meet the newest member of our family.
acquiring this car has been no easy feat-- we started researching the car classifieds around march. i estimate we made over 50 inquiry calls, test drove over 25 cars, spent $100 (twice!) at bountiful mazda for "used car inspections",and made one trip to las vegas as well as one to salt lake city.
after all of that? still no car.
funny, but when your budget is basically the equivalent of lindsay lohan's last month's bar tab?
yeah.....you're options are gonna narrow.
be patient, we told ourselves. the right car will come along. we are in NO hurry. we are willing to wait.
somebody who was not so hot on waiting?
so it was a christmas miracle when this one dropped into our laps. and we decided to "make the relationship work".
we couldn't be happier:
**for the record we would like to apologize to kaitlyn for not following the incredible example that p diddy set in purchasing THIS car for his son, justin's 16th birthday last year:
as well as state for the record that we saved $356,600.oo
