Buying a Car

I feel like this has been a LONG time coming, but the Husband and I are finally going to go look at a new car today! Thank the freaking lord. 

I don't even know if I shared this with you guys, but my car finally bit the bullet back in September. And we have been sharing one vehicle since then. We have been trying to come up with a good size down payment so that our payments wouldn't be ridiculous. But after sharing a car for five months,  it made absolutely no sense to wait another few months to save a few thousand dollars more for it to only affect our payments by $40.

Don't get me wrong, sharing a car really hasn't been that bad. At first it wasn't a huge deal. It was actually working out quite nicely. We were saving some extra money by not paying insurance on my old car and we weren't spending as much in gas. But then all of a sudden it wasn't working anymore. 

We are both tired of waiting around on each other to go places. Or not being able to go somewhere because someone else has the vehicle. We just can't take it anymore. And I am tired of being late to work every damn day because he can't get his butt out of bed on time. We are driving each other nuts.

But if all goes well today, we won't have to deal with that anymore. Yay! I can't wait! I just hope that we can find what we are looking for at a price that we are comfortable with and that they have it in a color that I like.  I refuse to buy another red vehicle. I have my reasons. And we have already got our financing in place. I took care of that this week already. I am a planner after all.

This is what I want. This color would be fine too!
So fingers crossed everyone that on Monday my weekend recap will include a picture of my new car! Eeek! I can't wait! Have a great weekend everyone! Hope the weather is nice wherever you are reading from!



  1. We could NEVER share a vehicle. I mean, we have 4 and it is still a pain sometimes! Haha. Good luck car hunting!

  2. Sharing a vehicle is awful. Commute-wise it's not bad but I didn't even think about what would happen if we had to wait on each other to go places. I'd be so stabby. Fingers crossed you find something good!
