get on your bikes and ride!

It was cold as crap today but Trent's bike finally came so we went cruisin! We love our new bikes but Trent's was a little bit of a surprise.
Notice the massive handle bars? We started bustin up when we saw them! We knew they were something called, "ape drape," but we never imagined! He had a hard time steering at first because the handles are waaayyy out there!

In the picture online Trent's seat just looked black, when we got it we realized that it wasn't just black. It was crushed velvet, two-tone swirly black. 

Needless to say, new handle bars and a new seat are on their way.  But we are seriously so pumped to cruise around Rexburg! We love longboarding but I swear the city keeps their sidewalks crappy just so skaters don't ride on them.

If the moon was made out of spare ribs, would ya eat it?

*Update* Chelse just reminded me of "the Trent Quote of the Day" from our Craters of the Moon Trip: (When the rent-a-cop told us we couldn't "skateboard" around here)
"Ugh! He called our longboards, skateboards!"

First, check this out: Flotsam & Jetsam

Second, I got the shingles. It's been hurting for like a week and these weird bumps came up on my tummy. So I skipped the last few hours of work today and slept for 5 hours. You get shingles when the chicken pox virus lies dormant in your body, waiting for your immune system to be weak enough and for you to be stressed enough and then it explodes. Plus allergy season just started and I ain't doin so hot. On that note, here are some pictures of fun before my body went all "viva la france" on me. (There are lots of running pics, cause that's what you do at Craters of the Moon)

Trent's b-day

Every year when Trent's b-day rolls around I find myself wondering what the heck to get him. What do you get for the guy who only wants 3 things a year? And for the guy who doesn't like most desserts?


Trent also thinks buying wrapping paper is superfluous, hence the newspaper.
(His birthday is in September, this reinforces my post last week about being the worlds worst procrastinator...or the world's best if you're a half full kind of person.)

I seriously have a problem. I get really bored looking at clothes but I could look at accessories all day and I wear necklaces almost every day. I LOVE necklaces. And massive rings. I love the look of bracelets but I can't type very well with them.

All of these are from Anthropologie, aka I will only own knock off's of these but they sure are purty to look at! (I especially love the starfish cuff!)

I love this gold trend, don't you?!?

there's something on your head.

What do you think of this growing poofy hair bow, flower thing, trend?
I've seen on very rare occasions a hit on this trend. And to me this is pushing it.

But she's a Princess! She gets away with wearing these things and bringing back the hat trend!
More often I've seen this and it just don't work.

Anyway, I'm not on board. And the thing that pushed me over the edge was seeing a girl from a class who usually looks so amazing. She would wear things that I would be too insecure to wear but are classic. I had such a high opinion of this girl, she looked like a modern Grace Kelly, wearing outfits like:

And then today I ran into her. Now I don't have a picture, but I'm pretty awesome at drawing so here is a fairly accurate sketch. The police should hire me.

Her hair was super crusty from trying to keep it in a short bun and she looked like a ballerina line backer. Also, I am the pink of perfection and can comment on these things.
