Spu-Ring!!! (Spring)

Dear Blog,

I love me some spring and thankfully it came last Thursday! I've been rockin' and rollin' my Vespa to work everyday and I gotta say, I think I'm in love. It adds about 5 minutes to my getting ready for work routine but it's totally worth it. I'm still bringing people joy and at least once a day someone in their car beside me rolls down their window and asks me as many questions as time allows about the Vespa. In my mind, as soon as the light turns green they're driving on over to Vespa of Charlotte to buy one and I've done my duty to help save the earth.

Alas, there is ONE thing missing from the Vespa. A cup holder. Y'all know I'm addicted to my coffee and I've been strug-a-lug without my 3 cups o' joe in the a.m. But, Aaron fixed that. He fashioned me a cup holder! He's so smart and talented and blah blah blah. (Picture to come soon.) I tested it out this morning and it firmly keeps my cup in place and THAT gave me joy. Take a look;

So, this past weekend was Easter and I think Easter is a great holiday. I do think it is one of the most holy holidays and I like that the fan fare around it is less intense than Christmas and of course, I love the insane focus on candy! I think this might have been the first Easter I wasn't with my family, instead I was with my best good friend Leigh's family and helped support cute little Miles get baptized. He sure is a cute little sucker and every time I'm around him my heart of stone turns to mush and I see a glimpse of hope that I too, might be a good parent. Aaron and I were matchy matchy at church and everyone was like, what's up with the matchy matchy? What's up with it? Duh. Matching is totally coming back in style. So do it.

I'm sorry this blog is totally random but I have nothing to write about. I'm going to New York this weekend to see some of my fave New Yorkers, y'all know who you are. When I come back, I'm beginning the 40 Days of Yoga program at our studio. The participants are enlisting themselves to do yoga 5 days a week at the studio, once a week at home and then are given one day of rest. I know all of my non-yoga friends are like WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU, YOU HIPPIE, VESPA RIDING, FREAK? Well, don't worry non-yoga friends, I will keep you all abreast of my progress and let you know if I have any life altering experiences during my 40 days.

I know you wait with bated breath.

1. are you going on the fruit cleanse, as well, hippie yoga freak?
2. did aaron take the beer to church? or is he partaking in the 40 days of yoga as well?
3. did you title this in honor of your favorite friend (and mine, too, obvy)?
4. are you planning on being matchy matchy in NYC?

As much as I luv ya.... I absolutely CANNOT support the matchy matchy.

I was going to comment on the beer in Aaron's hand too...I wondered if that was part of the outfit or if he left it sitting outside the church doors so he could pick it back up on his way out...

I'm not sure how I feel about matchyness. I'll think on it and get back to you.
