and here i thought we were just going to target

have you ever had one of those saturdays, when you don't really have anything on the agenda, so you figure you'll go browsing around your favorite big box store and just see if you figure out anything else to do?

yeah....we had that. sort of.

see, we fully intended to hit up target....but instead,
.....we hit up the home of this super sweet gong.

....where we bought this.

oh that's right, instead of a new shirt and some swedish fish at target....WE BOUGHT A CAR. i swear i do not understand our life sometimes.

in our defense...we've done a LOT of research already about what kind of car we wanted.

okay fine....NATE has done a lot of research while i've told him i hate white cars and i want cupholders.

but this bad boy is really perfect for us. it's EXACTLY what the hubs has been wanting, a 2011 hyundai sonata. only 40,000 miles on it. and it gets 35 miles to the gallon. which, when you commute 208 miles a day....gas mileage is SUPER important. the money we'll save on fuel will actually almost balance out with the fact that we've got a car payment again for the first time in 2 years.

i'm only mildly concerned that the car is smarter than both of us combined, and that the bitchy bluetooth lady is gonna hack my phone and change my facebook status without my consent.

PLUS, now the hubs can take his time swapping out the transmission in the mustang from a manual to an automatic, so once that's done....I AM GOING TO BE THE MOST EMBARASSING WHITE GIRL ON THE ROAD.  convertible + new sound system with a subwoofer = my dream driving life.

and i'll get to drive the new car on my 5 mile commute the 2 days a week nate works from that'll be sweet =)

happy monday y'all!
