Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I have posted but today I’m so excited to share that I bought my very first Jeep Wrangler! She’s a 2024 4WD Sport, and yes I said she, because she’s like a whole person with attitude! lol

A Funny Story
One of my favorite things to do since I moved to Los Angeles, is to drive around early in the morning to get a view of the scenic mountains in San Fernando Valley. It’s so pretty here that I love to go out and explore, just because LA is huge and I am still learning my way around.
One morning about three weeks ago while exploring, I somehow ended up at the Jeep Dealer. It was closed so I thought there is no harm in looking around. Well let me tell you there are so many models and colors that by the time I finished looking it was time to open. I wanted all the Jeeps so I came to my senses and got back in my car to leave.
As I was leaving, a salesman walked up to me and says “Hi there, I saw you looking. Would you like to test drive one?” I was stunned because it was like he appeared out of no where! haha “I was just leaving, and I don’t see the color I want on the lot” I replied thinking that I had outsmarted him.
Then he says “Come inside and have some coffee and I’ll go get you whatever you want.” He was so nice, How could I say no? Besides a little test drive would be fun and then I will leave I thought to myself.
What got me to the dealer was this commercial!
The Best Salesman
My salesman let me pick out the model I wanted on the computer and then he had to go pick it up on another lot about twenty minutes away. As I waited patiently inside the dealership, I still had the thought in my mind that I would only be going on a fun little test drive.
I looked outside as he suddenly drove right up to the window with the most beautiful White Jeep Wrangler I had ever seen!
Immediately he started laughing because he saw my face as my jaw dropped. I was in love! I somehow knew that from that moment she was mine!
“Come on lets go for a ride!” he said. The funny thing is that he was just as exited as me! It turns out that he was already on his third Jeep and being a Jeep Salesman was his dream job. There was never any pressure from him to buy, just pure fun! It was like hanging out with one of my best buddies, and that’s how they get you! lol
That’s why I called him the best salesman, but the truth is that Jeeps sell themselves!
My Dream Come True
If you are a little older, you may remember the movie Clueless from 1995! If you have never seen it, it’s a great comedy! I was obsessed with that movie back then. The California lifestyle, the clothes, the cars, and you guessed it.. The Jeep! I have only been dreaming of owning one for almost thirty years!!
This movie is still Iconic and so are Jeeps! I feel like a teenager again because I every time I drive it I have the most fun!
Introducing “Snow White”
The whole day that I got her is still a blur, and the next thing you know I was signing the paperwork. The last thing the finance manager asked me was “What are you going to name her?” I laughed and said “I don’t know yet! “He says I know, name her Snow White!” And that’s how she got her name! Then my salesman said “Now take her home and play with her!” haha
Jeep Wranglers are common here in Los Angeles, and one of the best things to do is take it to the beach. This was her first trip to Santa Monica. These Jeeps sit really high up so you can see California’s amazing coastal views even better!
Oceano Dunes Pismo Beach
Another cool thing to do is to visit the sand dunes at Pismo Beach. I plan on taking her on my next free weekend.
Getting Ready For Halloween
There are so many great ideas on how to decorate your Jeep for Halloween in the Facebook Jeep groups! It’s a whole lifestyle, and some of the ideas are outrageous but I wanted to keep it simple! I ordered the Cute Ghost, Skeleton and Broom stickers from Amazon!
Follow Your Dreams!
I always encourage people to live their best life, set goals and follow their dreams! If you have a big dream such as moving to a big city, starting a business or something as simple as buying your dream car, just do it!
Even if you are afraid. It may take years, but nothing feels better than having a long awaited dream come true! My favorite quote is “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” That’s because it’s true!
I speak from experience because I was truly terrified to move three thousand mile away from a small town to a big city such as Lost Angeles. It took some adjusting but I have no regrets! Not only am I having a great time but I’m learning and growing wiser with each new life experience! I hope you will do the same!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading!
