Yep, I've Got a Minivan... and I Love It

I should be ashamed of loving an ugly car this much, but... I'm not

Let's be honest: Most people don't dream of growing up and owning a minivan.

That includes Yours Truly.

But we found ourselves in a situation--one many of you can identify with, I'm sure. With our third baby on the way, we were out of room with our SUV, and we needed something that would not only fit all the kids, but would also make our lives a little easier.

Enter... The Minivan.

In her natural habitat

It even fits my stroller when I forget how to collapse it

I'm not gonna say I'm the most stylish lady pulling into car line at pickup, but I am going to say I am the most comfortable. The TV screens, the built-in vacuum, the sliding doors... It's actual heaven.

Blankets and garbage and crumbs, oh my!

The trusty vacuum, tucked right into the side panel

So next time you're feeling a little down about driving around the "mom mobile," just know you're not alone! We're in this (amazingly comfortable, albeit not that stylish) ride together!
