I'm super excited/super frusterated about the whole thing. I've hated my old van for about a year. It was ALWAYS in the shop; I couldn't ever trust it. It had a lot of miles and was falling apart in places, and parts were getting really hard to find for it.
But it was paid off. It was all ours. I knew how to do everything with it. I didn't care about where I parked it because it didn't matter if it go scratched or dented or whatever.
Our new van is 7 years old, but has such low miles it's like it's only 2 years old. We got an amazing price on it. It has a rediculous number of extras on it. It has much more space inside so my kids don't hit each other.
But it means a signifigant car payment. And I don't know how to use all the extras. And I'm scared that I'll get in an accident or something.
And it's silver.
I'm not really a fan of silver. Everyone has a silver car. I liked that my old van was unique; I could always pick it out. This one, not so much.
So I needed to change that. I asked for input on Face book. I googled (a LOT) for ideas. And I finally found MarkedCo on etsy.
I lover her stuff.
Super fun, nice and quirky. Adorable ideas.
I asked her to customize something for me (just a little customize. It was something designed for a laptop, and I wanted it car sized). She was super easy to work with and got my stuff to me quickly.
And I made my mini van AWESOME.
This is on the rear passenger window. I think it's my new motto.
And then moving on to the really fun side:
It starts on the rear drivers side window
And wonders over to the back.
I love it. And I can find my van now. It makes me super happy!
