We brought home a new addition to our family on Wednesday. Maddie loves her.

We kept the name her previous owners gave her. Goldilocks. It fits.

She's a little older than we thought. She's actually 16 years old. But, we took her and had her checked out. We were promised that she still has lots of life in her. In fact, she can run as well as one half her age. Let's hope it stays that way.

She's big. She's loveable. She's gonna make you move out of her way. Like or not.

You wanna see a picture of Goldilocks?

I know you do.

Here she is- my pride and joy.

Yes. I now drive a big, gold '93 Oldsmobile 88 Royale. A grandma car. But, I don't care.

Our '98 Explorer needs a new engine, and has for the last year and a half. It drinks gas like I drink coffee.

Goldilocks only has 109,000 miles on it. And gets waaaaay better gas mileage. That matters.

Oh, and she was free. That matters, too.

So, if you see a grandma car rolling down the road, don't assume it's a 70 year old blue hair.

It might be me.

Goldilocks is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Plenty of room (for another car seat);). You know I'm kidding, right, not really though. New house, new car, new baby???? Please, oh please. Love ya lots and lots, (and more if you have another baby) JK

Congrats on the newest addition to your family! How totally appropriate that it was named after a nursery rhyme character!

If you drive by my place give me a honk!

Happy Mother's Day!

I waved at you today!

You were going really, really slow. I also mouthed "Happy Mother's Day" because you were obviously a mom.

Nice lookin' and if it drives..hey it's worth it right?

Awesome...I just got myself a red head...Lumina...not too long ago.

Love your blog, by the way. I've been busy with some personal stuff and have a lot to catch up on it. Plan to this week.
