That’s right kids . . . we got a BRAND NEW CAR! (You have to say it in your head just like Bob Barker every single time.)
Of course, sadly, we didn’t actually win a BRAND NEW CAR on the Price is Right. Sigh. But, we did buy one. Where you ask? Where did we get our BRAND NEW CAR? (You’re still saying it like Bob Barker, right? Good.)
Why Cleveland, duh! I mean, it’s only 3.5 hours from Buffalo, so that’s nothing! (I actually had no idea we lived that close to Cleveland . . . I’m not sure what significance that may have in the future, but still–it’s good to know that if we needed to get to Cleveland, we could. And in only 3.5 hours. Still not sure how that’s useful, but somehow it sort of feels like it is.)
I realized too late on our road trip that I should probably have taken one of these shots earlier as this is highly deceptive.
So yep–to Cleveland we drove. And then we drove right through it. So here’s a quick fly-by shot.
Eventually we arrived at the dealership (they gave us the best price by far, so it was worth the trip) and picked up our BRAND NEW CAR. We did the whole purchase via email and the phone, so thankfully we didn’t have to do any haggling. And actually, by “we” I mean the Mr. He took care of the whole thing while I was in Texas having a kitchen reno party with my sister. Isn’t he just the best?
Okay, so are you just itching to find out what our BRAND NEW CAR is? Are you on the edge of your seat? Can you really believe that we bought a BRAND NEW CAR? Can you tell that I just like saying BRAND NEW CAR (always in my best Bob Barker voice)? Alright, well here it is:
TA-DA! That’s right–our BRAND NEW CAR is a Subaru Outback. Isn’t it purty? We love it. The Mr. especially. He just can’t get enough.
We had to squeeze it into the garage the first night because the Mr. refused to let it sit in the driveway.
And yes–that might as well be an advertisement for Ganley Subaru, but we don’t mind–they were so great to deal with. If you ever find yourself in Cleveland and want to buy a BRAND NEW CAR, we recommend Sarah from Ganley Subaru.
Oh, and for those of you who are observant out there, you may have noticed that there’s quite a bit of stuff in our garage. Well, that’s because we’ve finally moved into our new home! Yep–last week, on the same day we drove to Cleveland and back with our BRAND NEW CAR, we also rented a U-Haul and moved our stuff from Moose’s warehouse to our new place. Yeah, we’re over-achievers like that.
And yes–that’s pretty much all of our stuff. What can I say? The Mr. is a minimalist and he’s been rubbing off. But more on our new home soon. There are lots of exciting things to share, so stay tuned. But I didn’t want to distract any attention away from our BRAND NEW CAR, so that’s why this post is dedicated to only that.
Anyone else have a BRAND NEW CAR? Do you also feel the need to do a Bob Barker impersonation every time you get in it? Any thoughts on our choice? I wanted a Prius, but I think the Subaru Outback, with AWD, will probably be a better choice for surviving the winters in Buffalo, and I have to say I’m super happy with it. And I’m super happy that I now have a legitimate reason for doing Bob Barker impressions.
