It Doesn't Come With Rainbows

Updated below...

We busily cleaned out our garage last weekend, kinda "nesting" for our new car. We weren't sure when we'd be able to get the one we want, but Monday morning we got a call about a great deal on our car- the exact one we wanted, equipped with everything we wanted as well! I am officially no longer a Minivan Mom! Please don't hate! ; )

We only allow ourselves to have one car payment and Hubby's car is paid off next month. We got an amazing too-good-to-be-true (but it was true) deal on this car. Blessed. Yes.

If you've seen the commercials, then you'll understand why Noah asked if ours came with a rainbow, too.


Ok, since you all want to see it... here's a picture. We LOVE it! It has been so fun driving it around this weekend! We can't wait for our trip to Colorado in June!

  2. Hooray for new cars! Someday we will be a two car family again. I'll be interested to see how you like your Kia.

  3. NICE! Oh but you know there's a rainbow in your heart! We do the only one car payment at a time too.
    Yeah for you, girl!

  4. Oh, I can't tell my husband - he would be so jealous! Please let us know how you like it. We are torn between replacing my '95 car with a rondo or a hybrid (we can't get 4 kids in a hybrid but we hate to give up the gas mileage of my civic). Our other car/van is a Kia Sedona (our second) and we LOVE it.

  5. So nice! I had never heard of this model of Kia! So roomy! Excellent choice! We are the same, only one car payment... poor hubby has the beater and I have the nice mom car.

  7. We do one payment at a time too, the only way we can do it!

    What color did you get? Enjoy your new car.

    Can I just say, I like my minivan? Blush.

  8. It's so cute. Congrats. I love that new car smell. Don't you just find yourself "finding" somewhere you need to go?

  12. Love it! I have seen the commercials, and fell in love with it. Sadly, having four kids and a big crazy boxer who insists on going everywhere we go, it would never fit us all.

  14. CONGRATS!
    I however long for a minivan- 3 kids in carseats and we are now crammed into the back of a V Jetta.
    My husband loves the car but we need more space and I don't mind being stereotyped a soccer mom- there are some much sportier than before vans available now and I love sports!

  16. Very cute car! I bet it is fun to drive. We are in the market and are praying God will send us a great deal too good to be true - but true!

  17. This has nothing to do with cars, but I have a question for you...

    I bought a sling at Babiesrus - it was for my 5th baby before I have used a snugli, a bijorn and a mei tai. I bought it cuz I was going to the mall with my sister with no stroller and we happened to be there and it was only 20.00. What I can't figure out is how to use it comfortably. I look at your pictures and the baby is up by your chest. Mine adjusted all the way up still has the baby more at about my stomach. I can't stand the feeling of this heavy load hanging around my neck so I haven't used it. I've actually been happy with my mei tai with this baby, but I wonder about that sling. Is it because it was a dumb design from Babiesrus or am I just not smart enough to use it???

    Just curious if you had any insight into this. I know you don't know what sling I bought but I thought maybe you'd tried a few and might know what could be going wrong.

    Thanks!
