Our Baby!!!!!

This weekend was so wonderfully eventful. Friday was Pioneer Day AND our two year anniversary. Yippee! Our lil town of Mapleton had their own parade (not that impressive, but definitely full of community pride). Following the parade: tons of live entertainment, food, and games at the city park. We also toured two old pioneer homes, turned into museums, that sit on the park property. One was a tiny log cabin made in the 1800s! I just love that kind of stuff! Soooo interesting - especially the recreated school room! We ate lunch and COTTON CANDY at the park while listening to a pretty good loop pedal artist. (Scott's dying for a loop pedal now.)That afternoon, we escaped the heat with a trip to the movie theater. FINALLY we saw Harry Potter. Good movie, I thought. By the time that was over, we just had just enough time to grab some chinese take out and head to the park for FIREWORKS. Yes, it did rain on us. But yes, the fireworks were worth it. What a wonderful ending to our special day. I gotta shout out to Scott: I sure love you babe. Thanks for an amazing 2 years.

For the past month we have been searching everywhere for the right car. Oh. My. Goodness. I hate car shopping with a passion. By Saturday we had narrowed it down to two cars. When we went to SLC to check out this Honda, I knew it was love at first sight. We got a dang stinking good deal on this baby. It's a 2004 with a little more miles than it should have, but everything else is in perfect condition. The guy we bought it from was so nice. He is from India and him and his wife just quit their jobs, sold everything and are going on an adventure back to India. (Can I please do something like that?!) Anyway, Scott and I are so relieved to be done with the search, and we couldn't have done it without good friends.

Geez, I just have to give a shout out to these good people. We have a couple different friends in SLC that Scott met while doing that 48 hour film festival. One of them was a car saleman and mechanic for 7 years. He came and checked out the Honda to make sure it was in excellent condition and he helped us haggle the price down. (As a side note, we couldn't get a hold of him that morning but found out he lived just down the street from the guy selling the car, so we went right to his house and found him. Coincidence? I don't think so.) Anyway, our other friend lent us a good chunk of the cash needed to pay for it on the spot. We just made it to the bank in time to get the cash too. (Someone else was going to buy the car on Monday, once they got their loan, so we had to act fast.) Now I have the fun task of getting the loan, insurance, registration, and all that jazz. Not complaining though - so worth it, because at long last, here she is...
Pin It!

She's just like mine...but darker! Mine's a silver grey and automatic...but otherwise...the exact same car! Excellent choice! Mine has been the best! So glad the search is over and you have a good car! Now drive that sucker to Colorado and come play with me!
