So I know it's pretty vain to be writing about this, but I just can't help it, I'm TOOO excited! My grandmother and grandfather took me car shopping today, yes car shopping. They let me know that it was solely my decision on what I wanted and I could pick any car, as long as it was a reasonable price of course, for them to get for me. YES, you heard correctly, they bought it for me!!! So, I chose a used car (for payment reasons, of course) that I thought was perfect. First of all, there's a little story behind it.....

A younger guy had come to the dealership (Mike Patton Auto in LaGrange, GA; I HIGHLY recommend them if you need a car) requesting an '08 Ford Focus SES (the sport edition), black, alloy rims, decked out...stereo, chrome trim, 6 disc c.d. changer, spoiler, sun roof...etc...Well, at the time the dealership didn't have one on the lot, but they offered to find one for the guy. 3 days later they called the guy back to let him know that they had found his "dream" car and that it was waiting on him at the dealership. The guy was having to go out of town and couldn't come by to get it. Well, the dealership told him that if he put down a deposit on it, they'd hold it for him until he got back. The guy REFUSED to put a deposit down, so the dealership put it out for sale.
So, here we come today...I see it and I'm in LOVE! They had a red one as well, but it was all stock and I just LOVED the black one WAY too much! So.....THEY BOUGHT IT FOR ME! I drove it to work tonight and it is amazing! I still think I'm dreaming....It even has lights that come on with the headlights on the interior that CHANGE COLOR!!! AH!!! Ohmigah...sorry this entry has been so shallow, I just have never had anything this nice and I'm so excited about it, I had to share it with all of you =)

I'm so thankful to God EVERY.SINGLE.DAY that He blessed me with such amazing, caring, and giving grandparents. I'd be out of alot of things without them. I thank them, and God, so very much!

Wow! Congratulations on your new car! What a stroke of luck, haha! Sounds like you went car shopping at just the right time. You made the right choice in buying a used car instead of a new one. You definitely saved a whole lot of money. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your car! Take care of it, and it’ll take care of you. Have fun!
