Hello and happy Friday! I haven't posted a Flashback Friday in a few weeks, but when Facebook brought up this memory that I'd posted on January 15, 2012,
I knew I wanted to share the post I'd written back on October 15, 2011 when I brought these two sweeties home.

Super Secret Surprise... Revealed!!
I’ve blogged about it, I’ve tweeted about it, I’ve even Google+’d the fact that I had a super secret surprise. I wanted to tell you all about it, really I did, but I just couldn’t. It’s not that I was trying to be mean. Really I wasn’t. It’s just that I wasn’t 100% sure my super secret surprise was actually going to happen, and I needed to be sure before sharing the news. Well, now I am sure... so I guess I should tell you... Do you want to know? You've all been so patient, and I appreciate that.
This weekend I was driving my car, picking up my youngest from a Bar Mitzvah (Mom taxi at your service), and the Rolling Stones came on my radio. To be honest, I’m not all that into the Stones, but I found myself humming along.
The car I’m driving is new. At least it’s new to me. Back in November, when it was time to turn in my lease, I found a 2018 certified used car with low miles that had been a fleet car. Against my oldest son’s advice of “don’t buy a rental car” I bought it. Sorry son.
I love everything about the car, but I have to admit I have not fully mastered all of the features. I chalk this up to old lady + technology. I’m getting there though. It took me way too long to figure out all the Bluetooth functions - it was complicated ok? And there were a bunch of beeps and chimes and blinks that had me searching through the manual. Turns out I have blind spot and lane departure warnings. It also turns out I desperately needed these and never knew it before.
But back to the music…
