Anyway, back to this past weekend. We were out running errands and Mark and I decided to just go for it and get one. Now picture it...Saturday afternoon, beautiful day, pulling into the Harley Davidson lot, a gazillion bikers with their bikes EVERYWHERE!!! And here we come. Bunny and Biff to buy a bike! LOL We weren't planning to drive it home just yet, we were going to pick one out and then Mark was going to come back to sign all the paper work because we had to get home to pick up Jason and Molly from work. So we get out of the car...me in a bright pink golf skirt with white sleeveless polo golf top that has a pink and a green stripe on the collar and around the arms. yeah. And Mark, well, he's in plaid shorts and a polo! LOL!!! Yeah, we were Bunny and Biff. :O) So as we walk into the store, passing crazy biker men with their scary biker chicks we were a tad nervous. Luckily BJ the amazingly nice salesman sees us and says "HEY GUYS! ARE YOU BACK TO PICK OUT A BIKE?" so at that point we were no longer the super geeks - we have connections here people - Biker BJ likes us! We pick a bike...
Since that photo is so crappy, this is the bike we bought Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Later that evening, after Mark came home with the bike, we are out for a little drive.
Mark: Let's swing in your Mom and Dad's and show them the bike.
Me: ahhh, they'll probably say something stupid and piss us off. Are you sure you want to see them today?
Mark: Yeah, they'll like it.
We pull up at my parents Condo. I run up to see if they want to come out and see it.
Me: Hi Mom. Mark and I bought a motorcycle and we thought you might want to see it.
Mom: You bought a motorcycle? (it the - what are you some kind of idiot - voice that we all love so much)
Me: Yep. You don't have to come out and see it if you don't want to, we were just our riding around and thought we would swing by.
Mom: Is that why your dressed in that kind of outfit? (yet again in the voice)
This would be my crazy biker outfit...
Wild biker boots...
my Wild biker jean jacket (that I got from Macy's last year - because I'm sorry, but it was chilly on that bike going 55 mph!) with my Wild biker pin on it... and I was wearing my Wild biker plain green t-shirt. Then they come outside and say to Mark "what are you going to get tattoos now?" I just grinned at him like ... told ya so.
So this week I am making two little curtains to hang on the french doors in my sewing area. I bought two magnetic curtain rods and I'm going to whip up some little valances to go on them. I decided to make them kind of funky so I'm going to piece the background in black and white fabrics and then I'm going to applique bright flowers and leaves over it. And I'm thinking about maybe adding white pompom trim across the bottom. So we'll see how far I get. It's not going as planned yet. Mark called me this morning because he forgot his wallet so I had to take it to him (that killed an hour) then I had to run to the store, Kellie got home from school at 1:15 and Molly has PT today. It's been like that around here lately and with school finishing next Friday (6/12), things are a little nutty. So Happy Monday - We'll see how far I can get with these curtains.
