Sweeeeet New Ride!
We have been looking at this car for a LONG time! We go through cars "like water", according to my sister Khristie, and she's right, but this is the one we've wanted for more than 2 years. I always thought we were too young for a "real" car and then we bought a minivan.... I LOVED the minivan, but when I found out the full size diesel Ford trucks got the SAME gas mileage.... I was SAD! Since then we decided the next car was to be a white, Ford Excursion, Diesel, '00-'03 nothing never for engine make and pricing reasons. Talk about being specific, but hey, we knew exactly what we wanted.
We found this on cars.com last week, exactly in our price range. It was in Henderson, NV (2 hours away) so we thought we'd go check it out and visit Justin's buddy Zack who lives in Vegas. With this planning, if we didn't get the deal we wanted it wouldn't be a wasted trip. At one point we had to quote Justin's dad, "look, you've got to give me an offer I can't refuse... I can refuse that one." Long story short we got EVERYTHING we wanted!!! And more!
We got to visit Zack for just a few hours and had fun walking through the Venetian! He works at its indoor mall at The Walking Company. I'm a big fan of such stores as my faovrite shoes for church are Dansko's. Anyway it was a fun trip, the kids were awesome and "we are still so excited" about our sweet new ride!
Okay I had to add this picture. NO we did not buy these shoes. He tried them on as a joke and then as I saw them on I thought they looked good.
