My "MINI" and Me
#Monday Listicles

I am sure you noticed that I was away for last week’s Monday Listicles. You did notice, right???  *wink*  No school, summer holidays and vacations add up to late nights, lazy days and little productivity. Time to get back into some sort of routine and what better way than to start the week with Stasha’s Monday Listicles.  This week’s topic…
10 Things I LOVE About My Car!


Having recently hit the half-century…can you think of a better excuse to celebrate my late-life crisis than with a “New-to-Me” vehicle? I think not.



1.      Two words… “Mini Cooper”.
2.      It’s fun to drive.
3.      It’s got racing stripes which make it go even faster.
4.      Its color is conducive to hiding the dirt.
5.      It’s good on gas although it does take the high-octane stuff.
6.      It’s a standard so J2 doesn’t know how to drive it…yet.
7.      It has “Hill Assist” so I don’t have to use the emergency brake or burn out my clutch on steep hills.
8.      It’s roomy enough for 4 people as long as everyone is not over 6’ tall (or 3’ wide for that matter).
9.      Its speedometer is large enough to see without my readers.
10.   It’s SUPER cute and we women know just how important THAT is!!!


Don't forget to head over to Stasha's to read what everybody else loves about their cars!

    1. This is the first car I've picked since the very first car I bought waaaaay back when. Hubs was way more into cars so let him pick. This time...can honestly say I love my car! Superficial, old or both?!?!? =D

  6. Love it! I adore the colour, and that the racing stripes make it go faster. My son really wanted my husband to get a mini coupe when he bought our new car a few months ago.

    1. It's a ton of fun to drive but not really a "road trip" kinda car for more than 2 people. For that we still use have our trusty Highlander.

    1. Thanks Robbie! I'll pick you up after work on Friday. It's only a few thousand miles away right and with 2 stripes...I should be there in no time. ;P

  10. Ah it is super cute!!! My old boss who was 6'5" bought one and he fit in it. It was funny watching him get in and out though

  11. That is SO awesome that you have a mini cooper. I love them but for sure couldn't fit all of my stuff in there.

    1. It is definitely not a family vehicle. We have an older Highlander for things like grocery shopping or longer road trips. :)

    1. Would you believe I had never ridden in one before either??? I wasn't even going to test drive it but my girlfriend insisted. Ha! Hey...if you like what it looks like...what difference does it make?!?!? :D
