Despite what they say...

...smaller is better! That is right people! We finally did it! On our way home from Ukiah today we stopped in the bay area and picked up a new Mini Cooper! After 6 years we finally got our dream car and I still can't believe the cutie is ours! It really feels like we just drove it down here for someone and will be giving it up in a few days.

It was a tad stressful driving home making sure I wasn't going too fast since it is VERY easy to do, but it was also fun learning all of the new features. Oh!! And it even has seat warmers!! I am SO excited! Granted I didn't get to use them until the last 10 minutes since it was so hot during the drive, but it was awesome. I really wanted the warmers, but I knew I didn't have to have them. I was totally willing to sacrifice that feature to get a good deal, however I didn't have too! That was one reason I wanted this car because I knew it had them. Heck I guess it has a bunch of upgrades, but John knows more about them then I do. We saw this car a couple of weeks ago when we were in the bay area, and last week it was reduced by a grand and it was still there today for us to buy today. I definitely think it was meant to be.

Sorry the first two photos are in the dark but we didn't get home until 8:30pm. The only day time photo I have is at the gas station...but at least you can get a better idea of the color.



John's going to get insurance tomorrow, and then soon it will be time to get the custom license plate..any guess on what we are going to get?

I hope the title of your blog refers to the CAR only, and not your husbands....um...toes.

You look TOO cute in your car and I hope you have a blast driving around looking so hot!

Aren't seat warmers the best! I am so spoiled by them that I will have to have them on any future vehicle(Lexus)that I get...especially cozy during our chilly Humboldt County winters....brrr. Ya know, it's just the little things in life:)
