Have you ever wanted something so badly, that when it finally happens you don't know how to deal with it?

I am so giddy with much so that I said

This morning, I got a new car. Well, new to me. And the newest car I have ever owned.

We had the chance to buy this car, and we just couldn't pass it up. The loan terms are great, the payments very affordable even with our strict budget

It is a two door blazer, and I love it.

There are some perks to this car that most would take for granted, but I can't wait to use them.

Windows that actually go up and down without a fight...both sides. lol

Air conditioning. We haven't had air in any of our vehicles in 4 years. And while we don't have much really hot weather, I still feel nasty when I get home.

And something else that I love, that I have never had before...a sun roof. That is so cool to me.

But the most important part of it all, the car is safe and reliable. It doesn't idle to the point of being scary. It doesn't stall at intersections if they take to long. I don't worry about going to the cabin, my Dad's or down to Iowa. I know we are safe, and that is the most important thing of all.

This is one happy excited mama today!

That is great. I know what is like to drive unreliable cars. It is such a reassurance to have one you can depend on.

YEAH YEAH! I know you're excited. I had a car with 240,000 miles on it before I bought the van in April.

Very nice! So happy you got to get this nice new car! We bought my twins a used car this weekend too. It's old - but reliable and they will only use it until he finishes their 1969 Mustang he's rebuilding.

Have fun in your great new car - Kellan

Congrats on the new car. My last car had a sunroof and my new one does not. I really miss my sunroof! Enjoy!
