Twenty-nine years old today...

Woohoo. I am not too excited, but next year will be a big one. This also means Andrew is 22 months old. I can't believe that in just two short months, he will be two. Yet, he is growing up so much--he says so many words now, and can comprehend a lot. I love it.

In other news, DH brought up the "v" word the other day, which in this case stands for "van". (The other "v" word will be happening after this baby is born, which is cool with both of us--thank goodness). He wants to look for a minivan for our second vehicle. Right now we have a 2007 Ford Focus (and we love it), and our second car is a 1997 Nissan Sentra. My brother is looking for a new car, and the Nissan doesn't do DH a lot of good as far as hauling goes (gardeners haul amazing amounts of dirt and wood chips back to the property, especially when it's free at our landfill site). So my brother can buy the Nissan and we'll get rid of it for $1,500. It's in good shape, has new tires, a completely new exhaust that was just put on a couple months ago, and has been a great runner.

Anyway, DH's logic is that a van will function both to haul things and to haul around two kiddos. :) I am actually excited. We are not looking for a new one, but a used one, and he read reviews in the past so he knows which models he'd want and which ones he wouldn't.

happy birthday to you!!!!! hope it is a great one!

I have an itsy bitsy Ford escort, 2 door of course. I can lay the back seats down, and you should see all the plants I cam haul in my itsy bitsy car! LOL. But when it comes to mulch, compost, soil.... I take the hubbies truck. DH is terrified of me having a bigger car/van because I would be bring home more plants!

Happy Birthday!

The van sounds like a good idea! We wanted to get a bigger vehicle but just can't afford it right now. Thankfully we can still FIT in our current vehicle so we'll just have to stick it out!

Happy Birthday!! :)

We're feeling smooshed in our Olds Alero, but it runs well and we technically fit in it- plus we're buying a house- so we can't bring ourselves to buy a new car right now. When we do, though, it's likely going to be a (used) crossover, like the Ford Edge.
