Weekend Getaway

I'm back from a whirlwind trip to Chicago and back.

On Friday, the BF and I visited friends in the windy city and I didn't take a picture to prove it.

Can you believe it?

Not a single photo but if you follow me on Four Square, I was all over the map. But I was in Wicker Park and Lincoln Park and visited the Wicker Park Festival, stopped a friend's friend's house, had pizza at Piece, shopped in Akira and then stopped in for cupcakes at Sweet Mandy B's. We attended a surprise birthday party a month earlier than her actual birthday and at a late-night meal at El Barco Mariscos with our great hosts for the weekend.

Then, because the BF decided not to take 90 E,  he decided to stay on 94 and delay our time even farther when we ran into traffic connecting back up to 90 E.

On a separate but related note, I wanted to share that I've been selected as part of Chevy's Girlfriend Getaway Northeast Ohio program where I get to drive a Chevy Malibu for a month. While I should get the car early this week, they are sending me on weekly excursions with my friends and the BF and I'll be sharing my experiences through my posts and vlogs on here and over here as well.

Follow me and other bloggers Amelia and Tesa along on Twitter @chevyneo and on Facebook.

So, here is the first vlog I shared where I talk about my pretty stellar driving record, which only includes one accident and a handful of tickets.At 27, that has to be some kind of record, right? (Sidenote: I totally have a nasally voice and listening to myself is incredibly weird.)

DISCLOSURE: Ahem, dear FTC:  The NEO Chevy Girlfriend Getaway Program is sponsored by the NEO Chevy Dealers and provided me with a 2011 Chevy Malibu to test drive for 4 weeks and blog/video about my experience driving the car. Girlfriend Getaway has provided me with some fun projects to do and will be giving gift cards to cover expenses.

Ummm no record. I have you beat. Sadly. 5 accidents plus 1 total loss. Only 2 tickets but I only got my license at 22. I need someone to bequeath me a trust fund so I can get a chauffeur.
