I'm One of Them!!

When I was in high school, I swore I would never be one of them. I swore that I would never be that "uncool". I swore I would have more sophistication but alas it has happened...

I have turned into a MINI-VAN MAMA!!

How totally cool is that? Now that I am a mom, I not only LOVE my mini-van but I rock out my mini van!

And here is the crazy thing, I am learning just how much money we save by my being a mini-van mama! Do you know how much money a big old SUV burns as it is burning your expensive gas?!?

If you are interested in a family vehicle, I would recommend being "uncool" with a mini-van!

And while you're actually being quite cool, do the cool thing and take a gander at my new blog!

I agree! I love our mini-van and did NOT like the Tahoe we used to have. Not only do I get better gas mileage with our van, but young kids can get in the van themselves and not need to be lifted in. Thanks for the FF idea.

I wish I were so cool, my SUV costs a small fortune to drive. Luckily, everything is nearby. Btw, I love your blog header, it is adorable!

So jealous. While I LOOOOOVE 45mpg, shoving three car seated kids in a Civic is getting real old. I'm ready to join the ranks of the mini-van mamas.

I have four children, and we have a pacifica. Not a mini van, but close. :0)

We've had vans or SUVs for years, being parents of four. Now that 2 are grown and gone and the third drives himself (number 4 still hasn't passed his road test), my Ford Escape is probably the last of that kind of car we'll have. But I'll tell you one car my husband refused to ever get--a station wagon! Now THAT is a car that makes you look like an old suburbanite!

I'm a mini-van mama too! It's so nice to be cool with others!!!
