My New Car…

I ended up getting a 2007 Toyota Yaris Sedan in "Nautical Blue". I love that deep metallic blue. I bought it from Adam, the cutest 20-something car salesman in the world, and a decent guy too. I wouldn't hesitate to refer someone to him. He stopped by work yesterday to drop off the remote entry key (the detail guy took it by mistake the night I picked up the car). My young co-workers were drooling. I have a feeling there are going to be a couple of 20-something girls up at the dealership kicking tires. When I was looking at the car and test driving, my son thought he was flirting with me but I told him, "No dear, Adam's just trying to sell me a car and he's doing a really good job." Just in case anyone thinks I've gone off my nut… I did research the car guides etc. before making a final choice, a slave to my hormones…possibly… but I'm not completely insane. The insurance gave me a hefty down payment but with 5 years of car payments to look forward to… it's going to be a damn good car.

you are too kind. Em, the girl I work with cracked me up. She said, "Oh My God! Distracting much? No wonder you bought a new car!" I don't think he was even out the front door so… she's a lot closer in age, not to mention drop dead gorgeous herself but it was still pretty funny.

Hah. Aren't they all really just trying to sell you a car? Generally a lemon...

Congratulations on the new wheels! Nice looking car. Our cars are both older than our kids. Maybe someday...

Nice wheels! I just bought a Toyota and I love it. You may just get more 20 year olds flirting with you with that hot new car!

There is a part of me that wants to believe I am a totally, rockin' hot, Yummy Mummy… but then good ol' reality kicks in… damn that reality!

Oh, I'm so glad that you're getting a new car. I love the name of the color.
