NEW Car = NEW Stuff

This weekend has been all about the car:
Yesterday I went out and got an AUX cord so that I could listen to my ipod without finding a Fuzzy station.  So. Exciting.   
I have always been the girl that has NO air in her tires and gets spoken to by my dad or my boyfriend.   My excuse is that I don’t often go the left side of the car.  My new car has a light for low tire pressure. FANCY!!  Of course it was on yesterday. . . so I thought I can fix this . . . (I had never put air in tires before)  I got out the manual and figured out how much air my tires needed to have, then I tested each tire.  Turns out they are suppose to be at 32 and one tire was at 10.  I went to the gas station and it took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to add the air to the tire.  I finally was successful got the tire to 32.  However when I got back in my car the light was still on???  I thought, “Guess I can’t fix this by myself?!?”  I got in the car and headed home.  AND as soon as I pulled out of the gas station the light turned off!!!  WHAT A GREAT FEELING!!!  J 
Now I want to order a new license plate for the front of my car.  I got my first plate from
This is the license plate I had before:
I’m trying to decide what I want now???  Do I want a plate that looks like this?
Or like this???

I'm thinking I like this but I want to add some silver dots too!!
I’m also trying to decide if I want a black plate.  I think the letters and dots show up much better on black but I’m not sure if black will be too much on my dark car.  Let me know what you think!!!!

Agh, I'm so jealous!! I want a new car, especially one that doesn't rain on the INSIDE when it is raining outside!! Ha! I like the third choice plate best, but they're all cute!

Good job putting air in your tires!! It is scary the first time you do it, and the whole warning light not turning off is deflating, until it does! Nice job!

Go for a black plate with the polka dots! That will be really hot for the new car! :) I have one that is hot pink with black that too!

Congrats on getting your hands dirty at the gas station to get your tire pressure just at the right level. I love the second plate design, since it looks hip and easily visible!

All of them looked great, but I like the one in the middle. That would make your plate more noticeable outside, and the light-colored background is funky as well! =)
It would be great if you share your choice. I want to see you car too!
