Nate and I finally got a car this weekend! We have been a one car family for a little over a month, which hasn't been too bad, but it was time to finally make a purchase. We almost purchased the 2007 Infiniti Sedan, but wanted to test drive an Acura first, and of course, we loved the Acura as well. It was a tough decision, especially for me! But we figured the Acura's price was a lot more appealing to both of us.

So, we are proud owners of a 2004 Acura TL. It's fully loaded with navigation, leather, sunroof, 6 CD changer and most important - it's a 4-door vehicle! The car has a lot of hands-free tools, we can ask the car to change the temperature, fan levels, radio station and we can call someone through the car and talk to them without touching our cell phones (which will be really nice with kids in the back seat). And when I have an incoming call, the car will let me know who it is and ask if I would like to answer the call. It will take some getting used to, but it's a nice feature.

For those of you that know me well, you know that I name my vehicles (I know, I'm a dork). I have had Max the Mazda, Halle the Hyundai and Hannah the Honda. My mom has had Sabrina the Subaru and now has Lucy the Lexus. I need help naming my new car and yes, it needs to start with and A. So, let me know if you have any ideas! Maybe I'll be more successful in naming our car than our baby. :)

Abia Acura?

Just a thought!

Or Alexis Acura?

Isn't it a great feeling to get a new car that is fully loaded! ??? I just got my own suv that is fully loaded and I just can't believe I did without certain things, you know?

Congratulations on the new car! Wish I could throw a few coins in your back seat for good luck!
