Movin' On, Movin' Up

From the blog title did you think I was going to say that I am moving again?

Let's be honest and say that I have not lived in one residence for longer than a year since, lets say 2001... I am crazy... And I hate moving, so I will not be doing that for quite a while.

BUT, I did get a NEW CAR!!!

We bought our Explorer in 2010 the day before we moved from Washington to Saint George. Basically we needed a car that could pull the Uhaul.

Diego was the name. He was a great car, and I loved him. That is until I moved back to San Diego and gas was over $4 a gallon. No thank you to paying $80 a week in gas. I had been trying to sell him for a while, and thanks to my awesome dad we finally got that guy out of here!

I work about 18 miles away in Tempe, so driving at least 40 miles a day gets expensive. My baby sistie let me drive her car for a while until I got a new guy, and I was so greatful to save some money. But then the weather started getting cold and Kailey was not trying to drive her scooter in the winter (she lives in St.George) so she wanted that car back... rude. So I started looking for a new car.

I pretty much decided to get a combination of reliable, stylish, and sensible. I did a lot of research so I would know exactly what I wanted.

I went ALL BY MYSELF to brave the car salesman word of car dealerships. It was super intimidating, but I am proud of myself for getting a great deal!

I ended up with a 2013 Toyota Corolla S!!!

Introducing COOL WHIP... aka "The Whip"

I love that it is brand new and I don't have to worry about things going wrong with her for quite some time. Also, my fave Uncle is a Toyota mechanic, so I am basically set in that department. She gets about 34 miles to the gallon and supposed to get 40 MPG highway. I love her. Best decision I have made.

Come visit me so you can ride in the WHIP!!
