I warned ya'll I'd be late with my next post...'course I didn't think I'd be this late. But whatevs. I'm here now, so quit fussing. That said, since it's been a busy few weeks and I am crazy-stupid-banana-pants busy at work and home right now, you get the highlight reel.
Dave and I took a few days off and rode up to the Concours Owners Group's Run with the Wolf Rally in Suches, GA. I just finished the first draft of the article I was asked to write for the COG magazine. I'll post it here as soon as it is done. But some pics that won't be in the article:
So this happened:
We got there early and spent a night in Helen, GA, famous for being a faux German town with very real German food.
They have Fat Tire in GA. WHY DON'T THEY HAVE FAT TIRE IN FL??!!!
There was much merriment made with my Bear Hat.
And much silliness around the Campfire. The SE Coggers freaking ROCK!
It rained on Friday, but we goofed around the campground all day and still had fun.
By the way, if you haven't noticed we are A-dorable.
On Saturday the weather cleared and we made the obligatory Deal's Gap run.
Oh right, like I wasn't going to buy the Killboy shots?
Does this bike make my butt look fast?
Why won't this guy get off my ass?
The following weekend, my college buddy Kelly came to visit. We shopped, we ate,
And we beautified and went out and partied.
Sara joined us at Hiram's one night too. There was also a sighting of the rarely seen Library IT guy that night as well. And by sighting I mean he drove our drunk asses home.
We had a blast and the weekend went far, far too quickly as it always does.
Last week, several chapters of Women in the Wind got together for an overnighter at Destination Daytona. On the way there, Liza, Sabrina and I took our bikes swimming, but I think I'll save that story for another day. Once in Daytona, we shopped, ate, drank, ate and drank some more. It was one of those days.
What? We shared the bucket!
Which brings us to this weekend. We hadn't had a Shop party in awhile, so since Dave C and my bro just got new jobs this week, it was Lindsay's birthday AND it was the 2nd anniversary of Cantaloupe Day; a celebration was in order.
Yes, it's a couch. And no, we could not be more redneck.
What you're looking at here is my awesome friend Jacqui, who I had not seen since elementary school (Yay, FB!) and the Vodka Watermelon that my brother made. Jacqui took her entire first Fellsmere/Shop Party experience in stride, and proved just how amazing she is by not being freaked out by a bunch of goofy, couch-burning, karaoke signing hi-tech rednecks.
Did someone say Karaoke? It ain't no Shop Party if there ain't Karaoke.
It was a great time, as usual...though unfortunately it appears that my iPhone is the sole casualty of the evening. Holden had it all night, so he could play his music in the house for the other boys. Come morning it was no where to be found.
I am now on Day 3 without my iPhone. Things are getting desperate. I had to call my IT guy/work-husband at the other branch to peak at my desk calendar to make sure I wasn't forgetting to do something today. And I had to listen to the radio on the way into work this morning...like some kind of Barbarian.
