What a morning! :) I am sittin’ pretty in ‘my’ new car.
As explained this morning, I am participating in Chevy’s Girlfriend Getaway, a promotion for local bloggers. I get to drive the Chevy Traverse for a month, and I’ll be blogging about it on the Girlfriend Getaway website.
After meeting with the Chevy reps, we got a tour of our cars. These crossover SUVs are INTENSE – so many awesome gadgets (like OnStar navigation, which is probably the neatest thing I’ve ever seen) and seven seats! SEVEN SEATS! That’s enough for a whole brood of imaginary children.
Suffice to say, the Chevy Traverse is already 100X more amazing than my 2002 Civic. I can’t wait to put down those seats, slip my bike in the back, and go!
Although the Traverse is great, it’s not quite as cool as this car (go Hurricanes!):
raced safety drove the speed limit back to my house and put together a really fast lunch:
I made an egg (which had 1 egg and 1 egg white) and cheese sandwich using a wonderfully soft and squishy hoagie bun. I prefer whole grains, but sometimes you just want fluffy white bread!
Plus, veggies and fruit!
The Garmin 305 Raffle
I had to end the Garmin 305 Raffle early due to technical issues with PayPal; however, the raffle raised an amazing $1,035 for Echelon Gran Fondo and the Livestrong Foundation. Thanks to everyone who entered!
The winner is… Kristin M.! I hope you enjoy your Garmin, Kristin! 🙂
Question of the day: What was your first car and how did you get it? I consider the Civic my first car because I just borrowed my parents’ cars when I was in high school and didn’t have my own. My mom actually gave it to me as a college graduation present. I earned enough scholarship money and didn’t need to use all the money she had saved for my college education. How awesome is my mom? I’ll never forget that great gift!
