Mommas got a new ride...

Yes this laid off worker who probably has no business getting a new car 
Just got one!! 

My old car was purchased used 12 years ago and I fully intended to drive it another five years!

But it died, darn it  YIPEE

Big time engine work was going to be needed and it's simply not practical to put money into a 99 Ford Explorer

So my sweet hubby sent me off to pick out a car that I wanted !  He didn't want to drive it , didn't want to know how much it was, he just said  
"you deserve it, so go get one"

 {Yes this is the kind of man I was lucky enough to marry }  

I love the Ford Edge and have many friends who are huge fans of the Jeeps
But we knew at the end of the day we were going to buy a Toyota !
Our  friends own the "Toyota of Temecula" dealership and you simply cant beat the sales and service you get when you buy a car from them! Travis drove here a few months ago to get his new Highlander and Chad and I both bought our last cars there. I would say no matter where you live, it's worth the drive for all the extras they make sure you get spoiled with!
So I drove in with my old Ford and a couple hours later drove home in this!
It is so sporty and fun and it smells divine ! They hooked up my blue tooth for hands free calls and it has XM radio and plays Pandora right from my phone.
I haven't had a new car in over 20 years and I truly appreciate every single thing about it!
The dash feels like a cockpit and I feel a little Judy Jetson driving such a fancy car
I NEVER want to come across as braggy but truly just want everyone to know how thankful I am !
And promise me if you are in the market for a new car....
Try Toyota of Temecula Valley  first!
You will be glad you did !

Hey Sophia, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new car. I bet you look just darling zipping around town in it and your Jackie O sunglasses. Honestly, there is nothing more fun than a new car...the smell is to die for. Honestly I have such a desire to come to CA for a visit. Whenever we would have a few free days I would think that we should head up north (since we used to have so many grandchildren in that direction) but now that Kaci lives here, maybe we can go south sometime soon and we could meet for lunch, etc. Fun! I'm going to give that some thought.

Have a fun day and drive texting!

I love your new car. I am going to be in that same situation soon. My car is about 13 years old. I want it to last until my kids are more responsible. However, the day is coming quickly that they are going to need to become responsible, because ol' "Betsy" ain't going to last much longer! The Venza looks nice. I am a Toyota fan!!
Enjoy your new ride.
