Things I Can't Live Without

Today I thought I would link up with Katie with Things I Can't Live a Without.

I thought it was going to be a really easy to post, but then clearly I put too much thought into it! Aside from my family, pets included there isn't much I could NOT live without, so I decided to lighten up a bit (haha) and start with saying I couldn't live without my own vehicle. 

Clearly I wasn't stepping outside to photograph my car in my nightshirt, so I will find a pic that best represents it! Now you would never know the difference, because mine is this color, year, model, etc.

And it's taken in a parking lot haha. 

Anyways, the reason I couldn't live without my vehicle while being a SAHM is simply because I would go stir crazy! I love being able to go out when I want! It allows us to do so many things like grocery shopping, swimming dates, play dates, play groups, shopping, visiting friends and family, drive to the trails, etc. Not to mention I live in a village about 15 minutes away from most of the above. Country living at its finest! I love our location but it is definitely not because of the amenities, we have all that matters - a place to get our beer and wine, a variety store, a spa and a restaurant, 2 if you count the golf course! 

It's not a location you can just walk for your groceries or catch a bus, you could get a taxi but it would cost you $40 one way. 

So having a car is essential around here, and it saves us soo much time on the weekends not having to do groceries then when it is busiest. And when the weather is bad or I need a bigger vehicle I can always take M's truck and he will take my car. 

The car itself is fully loaded with leather seats and most importantly seat warmers for the winter months and a sunroof for the summer months! It fits us all in at once, dogs, baby, husband and myself - we haven't tried putting the cats in with us, but I'm sure it would work. It would also bring a whole new level to crazy! It also has a CD player that I used for the first time, after owning the vehicle for 3 years, with Jenn to listen to the new Taylor Swift CD! 

Overall it has been a great family vehicle for us!! 

There you have it, something I could not live without!!
