A Hip Mommy Car

Those of you who know me well, know a few things.

(1) I married a man verging on OBSESSED with cars. You actually don't even have to know me very well to know this fact. =D

(2) I happen to not care very much about said cars. In fact, Mr. Howard picked out my last car for me and drove it over to me after work. I had never seen the inside, the color...we really hadn't even discussed that we were 100% sure we were going to get an Edge.

(3) Lots of people SAY they don't care about cars. I, in fact, care so little that when we found this one, Mr. Howard said, "Do you want me to send you a picture so you can see if you like it?" My response? "Nope. How much is it again? Great!"

(4) This, I hope, is my one flaw in my husband's eyes. **Wink, Wink**It drives him nuts that I don't get excited about cars. It drives him nuts that I don't care what they look like. It drives him nuts that he can't talk for hours on end about what he's been looking at. Really, I'm no fun to have conversations about this with because I can't even tell you what my friends drive...seriously...not even the make. I think Diana drives a Honda. I think. I could be wrong. I think Susan drives a Chevy...maybe. I know for sure that Diana has a cute sticker on hers and Susan's fits 7...or is it 8? See what I mean.

Well to get to the point...for some time now we have moving in the direction of a 7 passenger car (with Connor's carseat, we need a bit more room - especially if we are thinking about expanding our brood). So, after months of researching and looking around, we (and when I say we, I mean....my husband) have settled on and purchased this 2005 Land Rover LR3! I drove it to work today and am loving the navigation!
