Monday Mayhem - sweet ride


THANK YOU!!!



to everyone who helped in donating for Free Giveaway Friday's to come! You all are so very generous and helpful, and I look forward to sharing some very special and talented ladies in the weeks to come!


We had a wonderful weekend. We made an exciting new purchase:
(this picture is not our actual car...its from google, but its the exact same thing...)




Isn't she beautiful? its an '05 Nissan Murano!! It was time for our '94 honda to be put to rest, and with our new home on a 90 degree angle driveway, we needed something with AWD and plenty of space in the back. So she was the perfect fit!





My favorite feature on this car is the keyless entry. Now, its not just a key fob entry...you do have to have one, but its not what you're thinking. there's a button on the handle you can just walk up to and push and the doors will unlock, as long as you have the fob within a foot or two. so i can just leave all my keys in my purse and not have to dig them out to get into the car. or start it either :) there's a knob you turn to start this bad boy up without having to pull out the keys and stick it in the ignition. I'm pretty sure a woman came up with this concept!





We also went to The Something Blue Shoppe. It's a bridal store in a small town in Alabama where my sister and I got our wedding gowns, and since our youngest sister just recently got engaged, we all went back to help her pick out a gorgeous dress!! I wish i could show you what she chose, as it is so beautiful, but I'm pretty sure that's a cardinal rule of weddings not to post the bride's dress on the world wide web :)

Very sweet ride! If you're ever in Crazyville, swing by and pick me up. We'll go for a spin in your new wheels and chat over Starbucks.;)

True! Posting of Kendall's most fabulous gown... will be allowed on Dec. 13th... :D

Your new car is AWESOME! Praise the Lord for His timing and He was true to you! Even when you were sad that you would have to turn in the other one...you decided to not worry and trust in your Lord that He had everything under control and there would be something better...and THERE WAS! Plus, that you and Zack were there in Hartselle for Kendall was an extraordinary blessing to her and to dad and I. Oh, how I praise Him for He is faithful and trustworthy in ALL that He does! Love you and am soooo happy for you! Love, mom oxoxoxox p.s see you Saturday...again! YEA!

love your car! I got an '05 murano about a month ago .. Except, mine has the regular 'ol keyless entry not the fancy fob, bummer :) lol ... mine doesn't have a luggage rack either. I absolutely love it though!

Since you can't post some of your sister's wedding dress pics, how 'bout some of yours?? :)

Karen said...

What a fun new car!! I love it. So did you grow up in Alabama? If you did, will you e-mail me? We are considering a move there and I have some questions. Thanks.
