Birthday Edition of Five Things Friday

Yes, you read that correct! Today is my birthday! I have officially reached the final year of my 20s! I told hubs I can't wait to get out of this age group!

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that I've done on my birthday in years past! Some are quite random, but all are memorable! Since its a free week in the linkup with Cynthia, Mar and Courtney - lets do it!

1. I finished graduate school on my 23rd birthday. It was the greatest feeling in the world to be done with not only a challenging program, but that chapter in my life. Oh it was the best birthday gift ever. 

2. Two years ago hubs and I were walking around Consol Energy Center and down the escalator was this HUGE man. WWE was in town that night and I thought it was a wrestler. Turns out it was one of my favorites, Cesaro! He wished me a happy birthday and even took a picture with me!

I'm 5-4, he's tall.

3. I love going to the zoo. I just love looking at the animals. Hubs surprised me a few years ago by taking me to the Cleveland Zoo! To our surprise, you could feed the giraffes (which are my favorite animal)! Before I could turn to Joe, he had money out for me and I ran in line! 

4. In 2012 I ran a 5k on my birthday and finally broke 25 minutes. I also placed second overall female which is still my best finish in a race!

5. I spent my 18th birthday in Europe. I woke up in London, after spending the day before at Wimbledon, and fell asleep in Paris. The entire trip was an incredible experience and I made so many new friends. 

Thank you all for all the birthday wishes already! Today is our last day of vacation and we have a wedding tomorrow so if I'm late to respond I'm sorry! I hope you all have a wonderful day, I know I will!
