hi, hello.

Beezus, I'm glad you're here! Welcome to my blog.

Join me on my adventures for healthy, whole, clean eats and workouts that move my feet-s!  

Squad UP: Dusty J, Annie M, & Beezy B go Lakefront Cruisin'

Squad UP: Dusty J, Annie M, & Beezy B go Lakefront Cruisin'

uh huh, Lakefront cruisin'. 

Ah, Chicago summer, you're a gem. Those sweet sunny skies and cool breezes. Puhllease, I'm feeling ALL the biking VIBEz! Now, normally I just cruise the Lakefront trail solo [well, + White Lightning]. I clip my helmet tight, pop in my headphones - don't worry, one ear bud in and the other out! - and shuffle a little Spotify magic. [OR, lately I've been listening to one particular Mariah Carey song on REPEAT because there is NO better cruising song ... she's on rollerblades in the music video. It's pretty much meant to be.]

White Lightning and I scoot, scoot as fast as we can to the Lakefront trail. If you're not familiar, it's a paved trail that spans Chicago's lakefront for miles upon miles. People run, walk, bike, blade ... or choose to ride these ridiculous double-wide FOUR seater bikes [don't get me started]. It's a busy-b place, but I LOVE it. 

This past weekend my two gal pals - Dusty J and Annie M - said, GIRL, let's go for a cruise. OK! The weather was boppin' and the bikes were ready to jam. 

The squad met at North Ave beach. Annie M rolled up first with her Divvy. [Hey girl]. Then Dusty J cruised over with Blue Thunder. [Ka pow]. We applied LOTS of sunscreen, giggled and gaggled, then jumped on the trail. TOOT toot, BEEP beep. Our mission was to ride south to Buckingham Fountain near Grant Park. 

mission accomplished! 

mission accomplished! 

I documented the trip. By pictures? ?Oh no, no. Beezy b brought her specs :) [LOL]. 

...and to be a TAD 'extra', I decided to make an iMovie with the snapchat videos [LOL x2]... first things first, I've NEVER made an iMovie. I don't think I've ever even opened the application on my computer. But do I back down to challenge?! NOPE. "How To" Googling can be quite beneficial.

But give me some slack here. I'm no vlogger. I'm just a beezy b looking for a squad to, you know, #ridewitme. 

Pardon me, Dusty J. You were so rudely cut off at the end of the video. Let me finish for you...

TOOT TOOT, beep beep.

Gals, it was SUCH a pleasure. When's the next cruise?!
