AW- New car!

FI and I (finally!) bought a new car today! We decided to go with the 2007 Volvo XC90. We got one that has super low miles, and a ridiculously amazing warranty/maintenance package (we don't have to pay for ANY work on the car for 6 years), and shiny wheels that make FI happy! This was our first major purchase together, and it felt really cool when we were signing papers to have both of our names on there. Also, like every person there kept thinking we were already married. I thought that was pretty funny. Anyway, I'm excited, yay! Now we just need to get hitched so I can fill my new mommy car up with babies!

    Not *right* away, but in the next few years, yeah. Right before we took it home the dealer guy showed us that the seat that has the built-in pop up booster seat also can slide forward so "the little guy can sit between mom & dad". It is so cute I told FI I wanted to have babies right now! He said "Thanks a lot..." to the dealer, lol. I love my mommy car. Even if I'm not one yet!

    i'm kinda jealous. I want a mommy car. FI and I planned to have babies 3-4 years after. But now FI is trippin. He keeps telling me he wants to start trying to get pregnant 6 months after we get married. No WAY! I atleast need to wait like 2 years.

    Yay on the new momy car. I have one already that I love. Its a 2007 Honda Civic. I was telling DH about a month after we bought it that we wouldn't need to buy a new car for a while due to the fact that it already has all the needed carseat hookups.DH and I are planning to wait about 3 years before we start having kids but I really want them now. He even told me the other day that he had a slight change of heart for a day and almost wanted to start now instead of waiting.

    Congrats! My FI and I just did that very same thing a few months ago. We bought an 06 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. It really is a great feeling to make your first big purchase together. We wanted to buy a mommy car now since we are planning on trying for a baby fairly soon after the wedding. We thought it best to spread out the big purchases like the car and the wedding.Congrats again!

    Thank you! We decided to buy a "mommy car" now too because we HAD to buy a car (since mine was no longer running), and didn't want to have to go through all the mess of buying one again in a few years when we do want to have babies. Also, FI really wanted something that has AWD since his Acura is terrible in snow/ice. This way, everybody wins!

    Nice!  The AWD on the Volvos are really nice too - FI has always been a Subaru fan but he was impressed with how my car handles in snow.  I'm trying to hold off on getting a new car until my S60 is paid off in a few years because I figure by then it'll probably be time for a family car and like you, I don't really want to have to go through the hassle in a few years.  That plus, this is only my second car - my first one I had for over 6 years so I tend to hold onto them.

    Yeah, I had my last (terrible) car for 8 years, and we plan to hold onto the Volvo for a good while. It only had 18,000 miles on it, compared to the 35,000 on most of the other 2007s, so I think it'll last a while. I just tried putting it in our 1 car garage, which I was terrified about, but it fits just fine! It was so exciting to see it sitting in OUR garage because it belongs to US. Considering my last car was a Ford Escort, I keep pinching myself at how amazing this car is in comparison. And I get to drive it every day! Yay yay yay! FI would die if he knew this, but today when the mommies came to pick their kids up from school, I totally was picturing me doing that with our kids in the new mommy car.

    Lol, just keep that image to yourself and your FI will be fine.  I think in that case, ignorance is bliss. ;)
