The Grand Rapids Tweed Ride was this past weekend. And despite the weather, it was a rousing success.
At about 3:30, during a terrential downpour (or so it seemed), we set out from our apartment for The Winchester. I must say that receiving compliments while in our nice duds riding in the rain made me feel a lot better.
Once there, we met the rest of our nine person band of merry men (and ladies). Including two strapping lads from the Windy City. But what am I babbling on about. The photos speak for them selves.
There are more photos, but these are the best of the lot. I had a blast! I hope everyone else did too!
Grand Rapids was not prepared. Many on lookers and photo takers. Next time will be even better!
Btw…vote for my shirt design! The contest ends tomorrow!!
There’s a reason to have a ladies night every once in a while.
There’s something to be said about sitting down with a good friend, no boys included, and normalizing your past experiences. It’s necessary to retaining sanity in an otherwise crazy world.
Recently, I’ve had a lot of female bonding experiences. Just last weekend, I went down to Cedar Point with 5 amazing ladies for my (soon to be) sister in law’s bachelorette party. Gossiping about those boys in our lives and talking about things like peeing in a funnel is something you just can’t get when there’s a penis present. Unless of course that boy is there to make your bond closer through teasing.
Another good place to have a ladies night is at a local pub with tasty food. Bonding over feta and goat cheese is always easier. And having Chris Klein and Adam Rodriguez show up can make things even awesomer. (In case you’re wondering, they’re from American Pie and CSI: Miami respectively).
So, trust me, if you haven’t had a lady date recently, it would do you some good to seek one out. You’ll never learn more about yourself if you can’t vent about things and have an objective perspective on the matter.
PS – Cheers to Nick and Kat’s wedding tomorrow!
