It’s My Birthday!

Happy Friday friends!  Today is particularly fabulous Friday because…IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!  I am officially 28 years old and smack dab in the middle of my late 20s.  I just know this is going to be my best year yet.  Even if I am one year closer to 30! BAH! So weird! 
Now since it is Friday I’m not going to break with tradition but I am going to make this a themed Oh Hey Friday!  So here are 5 things I’m most looking forward to about my 28th year of life! 🙂
[one] Living by myself for the first time EVER!!   I used this before but it’s still true.  I’ve never lived completely alone before and that is happening while I’m 28!  It’s a big deal.  I’ve gotten tastes of here and there in the last few months and I’m not sure how I feel about it anymore.  Stay tuned for more on the is subject in the coming weeks!
[two]  Visiting our nations capitol.  I will be visiting Washington DC in a few months.  As a history major/ US History teacher.  I feel this should have happened ages ago but I am so excited that it’s finally happening now.  I cannot wait too see the city where out nation is run from. 
[three] Maybe, possibly, hopefully meeting my person.  I know I know.  I shouldn’t wish for it because I’m gonna meet him when I least expect it if I stop looking.  But y’all I can’t help it.  I’m so ready to meet my person that I can’t stand it.  So please hope that it happens for me while 28.  I’m not getting any younger! 🙂
[four] Reading 100 or more books.  I’ve become more obsessed with reading than I already am lately so I’m looking forward to surpassing my 2016 goal of 50 books.  I want to read 100 or more while I’m 28.  

[five] Creating and completing a 28 in 28 challenge for myself.  Ive seen these floating around and I think it’s finally time for me to make one.  So I’m currently creating a 28 things I want to do in my 28th year.  And I’ll be sharing that next week on the blog!

HERE’S TO 28!!!! 
I just love these birthday pictures!  Ashley from The Wandering Weekenders and I took them on our mural day a few weekends ago.  THANK YOU Ashley for agreeing to take part in these fun pictures and for snapping these for me! 🙂  
Have a great Friday friends!  It’s my birthday so I know I will! 🙂

  1. 28 was my favorite age of them all. I felt like I was old enough that I knew who I was, and was happy with myself. But I wasn't in my 30s yet (which aren't bad, but still). And I met my husband when I was 28. I hope you find your person this year, too! :)Happy birthday!!!


  2. Woohooo!! Happy Happy Happy Birthday, Kathleen! Hope it's an awesome year for you! Can't wait to hear what you think about living alone! I've never done it – I've always had a roommate (growing up and college) or an apartment – mate (grad school and post grad). I can see a lot of pros and cons to it, and I'm excited to hear about it! Umm, I'm completely obsessed with reading right now. It's like I caught a virus. You read 50 books last year? CRAZY. I need to find you on goodreads! XO Kelsey


  3. Happy happy birthday girl!! I hope this is the best year yet for you girl! I know it's so beyond cliche about meeting \”your person\” when you least expect it, but it's so true. I can't wait to read your 28 in 28 list :)!! Also how exciting about D.C., I went eons ago, but definitely want to make my way back there and visit all the fun spots again!


  4. Happy birthday!!!! It's like they knew that it was your birthday and made sure that you didn't have to work today! I love the idea of making a 28 in 28 list! It would be so much fun to get yourself motivated to do more things. And reading 100 books in a year is a huge task, but one that you can definitely do! Plus that means that I'll get a lot more recs! I hope you have the best time celebrating today and this weekend!


  5. Happy Birthday! I jealous you get to live solo I never got that chance I think it would be fun to have everything my way. There's no way I could read 100 books, I gave myself two and a half years to read 100 and I'm not sure it's going to happen. And Trav was 28 when we met, so it's a lucky age for love :). Excited to read your 28 list!


  6. Happy Birthday!!! These pictures are awesome. I'm at the point where I can no longer live with a roommate in my life, so living alone sounds great. Looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it. I hope you have fun in DC! As a history person sounds like you probably have a Philly trip in order as well. Also, 100 books just sounds crazy to me. Good luck making your list!


  7. I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend!! Looks like you're having some nice spring weather (I'm jealous!!) Try not to overthink your plans for the year, especially about \”your person\”. It will happen!!!!! Let me know if you want any recommendations for DC, you'll have a blast. xoxo!
