We got a car!

After we sold my Honda CR-V, and I mean immediately after, our only other car, a Ford Explorer, quit on us. (By the way, anyone want a giant SUV with no transmission? No? Really??). I did so much research my brain started to melt, but I found this little beauty at a local dealership:

It’s a 2004 Honda Element, and it’s orange! Look at those epic doors!!

I know she’s beautiful. Don’t be jelly! Doesn’t that picture look like it’s from a car catalog??

So far, I freaking love this thing. She doesn’t have a name yet, so we’re calling her Elephent the Element. See what I did there? Oh, I am endlessly entertaining. It’s so huge on the inside, I’m tempted to pull a heist! But I won’t. Probably.

We really want another car, but just don’t want the extra payment. s’all good tho, been checking out the Fit, Trina think’s it’s cute so we’ll see. thx for the advice and congratz on the car.

      Thanks! We were basically making a $400 per month repair payment on the CR-V, so it was time for it to go.
