Mama & Minivan

So a few weeks ago we decided to trade in our Explorer & get a Minivan. Now I know I always said I would never be a minivan mama.. but when you have three kids all in car seats & a huge stroller to lug around, along with lots of stuff all the time.. well a minivan only makes sense.

Now I was nervous at first & scared that my cool hip mama image would slip away because I no longer had a cool SUV but ya know what I don't care because the convenience that comes with a minivan, makes all the scary complexes that come with it disappear. I must say now after having it a few weeks I love it. I love the gas milage & the cheaper payment as well.

Oh & yes we name our cars haha. It makes it fun. So Molly is our new ride. The girls love it. We even have a TV in it as well so that is a plus. I must say though since I am not much o f TV watcher except for a few show's I do get irritated that my four year old constantly thinks that even if we are only going 2 seconds away she should be able to watch a movie. So she will learn quickly that movies are only for long drives.. I mean like 45 min drives or longer. The one great thing is the trunk is huge, the girls can climb in & out like pros & we have captains chairs so I can get to the back a lot easier then before & there is a TON of leg room in any row you sit in. So yes I am a minivan mom, no I will not be putting some crazy wheels on it even though my hubby works for Discount Tire Co. but yes I will still be the coolest hippest mama in town who now drives a minivan. Oh & why you may ask because if you pull up next to us.. we are usually jamming out to Alicia Keys or P!NK & all four of us girls are dancing our buts off :) & the added bonus is that the minivan has a rockin system.

On another note.. for months our good friends Kyle & Jennie (who we miss terribly I might add!), have told us to watch The Walking Dead. So we started watching mid season & could not get into it because we were totally lost. So we gave up. Then the other day Stephen's cousin & wife told us we have to watch it & to order it on Netflix. Well we received season one in the mail yesterday & watched the entire season last night. We were a bit tired today because we were up till 12:30am watching it because it was just to good not to! We are addicted! Love it & I love the suspense! So if you haven't watched it.. I suggested you get your 30 day free trial with NetFlix & get it ordered because you are seriously missing out!!


Thank you for visiting & leaving me your thoughts
