Welcome Home Squishy the Polar Pearl!

I've decided that since it's Tuesday at 4pm, what better way to spend it than drink a cup of coffee and blog? Well, there is Oprah, but I've seen this one. So blogging it is!

Let me explain my ultra weird blog title. In less than 24 hours, I will be the proud new mommy of a brand new Toyota Highlander, who shall remain nameless (for now). Read on Bloggy McBloggersons...
You see, my sister and I are a strange pair. She recently became the proud owner of a brand new Honda CRV, which she appropriately named Baby Beluga, as it is light blue and happens to resemble a baby whale quite well. She's a pretty one. So she and I got together and brainstormed a name for my new baby. She's a beautiful pearly white. Here are a few of the front runners in no particular order:

1) Polly the polar bear
2) Stella
3) Snow White
4) Daisy (as in driving Miss Daisy)
5) Pearl
6) Squishy (e.g., Finding Nemo, "I shall call you squishy and you shall be my squishy...")

Yes, we have issues. And no, we don't care.

Feel free to throw name ideas out there. I will carefully consider them all. :)

And on a side note, I'm pretty mentally exhausted from learning everything there is to know about making a car purchase by myself for the first time. I think I've learned a lot, and I think I surprised myself in how much negotiating I was actually capable of. (I even had two car dealers playing tug-of-war with me and my car this morning competing to finalize the sale. Score!)

Here's to a big (scary/exciting) purchase and many years of good driving in my new SUV.
