Our First Car... and my new blog!

I've had this blog for a while but my life up until now has been pretty uninteresting, and nobody besides Levus really wants to hear my angry ramblings and opinions!  So, because today was such a big and exciting day in our lives, I figured it would be a great day to get the blog started!  This blog is intended to chronicle our perhaps boring daily lives, but also my move to Oahu, planning my tiny wedding, and all of our adventures, travels and PCSing (Permanent Change of Station) together as a couple!  For those of you (like me) who aren't used to military acronyms... I'm going to start slowly trying to use them while also sharing the definition.  I'm using these mainly so I can learn them, because half of the time I don't know what Levus is even talking about!

Life is pretty stressful right now between moving overseas, coordinating a tiny wedding, and joining two separate lives in to one life.  Today was a big day for us, as we both accomplished some goals!  Mom and I went shopping here in Springfield, MO for a wedding dress!  The first store we went to was Vintage Vice in downtown Springfield.  I wasn't going in to this store with high hopes.  Ordinarily it is quite difficult for me to find clothing that fits me from vintage stores.  People back in the day were so tiny!  Anyway, to my luck (and surprise) the first dress we found was not only PERFECT it was also MY SIZE!  It was literally everything I had dreamed about for a beach wedding in Hawaii!  I won't be posting pictures until after the wedding (because I don't want Levus to know anything about the dress) so if you want pictures either let me know, or wait till I post pictures from our wedding day later on.  We have also selected a wedding location in Hawaii called "Eternity Beach".  The beach was apparently in a movie 1953 called "From Here To Eternity", which I of course have not seen.  I wasn't too excited about getting married on a beach (I was voting for a waterfall) until I saw the pictures of this beach...

The more exciting news of today is WE HAVE A CAR!  Levus went and looked at our car today, and it was a DEAL!  We spent about $2000 under the KBBV (Kelly Blue Book Value) and Levus even pulled the negotiation card and got them to come down on the price $100!  Even more exciting to me... IT'S A VOLVO!  The car has only had one owner for its entire life (the owner literally cried as he was about to drive off) and has been kept up meticulously (with records).
