My friend Stephanie asked for details. Ok, it's a 2008 Chevy Suburban 1500 w/ FlexFuel. It has so many cool feature - too many to name really. I don't even understand them all because I haven't graduated from rocket science school yet. One thing is that it changes from v8 to v4 when you're coasting and that allows you to get up to 24 mpg & save gas. It's such a smooth transition, you'll never notice a thing. I do know that it is SAFE. Like 5-star safe with all those airbags in it. The insurance companies love it. It even comes with a year's subscription to OnStar services which I love. Trust me, I'm going to need it much like this little lady. This very-well could have been me driving it up to church & back.

Anyhow, we love it and it has the heavy-duty towing pkg which is why we even bought such a big ol' beast. If you have to tow, we love the suburban which combines duty with luxury.

We did not expect for life to change so quickly this weekend but it did. I'm ever so thankful that God's timing is perfect with GM having their employee pricing deals plus the big rebate that comes with all new cars. (Angela, are you listening? Tap. Tap. Is this thing on?) If you're shopping, you may want to look at GM products. Last time they had this deal was in 2005. They have some nice hybrid Tahoes too if you want to do big & green together.

Happy Fishing!
