Last Friday I bought a car that I've loved since I was a little girl and my parents had one. I always hoped to have one of my own someday....and now I do! And yes...it's my favorite car ever!
The one my parents had was a bright red....but you can see mine is green.
Can you tell yet?
I just had to get a monogram for my new car -- so now it's my favorite color combination -- Green and pink! I got this from "2 Preppy Girls" -- be sure to check her out -- she has lot's of fun things -- and she blogs too!
And looky here! My new car is a convertible!-- they didn't even make them that way back in the 60's when my folks had theirs.
What's this I see when we peek inside!
Another pink accent! By now I'm pretty sure you know that my new car is......
......a VW Bug convertible!
Oh what fun for this gal....brings me back to my childhood and really makes me smile. What a week of fun (except it's rained just about every day since I got it) ...
....but tomorrow should be bright and warm so the top comes down and we're riding! Now if I can just figure out what I want on my plates....any great ideas?
Now for the fun....as promised - I said that if there was a correct guess they would win a Starbucks gift certificate. We did have a guess that was "A convertible VW Bug"!
So this $10 Starbucks card goes to Kendra Haden of "Haden News" -- love her wonderful blog filled with lots of great recipes. Kendra, I hope you'll enjoy a trip to Starbucks on me!
There were 11 other guesses as well...you all thought I was driving a Saturn Coupe, Honda Accord, Crysler Spitfire, Saturn (Sports car), Chevy mailbu, a Convertible VW (no particular model), Mini Cooper convertible, Ford Focus, Mini Cooper, Saturn Coupe Convertible and a Smart Car. And the random winner of the second $10 Starbuck gift card was Deb of "What's In My Attic" (she wouldn't even want to know what's in mine!) Deb is another Mid-Atlantic gal and I hope you'll have fun treating yourself to a cup of your favorite Starbucks beverage soon.
Thanks all of you for guessing -- it was so fun to read what you picked out for me to drive!
