A few more things...

So, what I didn't have time to tell you guys in my last post was that on Thursday night I went out and bought a ...

new car! Correction: Husband bought it. :)

I got this little pretty thing:

It's a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and I love it! I haven't named her yet, and I am open for suggestions! My "old" car wasn't old at all. I actually had it less than a year but a Honda Civic was a bit too small for my growing toddler. I was tired of getting my seats kicked and having to struggle to put her in her carseat. Plus, I really missed my Jeep and have been in love with the redesigned 2011 model since it was first announced. I didn't waste anytime breaking it in either. Saturday afternoon my step-dad, brother, Madi and I all headed down (or up?!) to Auburn, GA for my nephew's birthday party and to visit with my step-sister and her family. We had a nice little trip.

Madi really had a blast playing on the swing set. I think I know what to buy her next summer.

I really wish this wasn't blurry.

Sunday morning consisted of mostly this:

Madi and her cousin Zane, watching Backyardigans on the iPad. Aren't they cute?

Sunday afternoon we went to Ikea in downtown Atlanta, GA before heading back home. I drove there, not realizing I'd have to drive on a SIX LANE highway, not at all lacking excessive Atlanta traffic!! The baseball playoffs were going on during that same time so the traffic was even worse than usual. I was proud of myself for not freaking out. It was actually kind of fun!

Unfortunately I didn't have the day off today, so I'm already back in work mode. How was y'alls weekend? Hope you guys had a great one and a great Columbus Day!

Wow, I love your new car! I dont think I have seen the new 2011 design yet but it looks beautiful! My hubs and I have been searching for a new car these past couple of months and are yet to decide on one- maybe we should look at those!

Oh my gosh I love your new car!! How exciting! You and Madi look so cute in the swing set picture! And I LOVE IKEA! I'm proud of you for not freaking out in all of that crazy atlanta traffic, I still sometime freak out when it gets really bad. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!

You were 15 minutes from me when you were at IKEA! Glad you survived the traffic! I love the new car...I will help with name suggestions but is it a boy or girl?
