Doing What Makes Sense

So…we did it. We bought a mini van. I never imagined I’d ever own a mini van especially while only being 27 with 1 baby. But here we are. I went from a 2 door Chevy cobalt, to an Audi, and now our beautiful mini van!

Why did we do it? It just made sense. We weighed out our pros and cons and ultimately decided on the van. Really the only cons of a mini van was simply that, it was a mini van. LOL.  The pros that really made us make our decision were the sliding doors (a beautiful thing), more space (we tend to be on the road a lot), easier for kids to get in and out of (guess we are having more kids!), and a few other perks. My husband spent a long time searching for the right van. It had to have certain features that were actually quite hard to find. He finally found it (at a dealership 3 hours away)! And it clearly was THE ONE.


I’ve gotta say it’s a pretty good-looking mini van…

We have only been driving it for a few days and we are both already very happy and sure about our decision. I think a lot of people have negative feelings against mini vans and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of “soccer mom” comments but you know what, it just makes sense. So much more practical and convinient, and really that’s what it comes down to. Some people are just too into the “image” their car gives off. Guys, it’s time to move on. =P

Oh, and did I mention it’s paid for in full? Even more the reason to be happy.

So whatever it is, just do what makes sense.

Any other van drivers out there? What do you love about your van?




Hello fellow mommies and mommies to be!


For those of you that don’t personally know me, I’m a new mommy to a beautiful baby boy who was born December 15, 2015. I was an elementary special education teacher, for 3.5 years, who made the decision to leave her job to be able to stay at home (something I’ve always dreamed of being able to do!). I’ve been contemplating the whole blog thing for quite awhile now and finally decided to make the move.

I love learning new things and believe in the importance of being a life long learner. I also love being able to help others so the purpose of my blog writing will be to help others through their journey whether it be pregnancy, motherhood, or beyond! I have spent a lot of time reading and researching new things since the moment I found out I was pregnant. So, if you are expecting or if you are a new mommy then this is the place to be! I will be backtracking and writing about my pregnancy journey as well as my current journey as a new mommy and wife covering a wide array of topics.

Feel free to leave any questions/comments or suggestions for new posts! I’m excited for this blog and I’m looking forward to making more connections with like-minded mommies. =)
