Cool Mountain Bike

I was browsing blog links earlier today, you can really get lost, and came across a blog by bikesnobnyc. Intriguing name. This put me in mind of a recent purchase by my DH. About a month ago the weather starting getting warmer and I thought it would be great if we had bikes so that we could take Buggy riding on the nearby bike trail. I know I can keep up with her, she still has training wheels! This required the purchase of one bicycle for my husband. He cruised the internet and found one that could be delivered right to our neighborhood store. Well my idea was walk in to the nearest Wal-Mart and buy one off the floor, head for the bike trail along with a box of snacks and a bottle of water. Off we went to the store with two bikes loaded and ready. Browsed the bike section (lots of bikes all put together) for 45 minutes. I met my husband at the end of the row and asked if he had chosen one, which he had not. Says I, "there's a red one over there, wheels, peddles, kick stand, looks perfect". DH "Well, mmhhmmm, I think I want the mountain bike I saw online". Incredulous I said "it's a bike, it has wheels, are you suddenly planning on biking in the mountains?" He said he would go look again. He came back to the end of the row empty handed. He was standing firm on the cool, mountain bike (The word cool is my addition). We went home and unloaded the bikes.
A week later the 'cool, mountain bike' arrived. It too is red (Major eye rolling). Well, that weekend it rained. Fast forward to this past weekend. Buggy and I are ready with snacks and water. DH is in the garage preparing the bikes. I was in the house tying my shoes when I heard an explosion coming from the garage!! Sounded like a gunshot! I ran and threw open the door. There was my husband standing next to his 'cool, mountain bike' looking up at me. "What was that" I squealed. "I was putting a little air in my tires and the inner tube blew out" I closed the door without a single word. I did have to take a nap later due to weakness from laughing! Going on a month now since I had that nice idea about a family bike outing. Maybe we should try bowling instead.


Monsters vs. Aliens

Buggy and I, along with my husband, went to see the new movie, Monsters vs. Aliens last night. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much except for the Bug to have a great time . The child is suddenly thrilled with 3D movies, yes, you have to wear the glasses, fashionable as they are at least the theater is dark! On the plus side you get popcorn AND raisinets! Well, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! The movie was good, the 3D effects were great and we all had fun. Good, family fun!

Have you seen any good movies lately? Share your thoughts on it.


Tea Party

Happy day after Tax Day! Did you attend a 'Tea Party' yesterday?


Retro Easter Dress

Finally finished the Bug's Easter dress! It's tres chic, n'est pas? It has a set of matching brown shorts to go underneath but I didn't have the energy left to take another picture.



Egg time again!

This past weekend we painted our eggs getting ready for the Easter Bunny. I tried a new type of dye that made golden eggs .... well at least metallic eggs. We also used PAAS Color Snaps.

Buggy had fun with both - I'm sure she could have painted at least 4 more dozen eggs on her own.

But this was just the beginning ... we also made some adorable Easter Cookies.

I found some cute duck, rabbit, and tulip cutters at Michael's. Buggy heard us call the flowers "tulips" and she knew they were flowers but got all confused and called them Tunias!
We used basic sugar cookie dough and iced them up. I found that the secret to smooth icing is corn syrup! Worked great. The finishing touch was polka-dot candies on top! Martha would be proud. But, I still have an omg cute easter dress to finish for the Bug .... no sleep for the crafty!
