Dave Ramsey Would Be Proud

For the past 9 days I have been enjoying some vacation time. I spent five days in Texas visiting some great family friends and then returned to finish out my rest and relaxation.

Amid the remaining vacation days, I have:

  • Wrote several blog posts for work and my personal blog including the Dangerous Prayers series.

  • Answered very little Blackberry messages

Perhaps the best thing that happened to me during this vacation is…I got a new (used) car. My car was in the shop and needed a significant amount of work and it was finally time to breakdown and get something to replace it. My mechanic, Brent (Bennett Automotive), had a 2003 Toyota Highlander that a couple was looking to sell, and I was the lucky recipient.

My New Car – 2003 Toyota Highlander

The best part of the deal…it’s fully paid for. I was determined to pay cash for the car, because I did not want (or need) any car payments. Dave Ramsey touts in his book The Total Money Makeover to get a new, slightly used car that you can pay cash for so that you do not have to make car payments.

For me, this is a big win. This is the first car that I have not had to take out a car loan for or make any sort of payments on. The new car will allow me to cart my photography gear around, throw my bike in the back or cram five people into the car. The owners took immaculate care of the car.

I am incredibly blessed to have this new vehicle.
