Back in 1997 when our son went to college we sold my mini-van and I got a little green Saturn coupe with a sunroof. I was sure that my mini-van mom days were over. I loved that little car (Mr. Mid-Atlantic hated it but he had a Jeep and he was happy if I was happy). Well the little Saturn got old and tired but kept plugging along. In January of 2008 our daughter told us that she was expecting...twins! That was a Monday and on the following Friday my little Saturn died. My mechanic said that he didn't think he could bring her back to life, so it was time for a new car. Daughter had a small Honda. Son-in-law had a pick up truck. Mr. Mid-Atlantic had a pick up truck. We looked at each other and said, "With twins coming, somebody needs a mini-van." And so, I purchased another mini-van. A couple of months ago our daughter and her husband purchased a much bigger car with a third row seat. Last month Mr. Mid-Atlantic paid off my mini-van and said, "Let's give this to son and daughter-in-love for their family and you get what you want." Yipeeee! So after we got back from vacation...I started looking. And Friday I got exactly what I wanted......a.......Guess! No really....I'm not going to tell you...but, I'm a van-nana no more! What do you think I have in my driveway that really makes me smile? I'm going to send the first person who guesses correctly a $10 Starbucks gift card. Here are the rules. You can make one guess a day until Friday. On Friday evening I'll announce the winner. The contest will stay open even if someone guesses correctly -- It will be fun to see what you all come up with. All the names of those who participate will be entered in a random drawing for another $10 Starbucks gift card -- so even wrong guesses will get a chance.
Good Luck and I'm looking forward to finding out what you think I'm driving now!
I'll be announcing the winner on Friday and the twins turn 2 on Saturday!
