Swagger Wagon

Actual purchase date: May 18, 2010
Yes, it's true.  I am the proud new owner of a full on Mini Van.  I wasn't cool enough to have scored one of THESE, but mine is still pretty slick!  It's a 2006 Honda Odyssey, dark blue, automatic everything, sun roof, heated seats, yada, yada.

After almost TEN years of owning the same car,
we finally had to make a switch to better accommodate all these munchkins we are having.  I must admit that it is really nice and very handy to have.  It's much easier to get kids in and out of the car, and I love the automatic doors.  I like that we can carpool comfortably and that I have more room in the trunk area for grocery shopping and other purchases.

It's been a bit of a transition for me, but it's good.  I am now officially a mom.  This car has literally sealed the deal.  No going back now {as if the children haven't already determined that}.

It isn't every day you get a new ride.

Oh So much more spacious I'm sure.
I'm actually so so so excited for the day we get our upgrade. Which i'm sure will be to a van.

I cried for the first week of owning our minivan but once I got over the whole stigma thing, I have loved it. It is so perfect for this stage in life!

I am completely over the stigma of mini vans and am dying to get one. I am forcing myself to wait until child #3 is on the way though... gotta have something to look forward to!!!
