My husband drives a sports car. I drive the family car.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love my car. It’s nicer than any car my parents ever had growing up. It’s a beautiful car.
But it’s still the family car.
Rather than driving around in the convertible I’ve always dreamed of, I drive around in a car that grows fuzzy goldfish in the backseat. The inside smells like a cross between spoiled milk and molding sea water. I know, not pleasant.
Last year when we went to Infiniti to return our lease and then lease what would be our 3rd Infiniti FX 35, I dreamed of getting this…
I know beautiful, right? Here’s the problem, aside from the price tag, there wasn’t enough room for a stroller in the trunk, and Ellie’s car seat would have had to be specially retrofitted to fit in the car. More importantly to my husband, where would he put his surfboard?
So once again my dreams of driving around with the wind blowing through my hair were squashed. Squashed like the goldfish on the bottom of my shoes.
But wait! That is not the end of the story.
I received an email from the lovely people handling Nissans PR. Nissan is rolling out the five new cars at the Los Angeles Auto Shows this week.
They just might have an answer to prayers!
2011 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet
Cute! Here’s the best part…
That’s right, there’s a backseat! I can already picture it. Ellie and I cruisin’ around top down, with our oversized sunglasses, and JT Summer Love playing on the radio. “Ridin’ in the drop top with the top down“.
When my lease is up in 18 months you might just see me driving around in this.
I can hardly wait. I’m stocking up on SPF now. Maybe this will also help with the smell.
The dream is still alive people! The dream is still alive!
In a couple of weeks I’m going to have the opportunity to preview the 2011 Nissan Quest. Nissan is providing my travel to the preview.
The LA Auto Show marks the return of the Quest minivan, with innovative styling and functionality. The next-generation Quest presents a new paradigm in family mobility. The 2011 Nissan Quest combines sophistication, security and thoughtful utility for both families and empty nesters alike.
You think they can turn me into a Minivan Mom?
