Ta Da!!



Here is our new acquisition!

We drove down to Ft. Walton Beach (yes, you read that correctly) to get it on Saturday. It really is everything that we wanted, and feel like we got a great deal, and that we were NOT taken advantage of.

It's an '06 Acura MDX.

It is taking some getting used to - it's so much bigger than Bullet!

And, yes, we traded Bullet to the dealer. Made me so sad! The entire drive down I kept thinking, "I can't believe that this is my last drive in Bullet!" The kids have even asked about it a few times, but they are liking the new truck.

We are going to name it Lightning.
Prissy was also a great suggestion that I liked, but the kids have decided they want it to be Lightning.

Well, I hope since you drove all the way to FT. Walton Beach, you at least enjoyed the sugar sand beaches! The car rocks by the way!

Congrats on the new car. It is always tuff saying goodbye to a car you have had for a long time. I remember trading in my Sunfire for my Saturn Vue, I was pretty sad too. You will love all the room you have in this SUV. Enjoy!!!

It's gorgeous! It's a far cry cooler than my "new" one--which is a 1995 Toyota Avalon!

(I really need to get out of government work, don't I?!) LOL
