Since I was born in 1988 I thought I would pay tribute to the wonderful, and bizarre decade. I think we can all agree that the 80’s was the birth era of some pretty hideous fashion trends (ummmm neon thong leotards?) but it also started a few trends that I think are quite brilliant. Ruffles, shoulder pads, acid wash jeans, and high waisted pants… I love them all! So I pulled out some 80's inspired pieces from my closet for a little trip back to my roots.

This is my bike, and yes I named him Ike (not very originial is it?) I purchased him at the Orange County Swap Meet for $30 dollars. He is a lovely sea foam green color, has a white basket, and makes troubling creeking noises approximately every 1.3 tire rotations. I went to Laguna Beach a few weeks back, where my bike has been chained to a wall for the last 8 months. Luckily, it was still there, a bit dusty, and a bit rusted... but I managed to smash open the lock, and bring him back to Provo!
I couldn't be more thrilled to have a bicycle again. I love riding my bike around town, exploring, people watching, and filling my basket with all sorts of silly things I find along the way. This week I plan to do some good, quality riding. I just hope Ike doesn't fall apart.
Mckay is great. He plays around with me on all my frivolous photo taking adventures.

I am kind of in love with the Olsen twins lately. Their style is incredible, and the perfect combination of grunge, rock, and boho. Yet, it baffles me how they are able to keep their fashion looking chic and feminine. I posted some of my favorite looks. I guess when you are 90 pounds, 5 feet tall, and look like a mischievous, pretty little elf... you look good in anything.

My family came into town to stay with me for the 4th of July celebrations. We had a great day full of old-fashion, patriotic festivities, and an abundance of red, white and blue. America turns 233 today, so happy birthday you big great nation!
People camped out over night just to have a spot for this parade.
My mom and I searched through booths of hippie handcrafts.
I wore a special red, white and blue outfit. Cheesy.....yes, but patriotic!
My two nephews C.J. and Trace. They are adorable and I love them!
