so… we have been planning, researching, saving, etc. for a new car for the last 3 or 4 months. we decided that we needed a vehicle with more space. space for more people (since our families live out of state, we never have enough room for additional passengers when they are in town or if we go to visit them), space for more stuff when we travel, etc. so…. we bought a freakin’ MINIVAN! am i serious??? Yes.I.Am.

for those of you who have known me for any length of time, you know that i said i would never drive a ‘mommy mobile’. i thought i’d just buy bigger SUVs as the space was needed. well… for multiple reasons (notwithstanding the expense of purchasing & driving a large SUV), i didn’t stay on that plan. but, at least i made it all the way to age 31 before i got mine. many of my friends were driving them in their mid 20s!

<--- here is my old cool car (montero sport)
we ended up getting a 2008 Honda Odyssey… the color is slate. we are going on vacation to florida in august. i’m sure that will be the point when i ‘fall in love’ with it as everyone tells me i am going to do!

here is the first ever ‘brand new’ car of mine—>

could i make a minivan look any cooler??? (agree or don’t… i’m really just trying to convince myself here!!)

    Actress Kelly Ripa said that they leased a minivan for their family vacation this year. She loved it! She said, “I will own a minivan before the end of the year. I am going to bring sexy to the minivan.” I think you have beat her to it, baby.

    I’m not going to go so far as to say that your new minivan is cool…but calling your Montero Sport your “old cool car” is a bit of a stretch.

    amy-that was so my reaction to buying our minivan, but too was swept away by how much it changed my daily mommy-life to have it. and, yes, God has my moment of purchase be in my mid 20’s, unlike i would have ever imagined. i had some vanity issues at first…know this is an older post, but i had to comment b/c i can so relate. :)
    you are lucky-that’s the best minivan on the market! (we have a dodge grand caravan) love it!
