Well, He certainly handled this one. A humongous tax return and a great trade-in price on my Honda Civic (plus a little help from an acquaintance who is a dealer) got us this fabulous minivan: A 2005 Nissan Quest with a clean record and good mileage. At first I just kind of liked it, but each day that I drive it, I grow to love it more. It is comfortable, handles great, and has such awesome features for our family! It doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, but after the car I was driving before (no light in the trunk and manual windows), it feels like a luxury car. Being able to open the doors or trunk with the click of a button is something I've quickly grown accustomed to!
Plus, it's not ugly. I think it looks pretty cool, actually. Definitely a plus. :-)
Now this is my life, complete with the giant playset in the back yard:
I wouldn't have it any other way.
The van came just in time for Brennan to start soccer in a few weeks, so I guess I am officially a soccer mom now. At least I don't have to be a really lame one.
In other news, the nursery is nearly done. Here is a peek at the bedding:
More nursery photos to come next week. I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
