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.
