  1. The picture of the boys at the falls is great! It has been really hot and muggy where I live so no outdoor anything – feel like a house/office prisoner….lol!

  2. hey y’all – great list! Love the pic of the boys and Josh so cool! Looks like a lot of fun there! Maria- love the list for Nordstrom! Y’all have a great day!

  3. For Josh – I just got the Garmin Edge 820 and am LOVING it!  It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but now that I have it, I love the ease of planning routes as well as all the metrics I get when I finish a ride. The map functions are great, the prompts (when I need them) are awesome, and the syncing to all my devices is very cool. One feature that I adore although I hope to never have to rely on, is that the computer will sense if you’ve had a fall or accident followed by no movement, and it can send a text to a contact of your choosing letting them know that you might need assistance….

  4.  At the beginning of the summer my husband and I were both searching for a new GPS device for biking. We came across the Garmin 35 forerunner. We are both avid mountain and road bikers and so far love this watch. I recommend checking it out. It is very easy to use and has been accurate.

  5. Josh, we use the Garmin Edge 1000. We have mounts on all of our bikes (tandems mostly) and can move the computer from one bike to the other. I like the ability to download a ride onto the Garmin and follow it that way. We really like it.

  6. For Maria: Man, those recipes look good. I’ve got to try them sometime!!! But on the songs, no offense, but I don’t really listen to any of the artists. I’ve tried some of them and I do not like them.
