I Won

by Meghann on September 17, 2010





Leftovers at my desk. Le sigh.


Ever tried cutting eggplant with a plastic knife?





Ft Lauderdale

Remember the Chevy Girls on the Go promotion I was involved with last May?

Let me refresh your memory. 😉

Well, part of the promotion was to encourage readers of the Girlfriend Getaway Blog to enter for a chance to win a ‘Girlfriend Getaway for Four’ by voting for their favorite blogger in the promotion. On the flipside the blogger who won the most votes also got the prize.

Well, guess what?!?! I won!

I’ve actually had the prize in my hands since June, but this is the first weekend it worked in our schedules to make the trip down south. Woop! Woop!

The prize includes two two nights stay at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Ft. Lauderdale, two rounds of golf, two spa treatments, and a gift certificate to the hotel’s on property restaurant – Aizia.

In full FTC disclosure this is a free trip, but all opinions will be my own.

The trip includes 2 rooms. Which means Derek and I will be in one room and we’ve invited my sister and her boyfriend, Anthony, to join us for the second room. The girls will have spa treatments on Saturday (after our 20 miler no less) while the boys will be playing golf on the ‘internationally renowned’ golf course. Sounds like paradise to me. 😉

No I’m just counting down the hours until we hit the road.

See ya at the beach!

Why did you feel that you had to share that you and Derek will be sharing a room, while your sis and her boyfriend will have the other? Seems silly. But have fun.

Enjoy!! Just remember to follow your own advice and do not get a pedicure – you’ve spent way too much time training for Chicago.
