One month as a Mrs.

Saturday will mark ONE MONTH since I became
Mrs. Gardner... 
Where does the time go? All that planning for over a year.. now I have all this time.. OR so I thought I would have a lot of free time! 

I thought today would be PERFECT to catch you up on my life since that perfect day.. 

*The week after the wedding I was running around crazy still. My mom was in town for the entire week and we visited Bates Nut Farm 

*I helped a dear friend celebrate her son's 5th Birthday while I was there she told me she is expecting her 4th child next June. :) CONGRATS!!!! 

*We had to say See ya later to a good friend who actually leaves for boot camp in less than 2 weeks. I won't be seeing him for at least a year. :( Makes me sad because he is like my brother. He's always been there for me NO MATTER what. I know deep down though this decision is good for him. He wants this more than anything. 

Now to the good stuff.. Last Saturday I did the color run. If you follow me on instagram you saw some pictures. 
Words of advice: if there is a color run near you.. DO IT!! I promise you, you won't regret it!!! 

I will let the pictures talk. 

The morning of. She was NOT a fan of taking pictures. 

It was a chilly morning 

Our Photographer Jesse thought it was necessary to take these pictures

After the race...

The gang for the color run!! 

See how much fun it is?
You NEED to do this? 
It is the BEST run ever.. & to make things even better it was my FIRST ever run!! I loved it. I can't wait for next year.  

So as you can tell the last month as Mrs. Gardner has been crazy but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am so excited to see what the next year has in store for us! 

Happy Thursday!
