My Shiny New Toy


So check out what I got yesterday... a pretty new bike!!! {Pause while I do a happy dance.} I'm so excited! I don't think I've ever had my very own bike, so it's a bit of a personal accomplishment for me. And look how sweet it is! :) It's an old-school Shwinn Cruiser. It fits me perfectly (which makes me less terrified of riding... seriously, I screamed like a little girl when I attempted to ride Derek's). And I got it for fifty bucks! I know. I'm a little jealous of me, too.

Disregard the awful sun-in-face shot and admire me and all my pimped-out-red-bike glory. Oh, and I got a haircut today. Gotta clean up for Derek's ten-year reunion this weekend (scary). Now I should get going... need to paint my toenails. And wax my back. (Ick!)

Just kidding on that last part... Or am I?

What the crap! I am so jealous of you and Ashley now. I want a cool bike! All I have is my old 12 -speed that I got when I was 14. Oh well. We should go on a ride sometime.
Thanks for commenting on my post. I'm glad you like to be non-sweaty like me. It makes me feel better. Hooray that you had chickens when you were little and hooray that you know what bokeh means. Love you much!

haha! I can vouch for hearing the terrified screams as you plummeted into an innocent curb. Poor thing never saw you coming. Kidding. It wasn't that bad. But your ride is pretty awesome. You make it look good!

Good luck with the back waxing. I hope it's more enjoyable than the bikini wax.

So I'm a super lame friend and haven't checked your blog in a long time so tonight I spent a good half an hour just reading up on what your little family has been up to lately! I can't believe how gorgeous Jolie is... holy moly! And I love all the pictures of James- when did our kids grow up anyway? AND I just need to say that you are freakin' skinny and incredibly beautiful! Seriously girl- you look great!

I'll try to do better now and keeping up with ya :)
