New Car!

On Friday my husband and I were talking about things we could do to get our bills down. We were talking about trading in my 2008 Ford Edge to get something cheaper. On Mother’s Day we went to the local Hyundai dealership as they were having an inventory close out. Hubby told me to pick what car I wanted (yeah he won the Husband of the month award). We ended up lowering our monthly payment by $140 and I got a brand new 2011 Hyundai Sonata with only 19 miles on it 🙂 It’s pearl white…it has glitter in the paint! It’s also a 6 speed manual. I used to drive a 5 speed before my last car and I missed it so much, but the 6 speed is different and I have to get used to it…but it’s so fun!
