Just Me Again

I'm pretty excited about the fact that Amanda of Growing Griswolds has me as her guest blogger today. She has a section on her blog where she has guests post their infertility stories. I read the two she has posted and felt like I really wanted to share mine. Even if you know me and our story there are still a few details on her blog that I haven't put on this one.  So go check her out.

I really enjoy finding bloggers that I have this in common with, but I typically don't fit in very well. I definitely do talk about infertility on my blog, but I think it's pretty limited. My approach to blogging is that I'm going to talk about the ish that I like, and I don't really like infertility.

You know what I do like? Riding my bike. Ohhh yeahhh.

Ingrid and I ran last night and it was glorious. After work I knew I wanted to do something but wasn't really feeling running two days in a row. And blisters, you know? So I decided to ride my bicycle (read that like Queen). I swear that when we first started running I always envied the people on bikes because I felt like they were getting where they were going faster and easier. Now I'm here to tell you that is just plain wrong. Riding a bike is hard. Super hard.

I left the house and rode north for nearly three miles and couldn't believe how easy it was. It was like piece of cake style. I was sweaty, but I wanted that. Then I turned around and headed south. At first I was like ooohh, this breeze feels so good, and then I was like nooooo it does NOT. Wind is hard, yo. The ride back home definitely slowed my time down, but I'm still proud of this time. I'm new to biking, so be kind.

I do realize that a lot of people run that fast. I don't care. And if you care, you better not be in my way when I'm on my bike, because we're coming through, yo.

In other news, Birchbox hates me. They gave me this horrible color. It's called Tweet Me by Color Club.
 Also, Kroger hates me and won't carry Essie, so I had to get this. I must admit, it is just as fab as Essie's Good To Go. And cheaper. Double points.
 I guess it doesn't look that bad. No. No. It's completely hideous. Thanks BBox. Yo.
