Drumroll Please!!

When it came down to it, Jon is a Chevy man!! We thought about the four door jeep, but Jon has been wanting a nice truck for forever. (you can click on the pictures to see them bigger/better)
And not only is Jon a Chevy man. He is a big truck man. We had to get not the biggest white boy truck. But a BIG white boy truck we can 4x4 through the dirt and pull a house with.
Here's the cheesy "I got a new truck" look. Now let me just let those that don't know. Jon has as long as I have known him, driven old beat up, cars/trucks, windows don't work with no A.C.
He has been driving in Florida for 2 plus years with no A.C. As an example, we tried to trade in the old blazer(you can kinda see it in the background), the dealership would NOT even take it from us. Seriously we couldn't pay them to take it for us. So that "cheesy" look is well deserved. But we had to get the picture with the sunglasses. This is his "I'm cool now...do you see my new truck?" look.
And for those that think that this maybe wasn't the most practical new vehicle for a couple that has a baby on the way....we made sure you could fit a baby seat in the back!!

I'm super excited for Jon. He's never really had a new vehicle before(I told him that the one that got repo'd doesn't count)

Awwww. Sorry about the vacation. Some things just can't be avoided. Maybe an extra few days on the front end of your trip to Taiwan can be your vacation? Of course, everyone always says that they are too excited to finally have their child in their arms to do that!

Oh Ann, I am sorry! At least your husband is happy. Happy hubbies are important. You can still drive to Disney?

Very nice...that is some cool truckage. Literally, I can't believe Jon has had no AC in FL for two years. This woosie would drop over.

That is a great looking truck! I love trucks, but we live in Michigan, so they are all over up here due to the hard winters and the rural areas.

SWEET ride! And a/c is a MUST! Good for hubbie! Congrats!

Yeah Jon! You are a saint! I could never live without my a/c. I would rather go without a radio/stereo. How exciting for you both.

We used to have a truck that was just like that one and M thought it was cool too until I drove it a few times and was unable to park it without hitting the car next to me (this happened three times before we were forced to sell due to my incompetence!).

Melissa said...

ahhhhh yes, I man and his new truck - now that's pride!

Annie said...

I'm sorry you had to miss your vacation, but I'm glad Jon got a nice new truck out of the deal!
