Early Sunday morning, the Beefinator woke up early and informed his father and I that he had "nothing to wear." Well, knowing that I had just 2 days prior folded 17 (yes, that's right Seven-TEEN) pairs of jeans in his closet and I knew that there were at least 75 tshirts, sports jerseys, and polos in his dresser drawer, I took issue with that statement. I insisted he prove that he really was one outfit away from nekkid. The picture is the only items of clothing he could pull on and button, even though it looked painted on. He spruced up the hair and got his best geek look going on for the picture. (Notice the piles of clothing that no longer fits piled on the sofa........ that's just the tip of the iceberg!) So we brought every stitch of clothing down to the living room and played fashion show. 100+ items of clothing tried on later, the ugly truth was confirmed....... the boy had grown overnight out of everything except 2 pairs of jeans and half a dozen tee shirts. This sad turn of event necessitated a road trip to West Towne Mall in Madison (my favorite) for some POWER SHOPPING- my favorite endurance sport. We fixed the near-nekkidness situation at all of my favorite places - Aeropostale, Abercrombie, Hollister, PacSun, and many many more. I was in shopping heaven!
Lucas was quite happy with his new wardrobe, but he definitely needs to work on his endurance a bit........ he passed out from exhaustion in the Matrix on the hour drive home, but damn he was a well dressed napper! It's just sad when the offspring of endurance athletes can't hang with the big dogs isn't it?
Now, speaking of things that have been dressed up, Mike has been needling me to post some more bike porn with her newest updates. Notice the Pink FuelBox, perfect for holding my phone, powerbars, and dog spray on those long rides. Also, note the smokin hot pink bottle cages, lightweight yet still girly. *SIGH* She's lovely isn't she? I can't wait to get her dirty!
What? What is my favorite addition you ask? Yeah, that would have to be the PINK Crank Brothers Quattro SL eggbeater pedals.
