I met my friend Lana on Saturday morning for a bike ride. Because I'm new to riding, I don't have cycling clothes yet, & in fact, am still riding in a borrowed pair of tri shorts. It was 46 degrees outside on Saturday morning. I covered up & layered as much as I could, but I still rode 14 miles in 46 degrees in shorts. I warmed up a little at Barista, but it was short-lived.
Back at home, & still freezing, I jumped into bed to warm up. I was playing on my iPad when John came stomping upstairs with a box that looked like it had been to hell & back. It was my purse! This purse, nay satchel, is the most stressful, frustrating purchase I've ever made, but it's here, it's beautiful & I love it.
On Saturday night, we went to dinner with Katie, Dave & Alexis, & Keith & Nicole. We tried for Lockeland Table, but didn't get in & went to Eastland Cafe instead. And you all know the best part of eating at Eastland Cafe - going across the street to Jeni's afterwards for dessert! Pumpkin 5-Spice, you complete me.
Yesterday John helped me snazz up our front porch a little. I usually plant a bunch of mums & put them on our front stairs, but last year they all blew over & my pots broke. So this year, I just planted a bunch in one big planter up by the front door. Take that, wind!
I bought this mirror months ago at the Goodwill in Lawrenceburg for $10. My friend Jaime has the exact same mirror, but she paid $80. Score! It's super heavy, but John rigged up the back with some heavy duty wire & hung it for me. You can't see the bar cart, but it's in the same room & they really go well together. I need to style that table, but I like it!
Rounding out the 2012 Jaime & Kim Concert Series, we went to see The Shins last night at Ryman Auditorium. To avoid getting held hostage again, they held a Hatch print for me. I love it!
