Guess what!!?
Mark rescued my bike back yesterday!! He's pretty much my hero. I guess the guy rode by him on my bike so he turned and followed him to the beach - then even though he was with all of his friends Mark went up to him and explained that it was mine and got it back! Well, minus the basket...they had taken it off :( The guy said it was his "friends". Grr...
Before all this happened I had already decided that it was one of my favorite days - I had an amazing run in the morning, went for an early swim with my boys (mark and dog =)) and was looking forward to friends coming over for the World Cup - I even thought to myself - the only way it could get better was if my bike was returned...then it was!

These pictures were from when I was really sad about it and looking around on the internet for places to buy an old used city bike (that no one will want to steal). These are the styles that I totally want - Even with my bike back, I think I'll still keep my eye out for one =)

P.S. Thanks to Cat from Cat in DreamlandKelly Leigh, and EDK Dolce for the recent blog awards! You guys are pretty much the awesomest =)

That's AMAZING you got your bike back!! Way to go Mark!! :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

AMAZING!!!!! I love that he confronted the guy! Way better than my *sneak it while he isn't looking* approach. What an asshole. "my friends" "I found it" Whatever the excuse, that guy owes you a basket.

Marie said...

That story is awesome, as is your husband for rescuing your bike for you. How exciting that he managed to spot it, chase him, confront him and get it back (even sans basket). Oh and congratulations on the awards!

oh my what a cool story! and of course a happy ending too! it reminds of the day my bf saw a guy in the bus with his Eastpack bag he had lost more than 1 year ago! He went up to the guy and told him it was his pack (I cant remmeber what special marking it had but he was able to recognised it). the funny part of the story was that the guy gladly handed him his bag saying that he had found it 1 year ago in the bus and now the time had come to give it back to the original owner, he was actually part of the Jesus Chirst Ladder Day Saints and he was trying to explain that everything comes and goes....blablabla. Anyway, we had a nice day except for the last 3 minutes of the WC where Holland lost ;( Oh my! We were so sad....
