New Car

About 2 weeks ago I decided to put Beth's car up for sale on Craigslist. We had started the car shopping process and knew we'd be buying a new car in the next few months. Her car was the one her parents bought her before college. It had almost 150,000 miles on it and was 10 years old. I didn't really think there'd be much interest for a car like that. Man was I wrong. Within 8 hours the car was sold for basically what I was asking for it. Next thing you know, we were car shopping for real. We had kind of decided we were going to buy a certain car and were even planning on going to Dallas to find one. Then we had a complete change and decided we wanted a GMC Acadia. We had one as a rental car a few years ago and ever since then I liked them a lot. Plus with our most recent news, it's time for a somewhat "family" car. Ha ha.

So I find the exact car we were looking for in Bentonville, AR. I got the price we wanted (actually a little better) and it was a deal. Throw in the fact that Beth's sister Stacy is somewhat of a celebrity in NW Arkansas and she went with us to pick up the car. It made the transaction pretty hilarious as the salesmen were fawning over Stacy the entire time. And when she was in the room while we were signing our paperwork, the guy was so flustered he could hardly get out a coherent word. And when Stacy left the room, he said something like, "she's a famous golfer!" Beth and I both just kind of laughed and just said "I guess so." Anyway, here's a few pics of the new car:
