A dream come true

Words cannot describe how excited I am...and no, the baby is not here yet. In fact, found out today that the baby flipped breech, but that is another story. No, I am stoked because a lifelong dream of mine came true yesterday...are you ready for it???????? I own a mini van! Oh yes, i just said those words. I am totally not kidding. Since high school, a mini van has been my dream car. I always associated it with the whole soccer mom thing, which was my dream life.  Evan told me that I had to have 3 kids before we would resort to a mini van....well, #3 will arrive Feb 1st, so we are just making the cut.

We wanted to be really wise with our finances and were basically looking for something that #1 was cheap and we could pay cash for (no payments.....Dave Ramsey would be proud), #2 ran well, #3 had decent mileage and #4 fit us all. Everything else didn't really matter. We knew it would be older and we weren't concerned about curb appeal.

We found a great deal through a friend and couldn't pass it up. I didn't feel like taking the kids to go look at it and test drive it, so I trusted Evan with the decision. He obviously felt it was a wise one and I am glad he did. It is a little smaller than your typical mini van, but it fits us all and I don't feel like I am driving a bus. Now, we are ready for 3 car seats (and hey...we could fit a 4th if need be....just saying).

So, while you reading this may think I am the biggest dork in the world with my old school mini van, I think I am one step closer to super cool and just to prove it, here I am with my new pride and joy:)

Big momma in her van. 2 weeks left of that belly.

The kids were super excited to get in and refused to get out of the back seat.
