Tell the pretty lady what she's won . . .

a BRAND NEW CAR!!!

You may remember seeing my sweet old car in some pictures. It looked like this:
It was a white 2005 volvo S40 - fully loaded, sunroof, dolby sound, 6 disc changer, leather seats, wood grain. AWESOME! I absolutely loved that girl! She was stylish and sporty, dependable and comfortable, the cat's pajamas if you will, and you will. Well, last weekend my hottie husband and I were thinking, "Man, we really need a car that we can take our dog children in. After all, our dog sons are each about 60 lbs and our dog daugther is going to be around 150 lbs. They need some place that they can ride. Now, don't kid yourself. We have a luxurious 1991 jeep cherokee with no air and a flat tire. Sure, it got us from point A to point B in the Texas heat, but we were profusely perspiring by the time we reached our desired destination. And, we're constantly having to move it around in our driveway in order to accommodate our three cars. Not an ideal situation. So, we kept hearing from different people that they had great deals on trucks and SUVs at our local Chevrolet dealer. We decided to give it a whirl, though we loved the Volvo with all our hearts. Two sedans (my husband has a sporty little silver passat) with leather interior just weren't cutting it.

So, after much haggling - boy, do I get a rush outta makin' a car salesman work for every penny he gets out of us - we came out with a brand spankin' new silver Tahoe LT2. Here's a visual:

She still sports the leather seats, the wood grain, the premium sound, the 6 disc changer, plus so so much more! The only feature I had to trade in with the Volvo was the sunroof. But, it will be so worth it for the room. And, I didn't know until yesterday that these babies have this little feature called Flexfuel, so she gets 28 mpg on the highway. Yay for new cars!

I would never be able to drive something that large! I run over curbs on my bicycle. It's a nice car, though.

I've been driving SUV's for about 10 years. I don't think I'll ever switch back to a car.

You'll love it, especially all the room for bringing your 'kids' along or for hauling whatever.

Congrats on your new ride. Hey, what color is it?
