I'm in love with a Ford....

I must confess my love for Red, my new Ford Focus..I know he's a car but I think we are true soul mates. Here's our story -

We met about a month ago at a well lit dealership (cuz you know you shouldn't meet for the first time in a quiet area)...my husband was with me so I had to be discreet. It was crowded but our eyes met over all the other cars and BAM..... it was love at first sight...sigh.....a little black stallion tried to get in his way, but RED was persistent, I just couldn't tear my eyes away.

So, I headed back the next day, alone, to sign papers and bring him home to momma! He has nothing but my best interests at heart. He's nothing fancy by any means (my kinda guy) but he's got this fabulous bright shiny red hot suit on (that's the way I roll), sunroof, Sirius satellite radio, Ipod jack, and he can zip around town like nobody's bidness.....AND get this.... he's getting 32.8 mpg!! GET OUTTA TOWN YOU SAY.....What???? 32.8 mpg!!! Scuze me? 32.8 mpg!!! One more time y'all....32.8 mpg!!! Go BIG RED!!

Here he is, RED, in all his badness....

Look at him, Isn't he lovely, Isn't he wonderful, Isn't he precious, Less than 5 weeks old, I never thought true love would be, Making one as lovely as he, But isn't he lovely made from love....

Can I get a woot woot????!!!!

You SNL Spartan Cheerleader fans will appreciate this cheer..of course I changed some words...

P.R.E.T.T.Y You ain't got no alibi!
You're pretty! Hey, hey you're pretty! Woo!
R.E.D You can't take my R.E.D. away!
You're pretty! Hey, hey you're pretty! Woo!

Go Ford!

  2. I love it!! I used to have a silver Focus (not near as fancy as yours) and I loved it and it was great on gas mileage...but it doesn't hold four kiddos well, so I had to trade it in and get a van...boo hoo, I was so sad!

  4. I hear turn-about's fair play...what about that sweet lil thang Mr. Mom brought home over the weekend? Mmm hmm, he's just tryin' to even the score.

    Just remember you BIL is a minister and his marital counseling couch is available 24/7.
    I'm feelin' a little spiritual guidance is coming your way. :)

    And by the way...you're a DORK!

  8. Very very cute!!!! Love that he has Sirus Satelite and an iPod jack. My lovely car will be paid off next September at which time I will start looking for a new car so that I can give it to my daughter.
    Hoping that my situation will be a little better and I can afford something a little newer and as cute as he is.!!!

  18. Very Funny. I drive a white mini van. My dad says it looks like an ice cream truck. I like to blast a little einstein cd and roll down the window to see if kids will come running with their piggy banks. :)
