All dressed up, somewhere to go

Saturday night we attended the Bicycle Transportation Alliance's annual Alice B. Toeclips awards gala. This seemed like a good time to go dress-up with my grey wool Bicycle Fixation knickers. Holly tacked down the inside of the cuff gussets for me so that they behave as they oughta. You can't see Holly's beautiful dress very well in this photo, so there is another photo featuring that garment.

    My husband loves an Abe. When we got married he asked how I wanted his facial hair. I said, "Anything but an Abe." This is what he looks like now. But, I can sense an Abe coming up soon. ;)
