Good-bye BLACK BEAUTY..Hello DIESEL

Good-Bye Black Beauty (yes, I sold my 2002 LEXUS IS 300)...

...and HELLo MINI-VAN (you heard it right, we bought a 2011 Toyota Sienna MINI-VAN!!!)
It LITERALLY has taken me 2-3 years to get to this point. Ask anyone who knew me well enough that I had sworn an oath to myself that I would NEVER own a mini-van! Well here we are, Saturday I sold my car and bought a new car, so within 5 hours I went from Lexus mom to Mini-Van mom! Keep laughing...

Well a few months ago I had to watch my nieces and nephews (& my own kids) so I borrowed my sis-in-laws mini-van and it really started to win me over. It was SO convenient, spacious, and nice. I still swore I wouldn't do it. But after months and YEARS really looking at trucks, SUV's, crossovers, everything was lacking something that the mini-van had (space, seats, cargo/camping room, comfort, features). So besides (what some may say, is the lack of style) all fingers pointed to the mini-van. We decided, we divided and we conquered!

And to tell you the truth I LOVE IT! And I still feel pretty dang cool in it as well. So I am gonna ROCK MY MINI-VAN!

Shout out for the MINI-VAN!

PS. We asked the kids what we should name the new car and immediately Ella yelled out DIESEL, so it stuck. And with all our automatic opening doors, sliding & removable seats, we thought it was pretty appropriate for the TRANSFORMER mini-van name!
