Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

The One Where We Bought a Car & Celebrated a Birthday (And a Look Ahead)

Last weekend was a bit of a whirlwind, and this weekend was much of the same.

As you can seem from the title, not only did we celebrate a birthday, we also bought a car!

Real life.

Where do I even begin?

Let’s start with now I had to go to Coldstone Friday night to pick up the birthday cake Will wanted.

Real life.

Happy birthday Will

Have you guys been in there lately? The smell one is enough to pack on five pounds.

I was insanely close to getting a cup of something horribly delicious, you know, to tide me over before eating the 40,000 calorie cake, but refrained.

Saturday came really early. Will had to work a few hours, so I hit the gym and did a leg circuit followed by a trip to the store.

Afterward, I met these little ladies for some iced tea/coffee.

Farmers market fun

We even made a trip to a farmers market and the library.

Very productive morning!

Are you able to see this video I posted below? It hope you can because it’s kind of funny. 

After my morning with the girls, I quickly got around and was off to run a couple errands with Will.

After that, we made a planned stop at a local Honda dealership.

Yep, the B-Love family went car shopping.

The newest (and I use that word loosely) car we own is a 2001 truck.

Real life.

God has had his hand over our cars, that’s for sure.

We knew it was quickly approaching time to begin “upgrading the fleet,” so when we saw Honda was having a super great summer sale, we felt it was a good time to make a move.

Will and I prayed about it all week and asked for godly wisdom.  I love my 1998 Accord, but it was definitely time to retire it to shorter trips.

Soooo we spent the better part of three and a half hours Saturday doing just that!

Oh, and can we please talk about how much cars have changed since 1998!?

My car starts, with a real life key, and drives.

I feel like you darn near need a pilot’s license to operate new cars!

All the buttons.

All the screens.

All the cameras.

All the voice activated stuff.

What!?

Anyway…

Have you guys bought a car recently?

I had no idea how intense it was. Haha

All the back and forth and, “Let me see what we can do...”

It was enough to drive me crazy. Let’s just cut to the chase!

Thankfully Will was on his game and ready to go. I’m am so thankful for his help with this stuff.

After all the waiting, and back and forth, and wheeling and dealing, we had ourselves a car!

Well, sort of.

The one we wanted wasn’t at their dealership, so they’re going to have to bring it in this week.

Here’s the one we test drove.
The one we rest drove and similar to what we bought!

The one we rest drove and similar to what we bought!

It’s the same as what I’m getting minus some add-ons.

We are also adding the sports package, so they’ll have to put that on, too. It should be ready before Friday. Woo hoo!

Believe it or not, Will is upgrading and getting the old ‘98 Honda as his daily drive. His truck, while seriously cared for, is old. It has paint fading like crazy, and in need of retirement.

So yeah, definitely some big news in the B-Love house. We bought our first new car. smile

That took up much of Saturday, and we were spent after it was over. We stopped by my parent’s house and chatted about our news, so that was fun.

Because of the time, we decided to go to church Sunday instead of Saturday. We got comfy and took it easy.

But....

Later that evening I had to pick up a delivery.

Half a bushel of the freshest, most delicious peaches you ever did see! 🍑
Just peachy

True story.

Someone from work ordered heaps from a nearby farm, so my mom and I decided to split half a bushel.

Oh.my.goodness.

I’m dead.

In peach coma.

They’re so so good.

I can’t even take it.

I thought there would be too many to use up. Yeah, so not happening.

We ended Saturday night on the couch, in peach coma, watching an X-Men movie.

Sunday we celebrated Will’s 34th birthday!

It’s crazy to think I met him when he was such a baby-22!

We took it super easy yesterday, which was nice.

I got up early and worked out, and then we went to breakfast.

Yesterday was definitely not my best eating day, but hey, it was celebratory, so that’s okay. smile

After breakfast was church, a nap, birthday cake, and prepping for the week ahead.

This weekend was wonderful in a lot of ways. It was nice to get a new car after so long, and also spend Will’s birthday having him totally to myself and enjoying the day.

Another weekend closes, and another long week begins. Thankfully this is my short week, and I have a new car to pick up later this week!

Let’s take a look at what’s coming up this week:

-Roasted Carrots
-Why you might be selling yourself short
-Thursday Things
-Laser focus

Check in this week for more fun. Now let’s tackle Monday!
