Car shopping

We are still up in the air with what to buy, but we had so much fun on Friday when we test drove the Mazda 3, Nissan Murano and Nissan Pathfinder. I really liked the Mazda 3 it's so cute and it had both standard and automatic. But I fell in love with the Nissan Pathfinder. It is really big and of a lot of space for us, but I just love the 270 horsepower and it drives like a luxury car. O man I really want that one. Rich likes the smoky gray color and I like the pearl white or silver. But the price is a little bit high. If we get it without all the fancy stuff we could save so much. I'm not sure what we plan on doing but I think we will save up some and buy our new car by April. I think we will use the savings and tax money for a good down payment and get a lower monthly payment at a good interest rate. I want to save up at least 4 or 5 thousand by April will have to be pretty tight with our expenses these next few months and after Feb. no more payments to the apartment and that will help out big time. Feb first we have to pay rent and mortgage so we will have a pretty tight budget. Rich and Mianna went to the commissary yesterday and I must say it feels so good to have food in our new fridge. I'm having a technician come out tomorrow to fix the water dispenser in the door since it's not working properly. This fridge is so cool I love it. I kind of want a bigger one, so we have 30 days to keep shopping and decide on taking it back and trading it in for another. Our space can fit a much bigger side by side if we like. Anyways, I better get in the shower and get ready for work, I have to run to Comcast and the post office before work to make an address change.

I like the pathfinder too! Murano is nice too though. Both nice mid size suv's.
Good luck making a choice, lol =)
