This picture was taken exactly one year ago today:
That’s when we went to Appleton, Wisconsin to get rid of our only 7-month-old Kia Sorento in exchange of a minivan. The 2011 Grand Caravan is what we three chose and the color mango tango was Triz’s choosing! Not bad, as it was the brightest color we could see on the road.
So yeah, our mango tango Grand Caravan is now one year in our hands. Yay, it survived! There was only 33 miles on it when we drove it home, and now, there’s 6,400 miles already. We have a 5-year-mortgage for it but thanks to the husband, he has paid half of our debt for it already! No wonder we don’t have any savings at all because hubby has to pay more for it so that our mortgage won’t reach five years.
So far, everything is great engine-wise. It’s the space that we love the most as it can transport a lot of stuff anytime because of its stow ‘n go feature. We need another vehicle that has a bigger MPG to serve the husband on his daily commute to work but now that we still don’t have any budget, we’ll continue to survive on this Mango Tango that has served us for one year now!
Do you like scented candles? I do. Actually, I collect many of them because they are my partners in the kitchen. That’s because I need them to help me remove the undesirable odor whenever I cook something smelly so I can say that scented candles are a must have for me. I saw these archipelago candles of different scents and I am interested to try this hyacinth and jasmine scent:
I’ll see if I can get any discounts when buying from smallflower.com! Summer is soon to leave us and that means the colder season will soon be here. That would mean me closing the door and windows most of the times so there will be lesser and lesser access to fresh air from the outside. And that would mean that scented candles will even become my partner then!
