"i want to ride my bicycle, i want to ride my bike

I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like..."


The traditional gift for a couple celebrating their 6 year wedding anniversary is iron or candy.

My hubby gave me a Twix bar

But we also decided to get each other bicycles.

I realize that our anniversary was almost 3 weeks ago. But we have been so busy these past few weeks (fill you in on that later) that we have just started to look into what kind of bikes we want.

Even before I started to look at bikes, I knew I wanted a cruiser.

I had one as a little girl and would spend countless summer days just riding around my neighborhood. The streamers on my handle bars flying in the wind, those little plastic doodads riding up and down and up and down my spokes (do any of you know the name of those things?!)

Well, I found my bike folks. The bike gods refer to it as the Electra Om 3i.


But alas, it is out of my budget.

Sigh... why must I be a responsible adult and have a mortgage? Why can't I just spend my hard earned money on pretty bikes and cool little plastic doodads?

Iron and candy? Seriously? I didn't know that and my 3rd anniversary is in December! Bikes sound like a great idea, to ride together into the sunset!

Target had some really cute bicycles -- I'd recommend checking those out (if they're not already sold out). I really think that bicycles are the perfect anniversary gift, especially because you can enjoy them together.

My boss and her husband got each other bikes for Christmas last year. I thought it was sweet :) They had a cute little bike rack inside for them.

I think bicycles are the most perfect anniversary gift. Alas, my dream bike is too expensive too. I settled for a good one from Target and I still love it.

Scott bought me a bike last year. I really like it. It is a cruiser type style done by norco. You can go on their website and see what is available. although I do not know if they have any in pink....
