So what’s the secret I’ve been keeping?  You guessed it, Ryan and I bought a new car!  We bought it to replace my mini van so that when we have kids we have a much more dependable vehicle.  We bought the new 2005 Scion Xb.  I know ugly but kinda cute right?  

Seems kind of crazy but this thing comes fully loaded, has as much internal room as my van and gets 36 miles to the gallon IN TOWN!  Not to mention it is cheap.  After tax, title, and licence, everything it cost $16,943.00 which is almost impossible to get for a new car let alone a van.

I absolutely love it and I can’t wait for Ryan to come home so he can be excited with me!

And on another note here is the gate that we had installed.  It used to be just a solid wall of brick. 

Not much else going on around here.  I hope all of you are having a good weekend so far.  I will try to update again later.

Song of the day? The Greatest by Kenny Rodgers.  Why?  Just because I love this song and it makes me happy.  Not to mention it’s baseball season again!  It’s such a great song about life.  It is all in the perspective.  It is what you choose to make of it.  Have a great night everyone!

I am excited…though I am going to drive my mom nuts because I know nothing about planting flowers!!
