I'm a Baltimore Chevy Girl On the Go!


Cars. They've never been my thing. I wasn't the girl on graduation day who crossed her fingers in hopes that a shiny, new convertible would be waiting on the school's parking lot. Instead, I wanted a greeting card with a lovely message on how proud my friends and family were of my accomplishments...with a little dinero in it of course. The only thing I knew, and know, about cars is that they require maintenance, I spend a lot of time in them, and the letter "E" is worse than the letter "F" when it comes to the fuel gauge. However, I've changed my mind about the whole car thing in the last few days. It may have something to do with my latest adventure.
I'm a Baltimore Chevy Girl On the Go!


For one month, Lara from Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom, Madeleine from Peace.Love.Lipgloss, and I will document our experiences driving the fabulous Chevy Traverse. We will go on missions, record videos, tweet (hashtag #chevygirls & #chevyfun), and of course enjoy a hot ride while doing so. You can follow our journey by visiting the Baltimore Chevy Girls website or  @chevybaltimore on Twitter.

 The kick-off was held Friday, May 13th at WBAL-11 TV studios. It was cool having 'real' cameras recording our every move as we explored the ins and outs of the Chevy Traverse. To make sure we had all our questions answered and were well-acquainted with the vehicles, representatives from Baltimore Area Chevy Dealers were by our side the entire time.

Checking out the interior of the Chevy Traverse. Don't check out my backside though.
My cousin/BFF/publicist (<--lol), Tamara, was the best. She made the day run a lot smoother.
Here I am with my Chevy Traverse. Madeleine is in the background.

Another gift?! A Maryland-inspired tin filled w/goodies.
Here is a little behind-the-scenes action:


The day was amazing. I love it when I can meet people in real life. We spend so much time behind a computer screen, emails, tweets, and other virtual meetings, it is easy to forget how important a face-to-face meeting really is.

The day was also made possible thanks to the help of my lovely assistant, I mean cousin, Tamara. She was a trooper. She dropped me off at the station, captured all the photos and footage you see here, and kept an eye on Mariah. I love her and she already knows this.

Over the next few weeks, I will bring you more exciting videos and blog posts about my experience with the Chevy Traverse. I can tell you already that I will have a difficult time saying "goodbye" to my ride. But, I won't complain. This is an opportunity that I will never forget. I am going to make the best out of it.

Did I mention we're going to see New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys? Yeah, I said it. Don't hate!

Disclaimer: The Baltimore Chevy Girls on the Go campaign is being sponsored by Baltimore Area Chevy Dealers. I was given a Chevy Traverse to test drive for one month, as well as gift cards to pay for the documented missions. The views and opinions shared are my own. The excitement is real and I may shed a tear when I return the vehicle back to its owner.
