Vrooom Goes the Prippy

So, it's been a BUSY few weeks for me with starting the new gig, Snowapalooza, redecorating, and... oh yeah... buying a car to get to the new gig!

Now, I'm a little embarrassed to say that this was the first car I truly ever bought. Lucky me always had hand-me-downs (thanks, Mom!), or took public transportation because I've lived in the heart of the city.

But my job now has a commute... a short one... but one that couldn't be done in under 3 hours without a car.

After much debate, I picked up a pre-owned BMW X3. It's a navy with tan interior dream boat! This purchase was beyond stressful (thanks, car dealers!), but all worth it in the end.

Need a lift?

Never ask that if you don't mean it! Congratulations. Still don't have a driver's license & I never will now. (Though I can drive if it's an emergency.) Good weekend.

Congratulations on your first car! That's so exciting. New cars are always fun. And I hear you on the car dealerships-- they're the absolute worst! Glad you survived.

Thanks for the love! Buying a car was simply unnerving, and it didn't help that the blizzard conditions made test driving "extreme!"

I finally got to hit the open road this weekend and went antiquing with a friend who has a vintage home goods store... it was heavenly!
