Thanks to a generous inheritance check from my Grandma who passed away last October, Steven and I were blessed with enough money to fulfill two of our dreams. 1. Get a car, and 2. Plan a trip to NYC.
The search for a car began months and months ago as I started looking on ksl and craigslist to see what was out there. However, we neither one of us knew much about cars and hadn't looked seriously until mid-January. Then, armed with advice from our parents and friends we began the search.
Irish luck must still be with us, because within just a week we had found the perfect car for us. We bought a 1998 Hyundai Sonata from a mechanic in Provo for just $1700. It is AMAZING having our own vehicle! We still take the buses to school every day, and I'm still planning on riding a bike to work in the summer, but having it for our grocery shopping and date nights and errands and cold-weather work has been a MAJOR blessing. We feel really good about our decision and so grateful for being financially safe and smart.
Thank you Grandma! We love and miss you!!!
