Remember this post? and how difficult it was to make summer rolls with rice paper? Well, I decided to use two rice paper per summer roll and it was so much easier to make! Try it.
Let's talk about birthday presents! I got a bike from Mitchell for my 27th birthday! wohoooo. My bike got stolen (bummer) when we moved to California. I still go on craigslist hoping that I will find it there. I was a bit upset because I thought I would use it more here and I was also upset because it reminded me of my trip to Sicily back in 2010. I cycled all throughout Eastern Sicily and that bike was the bike I used to train in NH. Anyway, I was thrilled that Mitchell got me a bike. I decided to talk about it on this post because it's as purple as the vegetable below! It reminds me of it.
It is a Specialized Vita road bike. I road it today for about 7 miles and it was great. I hope I get to use it more when we move to the city.
Enough about me.... more about you. I hope your weekend is full of activities. It's been nice here so I hope you take advantage of the weather and get out there spend time with your family and friends and have some fun in the sun. Go to the beach, go for a run, bike, tan, make lemonade and sell it. I hope you do something you like doing this weekend.
