I'm a Chevy Blogger!

Yesterday I proudly kicked on my mom shoes and wore my badge of honor, as I marched into CBS studios in Philadelphia to claim my place as part of Chevy's Mom Squad.

Who me? Yep.

Why you ask? I have no idea.

But they picked me to drive around this beautiful top of the line, fully loaded Chevy Traverse LTZ for 30 days and blog about it. Rough job. I know, but somebody's gotta do it.

With my husband, my mom and 2/3's of my kids in tow, we entered the CBS studios, rode the elevator and were seated in the green room to await our segment. My 3 year old looked at me and in dramatic diva fashion, put her hands on her hips and asked, "Where's the car?" OK. I was thinking the same thing too, but something wasn't right. Where were the other moms?  We had to be in the wrong room. So, finally a producer came in and directed us to the right area. As we entered the conference room, I was greeted by the nicest, funniest, coolest group of bloggers a blogger could know. There was Kim, fromChubby Cheeks Thinks, Shannon from Philly Burb Moms, Jacqui from Single Mom's Retreat, and Debra from Lucas's Journey with Sensory Processing Disorder. We had our 3 minutes in fame, as we were interviewed by Pat Ciarrocchi on Talk Philly. 

And apparently I wasn't the first one in my family to meet Pat. My 3 year old, who treated their long spacious hallways, like a track and the newsroom her play room, literally ran Pat in the hallway and introduced herself. 

We also filmed a commercial for the program, we were treated to lunch and given a personal tour around the Chevy Traverse by Stan Esposito of Reedman Toll Auto World, in Langhore Pa. I was so excited about all the cool features and that they were going to let me drive away in this car for a month that I forgot to video Stan, or the car. But he's great and really knows his stuff.

As far as the car is concerned it's beautiful, I'm trading in my "mom-mobile" for the month and jumping in a nice ride. It is equipped with everything a mom could want and much much more. We're talking about Bluetooth, On Star, heated and air-conditioned seats, a navigation system, DVD player, two sunroofs, a rear back up camera and much more. All I have to do is blog about it, go on missions and with the help of my traveling circus test out the vehicle and let you know what I thought. 

When I jumped in my car and drove away, I wiped my brow as I looked behind me to make sure Ashton Kucther didn't jump out and yell that I was being punked and I enjoyed the quiet and the luxury the Traverse has to offer.
I might sleep in it tonight, watch a movie, talk on the phone, now that's a time out.

In the mean time, I hope you'll join me on this exciting fun  journey as I explore the Chevy Traverse.And I'm not the only one winning here, there are great prizes you can enter to win enter, you can log onto the Philly Mom's Time Out webpage and enter to win a trip to Jamacia, from now until November 30th, log onto Facebook and "like" the Philly mom's Time Out facebook page and register to win a $500 American Express gift card to purchase a designer purse of your choice and if you live in the PA, NJ and DE area, they are giving away a ton of great daily gift cards. And there's more, between November 1st and December 18th visit your local Chevy Traverse Dealership and test drive a Chevy Traverse and receive a $40 Spa Finder gift card.


And if you're not interested in any of this, at least check back to see how the Traverse can handle my motley crew.

Case in point, here's a video from the day before we picked up the Traverse.

The Philly Mom's Time Out campaign is being sponsored by the Philadelphia Area Chevy Dealers who gave the chosen bloggers a 2011 Chevy Traverse to test drive for one month and blog about our experiences using the vehicle. Philly Mom's Time Out has given us some fun missions to go on and and will be providing us with gifts cards to allow us to do so.


  1. Are you a single mother attempting to find scholarships? If that’s the case, you

    much more than likely already understand how mind-boggling it could be to balance

    being a mother while pursuing a career. But really there is not much to worry

    about. Fortunately, there is a great deal of resources offered which exclusively

    appeal to single mothers who necessitate monetary support to be able to further

    their education and future.If you just know where to look.
