Last week was one amazing week for this Philadelphia-based mommy blogger! For one glorious, wonderful month, I get a much needed break from my soccer-mom-mobile! Now, don’t get me wrong, my minivan has served it’s purpose in our family, but I AM THRILLED for the opportunity to try out the Chevy Traverse with it’s similar passenger hauling capabilities to our minivan, but with MUCH more styling and amenities! How do I get to try out a brand new Traverse, you ask?
On Wednesday morning, my husband and my youngest daughter escorted me to the CBS 3 studios for a Launch Event to kick off Chevy’s Philly Mom’s Time Out program. This program, put together thanks to the Philadelphia Area Chevrolet Dealers, is giving a 2011 Chevy Traverse to 5 area Mom Bloggers to test drive for an entire month! We’re being given these vehicles to experience as busy moms and share our perceptions of how a car like the Traverse can help an active family on-the-go.
Joined by my fellow Mom’s Time Out Mom Squad members Danielle, Debra, Jacqui, and Kim, we spent some time getting acquainted with all of the bells and whistles that our Traverses would “WOW” us with. Then it was time to head upstairs to the Talk Philly studios where we were interviewed by none other than Philly’s beloved Pat Ciarrocchi. Click here for a clip of our interview!
Over the next 4 weeks, Chevy will be sending us on various missions to see how the Traverse can work in a busy family’s lifestyle. I am really excited to put this baby to the test with my 2 kids, our dog, our various errands, class schedules, school dropoffs, my busy work schedule and living our fun, if not a little chaotic lives!
A special thank you to Kelly Chevrolet in Phoenixville, PA where my Traverse (that nice looking one pictured above!) is being loaned from. These folks have been so accommodating and attentive to every detail that our busy family needs and we’ve really appreciated all of their care and support!
Come back regularly this month and see how the Traverse is working for us and also learn more about some great sweepstakes that Chevy has lined up for you to tale part in!
