A Bitter Sweet Day

Today is definitely bitter sweet...Sean and I just sold our truck! We decided it would be better for us financially to only have one truck payment, and to get a car that gets good mpg for when we move out. Getting into this house is number one on our list right now! We know it was the right thing to do, but it is still kind of sad.

This was a huge sacrifice that Sean made for us...This truck was his pride and joy and he worked so hard to get it! We even included it in some of our engagement pictures.

Isn't it funny how you get attached to your vehicle? Now we are on the hunt for a cheap gas mileage car, it will be interesting to see what we find!

Happy Wednesday friends!

aww I'm sorry I know the feeling we go back and forth with my husbands truck (which is also his pride and joy it's the same kind of truck but Black and 4 doors.) They def. don't get the greatest gas mileage and when you live far out you wnat a car with good gas mileage because you drive a ton and put a ton of miles on your cars hehe. Now we are back at not trading it in and just waiting. He goes back and forth a lot!
Good luck finding a new car/truck! I get so attached to my car too I don't want to sale it but sooner or later we'll be trading it in for a bigger car once we have kids.
It will get better!!! Have you heard anything on your house?? March will be here before we know it!!!!:-D I'm excited for you guys!!!! and praying you hear great news about it and it will be your house!!!!!!

My husband would be the same way with his Subaru! But what an awesome man for sacrificing for you and your future family :)
