New Ride

So I really wasn't expecting this to happen so fast, but Josh and I just bought a second car! We bought my parents 2006 Scion tC. We got an amazing deal on it and we feel like it was a great investment. We mainly bought it because our first car, a classic 97 Buick LeSabre (aka The Grampa Car) just hit 100,000 miles, and it's a freakin gas guzzler. Definitely not a good commuting car. Seeing that we'll be living in Mililani and be commuting to Laie for school, and town for Josh's work, we obviously needed to downsize. The Scion has a manual transmission and it's smaller with only about 45,000 miles on it. We hope it'll last us at least all the way through Josh's schooling. It was so exciting when we got approved by the Credit Union for our first loan. Although it'll be kind of a burden to be adding another monthly payment to our already tight budget, I know we'll get by and it'll be good to start building some credit. :)
