25th Birthday Weekend in Photos

Hi everyone! Happy fall! Apparently yesterday was the official first day of fall? It was finally feeling like it over here this weekend when it rained all day Saturday….but don’t worry, we’re back into the 80’s again today! Just when I thought I could finally break out my boots…

Tomorrow is my birthday (LAME! Middle of the week birthdays are the worst.) so I decided to celebrate this weekend. I had an amazing time, I’m so grateful all my friends came out! Some from far away too :)

The weekend actually started off with a different birthday celebration- Greg’s birthday was on Thursday, so in addition to liquoring him up at the dodgeball bar that night, we did what this group ALWAYS does for birthdays, which is Karaoke at the Distillery. I did two songs (see above) and had a ton of fun! Everyone else stayed and closed down the bar, but Lisa and I headed out early…I knew I’d be waking up early to run and I wanted to rest up for my party!

What was going to be a 4-4.5 mile run turned into 5 miles! I started off at a super super slow pace, so I decided to push myself to go for distance instead of speed. I ended up speeding up anyway, haha. Afterward, my brother took me to Kaiser for a doctor’s appointment and bought me a ton of goodies afterward for my Glow in the Dark themed pub crawl!

After praying that the rain would go away (it did!), people started coming over and the glow in the dark paint fun began. There was some seriously awesome body art going on. We actually skipped the first bar on my list because everyone was so into the glow in the dark paint I had set up at my place. I opted for a simple heart, but don’t you worry, there was also glow in the dark glitter pretty much covering my entire body 😀

So many people came out and got into the theme! My friend Kristin crocheted a bunch of headbands for everyone, everyone was wearing glow bracelets, and most people at least attempted to wear these seizure-inducing shutter shades that Lisa bought me. I had so much fun, and I’m sure we were quite a sight at the bars!

On Sunday morning, I woke up with a mysterious scrape on my face and have determined I sleepwalked. Or….probably more like sleep fell. After cleaning up my apartment a bit, I had a totally relaxing lazy recovery day at Roger’s- watched Star Trek: Into Darkness and snuggled with my 2 new favorite pugs, Pierre & Yoda. :-)

Insert a forgot-to-take-a-picture of sushi for dinner and that was my weekend!

Have a great week!

What’s the best theme party you’ve ever been to?

What is your karaoke go-to song?

  1. Girl, it looks like you have a black eye! Better make up a good story for that one 😉 As a side note, I love waking up on Saturday and Sunday mornings to your previous night’s instagram festivities, haha – they always give me a good laugh! And cause some jealousy because I wish I were with you 😉 Happy early birthday!

    • Haha luckily my bosses haven’t asked- they probably assume I was beat by my (nonexistent) boyfriend or something and would rather just not know ahha. And I’m glad I provide some entertainment!
