On Friday night, I went to a birthday dinner for my friend Dawn. Dawn & I met in Seventh Grade & were best friends & roommates until I moved to NYC & she moved to Japan in 2000. We eventually fell out of touch with each other, but became reunited last year & now live down the street from each other. Of course we do.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know about this new $10 Pulaski chair. While the cookies were baking, I re-worked the furniture in our living room. I took the orange chair out & put the $10 chair in. I'm worried the chevron chair & red ottoman don't go with the bar cart & $10 chair, but I don't have anywhere else to put them. And I like them.
The living room has become a catch-all for all of my favorite finds, but is that a bad thing? Also, this picture reminds me that I need to replace the Ikea rug & coffee table we bought 4 years ago as temporary pieces & never replaced. Oy.
While I was Donna Reed-ing it up at home, John went to Grimey's to celebrate Record Store Day. This has been a very good year for
. While the big project he's been working on all year isn't out yet, everything else is & was for sale on Saturday. He had a blast.
Yesterday was the first time in the 9 year history of Kim & John that we exercised together. Now that I have my own bike, John has his back, so we can ride together. We met our friends Katie & Rollum at Wave Country to ride to the Percy Priest dam & back. I padded up like I was going to ride the Tour de France, but John just went in his every day clothes, including the BLAZER he brought in case he needed it. Ya'll.
I didn't think to bring two bottles of water, so halfway through the ride, we stopped at Target for John to get something to drink. Naturally, he got a Coke. And yes, he put it in his water bottle cage & rode with it. But seriously, he did great. For someone who hasn't worked out, possible ever, he rode over 16 miles yesterday, IN JEANS. Respect.
Oh, & P.S. - my
is awesome! OMG, it's such a huge difference riding a road bike after riding John's 100 lb mountain bike all last year. And I can shift it! I love my bike!
