Happy Five on Friday. I love doing these Link Ups and getting to visit some new faces and stories. I am a fairly new blogger so this is a fun way to start connecting with other amazing bloggers! Please take a minute to follow my blog :)
One. . .
I am so excited it’s Friday because I get to spend tonight and tomorrow with my husband. Being a firefighter, he works 24-hour shifts so having a couple days together is really nice. We are going to spend the day floating on Hagg Lake tomorrow and I can’t wait to get some relaxing time together in the sun! Maybe someday we will splurge on one of these sweet floating tubes!
Two . . .
This week I have been really motivated by lots of reorganizing and repurposing blog posts and its really making me want to redo some stuff in our house! I think my next biggest project will be our office. For as long as we’ve be in our house I have yet to be really happy with how the office looks. I’ve been trying to get some inspiration through other ladies blogs and some pinterest shopping. If you have any suggestions or inspiration that you love, send them my way! Here’s some images of things I’m loving right now!
Three . . .
Its getting closer to my summer runs and I’m trying to kick my butt in to shape. With only 35 days until Hood To Coast and 43 days until the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon, I have to increase my running! Hood To Coast is a 198-mile relay race where teams of 12 take turns running from Mt Hood to the Oregon Coast. My leg of the race includes close to 15 miles over a day in a half. This year’s event will include over 12,000 runners, and I am excited to be one of them! Luckily Dan is trying to train for Portland Marathon, which is in October so it helps to have a running buddy to keep me motivated, and keep me from stopping to walk! I’m hoping to get a couple runs in this weekend…I’ll let you know how it goes!
Four . . .
Tomorrow night Dan and I are going to dinner to celebrate our anniversary with my parents. When deciding where to go, really only one place jumped in to my mine. Casa Del Matador in downtown Portland. This place has amazing Mexican food, and THE BEST margaritas, not to mention an amazing happy hour menu! We took my parents there for happy hour a few months ago and they fell in love with it! I can’t wait for some fun family time and amazing food!
Five . . .
Lastly, I am loving this new necklace I purchased from Wire N Whimsy. I wear it every day my husband is on shift and its just perfect. On the back it even says Pleas Keep Him Safe. Every morning he leaves for work I HAVE to tell him to be safe. I know it won’t necessarily keep him safe, but it makes me feel better to remind him that he means so much to me and I will always worry. I am so proud of everything he does, but still worry every time I hear a siren!
I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Please again feel free to follow this new blog journey of mine and let me know how you like or relate to my posts! Enjoy your Friday! TGIF
