Our gift to Jed on Father’s Day was that we would do anything he wanted to do ALL.DAY.LONG.
When you’re a dad of all girly girls you sometimes find yourself getting a pink pedicure, shuttling gossipy girls to dance classes, and spending a ridiculous amount of time braiding hair.
So Jed spends a lot of time alone in the garage with oil and parts and metal and lifts and tools and stuff. Garage stuff. There may also be a small fridge with beer out there.
Anyway, after a required visit to Dunn Brothers for his morning coffee(Jed’s been there 4000 mornings in a row!) he said he wanted to go to a bike rally.
So I dressed for the bike rally wearing my Anthropologie Bicycle dress from this season…because DUH, and then made the girls coordinate in blue and white and we were ready to go look at bikes.
Jed did not get the wardrobe memo nor realize that “proper dressing and coordinating” was required for a bike rally. It’s like he doesn’t know me.
Anyway, it wasn’t a ‘bike rally’ – it was a ‘bike rally!’
It’s like I don’t even know my motorcycle man.
I won best dressed.
Astrid begged Jed to buy her a purple motorcycle. I have this feeling a purple bike will show up in our garage this Summer. Jed likes bikes like I like dresses. Guess which costs more?
Did you know I used to have a purple motorcycle? I called it the ‘Purple Nurple‘ because I wasn’t a mother yet. Maybe someday I’ll post some motorcycling pictures of myself. Or not.
Anyway, then we went to a classy little neighborhood bar called The Nook for dinner(the best burger in town or so I’ve heard since I don’t eat meat) because kids eat free on Sundays and they all kind of yell “Jeeedd” when we walk in. (Also if you ever want to meet us – come to The Nook at 4:30pm any Sunday – trust me..we are there).
And because Jed just had his 15 minutes of fame as he talked about the importance of motorcycle safety on our local ABC news affiliate - I thought I would share the video here. Jed’s the tall guy with the beard who is talking Rusty through getting started on his bike. See, he totally exists – as I know I’ve gotten questions before about my mystery husband.
Mainly I don’t blog about him because he refuses to dress like us.
Anyway, I’m linking up to What I Wore Wednesday with The Pleated Poppy because isn’t this a fashion post?
