two weeks with miss sophia.

Last Friday marked two weeks with Miss Sophia. It still doesn’t feel like it’s mine. Every morning when I walk out to leave for work I’m like.. Hmmm Look at that car :) hehe. I’m a dork, I know. It’s probably because I always wanted an SUV and now I’ve finally got one! It’s awesome having more space & not being so little on the highway :)

Pretty sure I couldn’t have made a better choice for a vehicle. I absolutely am in love with everything about it. Obviously I love the way it looks, she’s gorgeous & unique looking inside and out. The features of the thing are great, couldn’t possibly ask for anything else. All I needed was the iPod cable to plug in so that I can control it through the stereo controls [I can pay more attention to the road ;) ]. It doesn’t quite get the gas mileage of the civic, but that’s obviously expected, its been steadily getting 25-27 MPG. Sadly I’ve already put 1,000 miles on her :-\. Kinda feels ridiculous, but that’s what a 48 mile commute one way will do. All in all, I can give myself a big pat on the back! “Job well done!” hehe.

I even decorated her for christmas!

And she got a sweet chandelier to spruce her up!

Meet Sophia The Kia

After a lot of time and research…. It’s finally paid off. I brought sweet sophie home last night. First time car buyer! Whew! Talk about a lot of stress, just glad it is finally over. Now I no longer feel like I’m going to vomit. But I’m happy with my decision, although I probably won’t be when the first payment comes in :) I got the beautiful car I wanted. All the features I needed. And at the cheapest price I could find for that vehicle & style in 500 miles. I’m pretty proud of myself. Needless to say I’m currently a happy camper on cloud nine.
