New Arrivals

Yesterday we bought this:




with cash! What?!? True story!

Buying a 2nd car with cash has been our BHAG for over a year now.

And its a good thing we managed it this year too... becuase yesterday I also went to the doctor... and baby #3 is on its way early this December! I got to have a sonogram (to date the pregnancy), which was nice, and baby had a good strong heart beat, was moving like crazy and is about the right size for 11 weeks along. :)

and

B. I am thoroughly impressed with your cash purchase! I don't know if I could ever be that disciplined with money.

Nice ride!! And congrats on another baby. I assume since you had a u/s that this baby is a "bonus" baby? No matter what, it will be a wonderful addition, I'm sure.

Lots of love!

Congrats Rosie!!! That is so exciting!!!

Rosie said...

actually, this baby was at least partly intentional... They did an u/s because I got pregnant immediatly after having my IUD out and I was very irregular on the IUD, so they did one just to make sure I was guessing about right. Which I was. It was probably not completely necessary, but I wasn't going to argue. :)

chapfan said...

They did one for me for the same reasons and I didn't argue for the same reasons! Who doesn't want to see that amazing little heartbeat!!!

And you guys are awesome paying cash for a vehicle! Someday I'll be that awesome. Today is not that day.... :)

So did you wind up paying with pictures of Ben Franklin or a cashier's check? I hope the advice I gave was at least partially helpful.

We paid the deposit in cash and got the balance in a check. The idea of carrying around 95 $100 bills for even a few minutes was highly nerve wracking.

I was wondering when you'd have another baby! I'm so excited for you-congrats...and congrats on the new paid in cash vehicle.

Rosie said...

I'm wondering when you're going to have your first, Nessa. :) You're nearly done with that Master's degree...

Great news! It will be fun to see what you have. I forgot to write back to your question. Our baby #3 is another boy, due mid-June.

Good job with the van. Its so nice not to have to make care payments.
