Spontaneous Purchases

I must say that a spontaneous purchase is my favorite kind of purchase.  They are always the ones I get most excited over, and I always remember them.  A beach cruiser is an item I have always wanted to own.  I've always dreamed of having a Lilly Pulitzer cruiser but never wanted to pay the $400-ish for it, not to mention the numerous (unsuccessful) contests/giveaways I've entered to win one and, of course, never won.  I spent a few days of last week back at New Smyrna Beach, FL.  While going for a light bulb run to Walmart, my eye caught sight of this darling green (pistachio, to be exact) cruiser.  Seeing it was only $88, I was very tempted to purchase it.  I then told myself if there was a wicker basket to go with it, I'd cave in and buy myself this cruiser.  Well, as you can see, there was a wicker basket, and I caved in and purchased the cruiser.  I'm so happy I did!  Riding it down the beach was so much fun.  Now all I need is a seat for Jaycee (the basket wasn't the right fit for her…and not too comfy).  Of course, I just had to buy some flowers to put in the basket.  But I think my favorite part was putting my Jack Rogers in the basket :)

Do you often make spontaneous purchases?  What is your favorite item you've spontaneously purchased?

Stay Tuned!


  1. I LOVE your bike. I have a beach cruiser and it was the best investment I have ever made. Electra makes a fun dog basket. You might try them. We are headed to the Florida Panhandle next week and I can't wait to take some cute pictures on my bike. You inspired me. :)

  2. Such a cute bike! and I love the jacks!
