Shayne's Week One: The Open Road...and Meatloaf
I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous going in to this. I mean really, what can I do that is awesome? Apparently, a lot.
Over the holidays I spent a lot of time with my family...something I've been doing more of lately. I think as I get older I appreciate that time significantly more than before. My dad and I are planning on going to Spain when I finish my MBA and doing a couple hundred mile bike road across the northern part of the county. So last week I went out and bought a bike and went for my first real ride in years.
Dad met me at my house early Sunday morning and took to the roads of Downtown Orlando. For all of you that think Orlando is nothing more than theme parks, you're wrong. It was amazing. We biked through neighborhoods, around the lake, up and down city streets and even walked the farmers market. It was invigorating and nothing less than awesome.
After dad left I was refreshed and ready to go. I went about my Sunday business and decided that I would pull out my Crockpot for the second time in a year. I looked up a recipe and decided to make Meatloaf...well, Turkeyloaf. Who knew I could cook real food?
So needless to say week one was definitely awesome. I'm excited to see what the rest of the year holds. Get ready for some awesomeness.
