I'm Still Here :)

Just a busy, busy bee, like always.

So, what's new? I dyed parts of my hair pink, and I feel very hip and cool now. Yeah.

Oh, and we are getting mountain bikes! Yep. I used to ride my bike ALL the time, even as a teenager. I miss it so, so much! So I decided, we should all get bikes and start going to different bike trails and parks. A great and cheap way to spend some quality time together, as a family.

I miss having a bike. The feeling of freedom, the wind in my hair, zooming down a big hill...

Maya already has a bike, but she needs a new one, too. Hers is a little too small and plus, it's a BARBIE bike. She does not want to be seen DEAD riding a BARBIE bike. After all, she is a fantastically COOL and grown up 8 year old now. Not a baby.

I even went out a bought a book called "Pennsylvania's Bike Trails" hee hee. I'm super excited.

Oh, and I finally found a Trader Joe's near us! I am SO going to start shopping there. I'm trying to be more healthy and what not. I've been wanting to go to a Trader Joe's forever. Their prices are so much better than the organic section at Giant Eagle!

I've been away from my blog for so long and I see I have a ton of comments to catch up and a bunch o new blogs to check out! Yay!

I love bikes.

Maybe I should dye my hair something more interesting and brown. I'm starting to feel not quite so hip and cool now that I'm nearly the big 3-0.

Trader Joes is a great place to shop. Thanks so much for stopping in at Babasfarmlife and commenting. I'm really glad we found the stone too.

Some days, I think I've logged more miles on a bike than in a car. In any case, two-wheeled transport has been infinitely more important to me than the four-wheeled variety ever was. I feel so free when I pedal off.

I can't wait for the snow to melt (again) so that I can get back on the road. I got quite a few good rides in last week before winter returned with a vengeance. Happy riding!

Ann On and On...

Bikes are one of the best things about Spring/Summer. Enjoy your new bikes (when you get them)....

Great to have a new SITSer, welcome! I'm having a giveaway for a monogram bag...come on over!

I'd love to dye my hair—but I'm bald. Worst, the few hair that I have left is turning gray.

Hmp.

I had pink streaks put in my hair last October or so. I LOVED it. I bet it looks great on you with your red hair. Now I'm wanting some purple streaks since the pink once washed out eventually.

Biking is so much fun. ENJOY the new bikes when you get them!

Blog Birthday Bashes are always fun.

I miss my bike too. I used to ride it all over creation when I was younger.

When we lived in PA we loved to go to Valley Forge and watch the deer :)
