You’ll Look Sweet Upon the Seat


I tend to be a bit… antsy… when it comes to weekends. I crave spontaneity, adventure, and anything out of the mundane. The whole week I’m stuffed into a scheduled that I have little control over (thanks grown-up job!) and it starts to really wear on me come Friday. Bradford is aware of this about me and decided to take it upon himself to plan a little something out of the routine for us to do on Saturday.

We went to his Parents’ house, borrowed two of their bicycles, strapped them on top of my car (using the bike racks Bradford bought about year ago and we hadn’t used until now…), then we drove out to Utah Lake and rode around for an hour or so. It was super hot, and we were very thirsty the entire time, but it was a nice ride all the same.

It had been about 10 years since I’d been on a bike and I must say, the cliché, “like riding a bike,” isn’t a bunch of malarkey. Also, bicycle seats hurt your bum if you aren’t used to them (mine is still sore). 

It was fun and something we’ve never done together and something I’d like to do again soon. I’m glad Bradford thought of it. He’s a pretty good egg.

Later that night we went to see “Battleship” at the theater. It was surprisingly not terrible. Even enjoyable. Bradford actually said he wants to see it again (which is a big deal, he usually hates seeing the same movie within a five year window…).

All in all, it was a good weekend and I look forward to many many many more. Hopefully all of them. (Is it Friday yet?)

See? It was hot. I turn red when I get hot.

I looked at Rotten Tomatoes for reviews of Battleship. Everyone HATED it. I say to them, lighten up.

You are not red! Once Ethan and I did a bike ride from Provo to Utah Lake and we were eaten alive by mosquitos and we had to call to get a ride home from one of my roommates. It's good to get out and do something different, though! And it's great to take advantage of the weekends.
