Monday I wore my favorite little jacket. For a long time, it just didn't fit right. Now, it fits like a comfy glove. It is a stretchy green corduroy with puckers in the back and big brown buttons down the front. I just love it, but I admit, it isn't everyone's cup of tea.
Next to me is my new-to-me, adorable, mint green Ford Focus!!!
It gets, like, a million miles to the gallon and it is so stinkin' cute! I feel like a mobile commercial every time I get in.
I have a 2003, well lived in, Honda Pilot. It is an amazing vehicle. I has 3rd row seating, DVD, headphone jacks, charging outlets everywhere, leather seats . . . and about 100 puck and baseball dings-of-love. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my Pilot (and its green too- you can kind of see it behind the Focus). I had decided I would buy a new car in 5 yrs, when Carly turns 16. Jay decided to buy one Monday. He is a jump into it kind of guy. I told him I have such a hard time not getting excited when he dangles such fun ideas in front of me. Then he gets more excited about doing it, then, before we know it, we have a car.
I drove a Focus this summer in Minnesota and loved it. I especially loved not having to buy much gas. At $3.80 or so a gallon, it was such a selling point.
We happened upon this mint green gem while driving through Seekins Monday. It is a 2011 and only had 4800 miles on it. They were asking $17995.00 and we walked away with it at $14440.00 including the extended warranty. We put a little down, but Jay's friend and co-coach approved us for a screamin' deal without us feeling like we took advantage of his friendship. I know for many of you who do not live in Alaska that won't seem like such a deal, but cars are a bit more spendy up here. A 2012 without bells and whistles was going for 18-23K. I'm so stupid happy about this mint little car!
I drove all around yesterday, and even stuffed a hockey bag in the back and took Jase to hockey. To fit the sticks, we have to put the seat down, but I don't even care.
Its so cute and it matches my jacket (in an odd way).
