Happy girls are the prettiest girls

I have my own bike!

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I normally don't post during what is usually a very busy time for me, but I had to show you my new bike, or as I will be affectionately referring to it from now on, my cupcake. Cupcake, you ask? Well, yes, of course! As soon as I test rode this bike, I fell madly in love with it, not unlike the feelings I get when I bite into a particularly scrumptious cupcake. {I can't be the only one!}
One of my favorite things to do in life is bake cupcakes, but when I rode this sweet little thing, I knew it was going to be making my list of favorite things to do, and "cupcake" sprang to mind immediately. 

Totally random, but in my search for an "I love cupcakes" photo, I found this shirt...I think I must have it.

Now, on to bikes! Cupcake is the Cannondale CAAD10 5 femme, one of the 3 bikes I posted about on Friday. It wasn't even on my radar until Matt suggested I test ride it, as the sale price for the Mike's Bikes Mega Sale this weekend offered a LOT of bike, for a low price. He nailed the bike recommendation hands down. Do you want to see pictures? Because I took some :)
 I was so excited I tried to take a picture in the car on the way home.

 Once home, I tried for another photo of the cupcake and I ;)

 Billy drives a Honda Element, and it's fantastic for my active lifestyle. Look how well a bike fits inside!

Ignore the messy tailgate, that's me being lazy. Check out my cupcake in it's loveliness! I can't wait to ride!

Next week I am going to try to check out the free bike maintenance class Mike's bikes offers every Wednesday night. I will need to know how to get out of a jam if I am out on the road by myself. I am both intrigued and frightened by bike maintenance. We shall see how it goes.

Have a great rest of your Saturday, and a nice Sunday as well!
