Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Mercedes Benz

Hello Friends, we have a new addition to the family!

On Wednesday, we welcomed a new little bundle to the family, it’s name is Spark, Chevy Spark. When Tayair pulled up the driveway I almost cried, it was the cutest little car I’ve ever seen. Not quite as small as a “Smart Car” but just as cute and compact as the Volkswagen Beetle was back in the ’30’s.

The 2002 Hyundai Elantra that Malik was driving began acting up, even after a replaced engine, the brakes and rods began to go and it just nickeled and dimed us so it was time to get rid of it, we will donate it to Goodwill.  We decided to hand down the 2005 Honda that was purchased in April and then get Tayair a new vehicle.  My husband had visited Diver Chevrolet last week and thought the Spark would be the perfect car for him, one that would get him from Point A to Point B and would last for many, many, many years!

Not having purchased a new vehicle since 2005, it was amazing to see all the bells and whistles in this basic car. I thought my friend’s Mercedes was loaded with amazing features but this little Spark was also equipped with some awesome controls, including Sirius XM Radio, Bluetooth, 9 airbags, USB outlet, touchscreen infotainment system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and an emergency communication system (OnStar 6-month free trial).

I didn’t realize it was a 4-door, and squealed with delight when he opened the back doors, so cute and surprisingly comfortable with ample leg and head room.

The trunk was a bit too small for me and there isn’t a spare tire, instead an air compressor and a can of “fix it flat”, but with OnStar just a push of a button will get you emergency service.

This vehicle will be in the family for a long time to come and I can honestly say that it’s a welcomed addition even with the car payments!

Hello Friends, are you having a fun day!

Do you remember as a child spending hours outside running and playing games all day long?  Laughing, yelling, sweating and imagining, making up the rules as you went along, just plain fun.  What were some of your favorite games, I remember some of mine were:

Hello friends, I hope that you had a great weekend. I cannot believe that tomorrow is the first day of October…where did September go? The weekend was uneventful but I did clean out my closet and put away the summer shoes. It’s unbelievable that there were this many shoes in my closet!

I also removed a lot of clothes and next week will be at the Flea Market selling them for $1.00 a piece, anything not sold will be donated to Goodwill. I didn’t get a chance to post Thursday or Friday’s outfits so here they are.

Saturday night Malik went with a friend to a Homecoming Dance and was excited to be riding in a Mercedes, which belonged to Mike’s mother – I wish I had a Benz! I didn’t ask, but wonder if they coordinated their attire with the car – lol!
