Just dropping in to tell you that WE BOUGHT A CAR!!!!
Its a long, dramatic story... but the first car we test drove, got financing for, and even had the loan for fell through at the very last second. (This ended up being a very GOOD thing) SO we went car shopping out of desperation on Saturday and were about to give up on finding a used SUV in our budget with decently low mileage and in great condition until we met our lovely Ford Edge. She was perfect and it was love at first drive. So after 4 hours, we took her home and are happy to call her the newest member of the family. It feels so nice to have one BIG thing checked off our list. She is the perfect size for our little family :)
Next up... searching for rental homes!
