[i'm in love with my green bike. the two of them will be such good friends.]
chicago has been in the upper 80's all week. it has been nothing short but uuuuh-maaazing. can't complain. so today my bf and i took advantage of it. he got me a bike (it's green...how me is that?!). i was so excited because now he and i can explore the city together.
(we tried to do that with rollerblades the past two summers. it wasn't too successful. i was a big baby about it - plus it didn't help that i'm such a klutz. even before we left ryan's apt., i slammed the door on my foot, tripped over the bike, and managed to bruise my left foot against the weight of the door AND the bike. smooth, ilene.)
we then rode our bikes around the city for the rest of the afternoon until it was time for some chipotle and american idol (go LEE!).
[i can't wait for more days like these.]
