headed to Whole Foods for a little dena/mak date

1. I ride a fixed-gear but not in a hipster way. Bianchi 4 life!

2. I don’t wash the toothpaste spit out of the sink after I brush my teeth and it drives Dena crazy. I don’t think I’m really that messy, but people tell me I am.

      Thanks Reena! we’re so glad you found us – as you can tell we’re new bloggers and haven’t got much attention outside the Houston community. anyway, makenzie is the “zine” one so i’ll be sure she sees your comment and responds (btw, she LOVES getting zines in the mail and i’m sure she’s jump at your offer)
      keep in touch,
