not your typical saturday!

well, the day started out like any normal weekend saturday, trip to starbucks and to run errands! after the errands we were supposedly off to my cousin's daughter's birthday party..which we never made it to because.....

well, julie always likes to cruise this car lot to see if they have any bargains as she really is need

of a new car...well, 5hrs later and i have a 2004 nissan xterra-bright yellow, how obnoxious is that color!!!hehe and she is the proud owner of a 2007 xterra-toffee, she got a great deal on her car and a great trade in value on her SUV, everything was going wrong on that..so we thought if she got a good deal on hers what could we get on mine.....well, i just had the climate control system go out, need rear/front brakes, the electronic driver window is dead and figuring all this, we decided that this is the perfect time to turn my volvo in too...so i have the big bird now.....
the only bad thing about getting my car is that my budget is blown and i cannot go to artfiberfest now, which is really really sad, but sometimes i have to just let go, there is always next year...BUT, i will be going to ARTFEST, no two ways about that......
ps..remember tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the pineapple quartz bracelet giveaway..scroll down.......

Whoooaaaa Baby!! that is some car...love it. What a happy and free spirited color. I think you Saturday was divine. I've been wanting to trade my Honda CRV in for a while now and you have spurred me on. Although it's been nice not to have car payments for the past four years.
Congrats to both of you on your new wheels.
