The newest member of our family...

We said good-bye to the Volvo a couple of weeks ago.  It was a great car and we made a lot of great memories with it, but it was time to let it go.  Time to invest in something that wasn't going to require $3,000+ in repairs in the next few months (honestly... we did the calculations and the Volvo was probably going to need $3,000-4,000 worth of repairs, and knowing our luck, it probably would have all happened at once).  

Fair well good and faithful friend... 

... Say hello to the newest member of our family... 
We got a 2008 Toyota Yaris and absolutely love it so far!  And I am LOVING the gas mileage I'm getting with it.  Just to give you an idea, I only got about 25-27 mpg on the highway with the Volvo and the Yaris is already getting about 50-53 mpg.  Let's just say that I will now be seeing the benefits of that raise I got at work a few months ago.  It will finally be going back into my bank account rather than into my gas tank :)
