May 24, Something New

Got my new hiking boots yesterday and tried them out for the first time this morning.  I am ready for the mountains now ;)

May 23, Technology

So I love my new iphone.  And one of my favorite apps is the Nike + app that records my running and syncs with my music.  

And I love that I actually ran 2 consecutive miles this morning, for the first time in almost a year.  It felt really good.

May 20, Something you can't live without

Let's be honest

Life without my Chi is pretty different ;)

May 13, Mum

My "mum" is currently in Europe, so here is a glimpse of the daily messages I get to assure she is okay ;)

May 12, Something that makes you happy

Yesterday was a very fun and happy day.

But even with everything I did yesterday, this is the only picture I took:

But it does make me happy, especially when it was the result of an early morning text from my best friend that went something like this, "I'll get the tacos, you get the drinks.  We'll meet in the middle to get balloons."

And it just made me laugh thinking back on lots of early morning breakfasts during college.  And then I realized yesterday had been exactly 5 years since graduation (seriously, where did 5 years go?).  But I was reminded yesterday of the sweet friendships I have been blessed with and I am so grateful the Lord has made them last and grow through several changes and distance (yes Nicki, I'm talking about you... can't wait til you are in the same state again!) and the new friendships He's brought into my life.

So friendships.  And Sonic drinks.  Those are the things that make me happy.

May 11, Kitchen

Not gonna lie... my kitchen was one of the main reasons I wanted this apartment.  I love it

May 9, Something you do every day

Cannot remember the last day that I didn't drive somewhere.  I've actually put 3000 miles on my car in the last 5 weeks... I think I can stand to spend a little less time in my car.  But I am grateful for a good car that gets me where I need to go and has made it through the past almost 5 years of abuse at my job!

May 8, A Smell you Adore

My friend Julie bought me this air freshener for my car and it is simply amazing :)

May 6, You

So all these pictures are from yesterday, because yesterday was a very full day.

I started the day with Zumba, which I love.  I have found I'm not a fan of all Zumba classes, but the girl who teaches the Saturday morning class makes it so much fun.

Then I headed to breakfast and catching up with Sami and Katie

After breakfast, Katie and I picked up Melissa and met Laura downtown to go to a craft fair.  There was some neat stuff, but none of us were looking to get too much so we didn't stay long.  We ended up walking around Bishop Arts District and ending our afternoon with margaritas at Gloria's!

After being home for a little while, I picked Katie back up for another event.  Every year my brother and sister-in-law host Cinco de Reedo at their house and Katie was sweet enough to go with me.  We enjoyed fajitas and catching up with everyone.

And today included church and lunch with the 20s group.  Now I am enjoying a little time at home before a meeting tonight.

May 5, Bird

I went to a craft fair with a couple of friends today and this was one of the cute clutches available... complete with bird in the pattern

May 4, Fun

Yesterday was a lot of fun.  It started about halfway through my workday when I had lunch with one of my former co-workers and her precious kids

Isn't he adorable?!  Stephanie has been such a blessing to me since I first started with ECI.  I miss her terribly since she began staying home last year, but am grateful for our monthly lunch dates to catch up/

Then last night was communion dinner with the 20s group.  Unfortunately I was too busy having fun to actually take any pictures ;)  It was a great night of fellowship and sharing a meal together though!

And even though this picture isn't from yesterday, it makes me laugh every time I see it...

If that doesn't say "fun" I don't know what does :)

May 3, Something you Wore Today

I started my day with  a run (I actually ran 2/3 of my 3 miles today... I was pretty proud of myself considering how long it's been since I hit the pavement).

I never thought I could see myself spending more than a few dollars on socks.  Then my mom got me a pair of these running socks (in blue) with my new shoes for Christmas and I fell in love.  So I just recently bought this pair.  Seriously, as soon as I put them on my feet feel better.  They have compression and padding in just the right places.  So what better for my picture of something I wore?  (and in case you can't tell, this picture was taken around 5:50 this morning with my feet up on my car door as I got my shoes on to run)

May 2: Skyline

Here is a view of the skyline from my run yesterday afternoon

May Photo a Day

So it's time for May Photo a Day.  And since day 1 is "peace" I couldn't pass up some pictures from our camping trip this past weekend.  I know those were technically in April, but so many of them I look at and just feel peaceful.  It was absolutely beautiful at the Wildlife Refuge we camped and hiked at.
