What a morning! :) I am sittinâ€™ pretty in â€˜myâ€™ new car.
As explained this morning, I am participating in Chevyâ€™s Girlfriend Getaway, a promotion for local bloggers. I get to drive the Chevy Traverse for a month, and Iâ€™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 â€“ so many awesome gadgets (like OnStar navigation, which is probably the neatest thing Iâ€™ve ever seen) and seven seats! SEVEN SEATS! Thatâ€™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 canâ€™t wait to put down those seats, slip my bike in the back, and go!
Although the Traverse is great, itâ€™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 isâ€¦ 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 parentsâ€™ cars when I was in high school and didnâ€™t have my own. My mom actually gave it to me as a college graduation present. I earned enough scholarship money and didnâ€™t need to use all the money she had saved for my college education. How awesome is my mom? Iâ€™ll never forget that great gift!
