a little bit of bike love

Remember cb's guest post about bikes? Well I'm still in search of the perfect bike. I actually bought one from Walmart but after I brought it home I realized I didn't like it at all. It was big and bulky and wouldn't even fit in the bike rack in our complex. not good. So I'm returning it and going to keep searching. Until then, I've been looking for some biking inspiration because I can't wait to be able to ride around campus!







I want my bike so badly!!! I'm just so picky and I also don't want to spend a whole lot of money. Those are two very conflicting things, my friends. But I will find my bike! Just in time to bike as soon as it gets warmer.

Speaking of cb, I got this in the mail yesterday....


How cute is this painting!?!? I love it so much! It currently sits right there on my desk and brightens up my whole room! Thank you Cristie!!!

  4. ugh yes! I've been looking for a while too, for something cute, fun, retro-esque to ride once the weather gets better. Good luck in your hunt!

  5. Yay, bikes! :) I found mine last spring on Craigslist (it was totally hard to be patient, while searching, there...but I found one within 3 weeks!). It's a lovely little vintage blue 70's bike, and it was $100 - *much* cuter than anything at Walmart, so try searching used ones for a goodie!! I need to give her a basket still, but she's lovely. Happy searching!
