We're Like This All the Time

I had the best day yesterday! I went out by myself for an hour and a half or so and went shopping! Matthew watched the kids for me. Graham is just about 6 weeks old. I have not been out by myself since before he was born and probably longer. It was great! I rode my bike to H&M and bought a few things. It was raining pretty steadily and I must say it felt great! On the way there it was just barely sprinkling so I had a dry shopping experience, but on the way home I got soaked. I loved every minute of it! I love riding the bike! Matthew said it best when he said that is makes everything seem whimsical. I think I smiled the whole ride home in the rain. Also, I am not going to lie, I hummed this song the entire time. I am not ashamed! I am sure I looked ridiculous riding my bike soaking wet with the biggest, dumbest grin on my face. What a fun, new combination of awesome things- shopping, raining and bike riding. If only I played tennis in there somewhere it would have been a perfect day.

Next item of business, Matthew has been growing out his beard for the sole purpose of torturing me, despite what he says. He has been growing it for about 3 weeks. So yesterday he decided to make his move. While I was sleeping he sneaked into the bathroom and shaved this atrocity. Behold the worst Matthew has ever looked:

Apparently, Ambrose Burnside, the man who is responsible for the modern day sideburns, was Matthew's inspiration. Awesome.

Someday maybe this kid can grow such luxurious facial hair and he and his father can both torture me. That actually sounds pretty awesome if I am being honest!

I know I should be ashamed of myself, but I'm actually proud beyond words.
