The Houseful Buys a Car!

I can NOT begin to tell you all how I excited I am about this little beauty here.   I’m sure that you remember how last November we got to test drive the Chevy Traverse and our REVIEWS of it. Well, we finally got our own! While we did have to scope down on our particular model, we have a vehicle with enough room for each of the four Nicholes children NOT to touch! Anyone with more than one child knows the story to that.

I would like to take this time out to extend my appreciation to Connie Burke from the GM team for all of her help in getting us the information that we needed in order to make a great decision. She’s also found a way to pair GM & Social Media in a total kick butt way! Plus, she’s just a nice woman to boot! I’ve never seen someone so passionate about their brand before, and genuinely interested in talking about it just because. No frills, no gimmicks, just a true love for her company. It’s commendable.

I would also like to thank my husband in general for being a fantastic provider. Mr. Houseful went in with his game face on, and we were able to walk out with a brand spanking new vehicle! Three miles were on the odometer when we left, and the rate that we got was NOT the one we expected, it was such a great deal that I thought we were going to be Punk’d. However, we know that our Lord does not work that way. The journey to get here was long and determined, and we are grateful to just make a blip on the concern meter of God.

I’m not going to get overly devotional on you all today, but I will let you know that I felt like doing a victory lap around that dealership. The salesperson that we got was this very demure gentlemen who had much more patience than I ever would or could. If you’re in the Chicagoland area and are in need of a vehicle, just message me for his info. Roger’s Auto Group is lucky to have him. He worked hard yesterday, and there was NO condescension, or irritation, or frustration on his part in working with what WE were comfortable with. NONE.

I know that this sounds like a totally sponsored post. but I assure you it isn’t. In fact, I’m paying to post it (via a car note – hardy har har) but it’s money well spent.

When things align, and everything is okay, and you have ENOUGH ROOM in a car, it’s something not to take for granted.

    Aww, thanks so much for the kind words, Natasha! I am seriously touched – lump in throat and all. I’m so happy you’re thrilled with your purchase. That’s so important. And, it becomes a member of the family in a way, doesn’t it? You, the Mr and the entire Houseful deserve great things. We can all take a page from your book on how you keep family as the important focus in your life. Inspiring, for sure. Thanks also for the nice mention for the Rogers Auto Group in Chicago. I say go back and take that victory lap 😉

    Congrats on the new car. Yes, Connie is awesome, and GM does a great job – they get it. They truly get it, which is rare and awesome. I know exactly what you mean about needing the space in the car for the kids. My other secret besides space? Audiobooks. We go nowhere without them now 🙂 Enjoy the Traverse!

      I’m working on acquiring one more Kindle for the clan – then everyone who loves to read will have their own. However on trips, I think that it might work out okay, since the driver can necessarily read on theirs. LOL! Thanks for coming through and for sharing in my joy. I appreciate it!

Our Houseful LOVES comments! It warms our hearts to know that you're touched by something enough to say hello! We'll respond back to you! Proomise!
