The End of an Era

Today Nick sold his car...and while part of me is happy and relieved (now we won't have a car payment or expensive insurance) the other part of me is sad. This was HIS CAR--his baby! We both joke that one of the reasons I went out with him was because of his sweet ride. It really is/was a cool car and I loved riding around in it but due to the adult responsibilities of marriage and finances, we decided to sell it. After 2 months of being up for sale on KSL, he got a phone call this morning and then wham-bam it's gone. I was at work so I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye. Today is the end of an era, no longer is Nick a member of the coveted Subaru club. No longer will we get "totally awesome car" comments from teenagers at the drive-through window. No more engine roaring and races at every red stop light and then the joy at seeing the face of the defeated driver. The money left over will be used to buy a more "practical" car like a corolla or a's going to take Nick some time to adjust. Fortunately, I took some pictures of Nick and his car before we posted it up for sale.


Last night Nick and I went to see Odyssey Dance Company's Thriller show. It was the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit. We were amazed at the talent and enjoyed the creepy, spooky and fun dances. There were a few dances that were a little too dark (I get scared very VERY easily) for my personal taste but overall we both LOVED IT! They even did a Michael Jackson tribute, which was AWESOME! Before, during and after the show some of the performers were dressed like zombies and wandered around trying to scare people. I didn't get any pictures because I was running away from the zombies (they were creepy!) but here is a video of the highlights.
