A Mini-Van Family...

Over the past two weeks, Adam and I had really set aside time to figure out what kind of vehicle we want and need. So, after lots of consideration, we headed to the Nissan dealership to buy a new Nissan Murano. I have wanted one since they first came out! But much to my dismay, they don't hold crap! I took all of my photo gear, the stroller, and some other things that I have to haul with me when we go to a photo shoot or shopping, etc, and there just wasn't enough room. So, we debated some more and went home to think about whether this car was going to be practical for us. As much as I didn't want to admit we were ready for a minivan at 25 years old, it was inevitable! I HAD to have the space, and I didn't want a big ol' honkin' SUV. So we decided on (the one I ORIGINALLY WANTED) a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country LX with Stow N Go. Surprisingly, I LOVE IT! The best part, all of my advertising will go on the back, along with my images on the sides, and it's the same color as my branding, which is perfect! Today, I took Jackson and all the gear to the grocery store, and I FIT ALL OF IT IN THERE! And Jackson loves the fact that he can look out!! Yeah! So it's official: we are minivan people! Uhhh...oh well!

So that was yesterday when we got the van, and when I pulling into my drive-way, this is what I found! YARD OF THE MONTH!!





Ever since Adam and I moved in, it's been our goal to get YARD OF THE MONTH at least ONCE while we live here. I am so particular about my yard and the grass being mowed a certain way, and we have done SO MUCH to the landscaping (it was atrocious when we moved in--all overgrown tropical crap) that it's nice that someone has notice the change! I called Adam right away and told him " this is so much better than getting the new van!" Go figure!

Adam doesn't know which is worse--getting yard of the month and a minivan at 25 years old, or being excited about yard of the month and getting a minivan at 25 years old!! Ha!
