My new bike!


I feel like a little kid. I got a new bike today and I could hardly wait to get home to ride it.

I practically lived on my bike in the summers until I was in college, but I haven't had a bike for years. I've been looking at them all summer, but those that I liked were all pretty pricey. The price on this one was reasonable, and best of all it's PINK!

It's funny, I've never been much of a girly-girl, but I've always loved pink. I saw this bike and it was love at first sight. As I wheeled it through Target people were smiling at me, probably because I was grinning like crazy. A girl came up to me after I paid for it and told me that it was cool. (And that her mom paid $324 for her pink bike.)

Colin had to come to Target and pick up the bike, because he had a van today and I had the car, and he was smiling at me as he drove up, too. I think pink bikes make people happy.

So, when I got home I hopped on and took it around a couple of culs-de-sac. I was a bit wobbly at first, but I got the hang of it back pretty quickly. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time together over the next couple of months.

Maybe I'll bring my RED bike the next time I come visit and we can ride together. What fun!

Mine is bright purple. I dare you to ride around with me in the church parking lot.

Mine is the same shape as yours but it's electric blue and it needs some repair work. But it's a Schwinn and it has a basket. And a bell. Woo-hoo!

I smell a Mom-on-Bikes parade....

I love my bike, even though mine's red, which is not my favorite color. Wish it was not so hot and humid outside here right now so I could enjoy riding it!
