It is back and it is beautiful. (And a day early!)

I'm falling in love all over again. I got home from work and Jake had picked up the car from Preston's. I had to take her for a little drive to get reacquainted and it was fantastic.

Just look at that nice behind...

Would You Believe, Twice in One Week!

I know the following story it just too bizarre to believe, but it really did happen.

I was SO excited to go to Delta and St. George for spring break. I couldn't wait to eat mush at my grandparents and spend time in the warm Southern Utah weather. After Jake's car accident 1 1/2 weeks ago I thought I might not be able to go since we were down to one car but he got a rental and off I went Thursday evening after work. I got as far as the Beck Street exit in Salt Lake when traffic came to a sudden halt due to rush hour and the far left lane closing. I stopped and so did the jeep behind me (although she was awful close) but to my great disappointment the Xterra behind her did not stop and plowed the jeep right up my car's... backside. I was horrified as I looked in the rear view mirror and saw my trunk standing straight up in the air. I just kept thinking, "please let my suitcase be intact, I don't want my underwear all over the freeway!". Luckily just the handle was broken, no panties in the road. The police came and after hours of reports and people examining my car, making sure it was okay to drive back to Logan, I bought some duct tape and bungee cords (since I couldn't for the life of me get the trunk to stay down) and bandaged the Accord back together and headed home. (Becca, I know that is a run-on sentence, but I don't care) I had a few tears in my eyes, mostly because I LOVE that car and she didn't deserve to be smashed like that in front of all those gawkers.
So, now we have one rental car until my car is fixed (hopefully by the 24th). The garage seems so empty. If everyone could pray that Jake will find a replacement vehicle in less than 6 months I would appreciate it.

I know, I should have been an ER doctor

The rental car (that Jake wants to jump off a cliff)

The cake I was taking to my dad :(
It still tastes delicious, even if it went flying forward off the back seat and got smashed in the container!
