ban.do caddy


it just so happens that i married one of the best gift givers in the universe. andrew's gifts are always very personal, usually customized and quite often a total surprise. this gift was no different from the rest. shortly after jamie and i started ban.do, my grandma passed away, so i flew to florida for the funeral and spent a few days with my family. while i was gone andrew went and ordered me a vanity plate. it's so l.a. in the 80's isn't it? well it finally arrived and he was nice enough to let me put it on his old caddy (as i thought it just wouldn't look as cool on a 7 year old jetta wagon). now all i have to do is drum up the courage to drive the darn thing. it's a tank, or a boat, or something that makes me feel like i should be sitting on phone books while in the driver's seat. i'll keep you posted.

so sorry about your grandmother. that caddy and plate combo is about the most awesome thing ever. you also need to roll the windows down and blare some fantastically 80's cheeseball song.

Andrew would get this..... Not the bl00dy Kingswood!!! An old Aussie show. Huge heart for a man to let you mess with his caddy. Love you blog, your photo's from you hotel room in France looking out gave me inspiration for our photo's o/s. My shots were amazing, thanks for looking at life from a different angle and showing us the results. Carlo's better half.
