I Did It!

Hey Y'all! 
I did it!  Finally quit wondering if I really wanted a new Kia Soul or not.  Took our Minivan in and traded it on this:

Can I tell you how much I love it?! 

Last night we had plans to go to see some fireworks and eat some good "festival type" food!  Big Daddy is on call with his job this week and he got called out around 5:00 PM.  There was a large truck hauling dead animal parts that spilled it's load all over Interstate 85 for about 200 yards.  He had to get a backhoe and clean all of it up and then take it to bury it all.  He said there were hog heads, cow heads, and pure nastiness strung all over two lanes of the interstate.  YUCK!  I'm so glad I wasn't the one having to smell that and dispose of it.  Bless his heart!
We decided to have our friends meet up here at The Doublewide and then we headed on without him, with hopes that he wouldn't be too late and could come join us.  Didn't happen because he was too late getting back, but that delicious ear of roasted corn sopped in butter and salt did it's best to make up for it.
Tomorrow I'll be turning the Big 4-0!  Can't even stand it, but time marches on...and it's wearing combat boots too!
After my hair-dyin' timer goes off, I'm headed to the shower and then going out with my little sister for the day.  We are getting pedicures and then doing some shopping.  I have GOT to get my Hobby Lobby "fix" for the day and I am really looking forward to spending time with her.
I'll be back Monday with pictures from the weekend.  I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Oh, nice car! Aren't new cars fun! I've had mine about six months, and every time I look at it, I just have to thank Jesus. So nice.

Happy birthday. Now look, girl, don't just be 40........ no, no, no, you OWN 40! So much more fun that way!

Cute new ride! Happy birthday to you! My husband turned 40 on June 21. I've still got a few years, but it's quickly approaching!
