I got a new car! And engagement pictures...

So I started driving about 8 years ago and my first vehicle was a 1990 Pontiac Transport SE: aka, a minivan that looked like a space shuttle. It lasted me through high school where my friends thought it was cool because I could fit so many people in it. It lasted me through college and my 30-45 minute commute between home and the university. It lasted me through the first year of my first real job. But now, no more lasting. It's old. It's not as nice to drive as it was at first. It doesn't have a working AC. Ison really doesn't like me driving it and calls it "the shuttle", which is now it's name to me and this nice car dealer we met. And now it is back with my parents. What ever will I do to get around now, you ask? Glad you asked me that! I introduce you to Emily and Ison's new car: a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix!

Isn't it lovely? All shiny and just a year old! It was the first car that I drove when Ison and I started shopping and nothing else that we looked at really hit me like this one did.

It looks a little sporty, huh? Well, it may look small, but the leg room is great in the front AND the back! That was an absolute must because Ison is 6' 3'' and both of our families are rather tall...and we don't like to be squished in the back. The trunk is also amazingly large and fits a lot. I sure have to reach to get to the back of it!!

And me here with my new car. It is new. It is safe. It runs well. And it is mine to drive! Hooray for me and my car! :)


And now for some pictures of the happy couple. These are just a sample because we took a lot of pictures! We used Ison's fancy camera and Daisy took the pictures after Ison would change the settings.

This pictures turned out really cute! It is in the aquarium in Albuquerque. There were a lot of people there and it took a long time to set it all up and make sure that no one was coming...

The rest of these are in the Botanical Gardens in Albuquerque, which is right next to the Aquarium. This one is kind of fun because of the leaves out of focus in the foreground.

We were sitting by a pond here that was full of Koi in the Japanese garden section. Ison was teasing the fish with his tri-pod...the fish thought it was food! :)

I had to stick at least one kissing picture in here! :)

And here we wanted to show our large wing span!!

I think this one has to be one of my favorites!!

And last of all, a fun foot popping picture! And I was going in for a kiss...Daisy and Ison thought that I might fall, but I didn't! ;)

I hope that you enjoyed! I am so excited to get married to Ison! He really has been one huge blessing in my life and he makes me so incredibly happy! I never knew I could be this happy! And all because of him!
