My New Ride!


This is was my 'ride'. I am proud that I am a mini-van driving mama {If you would have asked me this more than 4 year ago...I would have said, "not a chance in He**, will I ever drive a mini-van"} Mini-vans are so practical and they are so convenient. I love that both side doors and my back gate open with my key. {It is nice that my doors can be open before we even get to the car}
I LOVED this van when we bought it...almost 3 years ago! Now, I DO NOT love this van anymore.

Ever since this happened....
(Which was in no way my fault!)

...My van had been nothing but issues! It made noise and it likes to have certain things not work now and then. It did get me from point A to point B, but in my mind, I don't 100% trust that this van will always be reliable. 

so.....

 We took it to our mechanic and he fixed it up, so that we could sell it. We listed it on craigslist and carsoup and got a couple hits, but no one very serious. Then I got a call Saturday night, from a couple that was interested in it. They came to see it Sunday and Monday we sold it and closed the deal. {Did I just say that?!...we sold a car!} 

Well, without the min-van, we don't have a car that will fit 3 car seats and two adults, so Monday night, we were off to buy a new van. 
I knew what I wanted, so we were in and out of the dealership in under 2 hours!

 Here she is....
 (I'll have to get a better picture, when the weather is better)

I LOVE my new mini-van! Thank goodness for being able to be patient and sell my mini-van, so we could afford to get me a new one! :)
