Fantastical Friday

After having my car for 7 years with no major issues or accidents, her day finally came. My husband was driving and a lady gunned it out of her hidden driveway right in front of him and he had no time to stop. My poor baby didn't look bad (and luckily our airbags didn't deploy and Nick is completely fine), but it's hard to get her to start and if you put it in drive, she dies. So now we're waiting on the people the insurance have contracted for appraisals to stop horsing around and get on the appraising. They tried to tell us there was no mechanical damage...funniest joke I've heard in a long time. Plus we're visiting family out of state...we were supposed to leave today, but that's not happening.

Nick picked a 2014 VW Jetta for our rental while we wait to hear word on my car. My first car was a 1994 VW Jetta :) A little nostalgia...although the '94 was way better than the 2014. Holy blindspots, Batman! The color is gorgeous though - it's this really pretty sapphire-like color! And the trunk is still enormous in this updated version.

We've also spent the last week fighting off viruses or something. I got better just to catch something else, so I spent one whole day just sleeping. Lots of time in bed means lots of time to pin...if you don't follow me on Pinterest - you totally should: here. I also joined Instagram and have been posting tons of pictures of all the animals here at my family's house. My mom-in-law's black lab got pregnant by their now-10 month old chocolate lab and she had 7 puppies. They are 3 weeks old and so adorable. So follow me for puppy pictures!
