It's a bird, it's a plane...it's a NEW YELLOW SCOOTER!



What a completely, absolutely AWESOME weekend! No question about it.... I have sore cheeks and new eye wrinkles from smiling so much. It all started Friday morning with my sweet,thoughtful husband surprising me with a new,bright, yellow moped! Can you beleive it?  It was especially surprising because it was my mother's day gift and since Mother's day was 3 weeks ago, well lets just say that I really wasn't expecting it.....

I have DREAMED of having a scooter ever since my big brother Curt got one when he graduated from high school. I guess I must have been about 14 at the time and I took more than one exhilirating (unauthorized) spin around the block on it. Boy was I ever sad when Curt took that cool red moped with him when he left for college. From then on, I have held a secret fantasy that one day I would have one of my own. I could just imagine how fun it would be to putt around town, beeping my horn, waving at everyone.....


well friends, the dream is now a reality! I have my scooter. I still can't beleive it! Tom, I am so overwhelmed that you would remember my crazy obsession with mopeds and actually buy one for me. I love you!

Friday evening I dropped off the boys, (thanks Granny) and headed up to Diamond lake for a bit of 'girl time'. Put 7 women together in a beautiful lake home and what do you get....??? Great food, tons of conversation (of course...7 women, HELLO!), yummy drinks, guitar hero, singing, snacks (cheese in a can on wheat thins...YUM), stargazing, laughing until my sides hurt.....SO MUCH FUN! I came away with much more than just a sunburn and an extra 5 pounds. Thanks to Kelly, Jacki, Arianna, Marie, Brenda and Joy for a truly memorable time. You are special to me.....

I am so jealous! I would have loved to have had one of those instead of my Chevy Spectrum. Can't wait to see you cruising around town w/ Kellan on the back....right?
