Our First Car!!!

We welcomed a new member into our family today. This is going to be like one of those posts when I first gave birth and I just shared a picture and a few words, with more details to follow. I'm too exhausted now to write up a whole thing, but I couldn't not share the news.

Today I bought my first car. 

Yes, at 35 years old -- today is my birthday!-- I now am a first time owner of a car. Best birthday present ever!

First car for me. First time my family has a car of our own.

It was a lot of work and a lot of headache, but she's finally here. 

Yes, it's a she, I decided. I'll have to decide on a name with my kids.

But we're now proud owners of a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country minivan. 

More details to hopefully be shared soon.

But squee with me?

  1. Awesome! My best friend has a car, and she named her (yea, also a "she") Maddie. I jokingly suggested her to name her Christine, but she didn't get that Stephen King reference, lol.
    This will be so good for your family, you can now road trip (depending on the gas cost where you live, of course!) and you'll be more comfortable in your scratch-and-dent shopping trips, I presume!

  2. Congratulations and belated Happy Birthday! What a gorgeous colour; happy driving in her!
