We have a new edition to the family.

Last week I got into a little car accident. It really was a little "the road was wet and I ran into the back of someone" kind of accident. It was my fault "technically" but the lady stopped so suddenly that I just slid right into her. Her car was fine, mine on the other hand was not so fine. The insurance company actually totalled our little Kia Spectra. That was sort of devastating news because my car was the reliable one. Nick's Rio has been on it's last leg for about the last year so hopefully it can just hang on for a bit more. We talked it over and decided we really needed a nice car that would go the distance so we decided to buy a new car! We bought a 2009 Toyota Corolla and I just LOVE it! It rides so smoot and smells so clean! It makes driving seem like a treat! So, now we need a name for the ol' girl......

I had a corolla once upon a time...it was the craziest car of my life. If you've ever seen Tommy Boy and remember the hood flying up scene...yup that happened to me.

Our Corolla is Petunia and she's so happy to have a cousin! Corollas are THE BEST when it comes to dependability. We call Petunia our Work Horse. 8 years and going strong!
