New Year, New Ride

So one of the "perks" of being a GM family is that Tyson gets to drive a new GM car every 6 months. But that also means that we agree to buy or lease a new car (for me) every 3 years. I'm not complaining...

When Tyson started back at GM in June '13 - they informed him that we would need to buy a new car in 2015. We kept that in mind...but weren't quite ready to part ways with the Traverse. Then Nolan arrived...and Christmas came...and we realized that we can't fit our family of five, plus two dogs, plus all of our s#%* in the Traverse. We started hunting for something new and on January 2nd "Martha" came to live with us:
She's a 2015 Chevy Suburban and she's the perfect shade of IU red (crimson). Jack fell in love with her because of her color. Josie loves her DVD players. Nolan thinks she's the perfect only place he can nap. And the day we got her - she earned my trust by navigating the icy roads without a problem. No ditch for me, this year!

And for those non-IU people, wondering where she got her name:
This is Martha. If you want to know why we love her, just click HERE.


  1. She’s beautiful! I bet she’ll be a lovely companion for all of you. Now your family of five and two dogs no longer have to squeeze yourselves in the Traverse, since Martha’s spacious interior is more than enough to accommodate you all. Cheers!

  2. Not a lot of people like SUVs because of their hulking nature, but I guess they believe so because they don’t actually need the heft. Your family obviously does. Hope Martha helps create more happy memories as time goes by, and that she serves everyone wonderfully well during her tenure.

  3. Now with the new car you have all this great space so everyone can fit in and the journeys can take place. This reminds me of when my family was outgrowing the car we had and we then had to get a bigger SUV so we could fit everyone in. Thank you for sharing with us, looks great, god bless.
