We have a car payment again!

We are the new owners of a 2010 Subaru Outback. It's a pretty spiffy car, and it's much more family friendly than our current automobiles. We had planned on waiting until September to capatilize on the insurance drop Jony will have for turning 25, but the rates were so good this weekend that we figured we'd just go look and see what we could find. We got a good price. We got a good rate. So, we got a new car. Jony's old car (an 85 Mustang T-Top) is not suitable for a car seat in any capacity, and it's so hot to drive in Houston (t-top means no roof covering= smoldering, especially with black leather). Plus, he was getting annoyed with having a manual in traffic. Now, we have a car that will comfortably fit two convertible car seats (and maybe even a booster?) while having other people in the car, enough space to go on a road trip if we wanted to, and just a nice car for Jony to drive around in. He just got a raise, so it's highly deserved.

We had just finished paying off my car in February, so we enjoyed our 2 car payment-less months. It's completely worth it, though.

Here's our spiffy new car:
