My Birthday! {24}

Yeah, its a Thursday and I'm just now getting around to blogging about my birthday weekend, but I don't really mind. Life just gets in the way sometimes! But oh well, I'm here! Let's roll on!

Friday afternoon we headed to INDY! I always forget how close Cincinnati is to so many awesome cities...and luckily this was under a 2 hour drive for us. With a little hiccup in our hotel choice, things got resolved and we were about to have ourselves a wonderful weekend! We ate at a local restaurant and then spent the evening getting our glow bowl on!!


We had plans the next morning to grab a quick breakfast and hit the State Fair! I had never been to a state fair so I didn't know what to expect. This event was HUGE! I felt like we walked for miles and still didn't see everything. It definitely made me want to check out the Ohio State Fair sometime!





We pet the cutest animals!! Like this little guy...

...spent way too much money on rigged games...

...and spent a lot of time acting touristy!!



What state fair experience would be complete without the greasiest of greasy foods?! Caleb and Jared each bought a "Krispy Kreme Burger", while Erin and I opted for the cheese coma ribbon fries!

...then of course fried cookie dough and fried oreos!

Then on our way out we grabbed one final photo in front of the coolest sign we saw all weekend!

Once we were done running around and sweating our butts off, we went back to the hotel and cleaned up to hit Downtown and see a bit of the city! Unfortunately, it was the craziest/busiest weekend we could've chosen to go to Indy, but it was a blast because we were all together. The views of the monuments were gorgeous, and their mall is killer.


These friends of mine made me feel special all weekend long, and even let us fall asleep watching pitch perfect.... THOSE are the best kind of friends ;) when we woke up on my actual birthday we got breakfast and hit the road to head home.

Caleb gifted me with the prettiest watercolor print ever as well as a wireless speaker!! I'm so excited to have dance parties wherever I go now ;) we spent the rest of the day shopping with a few gift cards I got and my man took me to my favorite place in Cincy...

We went to the evening service at our church then came home to relax and watch a movie...but he surprised me with a DELISH milkshake to get me through the movie, first!

I feel like I have a lot to accomplish before my 25th next year and I'm determined to hit my goals! Caleb is so good to me and I couldn't be more thankful that he's in my life to make me laugh and to feel appreciated, especially on days like this one! Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday, it was honestly amazing!!
