Guess who’s getting a car? ME, ME, ME!!!

Okay folks, I am finally getting something other than a complete rust bucket! That’s right, I am replacing the Ghetto Sled (as Kevin affectionately calls it) with this beauty: {{popup 4240.jpg 4240 640×480}}’97 VW Cabrio. I just put in for the loan today and after I get the fax from the lady at the bank, and then sign and return it, she is mailing a check to the dealer for my car!!!!! It’s mine! It’s mine! My dream car…. it’s mine! I’ve waited so long for an opportuity like this, so please enjoy my happiness with me!!! It is standard and has only 55,000 miles on it. It is also from Florida, so the salt and damage that could occur have been kept to a minimim. It does have a tan top (which I hate because they get so dirty looking), but a friend of mine knows where to get it dyed for cheap. Otherwise it only costs between $200-$300 to replace with a black one. I will do that later though. For now I am just happy to have gotten a reliable car for once in my life. I will be driving home in October for a wedding and will be picking it up then! YEAH!!!!

    I’m thrilled because you want it, it is cute but to me- you’ll be safe! It will also make it to Kansas City (hint hint- besides being hot and dry do you people not like KC- someone come visit me).

    Good for you!! Love it. I think they are cute, sporty, great on gas, and FUN! I told Bob that would be the car I would buy for Delaney if she was in college. He said, Nope she is getting a JEEP WRANGLER! Love it and we are very very happy for you!! Can’t wait to see you in October. Delaney’s friendship bracelets have been the hit this summer. Hint, hint- she needs more. The button is a great idea- make them easy to get on and off. You’re so smart (and cute too!) Can’t wait to see David over the holidays. It’s been too long.

    Yes, and David will be with me when I come too (better for the drive)! I am hpoing for a corn maze trip when we are there, if anyone is interested! It’s so much fun! Another Erin/Beth tradition!

    By the way, David is planning to be home with me for Christmas too, so I am so excited and I hope you will all be happy to have him! Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!
