a gremlin joins the family…

I married into a family of classic car nuts, and I love it. A part of me always wanted to sell whatever sensible Honda I was driving at the time for something with more character, but seeing as I have absolutely no mechanical abilities, that was never a good idea. (I still drive a sensible Honda!)

Brian and his parents have amassed a collection of fixer-uppers from the 50’s and 60’s but a couple of months ago, this 70’s gem joined the family. It’s now at it’s permanent home with my in-laws but we got to enjoy cruising around in it for a few weeks. It even had a pretty good AC (pretty necessary in Phoenix!), unlike Brian’s daily driver!

Today I’m breathing a sigh of relief because my online summer class is officially over! It was the only gen ed class I didn’t have to transfer from my previous bachelor’s, and although the subject matter was interesting, the 16 week material crammed into four turned out to be a thorn in my side everyday. Whew! I’m taking a workshop this weekend and then summer break officially begins!

Well my friends, I hope you have a fun weekend! Any plans?

    I love your top! That is a badass car. I love the gremlin emblem. My family loves classic cars. My dad almost got me a Chevelle for my first car. Classic cars just have so much more character but they do lack the comfortable features of new cars like awesome AC and such.



  3. That car is so awesome! I love old cars. I drive a stupid ford focus, but I’ve wanted a Volkswagen bug forever! I really like not having a car payment, but once this guy dies I am getting a bug!! Your skirt is suuuper cute! Congrats on finishing up your summer class. I liked taking summer classes because you can get them over with so quickly, but it’s so much information in such a short time!

    I love your shoes and necklace! And that car is too cute. I think all of my dream cars come from the 70s’ or earlier.

    Welp, this is dreamy. What an awesome family to marry into, Lisa! It’s kinda how I feel about my in-laws having a pool. haha

    This is too cool for school Lisa:) I can only imagine how fun it would be to drive a car like that. You lucky gal! My hubs doesn’t have a mechanical bone in his body…ha! Your little blouse is as sweet as they come and I love the creamsicle color tones you’ve paired with the summery yellow. Wouldn’t I just love to raid your closet:)

    Painting a room in our house is on tap for my weekend. Happy Friday darling gal! xx Marisa

    I love that cute fish necklace, dear! :) You’re so cute! I went estate saling this weekend and found a ton of great dresses but they all are tiny (i.e., your size!). But I did get a few great pieces for my kitchen, including some pyrex fridgies. :) My first. :) I hope you had a great weekend!
