Memories that last a lifetime

Hey everyone!!
    So this past weekend I got to go to Cincinnati and visit my old college roommate Bre, with my other roommate Sam. It was so good to catch up on everyone's life and relive some old times!

Here are some pictures from the weekend!
Reunited and it feels so good!

so much green!

beautiful park near Bre's house!

Now that I'm finally getting back into the old routine of a normal week since I have nowhere to go this weekend, I've been exercising consistently during my lunch break with my coworkers and after work as well. It really does help my mood. I have a weigh in tonight so I'll let you all know how I did!!

Oh, my peek of the day yesterday had to be volunteering at Children's Hospital and getting to take one of the patients to a princess party they had complete with Snow White and Cinderella, storybook making, and of course, tiaras!! It was so much fun to see all the little kids with a smile on their face :)

"Go Girl, It's your Birthday"

This last week has been a crazy one! I turned 23 on Monday and spent all last weekend celebrating my birthday. On Friday my friends and I went out to Buckhead Saloon in Station Square because they have some awesome drink specials for the birthday girl and guests. I was able to get PENNY drinks!! Yes, that’s right every drink of mine was 1 cent! It was really nice to get all my friends together and let loose and have a good time. We don’t get to do that very often anymore. We also booked a couple hotel rooms to stay in after so no one had to worry about driving or taxis. It was like a big sleepover and I had a really fun time! I'll share a couple pictures of the night (the safe un-embarrassing ones at least!)

I wish I had a group shot but this is the best I could find!

On Saturday I got to spend the day with Jon and then celebrate my birthday with my family. It was a nice celebration with lots of yummy food and my favorite- ice cream cake! I was completely asleep by 11pm and slept until 9 the next morning because I was so exhausted from the night before and had no time for a nap. Before I knew it, it was Sunday and I was getting ready for another week of work! Although I celebrated my birthday all weekend, I decided to end it on my actual birthday on Monday and go out to dinner with my close friend Sam at one of my favorite restaurants, Mad Mex yummmm!

This weekend has really showed me how blessed I am to have the friends and family that I do. I really couldn’t imagine my life without any of them and I’m really feeling lately that someone does not have to be “blood” to be considered my family. I feel so loved and couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who was there for me to celebrate my birthday.

I’ll end this post with a quote that my friend had wrote on one of my birthday cards, “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
