^Nice. I love Toyotas and Hondas. You can drive the CRAP out them and they just keep going.

What color Rav did you get?

Last week I got the news that my car had a blown head gasket. It is a 1994 Toyota Tercel. We started looking at replacements. Due to the weather we get here in winter and my wife drives a Honda CR-V, we decided on another all wheel drive. We started looking on Thursday. Sunday the Tercel finally died. Tuesday we looked at a Toyota Rav4. I will being picking it up tomorrow.

Can I ask what you payed, because that price is a bit high for the milage the car has.

It is Blizzard Pearl. Not a color I would choose but I'm not complaining.

We got it down to 11,250. It was in great shape. Only one owner who had the dealer do all the regular maintenance. Drives very nice.

Not terrible price but it's always subjective, looked excellent from the pics online. We're looking to get a car this summer, we usually buy new but we're thinking about going Certified Used. Have been looking at a few cars online to gauge what we may want.

I purchased a brand new heat exchanger for my outside unit. A nice big fat $1100.

Thanks Obama!

As I read this, I'm sitting in a waiting room having work done on my RAV4 (Break job). In six years, the only major problem I've had is the alternator (replaced.) Beyond that, it's all been basic maintenance and replacing brake pads and tires when needed. Best car I've ever had.

Finally got the collars for my dogs. Late Xmas gifts. The color on the blue one looks off in the pic but it's better in real life.

Also got a My little pony 2014 calendar and some snacks.

Just picked up a new nail lacquer- Petra by Marc Jacobs.



I love to do my nails.

^I haven't done my nails for nearly 10 years.

Bought some lipgloss, hair dye, soda and candy. Another exciting afternoon at home.

^Cool. I haven't painted mine in a while, but for some reason I continue to buy pretty colors of nail polish anyway. ^_^

Last thing I paid for was the premium for my new health insurance plan. Nothing fun today. =(

I'll tell them you said so. I was slightly disappointed though, the site said the Trek logo was reflective and on the clip thing, and it's rubber and on the collar part. Oh well.

Here is a night time picture of it. The blue car in front of it is my Tercel that the Rav4 is replacing. It won't turn over and I'm going to have it bought and towed by a local salvage yard.

Nice car, man. I hope it works out for both you and your wife. More space for storage and passengers is always better when you upgrade.

As for me, I picked up some weekend groceries along with some new Star Wars figures I didn't already have and had been wanting.
