1. 20HappysDaysinMay
I’ve been participating in The Daily Tay’s Instagram Challenge – #20HappyDaysinMay. It’s been fun looking through everyone’s photos and coming up with fun images to share. I think I’ll join in on more instagram challenges in the future.

2. Run, Run, Run Away Baby
I’ve been killing it with the 0-5k app. The progress I’ve seen in my running is incredible. I can now fun for 20 minute stretches, which is insane for me. I’ve never been able to do that before.

3. Books, Books, Books
This past week I was able to catch up on my reading. I’m now back on schedule for my goodreads reading challenge – I’ve finished 18 of my 50 books. This week I read A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray, The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins and Justice Calling by Annie Bellet.

4. The Big 2-5.
Thursday was my 25th Birthday. My Aunt also got married thursday, so it was an eventful day. They just had a small, quick wedding at City Hall – but most of my family was able to be there. My parents took me out for a birthday lunch and then  Ivan and I had a birthday dinner together. We picked up some food from a local joint and had an impromptu picnic. I would spend every birthday like that if I could. The bandage dress is gorgeous. And we also have a wedding veil for this.

5. B-day BBQ
Tonight we’re having a bunch of people over for a joint b-day/going away party. Ivan’s birthday is on Sunday and we’re leaving for D.C. next week. I’m incredibly excited to have everyone over, but I also know I’m going to miss everyone.

Today I am linking up with:
Tif at Bright on a Budget for High Five For Friday
The Farmer’s Wife for Oh, Hey Friday!
Fitting It All In for Five Things

    Also, what are you doing in DC? It’s a great place to see!

    • my boyfriend is a law student and he’s got a clerkship with the Navy at the Pentagon. I’m going with him for the summer – since I’m a graphic designer and can basically work from anywhere :)

      • Congrats! Enjoy DC! It’s so beautiful this time of year. Definitely check out the monuments at night, it’s a very cool way to see them!

  • First time here and love your banner!
