We all need some mode of transport. Since I cannot own a Sandspeeder (yet) and my request for a Millennium Falcon is on backorder(shhh), I have to go with a normal automobile. Yes - I said automobile.....
As a mom of two and a then family of four, the logical - the societal norm was to rock a mini van. Well, that's what we did. So we(ahem..I) did a search for mini vans all just a few mere months before my second child was born. I admit it...the sliding doors, dvd, double moon roof, seat heaters, satellite radio, navi, and bluetooth was all very alluring. But truth be told, I decided on the Toyota Sienna because it has the most "bacon-y" full swag you tube commercial out there....BEHOLD- the reason behind my mini-van purchase. Correction - not just a mini van..it was the SWAGGER WAGON!
Ah, yes...marketers love me. I will fall for a slick advertisement anytime(recall the Mickey Mouse talking phone from earlier posts?). But yes, that is why I bought a mini van...this ad sold me some bacon...some full fat...swaggy....delicious...family friendly bacon! I wanted to be that slick in my Swagger Wagon!
Well...here we are now 2013 - almost 2014 (thank God I need a fresh start here) and I no longer need the full fat ride. I need something much leaner. Momma needs a new swaggy ride. Single Swagger Mom does not look so fly rollin' up to dinner, the bars...wherever, in a mini van...even it if it called a Swagger Wagon.
So I went to the dealer the other day and traded in my bacon for something leaner. I have now a RAV4 Limited! Its the Sizzlean of mom vehicles. I feel like I lost 50 pounds in a day and I look like a total badass!
This car is so much more me! This car is exactly what the boys and I needed! I mean come on!!!! Its practically a baby!!!! Its much cuter than the van. It gets better mileage and the payment each month is much more manageable for this mom.
Overall, I am super happy with this decision. I feel sexier, swaggier, younger and like I lost 50 pounds. I don't feel like I should be wearing "Mom-jeans" either...not that I ever did wear those. If you know me in real life you know that I would NEVER rock the "Mom- jeans". I'm a lean, mean, driving machine.
|my car - love it|
A new car.
A new kind of bacon.
A fresh start.
A new year ahead!
