My Friday Five

What is it about things coming at you in 3's?  That old tale definitely rang true for me this week, starting with a visit to the animal hospital this week with my Charlie. Thankfully he is back home, but under a watchful eye for he has not fully returned to his normal self.  Luckily the week went up from there!

1| I'm loving my #100happydays challenge, it is keeping me accountable to find the silver linings, even on those days, you know those days where it doesn't feel like there is anything to be happy about.  Have you joined the challenge yet?  If not, you totally should!  You can follow along with me on instagram!

2|  On Wednesday I celebrated my birthday, my 31st birthday to be exact.  For the most part I actually like birthdays, you get your own special day - in fact I am a firm believer that birthday celebrations can and should be carried on throughout your birthday week.  I will admit though that 31 feels a lot older than 30, I don't know why, it just does!

3|  Did you catch that picture in my #100happydays challenge?  My most awesome birthday present ever from my husband!  I've been wanting to splurge on a nice new camera ever since I started this blog, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it.  Martin got me my first dslr camera and I am so excited to start to learn how to use it.  Any advice or favorite tutorials out there that you want to pass my way, I would be glad to receive them!

4| Not only did Martin get me the most awesome birthday gift ever, he also brought me home a gluten free cake which definitely gets bonus points because you have to have cake on your birthday!

5| And last, but not least, not only is it my birthday week, but Sunday Martin will celebrate his 31st birthday as well, so we get to spend the weekend celebrating our birthdays together!  Happy early Birthday Martin, I love you tons, to enjoying many more years together!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Father's Day.  Hopefully I will have some bathroom progress to show you all next week!
