LIFE, LOVE AND A SPLASH OF SOME GLAMOUR

Treated Ourselves to Something Nice....

So Brian and I treated ourselves to a nice on New Year's Day. After several winter storms already this year we bit the big one and bought an SUV. We purchased a 2011 Jeep Patriot. Great miles and even better price!



Brian and I both drive small cars, a Civic and a Cavalier. They are probably the worst cars to drive in any type of winter weather. Brian got stuck last week for over 3 hours with his Civic. Although this baby will be a gas guzzler at least have the piece of mind that one of us will be safe in bad weather. I work a mile from my parents house and in bad weather they always come to pick me up. I'm lucky and a bit spoiled. I'll be the primary driver of this baby. I can't wait to pick it up on Friday. I am a little sad to be getting rid of my Cavalier. I've had that car since I was 22. It was a college graduation present to myself. I guess I'm just sentimental.

Congrats on the new buy. I wanted a Jeep when we bought a new (used) car last year but we ended up with an Isuzu Rodeo. Maybe one day I will get something better.

Yaaayy congrats! I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and I LOVE IT!!! On New Years Eve, there weren't any spots outside my friend's house, so I pulled onto his lawn in a foot of snow. It was awesome. As soon as you get yours, you have to do something crazy with it!! haha

Once you go big you'll never go back ;). I have a Mazda CX9 and while it's not as big as a jeep, I feel so much safer in it than my old tiny Focus. We drove Upstate in the snowstorm this past weekend with no issues. My lease is up in a few months and Jeep is on my list of possibilities.
