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. πŸ™‚


I look good with silver, don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ™‚

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 β€œOMG is that Amy Sweezy?!?” πŸ™‚


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. πŸ™‚


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.


I can’t believe the day is already halfway over and I have so much to do! Better start crackin!

you keep saying “lavahs bread” and i’m wondering if you mean lavash bread? or is there some other type of bread that i’m not aware of….?

16 Meghann February 24, 2010 at 4:02 pm

Its actually lavah without the ‘s’. That’s a typo on my part. Sorry!

I’m not sure which I am more jealous of: your Mediterranean lunch or the new car….

33 Matt February 24, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Have fun with that car!

34 Amanda February 24, 2010 at 7:26 pm

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!!!!

35 amanda February 24, 2010 at 8:02 pm

you win some pretty awesome things!

have soooo much fun sporting around in your new car for the next few
weeks. how lovely.

45 adaywithoutapples February 25, 2010 at 2:54 am

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!
