End of an era.


You guys, J & I got a new {to us} car this weekend!

But that's not all.
We also said goodbye to the end of an era in my family.
Ok, I should back track.

So when we got married 3 years ago, we only had one car between the two of us. 
{Someone totaled their car in college and never replaced it...ahem.} 

It worked out though, because J was still finishing up classes and could walk to campus. I used the car to commute with my job at the time, since I had to transport clients a lot.

Long story short, we ended up having to get a new{er} car that Spring since J started his internship & needed transportation. 
And right after we bought that car, our older car literally stopped running.
So we were back to one car.

{enter my awesome parents}

They let us use my family's 1995 GMC Safari {that my mom bought brand new when I was in 3rd grade!!}.
And from there, we kind of just kept it.
Cars are expensive, and we had literally just bought one and couldn't afford yet another on one income.

Fast forward 2.5 years,
and it was finally time to trade up!

We said goodbye to my beloved family van this weekend

and hellooooo to this pretty little 2010 Mazda CX7!

Guys. I have a car with automatic locks! That I can unlock with a clicker thingy!
Oh the luxury!
