So what happens in my house when my SO turns 30 and becomes a J'man within a month of eachother???
You buy an insanely expensive car that's what =p
We are now the proud owners of a 2010 Shelby GT500 in Superman Blue and Red!!!
Ford only made 18 cars just like it in 2010. That is pretty spanky!
Though in weird car logic this car (rarer and 11 months older) is $20,000 less than the newer (but much more common) 2012's that are coming out in a few months. And why do the 2012's come out in the early part of 2011 anyways?
I'm not a car person. I can't drive a standard. I feel my little 1997 red hatchback is more than adequate.
But (much to everyone's shock) I just ran through the numbers with him, and then agreed that it was doable while maintaining a large cushion every month.
...And maybe I also negotiated an equal to car payment Reno Budget for the new house...
It does put the Wedding plans on hold, but that also gives me longer to shrink into my dress. I can zip it to the waist and a bit higher, but the bust is HOPELESS. I still need to lose 4" off my bust/ribcage. We will see how that goes. Likely I'll need to take the waist in too once I lose the weight because 4" off my bust means about 6" off my tummy.
