One of my favorite things to do on Sunday mornings lately is to get up SUPER (before 7AM) early to go ride one of the local bike trails with my parents and husband. Today was ride number three and it was somewhere over 27 miles. Afterwards, we went to Le Chatelaine for brunch where I enjoyed an omelette filled with locally grown corn, squash, and zucchini. It was SO good after that long trek! The hubs went all out, ordering eggs, bacon, potatoes, french toast, and a fruit tart. I've never seen him eat so much!

My ride is the Electra Townie Original 7D that I sold my soul bought from roll:. I know absolutely nothing about bikes, but it's cute, comfortable, and most importantly - ORANGE. I think my husband was bummed because his didn't come in our favorite color, so he settled for basic black with orange rims. These bikes are awesome, but not suited for the long rides that we've been doing with the parents. Supposedly they're only comfortable for 15-20 miles...and that seems about right to us. Often I find myself wondering if I should have gotten a hardcore bike, but I love this thing. I'm looking forward to attaching a basket to it so that I can ride to the library or Kroger. Unfortunately, we don't live within a safe riding distance of any "cool" places.

Usually after a long ride I'm basically useless for the rest of the day, so I haven't done too much. I did run out to Target to see if a pair of jeans I'd been eyeing were part of their denim sale (they were!) so I scooped them up for only $17 (had a Target coupon!). They look better in person than on the web. They're my first pair of "skinny" jeans! I would have preferred the darker wash, but for some reason they thought they needed to take the distressed look to the max with spots that would quickly become holes. :(

I also scored these cute wedges that have been around since they rolled out their spring items. These came in black, lavender (shown), and camel. I scored a camel pair that had been marked down to $ I had another Target coupon for shoes that made them even cheaper! I had to buy them!

Since then, I've been half-watching some awful movie on SyFy (btw, that name change is SO dumb) because for some reason I couldn't take a nap like everyone else is doing.

So what did I do? I woke up one of the kitties! Ben then proceeded to come lay on me, yawn, and breathe cat-food breath all over me. Yum!
