Fiance bought me a BICYCLE yesterday!

Fiance, who already has a road bike, suggested I get a bike about a month ago. I instantly imagined myself riding around cobblestone roads, wearing a full skirt, pony tail flying in the air, scarf flapping in the wind. There are freshly cut flowers, a baguette, and a bottle of wine in my basket. Also, apparently, I am Audrey Hepburn and I live in Paris.


We go to a bike shop and I sit on a couple of bikes to get an idea of what size I need. Of course, I will only look at the "girl bikes" (i.e., a beach cruiser) and more importantly, what type of basket should I get? Wicker? Metal?

After some more research online, we decide on the bike above. It was waiting for me when I got home yesterday. YAY!

Fiance adjusts the seat for me and clips on an LED light in the front and back of the bike (safety first, guys). Lets take it out for a spin around the neighborhood. OKAY!

I get on the bike and suddenly-

"Do I know how to ride a bike?"

ERRR. OK I DO KNOW HOW, but its probably been15+ years since I've ridden a bike?

Needless to say, I was all WOBBLE WOBBLE, but I guess it's true that you never do forget how to ride one of these things. So they say.

We are riding to the bike shop after work today so I can pick out a rear mounted basket. And a baguette.

I always think of this song when I hear the word "bicycle."


  1. i instantly thought of that queen song when i saw that bike. it makes me want to ride my bicycle. i want to ride it wherever i like.

    and i don't like star wars.

  2. Don't forget to pick up daises too! Also, this allows you to say "want to ride bikes?" like you're 8.

  3. you're too cute. nice bike! it has a vintage look to it. makes me want to look into getting one, too.

  4. Please do me a favor. Remember to chain up that bike and take the tires with you, or else someone is gonna jack that sweet bike of yours. It is so sweet.

  5. So adorable--there are tons of these around New York, but I haven't seen one in this color. I love! <3

  6. I saw the title and all I can think of was...
    "I want to ride my bicycle...." lol

    I love the vintage look of the bike, great choice!

  7. Nice riiiddeee!!! I've always wanted a cruiser bike!!! Planned on getting one, but summer is over :( maybe next year... but yay for you!!! A basket is a must... and the baguette + flowers + scarf + very cute girly outfit.

  8. OMG I am dying of laughter....jajajjajajaja. You are sooo funny! I could only imagine how the how day went down and the things ur fiance was Let me tell u...I haven't ridden one either in like 15 years and it's because I had a horrible accident going down a hill and now I am super paranoid! I wish I was used to it and more comfortable! I would love to get a very chic one like that one u got! It looks absolutely fabulous! Have fun ridding it and be careful with those hills...that is my worst fear!
