We finally have our Element

For those of you who are tired of hearing Gabriel and I talking about getting a Honda Element someday in the future, that day is finally here! We bought ours last Sunday, just in time for all of our holiday travels.

Our trusty Civic finally topped 200,000 miles, and although it runs great and probably will continue to do so, some parts are bound to start breaking down. It was also getting pretty cramped with all the baby necessities... We'll be posting an ad on Craigslist for it soon (we're sticking with just one car since that is all we really need).

When we found this Element, we knew it was the one for us: It is a 2006, but only has 13,000 miles on it. It's still under warranty from the dealer. It had been on their lot for awhile, so we bought it for less than the dealer had in to it.

So, it has already been to Iowa and back. We're up to 14,000 miles. There'll be plenty more to come!

Here it is covered in snow in Iowa.


  1. oh. my. goodness. I bet you are so excited! This will make for a much more comfortable trip to San Diego - maybe even luxurious!

  2. How exciting!! It's always fun to get a new car! Let me know how much you want for the Civic so I can pass the word around. There's a guy at my work who's looking.

    Also I applaud anyone who keeps on purchasing in this economy. It's what we need! :) Thx for doing your part to get us all back on track!
