and and aaaand I get to see two of my favorite people tomorrow! Sarah (impeccable hippie style, impending wedding, fellow curvy girl) and Katherine (founder of Gathered Heart, whose wedding i still measure all other weddings by, wearer of many cardigans)! We originally planned on ya know being generally awesome and creative but really all our trip boils down to tomorrow is food. El Burrito Loco - i'm getting a GIANT horchata, Jaenicke's - you can't find it any other place than Bourbonnais and it'll make you slap yo momma, Main Dynasty - one word? rangoons. OH and Starbucks. I mean naturally. What's better that? Well if we all lived next to each other... there's that.
|when we get together things like this happen... perfection.|
After the appropriate amount of puppy petting and 'aww'ing we ended up going inside GoodSpeed just to browse the bikes. I'm a fan of bikes and I've had my eye on an Electra Townie for a long time. Recently I've changed my love to an Electra Ticino because I want to eventually use my bike for adventures of the city kind. I showed my mom the Townie and she was kind of nonplussed... then pointed out another bike that was bright turquoise and cream by Trek and... I fell in love! I did! I mean I know it's a bike and the dude working there totally made fun of me but... um... things I don't care about! so... i am kinda half broke but I put money down on this little beauty! (We never did get pedicures.)
I have also listened to the entire discography of Ingrid Michaelson in the time I wrote this post (I tend to wander to other pages while I'm writing) and it inspired me to do some new type designs. We'll see how they work out. Should be interesting though! Yay portfolio building!
Have a good weekend, wherever you are - work, home, biking, sleeping, tanning (WHY?!) or eating copious amounts of cake batter ice cream from Coldstone.
p.s. - never underestimate the persuasive powers of Coldstone's cake batter ice cream. It'll seduce you... love you and leave you without a second thought, but you keep going back for MORE.
