Santa Came Early!


Apparently I escaped the naughty list this year because Santa came early and brought me a new Volkswagen Jetta! We picked her up Tuesday and I've been zipping around town with the sunroof down ever since! I just love it!

I will say, purchasing a new car was bittersweet. I actually kinda enjoyed the whole "one car family" thing the past couple months. Not only did I get to spend more time with the hubs in the morning, I also got dropped off right outside my office building, saving me from walking to and from the parking lot a few blocks away {very helpful when running late}. 

With hectic work schedules, we learned that our hours are very different which can be a little frustrating when it's 5:30 pm and I am ready to get home but he wants to stay much later. However, we have decided to continue to carpool on days I stay late for events.

You may recall the post I wrote a few months ago about my car history {here} when we purchased a new car for Matt. So you can imagine my excitement when my new car came with upgrades such as heated seats, sunroof, touch screen, fancy key etc. Now I can't believe I ever lived without these amenities! Even at 73 degrees in Charlotte, I can't help but use my seat warmers - because they are awesome.
 I am still not sure what to name her. Any ideas?
 And yes, I have a personalized license plate that I will never part with no matter how old I get. If you are wondering why there is a “4”included, it was the number of championships Florida won while I was there {2 basketball + 2 football}. Go Gators.
Santa also told me that since I got a car, a vacation and a house this year, I am maxed out on gifts until 2017. I did negotiate a stocking though.

  18. Your post is so adorable and funny! CONGRATS!!!! Love that you name your cars--I still have to name mine and she's 6 months old! (Thank God she isn't a real child, lol)Love the monogrammed keychain. Hmm, what else? Oh yes, Santa will not be bringing gifts to me either after the car purchase and a surprise new tv for the bedroom when I was away with my mom on a spa weekend. :)

    Aren't seat warmers the best??? :)

    Have a lovely weekend, friend!

  22. Oooh, your Jetta is so gorgeous! Have you named her already? I'm pretty sure you can't thank Santa enough with this early and very pretty gift. Have you gone to a road trip with your new ride? That would be so much fun! =)

  25. It really pays to be a good girl! Santa must have been very proud of you that’s why he gave you such an expensive gift! Now, I’m inspired to be a good girl this year.
