Meet Sylvie....


I always name my cars....Jordan's car is "Boom Boom"
It's so funny because that is what Vincent refers to it as now...so cute!
 and I have named mine Sylvie (thanks Linds)!

Yesterday, I ranted about how stressed I was over the SUV search!

We went to drive the LR3 first....and I was in LOVE, it was HUGE and perfect!
We started the negotiation process and they wouldn't budge on the price...
They wouldn't even give us an idea of how low they would go...
I was pissed...
We also had the boys with us so dealing with lame negotiations was not ideal....
We left and went next door and drove the Volvo...It was decent but I was not in LOVE...
Jordan and I chatted and discussed our plan...we decided on a set price that we would offer...
We went back in and Jordan gave them our top line price...
He was actually hoping they would say no because the Volvo was so cheap compared to it...
I of course was crossing my fingers and praying...
Luke and I stayed in the car because I figured it would be quick!
He walked in and walked out within 5 minutes...
My heart kind of dropped but I did not want to pay more than what we agreed on,
So I was fine with walking away....
While he was strapping Vincent in the manager came out...
They chatted more...He asked Jordan if he would go up anymore...
Jordan busted out his MBA skills in negotiation and went to town...
He told him point blank he didn't even want to give him that much money...
Anyways he took Jordan back inside...
They pounded out more discussions....
He walked out with a straight face, which I figured was bad news
and said "Well hunny you own a Land Rover!"
I about died....

It took a few hours or so to get all the paperwork done and trade in our Equinox...
But she is now OURS!!!
I didn't even drive her yesterday, I was actually a little nervous...
I took her to the grocery today and holy cow she is a beast...

Here are a few reasons why I love it...
She is HUGE....
 I can no joke fit the baby carseat in-between the boys!
We won't even have to use the 3rd row unless we want....
The height inside is NUTS...
I used to hit Vincent's little head on the edge of the Equinox trying to get him in....
Now it is NO problem...
They are also sitting up so high they can see EVERYTHING...
Luke was freaking out with excitement when we started driving it!!!
 Here is it with the 3rd row up....
Here is an actual inside view to get a better idea....

It has sweet panoramic sunroofs...Vincent found this really cool...
I am thinking fireworks from inside the car! :)
 She is SEXY as all get out....
She is HEAVY....6,000lbs or so...so we can take out anything in our path...
I wouldn't suggest cutting me off...
haha Joking but I love how strong and sturdy she is just in case...
You can lower and raise the entire car with the push of a button.
You can off road and go through water like a champ...as if I will ever do that!

I am just in LOVE...
Thanks to Hannah (we have twin cars) & Lindsay for all the info and help!!
If you are looking at 7 seaters, check these bad boys!
With that being said the others I drove were amazing...
The Honda Pilot is an 8 seater...nuts!
I just really wanted this one...you can see why!:)

Happy Tuesday everyone...
I am updating tomorrow on the pregnancy!:)
33 weeks...I am getting WAY bigger...
in the belly and the BUTT!! UGH!!!!
