A little windy. We didn't catch anything but the kids had a ball just casting.
Sunday morning we got up early and shooed the kids off to Jeff's sisters for the day.
There were about 150 bikes in the run. This one was a benefit for the Axemen, a motorcycle group that's members are Michigan Firefighters. They use the money to help families that are in need.
On the run you get a map and an envelope. On the outside of the envelope are numbers. Inside the envelope is a paper with all 52 cards from a d eck listed. You follow the map and at each stop on the map you draw a chip with a number. They punch the number on the outside of the envelope.
Each stop is a bar!
Try staying on a bike after a dozen Tequila Roses!
It's not a pretty picture.
Anyways the last stop you have dinner and the best and worst poker hands out of the envelopes get a prize. Even though we didn't win, we had a ball! What a great way to kick off the bike riding season!
The lady who won the best hand had such an uncommon last name I had to ask her if she was related to my Godfather. It turns out her husband is his nephew. What a small world!
I also met the most incredible and inspirational person. Her name is Jenna. She came on the run with her Dad. She laughed and smiled the whole time. It would be impossible to be in a bad mood around her. She is 18 and graduated from High School last year. She was class valedictorian and made the commencement speech. She has just been accepted to U of M on a full scholarship. She is studying to be a social worker for handicapped people. Her and her family have raised over 250,000.00 for Muscular Dystrophy. She is very active in the fight against MD since she was born with it. Her Dad says they have yet to find something she can't or won't do.
I think the best part of the whole day was meeting and spending time with Jenna!
And how was your weekend?

here. I obsessed about this desk. I was a Craigslist virgin until this desk. I scoured tons of desk postings looking for one similar. I even went to out of state listings. I cried and whined and threw a good old 3 year old tantrum when I didn't find one.
But... you know what they say about love. Sometimes it is right under your nose.
I turned the corner at the antique mall the other day and squealed with delight. Yes, I squealed. Squealed like I have never squealed before. The poor worker guy came running over. I think he thought I hurt myself.
It doesn't have the sexy curvy legs like Tara's, but neither do I. Can't hold that against someone right?
Tomorrow is the day. I am going to march right in there and proclaim my love for this desk to everything listening. We will be together!

This is one of my favorite booths here. I can always find something.
This is the little something I have my eye on lately. It's a Hoosier cabinet. It was used for baking. It has a table that extends out also. I just imagine this little beauty in my kitchen. Painted too. Ahhh......
A cute little sideboard that I think would go great in the girls room for Syrina's clothes.
LOVE these chairs!
This was absolutely love at first sight! This is exactly what I want for the puter area.
A camera that I may get for my little vinette of old photos. How cute would this look tucked away among some old photos and some new photos in sepia?
Some old kitchen chairs and a bargain too at $18.00 apiece.
The table I am considering for our kitchen. I think it would add alot of room to the space instead of the round one we have now. Make more room for that Hoosier cabinet too!
