Rocking My Minivan

August 13th, 2009 in Life

I was talking with someone on Twitter about how I wished I could rock my minivan. A part of me died when I bought the minivan–actually I like to somehow blame all my life’s problems on it. (I know, I really need to get over myself.)

So I just wanted to show how WE rock OUR minivan, which to be honest drives fantastically, gets fabulous gas mileage and has a lot of room. Darn you, minivan.



And the music? We like it LOUD, blaring loud so EVERYONE can hear Ramona on tape because you know everyone wants to.

How do YOU rock your minivan? By the way, if you don’t have one I don’t want to know about what awesome car you DO have….seriously.

    I think I have seen a mini-van similar to this. It also housed 2 little girls! I must admit, the tagging makes it a charming vehicle!

    I love the custom paint job on the outside! It’s super hot. I only have one kiddo, and I’m spoiled, so I get to drive my reasonable dream car – a Lexus IS350.

    I loved this post. Because I died when we bought ours too. And I still hate it…but love it. Glad to know I’m not alone in that regard. ;) Okay, what do you use to color your car…because I seriously want my boys to go to town on ours.

    We have an awesome, no-power-anything compact car with three car seats in the back. Aren’t you all jealous? I will not be sad when we can finally afford a mini-van. :)

    I hope that your van looks like that every single day cause if I get a minivan it would need some good artist working on it so I could bare to drive it. I love it!

    Eh I’m a guy and I drove a minivan for a while. I didn’t mind it so much except for the huge blind spots on account of passengers in the back. It was actually the same van as yours (its got great pick up for those times when you “need” it). I’d rather have a huge SUV but since I can’t afford one of those a minivan is going to be pretty sweet when I can afford/need one.

    My husband hates minivans and so do I. I have one baby and I am swearing right now that I will never own one.

    I love the paint job, hahha! Do you get ‘weird’ looks from others for it? I think it’s awesome.

    Rock that minivan, girl!

    Just happened upon your blog from Jana’s. Love it! I have 3 soon to be four babies, and TOTALLY rock my minivan. hahahahaha, except ours is more beach sand, food crumbs, baby accessories, wiggles music, and dents on the outside from my son deciding that he needed to take a file to the hood and “fix” it. *sigh*It is newer though, and WHEN I wash it, it looks pretty darn good. :) I hated getting it in the first place though. I DID NOT want to be the young, “oh wait she has a minivan”, old/young soccer mom. But it’s been alright. I told my hubby after I graduate from having kids, I get my truck back! Woot woot!
