After a nice breakfast at one of our new favorite spots Cafe Brazil, it was back to the house for showers and change of clothes. By this time it was almost 10am. The car dealership had been open for an hour now so we could go. You read that right....car dealership. I was ready to take the leap. The day before I took my Jeep in to get it complete detailed and washed. I wanted it to look good for trade in value (don't really think it makes a difference) and I wanted to send it off knowing I cared about it. Yes, cars have feelings. I don't care what anyone says. To me they have feelings. So do dolls/toys, they know things that no one else knows so don't say they don't care about you back. Anyway, back to Saturday. I was pretty specific about a couple of things on my wish list for my next car. The top 4 items:
- 4 Door Jeep Wrangler
- Dark Green aka Army Green
- Power Windows
- Power Locks
Surprisingly, my biggest challenge was finding item number 2 in the metroplex! I was looking for used so it was practically impossible to find a used Jeep Wrangler that was dark green with 4 doors. All the ones I could find were out of state and I wasn't shipping any cars. My husband though is amazing and found one. Yeah!! So, we had to hurry to go look at it as we knew it would disappear quickly. As soon as I sat in the drivers seat I knew it was mine. It was perfect. 2 hours later and a lot of time sitting and listen to Preston and the gentlemen of the dealership talk, it was time. Time for me to say goodbye to my 2000 Jeep Wrangler and hello to my 2011 Jeep Wrangler. I didn't care who was watching, I gave her a hug goodbye and took a picture one last time. My hope is that she will go to a high school kid that will run her to the ground. Memories will be made for that teenager with their friends and they will talk about stories of, "Remember when I had that Wrangler in high school and took it out to.....". That is my hope and I will tell myself that it is true. Here is my last hug goodbye!
After the purchasing party we went home for a quick breather before it was time to get dressed and ready to go to our next outing. The League, a show on FX, was here in Dallas for a stand-up comedy show. If you aren't familiar with the show I highly recommend watching it. It is about a group of friends and their fantasy football league. Laughed a lot. They had the typical rules of no outside photography or video and I always follow those rules so no pictures of that event. Just the memories in my head.
That ended a little after 10pm and it was off to our Annual Halloween party. This year it was held at our friend Derek's house and hosted along side his girlfriend Kacie. It was pretty much 11pm by the time we got there, but we were ready to go and so were our friends. Everyone's costumes were awesome. I love how much my friends get into their costumes. It really makes it more fun if you just don't care what others think. My personal favorite was Lola. Tim & Steph's new puppy. Pretty sure you can spot her in the photos below.

|Kacie as Jeanie from I Dream of Jeanie! She is pretty authentic. Myself as Katniss from The Hunger Games.|
|Stephanie as Angus Young and her little Bat Lola. I'm not calling her a bat, that was her costume. You just can't see it in this picture. :)|
Happy Sunday Friends
