I have to say... I have a lot of fun. My weekend was no exception. Saturday we did a HARD 104 mile bike ride. Did I mention it was hard? Wowzers - it was hot, a little windy, bumpy roads that shook your brains a little, not much water, etc.! It was an organized ride by a company called Columbus Outdoor Pursuits. You sign up in the morning, they give you a map with different distance options, mark the roads with little arrows and send you on your way. It was definitely a true test of my mental ability because I thought that I might die at one point - wasn't feeling it. But obviously I lived to tell.
From there we went to Wendy's where I enjoyed a monster nugget and fries (a true recovery meal of a champ).
That night we headed to some friends for an annual party that they throw. This was our first year going. I have to say, it's going to have to make our calendars every summer. So the people that were there are mainly girls from a chat board that I'm on and their hubbies. They are an awesome group of women and I'm so glad that I can call them friends! You girls are so fun! Here we are at the beginning of the night (yeah, I have REALLY bad tri top tan lines):
And here's me by the end. No, I had surprisingly not been drinking. The one who got me to actually do this had been though and told me it didn't hurt. Last time I believe a girl who's been drinking!
Sunday was a little bit of a recovery day for both of us - Tom had drank for two on Saturday night and I was pooped from the ride. We just hung out and I started my latest and greatest project - knocking off a Vera Bradley purse. I am so excited with how it turned out! And SO much cheaper than buying the real thing (which I was going to do the week before but couldn't stomach spending $67 on a tote that I knew I could make for $30). Here's the final product:
And just for kicks, here's a picture of my babies. They are the love of my life.
Have a great week everyone. Tom's heading to DC with Team Type 1, I'm heading to PA to visit some family, Tom's meeting me there, etc. It'll be busy!
