Hey, did you hear I got a new car? ;-) (please don't get sick of me...I'm just excited!) :-)
We upgraded this weekend to a 2015 Toyota Highlander & I am SO happy! We've had an Expedition for the past 10+ years & it was really just more car than we needed now...and it was starting to fall apart, so... We originally got an Expedition because we had a big ole dog and needed to tote him around, along with the 3 kids. But with Bec driving now, the times that we're all 5 together are pretty few & far between.
Meet Silvermist! Yes, we name our cars!
The things I knew for sure I wanted were 2nd row Captain's chairs, a DVD player, a 3rd row & Navigation system. A few pluses we also got are leather, a sun/moon roof, sun shades on the back doors, backup camera, and seat warmers in the front seat. Some of these things were standard & may be old news to some of yall, but I didn't have most of those things before so I'm happy! I think Bo's favorite feature is something called Speak Easy. The kids can speak at their normal tone from the back of the car, or we can talk from the front & our voices go thru the speakers...so no more yelling back & forth! (that's the plan anyway!)
Star Toyota did us right & found us what we asked for! Actually, Bo did most of the legwork over the phone with our sales person, so that made the process much easier (for me)! :-) We were able to take Izzy to cheer, trade our Expedition (Snow White) in at a different location, sign all the paperwork at Star, do the financing stuff & drive off the lot in just enough time to pick up Izzy 2 hours later!
Now to keep this one clean... :-)
