winners of the giveaway!

yes, that's right. i said winners! Amanda decided to pick 2! she had her daughter pick two #'s. 1-58. we got 20 and 26! the winners of the addison renee boutique giveaway are Stacey and Lauran! please email amanda at addisonreneeboutique@gmail.com and let her know what you want and she will get those shipped out to you as soon as possible! thanks everyone for participating :) congrats girls!

i hope everyone is having a great weekend.. we've kinda been MIA lately. it's been a busy week. our dryer broke on monday and we didn't find that out until we had already put our clothes in the washer. i spent that night at my parents drying and washing the rest of our clothes.

we ended up spontaneously trading in sean's truck last night and buying a new car... we are now the owners a 2010 toyota corolla! kinda crazy. sean is sure missing his truck, but he is excited to save some gas money. i have no doubt that he will get another truck someday. and for the record this was his idea, not mine.

i could never decide to sit at a car dealership for like 4 hours. longest night of my life. we sat for like 2 hours with no entertainment, and then they finally told us we could sit on these nice couches by a tv. sean watched a basketball game on one tv and i of course watched property virgins on HGTV, only to have them call us in to sign right when i was going to find out what house these buyers were going to get. boo. i hate that. anyway, i hope we never have to buy another car again.

sean snapped a picture when i wasn't looking.
Photobucket
so i snapped one when he wasn't looking...(obviously we were bored and very impatient) and then we finally got out of there with our new car... (it was actually dark when we left so i took that one today)

sean's truck was named betty. betty ford. get it? (his truck was a ford) and my car is named chuck. for chuck norris. because it's awesome and doesn't need to be taken care of. and i don't take care of it. so it all works out in the end. except when the clutch dies because i didn't take care of it and i regret that. but i'm pretty sure that will never happen again........or at least for a very long time. we can't seem to agree on a name for this one. any ideas?

sad day about sean's truck...but expensive gas sucks, so it's probably for the best.

hope you guys get the washer and dryer fixed up soon!

love you lady! hope you're enjoying your weekend!

That is the funniest bored picture ever! I'm so excited that I won your giveaway! I don't have any headbands, so I chose one from her shop. Yay!

Yay for a new car! It's so cute! And your trip to Vegas looked like so much fun, I'm glad sean planned that little surprise. And loved how you got so excited to see him at the airport, I would have been the same way. You two are just so cute.

Shannon said...

My first car was a civic, and his name was chuck too! None of my friends understood how it fit, but it just felt like the right name.

the Lovelist said...

ooo congrats on the new car :)

samnhal said...

You could name it boop, as a follow up to betty, but that is kind of a lame car name. I guess it depends on if it's a boy or a girl hmm...hard one. Sweet new car though.

♥ Katinka said...

Congrats on the new car :)

Lauran said...

Yay for me winning the giveaway! And yay for your new car, that is super exciting.

Caroline said...

Ahhh saving money for gas is a true true thing. I had a Jeep for awhile, and finally broke down and sold it for a blue Honda Civic. It is amazing when you can fill up your vehicle with 20-30$ and it lasts two weeks... LOVE!! Congrats on the new car!!! And, those pictures of the two of you are great! Much love sweet lady! xo

Staci T said...

Ahh! Cute car...I am glad your friend liked her Lush stuff. I hope she has a lovely bath. She deserves it after all the nice things she does for people. She is a good, kind, soul. And her husband too! Love you!

Sam said...

oo pretty! and yay for the winners :) I don't have any name suggestions... hmm. I'll have to think about it!

Shayla said...

JMay said...

Ok, you look so cute in that pic! Dealerships seriously take forever, we just recently bought a new car so I feel you.

Yay for saving gas!

"my car is named chuck. for chuck norris. because it's awesome and
doesn't need to be taken care of. and i don't take care of it. " You kill me. That's hilarious. My car is a '92 toyota camry that I name "bessy" because it's big and old and slow.

anna said...

just don't trade in chuck norris. ever. i love the stories about that car! and i might lose love for this blog if you lose chuck.

betty sure is pretty. are you feeling a little jealous and insecure about your relationship with sean right now?

just jokes. right??

Annie said...

hahahaha, i love that you named your car chuck norris, you are way too funny!! ha! enjoy that new car lady!

hope you are having a great week!!

Cole said...
