Because I trust you…

by mssinglemama on April 2, 2009

And because I wouldn’t be driving this car without you,

I’m letting you all (yes, you) pick my new Ford Fiesta.

Here are my favorite options from Fiesta Movement Mission Control. [Note: one of the options is NONE, just to make that clear – I don’t have to have graphics on my Fiesta but there will likely be something like stamped on the back, so why not go all out?]

Choose my car by voting in the handy dandy poll at the end of this post.

You can only vote once! So choose wisely. This is my car we’re talking about people. Oh, and Magenta is my car color – no flexibility there.

And remind me sometime to tell you the story of how I had to sell my dream car after I left my ex-husband. Somehow, I can’t help but feel like the universe is sending me a nice big karmic thank you.

Pick away. [Be good to me, please.]

Option #1: No graphics. Simple, sweet, elegant – just my style. Or is it? Hmmm…


Option #2: I am a flowerly bad ass so kiss it.


Option #3: Benjamin’s favorite but he’s only three! He has no common sense. But I kind of like it too.


Option #4: I’m a subtle flowery bad ass. Don’t get in my way or I’ll squirt you with flowerly bad assness or my son’s boogers – whichever we see fit.


Option #5: Let’s make love, not war (in a subtle way).


I honestly can’t decide.

Whatever graphic you choose I’ll be happy on the inside because check it out – LOOK at the inside of this car. See the rest of the car’s photos here. It’s all jazzed up with auto controls, blue tooth, MP3 hook-ups and it’s a stick shift. WOO HOO. Watch out everyone. I may hit you trying to figure out how to use all of these fancy schmancy boy toys.

Some details about the Fiesta Movement – because I only know a few:

  • Benjamin and I will have to complete monthly missions in our new Fiesta. I can NOT wait for these because I thrive on challenges, missions, whatever you want to call them – they make my world go round. And of the 100 agents, I think I’m the only single mom which means I’ll be the only one completing each mission with a 3-year-old in tow. SCARY but EXCITING. Wow. Just not sure what to think of all of this.
  • Outside of the missions I am expected to use this car daily for my real life missions which means I’ll be looking at those graphics (if you choose one) for the next six months.
  • Be nice.
  • Don’t worry – my blog will be back to normal soon enough. This has just been THE craziest week ever (in a good way).
  • I’ll be picking up the car soon (can’t tell you exact details yet) but soon enough.

The big question:

Can I really complete all of these missions solo with a three year old in tow? Should be interesting… here’s an excerpt on what the missions entail:

As a Fiesta Agent you will explore the worlds of Travel, Technology, Style & Design, Social Activism, Adventure and Entertainment through access and content brought to you exclusively by your monthly Fiesta Missions.

Isn’t this exciting?

Benjamin is going to have so many new memories… now – which car should he have them in? If you are just tuning in and don’t know why I’m driving a Ford Fiesta read this post.



It’s a tie! Darn it.

The whole point was to have you guys pick for me. So here are the results (at 3:00pm Eastern time on 4/3/09).


I have two hours to decide. I am leaning toward clean because I a few people (in the flesh) have told me drivng a car with graphics around is a HUGE “no, no.” My first gut was to go with clean but I’m all swept up in the fun spirit of this car and just torn as hell.

I’m have to get back to work now (lest I get fired) but I’ll be pondering while I work and will update you on my decision as soon as I come to one.
