yum!!
And after all that, we all somehow saved room for…strawberry ice cream cake!
My brother made me a cute card (OK I’m not THAT old!)
And my family got Brian and I a white water rafting trip to use when we move to Colorado!! Brian and I both really love being active and trying new things, so we cannot wait to use this trip.
The family 🙂
After brunch and presents, everyone headed out while Brenna, Mom and I headed to see the Butler Ballet’s Cinderella.
It was a long ballet, but it was so good! I love going to live performances of just about any kind, so it was the perfect way to spend my birthday afternoon.
When the show was over, I came home to whip up a quick dinner of raw zoodles (zucchini noodles) and carrot noodles topped with some avocado dill dressing, tomato, and dijon salmon. It was so light and refreshing. Definitely a warm-weather meal.
And because I it was still my birthday I ended the night with something sweet.
A piece of a cupcake from my work friends and some cake batter ice cream from Chocolate Covered Katie.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! It truly was a special and wonderful weekend.
Bring it on 25!
