charlotte…in all her glory!

I finally washed my car! Charlotte hadn’t been washed since April and we took her on our camping adventure over Memorial Day weekend where she got absolutely filthy! I could barely see out my back window before she was washed yesterday. I love my beautiful car – she was my first gigantic purchase (and only thus far, excluding my student loan) and I smile a quiet giggle every time I see her, still shocked that she’s mine. I realize I shouldn’t love a possession as much as I love Charlotte, but I do and I love that she’s mine (well, technically now, “ours”). When my husband and I see her parked, we’ve said, since I bought her in 2003, “Look at her in all her glory.” Silly, but I’ll always think that of my Charlotte…sparkling clean or covered in dirt.




BTW, this was me after my Pooplantation experience the other night. Rob secretly tried taking a picture of me but I woke up…

Souplantation-Coma


Tomorrow is a BIG day for gadget geeks...any guesses on what comes out tomorrow...It's BIG news in our household...

I see the cheerio! What a fun picture!

Isn't life more fun when things that are mundane to other people are exciting for us? Keep loving her proudly, sister!

I hope Rob's car got the TLC of a washing like Charlotte did. A few weeks ago his car looked like it was part of a spin-art experiment with bird doodles. :)

you're so cute Alyssa. Charlotte is precious. She should meet my new bike...Lulu. :)

oh yes, the new I-phone right? are you getting one?

Charlotte is very cute. Love the color! I feel bad that our Prius doesn't have a name. :)

The iPhone! As a Apple household, we covet that phone. But the iBaby comes first right now. Diapers or cool new gadget, it was a toss up. I hope you get it and write all about how wonderful it is!

We're really trying to get over this "possessions" thing. Just when I thought I was doing so much better than Alyssa... June 29th happened.
