I've never owned a new car before, so this is a pretty big deal for me. My old car was basically falling apart around me. I couldn't take it on my commute to work everyday, so I had to drive the hubby's car. He is very happy to have his car back.
Finding a new car was difficult. I knew I wanted a Honda. I tried to convince myself that I could get something else, but in the end, I just couldn't do it. I was born and raised a Honda girl, and the only reason I had that Cavalier was because it was a cheap car to get me through college.
The other reason that finding a car was hard was because I wanted a stick shift. I would not budge on that. It's silly, but they're very hard to find on dealer lots right now. My first car, a 1991 Honda Accord, was a stick and I loved driving it. The hubby's car is a stick, too. I also think that, being a 5 foot 3 inch young girl, driving a stick shift makes me feel like a badass. There. I admitted to it. You can go do your victory dance, husband.
All in all, this has been a good day so far. I'm going to drive my new baby over to grandma and grandpa's so my parents can get a good look at her.
