A New Car & 52 Weeks of Love!

As I mentioned yesterday, Derek and I went car shopping....for him!  Believe me, he deserved a new car for sure!  We actually bought the first car we test drove.  His stipulations were leather seats and as much horsepower as possible for a sedan-typical man right =).  My only stipulation was that it was kid-friendly-typical woman thing right.  He ended up with a 2009 Acura TL!!






On another note...I'm guest posting for Team Pancakes today!


She has started this amazing series called "52 Weeks of Love" where married couples share experiences / lessons from their first year of marriage!  I am looking forwarding to reading every Thursday!  You can find my post here!

Elle Sees said...

Headed there now! Buying a new car gives me hives!

Kristin said...

Oh my god my heart is seriously breaking for you. I don't even know what to say. I lost my mom at a young age so I know what its like losing a parent, it NEVER seems real. I still can't believe she isn't here. If you NEED anything, just ask. I will be praying for you.

Amber said...

It looks like you disabled comments on your last post but I just wanted to tell you that I am SO sorry for your loss and that I am thinking of you and praying for some peace and healing for you. Your dad sounds like an amazing man, who fought a very hard and long battle but with such a brave face.
Lots of love sent your way!!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

My heart goes out to you Katie! Hope you find comfort in the love and memories you shared with your dad! It's a long road so definitely take your time! Virtual hugs!!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I know you turned off your comments. And I totally get it. I always turn them off on posts regarding my mom, but I couldn't not say anything.

My heart breaks for you and your family. What a beautiful post in memory of your dad. I just know he's looking down, proud of his miracle baby...and he always will be. During all those moments you mentioned, he will be there. Believe me, I know it's not the same, but he truly is always with you now.

Hugs and prayers friend!

Mrs. Mama said...

i know i cant leave a comment on your newest post... but i just had to tell you that im thinking of you, that post was absolutely beautiful and the love that you have for you father is so amazing.

Sean Marie said...

I am so so so sorry for your loss. I don't know if it's too hard for you to receive sympathy comments and if it is then I am sorry but it brought me to tears. I know it's a little weird to have a stranger cry for you but the story is just too moving and that last picture of you guys hugging just struck a cord in my heard. I really, really hope you are staying strong.

Sean Marie said...

*in my heart

Kendra said...

I totally understand why you took the comments off on your beautiful post about your father, but I wanted to say how touched I was reading it. A father/daughter relationship is irreplacable.

Mrs. H said...

Katie just wanted you to know that you and your family are in my prayers. I know you didn't want comments but your post really really moved me and made me take a look at my own relationship. Lets just say that post changed my life. Probably won't be able to explain but wanted you to know that. I'm sorry for your loss.

Jazz said...

Oh my. What a beeee-a-uuuutiful car. Absolutely love the inside! And the colour too.. and the style... I think I love all of it. Great choice!

(I am also extremely sorry for your loss, sending lots of love)

Jazz said...

Sorry to add another comment, but just read your 'about me', and your house is looking amazing!

Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights said...

I am so so so so sorry about your dad. You are in my prayers. Much love!

Brittany said...

I am so sorry about your dad, I will be praying for you and your family!
