say hello!

say hello to our new additions-- last week h and i bought new bikes! after visiting six different bike shops we found the perfect ones. fancy pants (h) went all out and got a globe live with a built in rack.

i went with the linus dutchi 1 in pearl and i la-la-love it. i put in an order for a back rack and basket and once those are installed it will be perfect! (and yes, mom. we both have helmets!)

btw for those of you who are nervous to hop back on a bike (the last time i was on one it was a puffy paint huffy number back in fifth grade.) riding a bike really is... like riding a bike and after a few minutes i gained my balance and i was riding like a pro.

xo, 
jillian


ps: want to see our itty bitty bedroom?! check out my guest post over at a la mode.


o and i made the photo collage for this post by using my memories suite digital scrapbooking software suite...enter to win it.

  2. Ok, I know you're not supposed to buy a bike because of its cuteness factor, but your bike is really cute! Have so much fun riding around!
