I am proud to share that we just bought my first brand new car ever! It is so exciting! While the actual shopping for the car was not fun at all, when I first saw what was to become my first new car, I knew it. Like I knew it when we found our first house or my wedding dress. It was such a great feeling!
I'm the proud owner of a brand new HONDA FIT!! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!
Here it is posing by my parents' rose bush. Anytime anything big happens - graduation, Mother's day get togethers, weddings, birthdays, engagement - we take pictures in front of this rose bush. This is the first non-human rose bush photo shoot :)
So I wasn't sure if I wanted a larger car or a smaller suv and the FIT made it so I didn't have to decide. It was perfect! There's a lot of space in the back seat and the hatchback, but with the middle seats flipped down, there's even more space for things.
Or you can flip the back seats straight up for more vertical room! Like, if I wanted to transport a tree, or anything else that's tall :) It's deceptively huge on the inside.
I can empty the groceries with the garage door closed - there wasn't space for that in my old car!
So here we are - an awesomely perfect car with the happiest car owner ever! Can you tell what my favorite color is?? Hint: check out the car, or my husband's car, or my dress, or the house, or my wedding ring if you zoom in like crazy :)
I love the FIT so much! It has a lot of space but still drives like a small car. I can zoom around downtown Ann Arbor and easily parallel park still. It's actually shorter than my old 2-door civic. Until Wednesday, I had never seen a FIT before, but now I've been noticing them everywhere!
It even has made me a better driver! I go the speed limit - or less- and am much more cautious. I even got passed on Huron River Drive twice today! Usually I'm the a-hole passing people! I hope this sticks with me!!
I've never owned/driven/purchased a new car before, so this is really exciting. I got mad at my husband for sneezing in the car yesterday. Today, I vacuumed and wiped down the interior and washed the exterior. You know, cause cars get so dirty in 3 whole days! I've never washed a car in my life; I had to purchase a sponge today!! Maybe I'll wash my car every weekend! I did this when we bought the house too; I couldn't wait to vacuum every Sunday! That wore off though, so I doubt this car washing will stick around forever!
