Fiesta Fever

by mssinglemama on April 5, 2009

I’ve finally made up my mind.

On Friday afternoon after the voting closed for my Ford Fiesta graphics with a virtual tie between black flowers and no graphics I was still torn. As hard as I tried I couldn’t picture myself in a car with flowers (albeit cool bad ass funky flowers).

When I picked Benjamin up from school and buckled him into his car seat the first thing he said to me was, “Mommy I want flowers!”

I know my son isn’t telepathic and that he had probably just been talking about flowers at school but still – it was weird. And tie or not over 60% of you cast a vote for my Fiesta to have flowers of some kind.

So when we got home I pulled up the clean/no graphics Fiesta and the black flowered Fiesta on my computer screen. And then I asked Benjamin which one he wanted.

And it appears the universe, all of you and my little nose picker are trying to tell me something – that I should be driving one of these…

and besides how many times in your life do you get to drive a car with flowers? To hell with it, it’ll be fun. I’m picking my little Fiesta up on April 24th in Chicago.

Can. Not. Wait.

Any name ideas for this puppy?

You are right how many times in your life will you get to say your car is the one over there with the flowers?

I think you made a solid choice. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you're about to embark on…might as well make it as memorable as possible.

I like it! We got a magenta one too, went for the halftone pattern on the back wheel. Hope to see you on the road!

Love your choice. Reminds me of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine Van, so how about "La Scooby"

LOVE it! I have no idea what to name it, but how cool is it that you get to drive a fuchsia colored car with flowers on it? It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, so enjoy it girl!

Love it! That was my fave.

The first name that came to mind is Sophia.

A more exotic name that the magenta evokes for me is Francesca… Frankie for short. 🙂 LOL.

That's hilarious! I'm naming my magenta Fiesta Frankie! ("Frankie Jane Fiesta")

I vote for something "Fiesta-y" sounding. Like Jose or JuanCarlos or Pablo. Ooo Pablo… my favorite pro soccer player. Definatley Pablo.
