Weekend So Far

Yesterday afternoon Marty and I went to the Mellow Mushroom (yummy pizza place). Yes, I said yesterday afternoon because we were there just after 5pm! Early bird specials for us. The good thing is that place gets crazy crowded but not at that time - and we were seated as a nasty storm hit, so yeah, good timing.

Then I got a cupcake at The Cupcake Shoppe.

This morning we met Alysia and Kari for an open water swim at a cove at Jordan Lake. I hadn't been to that cove before even though a lot of people swim there - it was great! Marty brought his surfboard and paddled around while the three of us swam. This was nice because we had someone watching out for us and we could also sight on him ahead of us instead of "that one tree right in front of the other 1,000 around it?"

After our open water swim, or group got a little bigger with the addition of Jerry (aka, Jer-Bear) for a few hours (+/- depending on who you were) on our bikes. We had a nice ride that was complete with a couple of loose dogs, a fight with a bug, and see-through shorts. The see-through shorts were mine, which of course I didn't know about and now I'm trying to remember if I wore them in other recent times and how many people in the area have seen my butt cheeks. Woops. The fight was between a massive bug and Kari - it caused her to fall over on her brand new bike, luckily in the grass. It flew straight down her shirt and tried to put some bug moves on her. She is a married women and was none too pleased.

The 3 chicas at a quick store stop:

Tomorrow we're putting on an open water swim clinic and have a bunch of people signed up. Looking forward to it!

injury assessment from BUG ATTACK - one bruised thigh, one scraped shin and one live long fear of large bugs that next in my shirt!

The Cupcake Shoppe! Where do I sign up! Looks like you had a nice ride. I tend to eat on average two bugs per ride. Some days are worse and it's like 4- yucky! You chicks look sharp in those jerseys! Keep it up!

Kari was trying to tell me about this bug incident and then she said, "JUST go and read Bri's blog!" haha....I think the see-thru shorts are worse. GLAD you guys are ok and had fun! :)
I was just telling Kari that I thought you were a good influence on her locally, but um, not after your last support post of McDonald's. HAHA ick.
