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 🙂
