In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

FIAT!

So....last week my Shug and I went to a couple of home tours.  
One was in Indianapolis and one was in Westfield.  
One was really old, historic homes, and the other was brand new homes. 
 I'll tell you about those later....for now, I'm going to tell you what happened on our way to those home tours.  On Sunday, we drove by a FIAT dealership.  We stopped and looked.  The $13,990 sticker got our
 attention!
 But of course, they are closed on Sundays.  So on the home tour that we went to on Wednesday, we went back and drove three cars.  We had actually driven one last year, but it was a convertible and the roof was so low my Shug almost hit his head on it when he was sitting in it.  So, we decided to try a sunroof.  Same thing.  So we tried a hard top.  Perfect.  The hard top roofs are higher.

And when I got inside the red one my heart did a little leap!  It reminds me of a 57 chevy!
 Just like homes....I love the old ones with character, but I like the practicality and convenience of new.
We decided to go to lunch and talk it over.  I said I wanted to see it one more time.  So we went back.  Here it was 2:00 and we hadn't been on the home tour yet!  We went back and looked at it and my heart did a couple more leaps!!! 

 And living in the country now, we have been wanting something with better gas mileage. 
We decided to get it!  That was Wednesday.....and the thing was.....on Sunday of that week I woke up with swollen eye lids and below the eyes.  I had assumed it was from playing with my nieces eye shadows the day before.  This was Sunday.  I know....ugly.
On Monday it was much worse.  I didn't even get a pic Monday.....But I did go to the eye Dr.  He said they were EXTREMELY dry and I somehow damaged the left one.  He said he couldn't believe I wasn't in pain, that it should feel as though someone stuck a finger in my eye.  It didn't so I was fortunate.  I got two different kinds of perscription drops and couldn't wear contacts for a few days.  And I don't have updated glasses.  Therefore, I couldn't drive.  So, we told the car dealership that we would be back Friday to get it.  We were going to Carmel to a concert on Friday anyway.
TADAAAA!!!!! 
I love it!!!!

 PS - A little infomercial here, but I want to tell you in case you are interested.  FIAT is owned by Chrysler, which is where my Shug works.   He can get anyone a Friends and Family discount.  It is not a great discount but it is better than nothing.  These FIAT's at Butler are 2013's.  Still new though.  And if you go to Butler to buy one, we get $200.00!  If you tell them we sent you.  They are offering a great deal on them.  They are small gad-about cars that get great gas mileage, so if you are thinking of getting one let me know.  We'll get you a discount and you can get us $200!  The yellow one looks just like the red on inside, only yellow....I had a hard time deciding which one, but when I got excited looking at the red one, I just knew.

  2. Oh, new cars are such a thrill. I'm still driving my little red Prius for the run around stuff, but looking forward to something just a tad more comfortable for the long trips. Here's to many new adventures with Red.

    1. This FIAT is surprisingly comfortable. It sits up high, so I think that helps. I wouldn't want to sit in the back seats though. I'd get claustrophobic!

    1. Hi Nellie,

      I totaled my car a couple of years ago and this one is the first one that I've found that 'feels' fun.

  7. Cindy, I like your little car...good gas mileage is a great plus in this day and age. I do not get excited about cars any more, that's one reason I am still driving this jeep. But you are young and should own a red car.:):)Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Hi Susie,

      I don't get excited about much either :-( But I did get excited about the car. So, you never know, there are some things that still make the heart flutter!

      As for Mom, I don't know if she'll do a post or not, but I'll ask. She is pretty private about it.
      That's why I didn't say much about it, but I had to say something because I wanted to warn people.
