{ friday i'm in love }

It's FRIDAY and I'm in LOVE...

I love everything about it.

It's creamy color,

it's awesome back rack,

the contrast stitching on the handles,

{ s w o o n }

and as soon as it arrives, a little whicker basket.

{ more swoons }

I finally did it, 

I went out and bought myself this bicycle today.

I've been wanting a bicycle for some time now.

I was hoping to find a vintage one, but instead

I found the next best thing a new retro style hybrid.

I haven't had a bike since I was a little kid, and

I have to tell you, It is absolutely the most fun...

I totally feel like a kid again.

I can't wait to get out and ride with my little wrens and fly like the wind,

they are going to be so happy but not nearly as happy as their mama... 


My bike is perfect in every way for me, and it's such a great workout too.

I took her out for a spin as soon as I got her home and my quads felt huge when I stopped.

I was panting, sweating buckets, and grinning from ear to ear...


{ if you've seen Dispicable Me, I'm so happy sounds like "It's so Fluffy" }

My friend Tami went with me today to pick her out, and we've already planned to go out 

for a trail ride next week, I am so excited I don't think I can wait till next Friday.

I think I'll name her Gretta with two t's...cuz that's just how I roll.

I don't know why I must name it...I just have to.

  1. I LOVE it! and am so happy to enjoy vicariously! I went to a local bike shop several times through the summer and they never had anything but gungy 10 speeds. Good for you. Have a great weekend! xo Erica

  2. You are so cute and please take a picture with you riding it for us! I love the color and the basket will be so cute. Have you thought of a bell? I"m not kidding! I have one and it has been helpful in getting people out of the way when riding with the kiddos!

    Enjoy your ride!
