Song of the Day

The Booty Beats remix came on the radio before I got to work.

I wanna be a P.Y.T.

It's for reals now!

So Curtis and I decided to move the wedding up. A lot. No, no, no, I'm not preggers. Just wanted to get our wedded life started as soon as possible and before we live together. Curtis is so old fashioned about certain stuff and it is beyond sweet. While I am so excited that we will be married before any major holidays, I have started to officially freak out. The past week has been filled with me freaking out and crying a lot over stupid stuff. I just don't think I have ever been this stressed before. But then I find stuff that makes me smile.

Commuting Sucks It

But my carpooling buddy makes it all better. :)

Who would have thought...

...that I would like the edited for TV version of Snakes on a Plane better than the original?  Genius...

Easter Domo

I woke up to the little guy in my arm on Easter. He decided to pose with my Mamacita mug. Not pictured, my most amazing fiance and his matching Papacita mug. He pretty much gives the best gifts ever.

How amazing are these?!

The wonderful Miss Melodia (her blog is amazing and you must check it out) pointed these plates out to me. They are definitely going on our registry. Go check them out and more here.

Two Wheels

Old picture, same attitude. Yesterday was my first big road ride of the year. And much to my surprise, I did way better than I thought I would. The weekend was full of rain and slush, but miraculously, it all melted off on Sunday and it was in the 60's.
As Cody Chestnutt would say, I look good in leather. But spandex does nothing for me. This only adds to road riding's intimidating power over me. Anyone who knows me will tell you that if I'm not good at something, I will insist on doing it and pout the entire time.So the first few miles of the ride consisted of Curtis taking the lead and asking me ever so nicely how I was doing. I would grumpily say "I'm fine" and cough for the next 5 minutes. But after those first few miles, I became more relaxed and comfortable on my bike and enjoyed myself and the view. I live right by the foothills and it was absolutely gorgeous. Later we rode downtown and scoped out a potential wedding site. Overall a terrific Sunday.
For those riders out there, click here for an article that really helped me with the way I approached any sort of incline.
And is a site I have started to use to track my workouts. Doesn't just have to be biking either. It's just a cool way to keep track of what you do.

Beer Bike

Behold Amstel Light's beer bike. It's pretty much a mobile bar with a working tap when stopped. To get this puppy rolling, the 8-10 people on the bike have to peddle together. Thank God there is a guy on the front steering because I really don't trust a bunch of drunk/high Dutch to look where they are going. But this is an amazing idea and I want a ride! And a beer.
