It’s been a good day…

Today I went out to lunch with my mom and grandma (we went to Olga’s–yum!), got groceries and hung out doing laundry at my mom’s (and ate some of the amazing chocolate chip cookies she made!), leafed through a Taste of Home magazine my mom is lending me with way too many delicious looking recipes to try, and bought a new bike!



I am really excited to have a bike to get around town with, and already rode about ten miles on it today alone! I was especially happy about the color. Chad suggested I get a brighter, bolder color, but the maroon color of this bike was the same as the first bike I ever had when I was in Japan. I feel so lucky to live in an area in which I can bike to the grocery store, the library, and the beach–the latter two of which I biked to today with Chad!



When we stopped by the library, I dropped off two books and got them marked off on my Book Bingo card. I primarily started the bingo because if I finish it I have a chance at winning a gift certificate to Grimaldi’s Chocolates in Grand Haven, and we all know how obsessed I am with chocolate! Additionally, the Book Bingo sort of goes in line with another of my Summer Bucket List points: join a book club. I know it’s a little different, but it’s a step in the right direction!

So far for the bingo I’ve read Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, Seriously, I’m KiddingYoga Bitchand Other People We MarriedI really enjoyed Yoga Bitch. Do you have a suggestion for a good mystery? I usually don’t like mysteries very much, so I am totally up for suggestions. As for now, I’m starting one of the “groundbreaking” reads about archaeological adventures, and putting a close to a very nice day.

What are some good things that happened to you today?


P.S. I have been enjoying playing around with the BeautifulMess app, which I used to decorate my pretty bicycle picture above! Have you tried it out yet?

  1. i’m so glad you got that app! i knew you’d like it. i can’t believe you bought a new bike. why didn’t you just fix the one aaron broke? and i’m totes jellie that you get to ride your bike all over town. that would take me forever to get to town if i wanted to ride my bike to the library or the store. and i will form a book club with you. what do you want read for our first book? let’s do this!

    1. Yes! I hadn’t read any blogs for the longest time because we’d been so busy, but when you mentioned the app I had to check it out 🙂 There are a lot of other free photo decorating apps that I like, too, so it would be nice if the entire app was free after you bought it (you have to pay for some of the decorations, fonts, etc. even after buying it!).

      I didn’t fix the one Aaron broke because I think he should pay to fix it since he used it and left it out (and apparently my lock disappeared as well!). But he won’t do that because he doesn’t think it’s his responsibility. I think he said he’d give me $20 maybe? Plus the bike I bought is the style I prefer for the road and it’s super cute to boot 😉

      Part of why we want to live in this area of Grand Haven is because it’s so easy to get around by bicycle 😉 We actually might try riding out to your place tomorrow!!

      As for the book club–sounds good! I have a few books I have checked out already, but if you want to suggest one I can squeeze it in between. Perhaps a mystery? haha
