I'm XXX, Bitch!

DISCLAIMER: the B-word appears a couple times in this entry. And, since I know my mother-in-law reads my blog... D, please don't be offended, it goes with the theme.

Now back to the nitty gritty...


This weekend kicked off my entry into my thirties perfectly! Friday, Hwood and I played hookie from work and slept in. By early afternoon, the gorgeous weather called to us and he took me to Lebanon Hills for my first Leb ride. It was a ton of fun! But man was it hot - it felt like a friggin' sauna in the woods as the moisture in the dirt from the preceding days' rainfalls attempted to evaporate in the heat. After a couple of laps, Jay had to get to the shop to take care of biz and I headed home to clean up and take a nap.


We spent the evening at home relaxing and prepping for a Saturday afternoon bbq. It was a perfectly chill night to forget about work and stuff, and to prepare myself for a weekend of fun.

Saturday morning the sun woke me up and I was surprised to find a card waiting for me on the bathroom sink. When I picked it up, I found a sweet tank top my hubby had made that said "I'm XXX, Bitch!" in big fun letters. I giggled and ran back to bed to thank my sweet hubby. Only weeks before, I had said it would be fun to have a shirt that said that for my bday.... see, guys DO listen!!! :O) And a special thanks to Teri for the design work - you rock, Gurl!

We lolligagged around the house all morning and had a late breakfast before starting our day. Hwood took me out in my new tank top to the Apple store to go pick out a new computer for myself for my bday. I'd been saving and researching for the big purchase for months, and it was finally time. It was one of the funnest shopping experiences ever! I think we gave out 20 high-fives in the hour we were there! I've never had such great customer service in a store like that before, and I'd recommend them to anyone. 'Nuff said.

After that, we ran home to get the yard and grill ready for the party, only to find out the old rickety grill finally bit the dust. Lucky for us, the condo assoc. needed a new grill and were happy when we offered to go pick one out and bring it home! SCORE! So here we stood with new grill in hand - one hour to go before the bbq - but still no food! We busted out to the grocery store and liquor store and shopped in a feverish frenzy.... but we made it home with 20 min. to spare.
As the afternoon heat filled the air, friends and family started to roll in with smiles on their faces and the fun began. The weather was perfect and Hwood had the grill kickin out food for all. The best of all the food though was definitely the CAKE! While he was "at the shop working" the other night, he was actually at KK & Jodie's house making me an extra large Wiener Dog Cake from scratch! It was so cute and tasted even better! Yep, he truly is Husband of the Year...for the 2nd year straight.

We chilled in the back yard for hours, everyone having a taste of my wiener (cake), playing frisbee, and simply hanging out. When the evening approached and the clouds rolled in to
sprinkle on us we stayed outside - the warm nite felt great with a little bit of rain. But once the thunder got closer, we loaded up our drinks and snacks and headed indoors for a
bitchin' time of Guitar Hero! It was awesome! We kept it going until midnite when the crowd thinned out and we retreated to the couch to let the day's events sink it.


It was the perfect birthday! I had everything I wanted - my husband, my puppy, some time in the sun... perfect. Thank you my sweet, you're the best!


And what kind of summer weekend would it be without a bike race? Sunday morning came a little earlier than I wished, but we loaded up the car and headed to Mankato for the Mt. Kato Mtn bike race. Mankato has been nailed by rain and storms a ton in the last week or so, causing the course to be SLOP-PY!!!! Even with the temps in the upper 80's, the course couldn't dry out and it made for a muddy race. I had a bitchin' time - I love the mud! I even finished third!!!
Jay rocked a killer race too, taking 2nd in his age group and 11th in the Pro/Expert race. Way to go Babe!! Chucker rounded out the top 20 experts and G-reg kept the black and white looking good with a strong finish in Comp, too. Awesome job, boys!

I got a ragin' sunburn while feeding the guys during the race, so it was nice to retreat home after the long hard effort and hang out on the couch again with my sweet Jay and Smokey. As the sky darkened and the starts began to twinkle, I sat gleefully with my boys, full satiated after a wonderful birthday weekend.


Thanks Jay for always making my world a better place! I love you. And thank you to all my friends and family who stopped by to celebrate with us - it was so nice to have you there. Love you guys!


Remember, I'm not 30.... I'm XXX, Bitch!
