Five Things Friday 5.9.2014

Happy Friday!

This is a BIG weekend in the Rochford household…Brian graduates from dental school!

That means tonight, we will spend the evening cleaning our apartment, baking up some treats and decorating for the graduation party tomorrow.  That also means tomorrow Brian will be DR. Rochford!  Crazy.

I am so proud of Brian and I can’t believe how fast this past four years has gone.

On that note…Here is a little Five Things Friday.

Five Things Making Me Happy:

Last night, Brian and I got together with a bunch of his dental school friends and rode around Indianapolis for 2 hours while enjoying a few adult beverages and having a great time.  It was so fun, it literally felt like we were on vacation!

  • Les Mills GRIT

We had a demo of this workout done at the gym I work at, and MAN was the workout great!  I had done this class once before, but honestly I forgot how much I loved it.  I don’t think I have sweat that much in a long time.

  • Warm sunny weather!! Literally, the past two days have felt like summer 🙂  I LOVE it!
  • Indianapolis Bikeshare

Brian and I have literally been riding these bikes around town for everything, and it is so fun.  I have taken it to work 4 mornings this week, and Brian and I take them just about anywhere we go.  Great job, Indy!! We love the bikes!
