New Car

For some reason when it comes to big purchases, Tyson and I are quick to make decisions. Both of us, unknown to each other, have wanted to get a bigger car. I mentioned something to Tyson about it in passing on Thursday and by Friday we drove home in a new car! It is a 2007 Saturn Vue-- 4 cylinders, 5 seats, huge trunk space (fits our double stroller with extra space leftover), alloy wheels, IPod plug, and my favorite- heated seats! We are growing out of our little Altima and are LOVING all the space we have in our SUV. Tyson actually has a little extra leg room and I don't have to hug the dashboard anymore. We got a great deal with the economy being the way it is and couldn't pass it up. We decided to keep our Altima because the dealership was only going to give us $1,400 for it to trade. We're going to try and sell it on our own for much more than that. Until then, we are LOVING having 2 cars at the moment. No more schedule conflicts with who needs the car. No more early morning drop offs to work so I can have the car. It's been really nice. We've been really blessed.
This isn't an actual picture of our car. Our car is a storm gray color. I LOVE it!

So Fun! There is just something fun about driving a new car. You are so lucky to be buying right now! We bought a new car last February and really regret not waiting until now. Oh well, what can you do? Have fun with the extra space and heated seats! :)
