Two changes

We have now officially moved and added a car to the family!

This is super belated. I always planned on taking pics with BA and I outside our door and with our new car but we never got around to it :(

About five months ago our previous landlord came to us saying that he wanted to start renting our condo to singles. I have to admit that my heart broke a little bit. We lived in the condo about 2 years and have loved it. I really feel that it was the best condo to ever exist, plus we bought all of our furniture to fit it. After I got over the sadness, I went to work. A few weeks later we found the new place we call home. I don't love it quite as much as I loved the other place but it is closer to work and school and (and it's a big and) it's the same complex that Summer and Steve live in. It's been super fun to be so close to them. I'm sure Steve's loved the times when I've been over late being crazy with Summer :)

third place we've called home

Bryan's had Thin Liz (94 Toyota Camry) since he got home from the mission. He bought it from his Grandma Liz (hence the name Thin Liz). She's been a good member of the family, but we decided it was time to have two cars. We decided to follow the tradition of naming the car after a grandparent - so to finish off the Harrisons we introduce Studly Scudly (07 Toyota Camry). As you can see we're fans of Toyota Camrys!

When I wrote this post about 3 months ago I said: It's been really great having the convenience of two cars, but I do miss the pick-up and drop-off service that Bryan has been providing me (I don't think he misses it quite as much as me though!)

Now as I'm updating the post: Thin Liz decided she needed a little break. Bryan was driving her a few weeks ago and she didn't sound too good. We haven't had her checked out but Bryan's dad comes in a few weeks and we'll have him take a look. I was a little nervous when we first bought the new car. I wasn't sure I liked the idea of making monthly car payments. I'm glad we decided to take the plunge or else we would be without a car. It's funny how things work out.
