life upgrade: new car edition

by Valli

Dashboard I must say that I had a pretty awesome weekend. I went shopping for a much needed new purse and ended up buying one plus a new car! I had been thinking about getting a new car for some time now. It came about mostly because I was thinking about how I could do the NASCAR road trip and I didn’t want to attempt it in my old car because it was getting older. So there was that plus the fact that I really, really wanted a car with a navigation system and an outlet for my iPod.

I checked out the 2008 Volkswagen Eos online and found that it met my base criteria and then some. It has a convertible hardtop with sunroof, butt warmers (heated seats), leather interior, digital displays, power seats & windows and Sirius satellite radio. It doesn’t stop there either! I’m not going to list all the stuff, but let’s just say I love this car a lot! It also signifies a step-up for me, I think of this as my “grown-up” car. Just looking at me people think that I’m still in high school and I don’t think my old Matrix was helping to combat that impression. I was driving the Eos today and I actually got looks from dudes — guys my age! So that’s a step in the right direction. πŸ™‚

Oh and about my purse, I love it too! It’s by L.A.M.B., Gwen Stefani’s fashion line. It’s super sophisticated and chic. It’s also super practical — it’s sooo much easier to get stuff in and out of it. I might post a photo of that later. Until then enjoy photos of my new “baby,” I still need to figure out a name for her. I’m leaning towards Aurora only because Eos is the greek goddess of the dawn and Aurora is the Latin name for Eos. But I dunno. In my Google search I found this: “Eos had an unquenchable desire for handsome young men, some say as the result of a curse laid upon her by the goddess Aphrodite.” That’s high-larious! This is the perfect car for me! πŸ™‚ haha.
