Out with Old, In with the New

I had a really great week, and Hubby spoiled me rotten. He called me Friday afternoon and told me to get everything out of my car and wash it…so I did. He came home about an hour later and said “get your keys”. We got in the car and he drove me to the Toyota house. I have been wanting a Toyota for several years now. I test drove a Venza and a Highlander and in the end went with the Highlander.
Hubby is an EXCELLENT negotiator when it comes to purchasing new cars (I always feel sorry for the car reps). He told the rep what he was willing to pay and when they came back and said there is NO WAY we can do that, hubby got our keys and walked out. Two hours later the rep called us and said if we would come up $500 on what we said we would pay then we had a deal. So I got a brand new 2010 fully loaded Highlander Limited for an incredible price on top of 0% financing :)

Then, as if that wasn’t enough, Sunday he went to Verizon to get himself a new phone (his broke) and he came home with a new one for me too. I have to say, when I got it I was a little overwhelmed, but now I LOVE MY NEW PHONE!
We got Motorola Droids. I swear they are just like mini laptop computers :)
We also had family here since Saturday…doesn’t get any better than that! Too bad they had to leave this morning. I already miss them and we are already planning trips to visit again :)
Hope everyone is enjoying their week, and if you are celebrating Spring Break I hope you are enjoying some sunshine!!

Can you say jealous???...A new car and an Iphone all in the same weekend! Congrats!

I love the Highlander! Great color choice! I can just breathe in the "new car" smell right now...:0)

have fun with your new ride.

CJ said...

Funny, when I saw the car's interior I could almost smell it too! Mmmmmmm. :D
Such a nice looking vehicle. It will probably even stay that nice clean color on your roads. ;)
The phone looks WAY too complicated for me! LOL.
Have fun with your new 'toys'.

Whooohoo, so jealous! I will be lucky if mine gets fixed! For now mine is fixed but my hubby's alternator is messed up on his now. I was thinking of taking a trip to get a new one, must resist the urge. Congrats on your new goodies :)

Wow, I want a hubby like yours! Enjoy the new toys.
