~He's Done It Again~

I know a lot of you probably don't like surprise.

Well, let me let you in on a little secret about me...
I'M NOT THAT GIRL!!!
I just love surprises....big surprises, little surprises, fat surprises, skinny surprises, tall surprises, short surprises.
Really, I'm not picky.
I have always loved them.
I didn't get too many as a little girl but Bill seems to be making up for lost time.

Bill loves to give surprises as much as love receiving them.
YEAH FOR BILL!

This is the little surprise he come home with the other day....





It an attachment for my bike.

It also comes with the detachable market tote!

Just look at that bow. DARLING!!!


You see fellow bloggers....Bradley is going to all day camp this summer.
I am committing to ride my bike more.
I have a farmers market every Wednesday about a a mile from my house.
I can already smell all that fresh produce!
On Saturday's there is a French Market about 3 miles from my house.
Target is about 1 -2 miles from my house.

This will also help me spend less money!
I don't have the back of my car to pile stuff in.
Whatever fits in my tote goes home with me.
(I feel confident that I will maximize it's capacity)

I heart my new bike "basket."

Now, if this rain would just stop maybe I could try it out....
Oh wait...I can't....Bill brought my bike in for my annual tune up.
I guess I will just have to wait....
Also, as I type this new post it is raining reallllllly hard.
I will just have to imagine.....

~Happy New Beginning to Another New Week~

I LOVE Surprises too! Such a thoughtful surprise!! What a great husband! I hope it tapers off soon so you can try it out! We have a Target less than a mile away but I kid you not it is uphill both ways...how on earth will I make it? :)
I love the farmers market, I wish I had a French one close, I bet that is amazing!!!
It just started snowing here...
Have a great day!

how simply darling! I am so covetous - of course of the sweet bike basket - but that you live 1mile from all those fabulous places! I will pray for warmer weather in Chi-town! Best- Tracy.

aw, what a sweet hubby you have! I to LOVE suprises! That sounds like a great idea riding your bike to all those places. Save money on gas, and stuff cause it wont fit in the bag and your getting your excercise!
