Meet Lucy

Goodness....it's been a week again! It seems I stay too busy to create or do anything blog worthy recently. Life is good though so no complaints from me. I do hope to find some time in the near future to craft or create something though! I haven't even done much thrifting lately either. I do want to introduce you to Lucy today though! No...I didn't get a new pet or anything like that, but, as some of you may remember me mentioning, I did get a new vehicle. And....here she is!


I just love her! I had been driving a 2001 Ford Expedition for the past 11 years and it was giving us a little trouble, had a lot of miles on it and was just too big for me since my kids are grown up now......so, we decided to go ahead and upgrade. I bought this pre-owned  2014 Chevy Equinox LT. It is so nice and like brand new....even still smells new! Here she is from the back. My education license plate even looks great on her.


Here's what the plate looks like...:)


She's a girly girl with her gold bow. I just love it....gold is my favorite metallic as you may know.


Here's the inside. I am thrilled with all the features she came with....back-up camera, blue tooth, OnStar (if I subscribe), and many more. The blue tooth is so nice and saves me having to use my hands and take my eyes off the road to dial my cell phone. I just press the button on the steering wheel and give it a command and it dials for me. The radio stops playing and the person I am talking to is on the speakers. So cool! Oh...she gets great gas mileage too...something my old vehicle did not.


Here's a shot of the trunk area. It is very spacious. I have a can of paint there that I have to exchange...got the wrong kind. Hopefully we will get back to working on the house soon. We really want to finish the living and dining room trim and doors before the holidays.


I think my favorite thing about Lucy is that she lights up in aqua blue at night! If you know me at all, you know I love aqua blue! She was made to be mine...:)


I ordered a monogram to put on the back glass. I was just going to get my initials, but while browsing Etsy,  I found this apple one for teachers. I fell in love...:) I ordered the gold glitter and it is perfect!


Here's a close-up...:)


I wish I had something more to share. Hopefully soon! I do plan to run to the thrift store before my Dr. appointment tomorrow after school. I've had a $10 loyalty card filled up for over a month, just waiting to spend it. I only hope I find something on my list or something I need since I am trying to be much more selective in my buying. If I get something good, I'll share soon! 
I pray each of you has a blessed and beautiful week. 

Until next time.....

  2. Lucy is lovely! I love you dressed her with a gold glitter apple with your initials. I have not driven this model because my 1996 Blazer may get jealous. I do hope you get to shop - I am missing your finds. Keep the kinders in line. Have a great week.

  11. Congratulations on your new toy! She's beautiful, and I understand completely about Bluetooth. I had it in our Lexus, but when we moved to the cabin full time we sold it and while I don't miss the car, I DO miss Bluetooth. Would you believe it's still legal to talk on your cell while driving in Massachusetts? Nevertheless, I don't like doing it.

    I'm only posting once a week now also Vicky. I thought when I retired I would post more, but the opposite happened! lol Life is for living, not for sitting hunched over a keyboard every day 😉
