I thought awhile about whether I should share this here or not because I'm sure some of you are going to think I'm absolutely crazy! You may remember I bought a new-to-me car in January and shared it on Show and Tell. I loved that car but my dream car has always been a Jaguar. I even cut a Jag out of a magazine to put on my inspiration board, right next to my cute little dream house with the white picket fence! (Yep, I read and follow The Secret and it works)
Well, a funny thing happened...my credit union sent me a key in the mail and said come to our Tent Event and see if your key unlocks the Mercedes and if so, you win! Well, I think I mentioned years ago on my blog that I actually did win a car before by having the lucky key so I thought maybe, just maybe, it will happen again! Anyway, I figured I would go to this tent sale early on a Saturday morning and try my key. When I got there I had to walk past all the cars they were selling to get to the place for a chance to win the Mercedes. I walked past this Jag and fell in love! The salesgirl asked if I wanted to test drive it and I said "sure"! Honestly...I had no intention what-so-ever of buying it, I just thought it would be fun to drive it! haha...well the rest is history!
I'm now the VERY PROUD owner of my dream car! I must say, I have never done anything like this...I never purchase cars on the spur of the moment. Every car I've ever had in the past, I've had for 9 or 10 years...until the cost of repairs were greater than the car's worth! I think this was just meant to be...It's a 2003 (which made it affordable for me) but it only had 42,000 miles on it and it's in perfect condition! Now I just need to get my personalized license plates transferred over.Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.
