We are now the proud owners of our very own 2009 Toyota Highlander!  Yay!

Jason managed to finagle quite a deal, so we headed down to the dealership, and bought this beast this afternoon:

And since neither one of us has purchased a car before, we just assumed we could put it on the old credit card.  Mmmm.  Not so much.  Note to selves: still bring checkbook for all major transactions, even if the credit card limit is more than you make in a year.

We hope to pick her up on Friday…  After the dealership installs the heated leather seats that I insisted on.  (And after we return with a check, because of our credit card fiasco).  Because that’s how we roll.

Now, all I have left to do is persuade Jason to take the camry to Michigan and leave me with our new baby car when he moves in a month.

  1. Hmm, looks like a pretty sweet ride….I personally think you should have the bigger car because when Jason leaves, there are two of you (Jen & Barley) and only one of him. So….does he really need all that room?

    And doesn’t he want to keep his darling safe while he is gone by surrounding her with all that heavy metal to protect her?

  2. Oh, I forgot to say “I’m gonna leave my nose out of it!”

  3. It’s a beauty! Good luck with it! You two should have your own news channel with all the breaking news you’ve had this year.

  4. Yeah, dealers usually don’t take credit cards due to the processing fees. Think about them paying around 3% of the purchase price towards Visa/MasterCard/Discover/AmEx and it makes sense pretty quickly 🙂

  5. Wow! That’s a great picture of your new car…your photography skills are improving quickly! 🙂 j/k….

    But seriously, LOVE it! ..oh, and with your move, you’ll be just a state away! 🙂


  6. That is really fancy! I don’t think Jason has a chance at taking that with him!!!!

  7. I am with your mom, you should keep the new car. That way when i move in with you this summer we can drive around in a brand new car! Plus its a big car, so it can protect us from all of our scary nightmares! 😉
