I Thought I Was So Cool When.... #FTSF

   Usually I don't do the blog hop things where you write about a specific topic. But this one.... I just couldn't help myself. Today I am linking up @ Janine's Confessions of a Mommyaholic on her blog hop called Finish This Sentence Friday. I think everyone can relate to this sentence for sure.

I Thought I Was So Cool When...

   ...I went bike riding with my kids the other day. I got a new bike last week (after about 10 years of not riding one), with a pretty pink helmet (I must be safe... or at least to make sure my kids wear one too), and a cart hooked to the back that holds the baby. I was so excited to go bike riding every day, feeling the wind in my hair, getting some much needed exercise. 8 days straight I went out on the bike. I started feeling really good about myself, I felt as though I was loosing weight and looking good. I was feeling confident (which hasn't happened for a while). I thought I was so cool, riding around town on my pretty new bike with the baby in the back. Then it happened...

   My husband decided to take a picture of me on my bike. That ruined every bit of confidence that I had left. I've had three children which have each taken their turn to destroy my body entirely. I have also somehow become a huge dork. I looked so goofy with that bright pink helmet on that I didn't even shed a tear yesterday when I "accidentally" ran over it with the car. It really was an accident but I think it might have been a subconscious thing. =)

   So I am sharing the picture... or at least the best one out of the bunch. As you can see I will need to do a years worth of bike riding to get into shape. CJ loves the new bike so much that he decided to nap during our ride. I just love how we can think we are so cool. I don't care what people think of me, so I will continue to ride my pretty bike, and wear my pretty pink (semi-smashed) helmet, and I will ride into the sunset!

Finish the Sentence Friday


  1. Oh Danielle, I love how you looked with your bike with your pretty pink helmet (pink is my favorite color, always was and always will be!). And bike riding truly is the best exercise and do the stationary in our house for exercise, but do wish I had my bike again to use it orders. I loved this post and have followed you all over now. And thank you for linking up with us and hope you will join us again now!! :)

    1. Your too kind! Lol Pink isn't my fav (being surrounded by boys and all) but I love my helmet anyway... Hopefully next time he takes a pic of me I will be a little thinner from all the bike riding. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Ah bless you. Your bike's awesome and look how happy your baby is. That's awesome, which should trump 'cool' any day :)

    1. Of course he's happy, he doesn't have to do anything but lay there!

  3. OMG hilarious to the "accidentally ran over it with the car." And you look great. Kids and life does what it does. You are exercising, getting out into the fresh air - that is awesome, and more than I've done today for sure. Or this week. Ok fine, this year.

  4. Hey I think it is cool that you rode with your kids. It is uncool of the husband not to photoshop the picture first :)

    I personally love the picture. It shows you are having fun and that is always cool!

    1. Totally agree, it should have been photoshoped!


Let me know what ya think!
