The post about geting a van

First off has anyone talked to Hollee? I know she was revised to the sleeve last week and I talked to her after surgery and the next day or two, but now she seems to be off the grid.

I've been in denial for months about trading in my beloved Ford Fusion (beloved, mostly because she was paid for and I LOVE not having a car payment.) I've been telling myself that I could fit all three car seats and the dogs in that car. The logistics of it weren't really in my favor, but I figured where there is a will, there is a way.

Not so in this case. They just don't fit. The car seats, not even including the dogs. Bust seriously, who can leave home without having room to take their dogs if it is a dog appropriate trip. Which is almost anywhere, in my opinion.

So, I told my husband that we should just go ahead and get a van. I need something with good MPG but my heart just wasn't in it. You know? I think that is why it took me so long to finally just bite the bullet.

This was my alternative to a van....

not my car, just an example from the internet.
Not too shabby, in my opinion. I know it is a little unique, and not everyone's taste, but I have been in love with them since they first came out. They seat 7 and get 17-23 MPG. Basically a van without having to go there. Thank the heavens.
Now we are a car payment poorer, but at least I won't be stuck at home unable to leave when this baby gets here in 6 weeks. Can't be sad about that.
Haven't gained any weight in the last month and I am so grateful for that. No other band related news. Just chillin here in Gods Country!
How are you ladies doing?


  1. I love those...the Flex, right? It was just bigger than what I need or I would have gotten one. Awesome! (I hope Hollee is okay...)

  2. I have been wondering about Hollie myself...I really hope she is okay. I'm glad you talked to her after surgery...was she in pain? How did it go? Really was concerned about her...Cute car :)

  3. I saw Hollie over on Instagram and FB - She looks good! - Sweet new wheels! And damn right - Gods Country!!! I'm going through Utah withdrawl big time!!!

  4. Love the new car! Sowwie I disappeared, I've been lazy!

  5. Holy Smokes! I just re-read this. 6 weeks?! Really?! Ah yes! Time flies!
