My new MINI!

It's finally here, my MINI!  I am very proud to say for the first time in my entire life I paid cash for this beast.  No car payments she is all mine free and clear!
 I could barely contain my excitement!
 I have named her Teddy.  I know it's a guy's name and I don't care I'm naming her after my Dad.
I wanted to also say that you might not see me as much over the next few weeks.  My Dad has surgery next Friday and I really need to focus on him right now.  It's strange to be so happy and sad all at the same time, I'm a bipolar mess these days, but at least I have my MINI.

Take care peeps, I got nothing but love for ya!

I think what I meant to say as I was called away from the computer, is that this car is an original already for how cute it is BUT I am holding out on hope that maybe it is going to turn pink in the fall? It will be fun to see how this lil philly could become a floating stream of conscious art. Do we get to see attachments like glitter? Is the inside going to be like candyland? Sorry, I got pulled away and didn't get to finish!

we just paid off our car a couple of months ago and it felt awesome. I can only imagine how good it must feel to have a brand new car fully paid for!! I'm so happy for you!

Life is such a balancing act - good and bad, often in the same day. The car is adorable (too bad it wasn't pink, then it would be perfect) and kudos to you for paying $ up front! Hope your Dad's surgery, and recovery goes well.

Teddy is even more gorgeous than I imagined and that's 'cos he's got such a hot accessory - YOU!
Keeping everything crossed for your dad and arriving for his hospital appointment in such a cool ride can only speed up his recovery!

Congratulations !!

Congratulations on your new Mini! I know Teddy & you are going to have many wonderful adventures together, as my Lady Arabella & I have over the last 7 years. Best car ever - and I have driven everything possible (okay motorcycle riding on a sunny day is pretty sweet, as is a ferrarri but...) I swear I will have a Mini until the day I die. Hoping mine holds out for another two years so she can be my daughters first car, then I can upgrade. Mine was paid in full too, feels good not to have car payments on top of goodness knows all the other bills, taxes, etc we have to deal with. Much luck with her! XXX Sorry to hear about your Dad, wishing good vibes!
