As I mentioned in my blog last week, I had to go car shopping this past weekend (since I didn't find anything the weekend before). After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (okay, not really), I am happy to say that I GOT MY NEW CAR!!!**happy dance** If you live in Dallas and are looking for a new or used car, comment below with your email, I want to give you the name of the dealership I went to and the saleswoman I dealt with. She was super nice!! Thank you Christine!
|My 2012 Mazda 3. Isn't it all clean and shiny? We'll see how long that lasts! :)|
My friend Laura went with me and was taking pictures as I was signing the paperwork. There was A LOT of paperwork to sign!
|In my new car, I haven't named her yet. My friend thinks I should call her Silver so whenever I drive off I can say "Hi-o-Silver- AWAY!" :)|
After driving a truck for so many years, it will take some time to get used to being lower to the ground in a car, but I like it. And I like that it gets good gas mileage! And that I can hook up my iPod to play through the stereo. And that I have a "clicker" to unlock my doors (as you can tell, I'm very "high maintenance" when it comes to what I want in a vehicle.) ;) As long as it had power locks/windows, made a dinging sound if I left the lights on, and allowed me to hook up my iPod, I was happy. :) I was very excited to finally get it. To celebrate, I drove to Sherlock's in Arlington to meet up with some friends (okay, the night out with friends was already planned, but I did drive my new car to show off). :) As always, we had a lot of fun!

|As always, I love spending time with the fabulous Chance! :)|
|Got to see my friend Robert, who I hadn't seen in ages!!|
|We were trying to dance to the music. Noticed I said "trying to". :)|
|With my girls Khrystal and Laura!|
|We went to the bar where my friend Jamie is a Karaoke DJ (he's awesome!). He even dedicated a song to me, Khrystal, and Laura. :)|
Saturday was a busy day. I had lunch with my friend Shondell at Olive Garden and then I went ice skating with some friends at a nearby mall. I can't believe I didn't get pictures of those two events, although honestly no one needs to see me trying to ice skate. I did run over a little kid who made the mistake of cutting me off and I had no way of stopping (I was doing good to not fall down myself). I felt terrible. :(
Saturday evening we took the train downtown (well, it's technically uptown) to the AAC for the Stars game! Sadly they didn't win (boo!) but we still had fun. Glad hockey is back! I was excited to see my friends Lyn and Julie, I hadn't seen them since I got back to town a few weeks ago.
|Riding the train to the AAC. It beats having to sit in traffic and pay to park (or walk many blocks for free parking).|
|Free shirt night!|
|Hockey hotties- Lyn, Julie, Monica, and me!|
|The Stars have been in Dallas 20 years- hard to believe!|
|Lyn is seriously one of my favorite peeps. She always makes me laugh!!|
I know a lot of you aren't on my Facebook page, but this status applies to you all too. Thank you so much for everything (your emails with words of encouragement mean a lot), I really appreciate y'all!
This was the scene driving in to work today. It reminded me of the Hitchcock movie, The Birds.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday!!
