My New Love

We did it.
We finally took the big leap and bought a minivan.
I wish I could say that I am just too young and hip to be driving it around.
But I love it!
And the kids, they love it too.
And Matt, don't let him fool you with all his talk, he loves it just as much as everyone else.
Power doors, my dream come true.
2 DVD players, my kids dream come true.
I am actually almost excited for winter so I can use my remote starter and heated seats.  Almost.
I seriously feel like a dork with how excited I am about getting a minivan.
And for the record...I am too young and hip for it.
Right!? :)

I saw this video awhile back when is came out and thought it was hilarious!
I have since seen it everywhere so you probably have too.  But if you somehow missed it you have to see it.  Funny stuff! 
(You'll have to pause the music player at the bottom of the page so you can hear the video.)



Have a FABULOUS weekend!! :)

Oh, MY GOSH! That is so funny. That was new for me too. "I gotta potty." Every parents humble pie. :)

I hope everything is going well for you. I miss seeing everyone's blog these days.

That was too funny! I used to have a mini van, but I didn't keep it for very long!

Lourie said...

Hahaha! That is funny! Welcome to minivan club. Here is your honorary badge. Wear it proud. ;)

That video was awesome and so helped lift my sagging spirits! It also made me miss my minivan. Yes, I actually miss it and can't wait to get another one. I bet you're the hippest minivan momma in town!

Helga said...

How exciting!!! My oldest son...who is 13, wants a Mini van so bad! He thinks they are the coolest cars ever because of all the space and extras that do not come with the "regular" cars LOL.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the new ride!

Stephanie said...

I don't care what anyone says - minivans are awesome!!! I couldn't live without mine :)

Gramma said...

That is so stinkin FUNNY!!!! I haven't seen it before!!
You DO have an AWESOME minivan...and you DO look very hip behind the wheel!!! Even more important is that the kids love it and we all know why!!! haha

I had never seen that video before. Hilarious!

I had my minivan until just recently, when the kids were about 10 and 11 or 11 and 12...then I got the 4 wheel drive SUV, because I do so much driving to speaking engagments and Mike felt better about me having the 4x4 during the spring and winter months. But, I loved my van (and that was before all the fancy gadgets you have!!!! I remember travelling in our van to Sanibel Island, FL in the van with two kids around 5 and 6 and renting a DVD player/t.v combo unit...the portable ones that you could plug into the cigarette lighter in cars hadn't come out-Mike rigged up an adapter for a regular outlet that plugged into the cigarette lighter and we secured it to a wooden table and bungee corded it to the seat - and we had one of THE FIRST EVER portable DVD players!!!!)Funny!

Love that video...so funny!

My minivan is a total swagger wagon! We love our minivan too. It's so great for kids, so much room, and nice to drive. Those who refuse to drive one don't know what they are missing!

blueviolet said...

As long as you are happy that you have a minivan, that's all that matters! :)

Carrie said...

Yeah for you! You are going to absolutely love having the van. I took the leap two years ago and the only thing that would make me go back to an suv is the 4 wheel drive (might need it when we build our new house as the driveway is kinda steep and may be a bugger in the winter) Anywhoo, you will love it more each day. Isn't it funny how practicality outweighs 'coolness' when you have kids!?

Jen said...

We loved our minivan for the little kid ages...now we are back in an SUV....DVD player too, no going back.
Congrats and best wishes for many happy miles!

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

Laura, that's exciting. (And, yes, I think you are too young and hip for it.)

That video is great! Thanks for posting it.

Arizona Mamma said...

You gotta share some pictures!

Jen said...

Enjoy your van! I (secretly) love mine! Haha...no, really I do. never thought that i would drive a mini van, but, yep, I do...most days. I have a car too, but really do like all the room in the van! Have fun!
