New Wheels

After a few test drives and much debate (and believe it or not, 0 fights), we FINALLY did it... We bought a new car! Our choice? A 2012 Kia Sorento EX.  Not only was the price right, it's beautiful.  Complete with push to start, back up cam, bluetooth, voice recognition AND lots of storage.  While having all the bells and whistles is a nice perk, storage space is not a want but a must with us.

Here she is...

Bye bye Merc.  It's been nice knowin' ya.

On a sunlight note, Anchorage is now getting about 17 hours a day.  Sun rises at 5:30am and sets at 10:30pm.  Safe to say it's our alarm clock in the morning.  I can't even count the number of mornings I wake up in a panic because I think I'm late for work.  We not only wake up earlier, we also go to bed a lot later now too, before the sun.  Let me tell you, blackout blinds don't always work.  (However, this may also be due to the fact that we have become addicted to Mad Men and watch a couple episodes on NetFlix every night before bed). I'd love to say we get 17 hours of sunshine a day, but that's not so much the case.  Just because the sun is up and it's light outside, doesn't mean the sun is shining. The weather has been kind of crappy lately - Mid 40s and dreary. Not the spring I envision.  Those couple days of sunshine last week were a tease, it makes you so happy and then the clouds roll in, crushing your mood. Mr Sun, please shine down on us again.
