It’s Like Cocaine

by This is Carrie on September 20, 2008

I am so (stereotypically) in love with frozen yogurt right now (Cherry on Top specifically) that I might need to purchase this t-shirt.P.S. If you’re not mormon, it’s not that funny.

We came across a baby rattlesnake on our ride last night. I hear baby rattlesnake bites can be worse than adult rattle snake bites.

Girls Ride

by This is Carrie on September 18, 2008

The girls “big group” ride has ended for the season because it’s starting to get dark too early for everyone to meet up in time. But, Elise and I would like to think we can get just a few more rides in before we’re shut out by the short fall days.
