The Usual Weekend Update

So as promised, I am a little more focused today which means I can tell you my good news.  I sold my car.  I put it up on Craigslist (so not cut out for wheeling and dealing on here) on Wednesday and my car was sold by Saturday.  There was a bit of drama due to some douche trying to tell me I was setting off all these red flags for him on the purchase, but after kicking him to the curb, my was sold to a young couple with a family.  And they paid in CASH!  I may have or may not have thought (yes only thought) about making it rain.  I was only rolling deep in benjamin's for a day or two.  Into the bank my fun went.
I will admit, I am sad because I had that car for almost eight years and took such great care of it.  I even paid a $500 deductible to get the entire front end painted, a new grill, new headlights, new windshield and new mirrors.  In Nevada you can put in a non-liability insurance claim and get damage that was done by nature (ie driving 40 minutes to and from work daily) fixed.  So needless to say, I a bit heartbroken.  Especially because I don't have a car at the moment (we have R's truck) and I have to borrow my dads monster gigantic truck.  Thanks Dad!  It's just my dad's truck is such a pain to park, find a parking spot big enough and did I mention it is HUGE!
My sweet car right before she was listed.

So basically R had to take me everywhere on Sunday since I didn't get my dad's truck until Monday.  Que lots of errands including Costco, Whole Foods and the dreaded mall.  But hey R did get some items for Mexico too.  As promised, R did take me to get a new bikini and I may have also got two skirts and a pair of shorts.  You know because I needed them for Mexico and everything in my closet wouldn't be enough.  It's believable if you have never been to my house.

I could have shopped more, but my wallet would already hate me more than it does.  So hopefully my last year's summer clothes will do.  Oh and I got my nails done in a vacation-y theme.

Can you tell I only have two things on my mind right now?  Vacation and my dearly departed car.
How was your weekend?  P.S. only 5 days until Mexico.

  1. I love that bathing suit and those shorts. I can't go into Francesca's because I always want to buy so many things!

    1. I have a problem at Francesca's too. And they have all the new spring/summer stuff coming out. I could have bought a few more things, but held back. Or maybe it was because my husband was with me and was giving me the eye, haha. But I did manage to get buy one, get one half off. So I would call it a win there!
