Preparing for Summer

So....I just went shopping. I think I really needed to. I haven't really gone clothes shopping since Tyler and I got married (9 months ago) and I don't really have summery things I can wear. I keep buying things for Tyler because, let's face it, guys are way more fun to shop for because everything fits them. Well, I went out looking mainly for shorts...and, I found some! I got two pairs of shorts, two pairs of flip flops, a pair of white tennis shoes, a pink shirt (for $.97!!), three Down East undershirt things, and a cute white button up cardigan all for under $95! I'd say that was quite the find if you ask me. I never knew Old Navy had such great deals. It's a "hidden secret", as Jalene says. And Lindsay, yes, there truly is nothing better than a new pair of white tennis shoes :) Well, that's all. I just had to rant here for a bit cuz I don't think Tyler will get as excited over this kind of stuff so I have to share my excitement somewhere.

Owww Oww!

Check out my handsome hunk of a husband! There's nothing more attractive to me than my husband working hard at something I don't know how to do. He's been so excited to work on this table and he's been talking about it for months. Now that we're in our new place we actually have room to work on it and he's so ecstatic to do it. I personally think that's great since I wouldn't enjoy all the dust and slivers that come along with sanding it.

Our New Addition

Woohoo! We got a new car! and I love it! Our car search started early Saturday morning. Throughout the day we traveled to Orem, Taylorsville, Salt Lake, Draper, Bountiful, Centerville, back to Draper, then back to Salt Lake, back to Bountiful, then back to Salt Lake again.

We looked at a few Proteges (I still love Tyler's blue car he had when we first started dating), a Jetta, a Camry (which we were close to buying but I'm glad we passed it by), and our last find was this Jeep. We had pin-pointed it on KSL a few days ago and tried to call the owner a few times during the day. When we finally saw it and test drove it we were stoked and decided to get it!

We then had an adventure trying to get the cash for it since we weren't smart enough to withdraw the money before my bank closed. So several transactions later we had the cash but by then the owner of the Jeep had taken off to the Eagle's concert. So we went back later that night to Salt Lake to complete the transaction. They got back later than planned and we actually ended up buying the Jeep two minutes after midnight. What a long, draining day! But it was worth it.

We love our new Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's very powerful and clean and so fun to drive. It's going to be great in the snow and I hope it will be a lot more reliable than our little truck has been for us. I'm usually not a real big fan of red, especially bright red, but I think it's fitting for this Jeep. We have yet to name this car, so if you have any good ideas pass them along!
