    Today's the day. Ordering my first ~new~ mountain bike. I've always bought used for whatever reason, but no more.

    I could not be more excited.

    She's pretty.

    Today's the day; the new bike is getting ordered.

    I don't know how I feel about immediately upgrading parts on a $5000 bike, but whatever I guess.

    I made some pan-fried chicken and a medley of roasted vegetables tonight.
