Chevy Girls on the Go

by Meghann on February 24, 2010

Look what I got!

A 2009 Chevy Traverse and for the next 4 weeks its mine, mine, mine. :)

I look good with silver, don’t you think? ;)

Last Friday I had mentioned I was selected as one of Central Florida’s Chevy Girls on the Go and as such Chevy is providing me with the Traverse to drive for the next 4 weeks. They will also be covering all my gas expenses as well as a few other surprises along the way. ;)

Starting Monday I will begin blogging about my experiences with the Traverse on the Orlando Girlfriend Getaway website. I will be sure to post a link to those posts on my blog so you can follow me on my Chevy adventures.

I’ve only had the car an hour and I am already having fun with it! :)

MANY THANKS to Ryan and Caitlin for picking me up from work and taking me to WESH to pick the car up this morning. These ladies ROCK!

I was actually pretty excited we were picking our cars up from WESH. I am a morning news junkie and watch channel 2 news every morning before the Today Show comes on.

Some of the morning news anchors were actually still in the news area as we were passing by. I felt like a huge nerd as I was exclaiming “OMG is that Amy Sweezy?!?” :)

We sat through a presentation and signed some paperwork. Then a product specialist from Cecil Clark Chevrolet was kind enough to give me a quick breakdown of the car.

I think I’ve got all the nifty features down now. Can’t wait to use them all!

Picking up the car was a longer process then I had originally intended. By the time I got back to the office I was starving and more than ready to break into my lunch.

The key to brining lunch to work is LOTS of tupperware containers. :)

I heated up the last of my lavahs bread in the office toaster.

And had a sampling of dips to enjoy the bread with as my meal.

Zucchini and Squash.

All enjoyed while working away at my desk.

Hi Meghann!

Sorry for such a random question..but I know you’ve said before how many calories you usually eat a day but I wanted to know if you could estimate the breakdown per meal? Like breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner? Just a random estimate…I know everyone is different but I just wanted to know if you eat more calories in the morning like i do etc. Thanks so much!!!!

I bring a TON of tupperware to work, too. People always comment on my huge lunch bag, but really – it’s all plastic!

Love the car – you’re going to have so much fun!

And I love your white shirt – it’s very pretty!
