Several months ago I was approached by the Chevy #KeystoSTL program through Alive Magazine inviting me to be a part of their campaign. Of course, I was stoked to be a part of it. I got to check out their booth out at the Color Run this summer. I watched other STL influencers get their turn to drive a Chevy. Some got the Malibu, Some got the Volt… but deep down inside I kept hoping for my ultimate dream car… and all that hoping paid off! I was going to get a 2012 Chevy Tahoe for a week!! If I could do a backflip, I would have.
I don’t know what it is about the Tahoe that has always drawn me in… it was big and powerful, as well as functional. A thing of beauty! Yesterday they delivered the Tahoe to my house. I couldn’t even wait for them to knock on the door, I ran out to meet them!
Ah yes- that is a Shiny Beautiful 2012 Tahoe in MY driveway. I immediately started checking out all the features. My favorite so far? Heated AND Cooled seats! These are perfect for the cool early morning drive to CrossFit (heated) and the drive home after a good workout (cooled). It also has a heated steering wheel, that would be awesome throughout the winter.
We had to go out to lunch so we could take if for a test drive. We ended up at St Louis Bread Co, a classic St Louis Staple (all you out of towners might know it as Panera Bread)
Another feature of the Tahoe that I’m loving is the Rear Vision Camera System! Backing out of the parking spot at Bread Co was a breeze with the camera.
We ended up taking it out for another spin to the bank and to grab Dinner from Sombreros – apparently it is supposed to be legit TexMex. I thought it was ok, but nothing like what you get in Texas. God Bless Texas.
This morning I was excited to drive the Tahoe to CrossFit, even if it was 4:40 am… I love the automatic lights (mine are manual) and the heated seat was comfy on the drive there. I also rocked out to the Coffee House station on XM radio. I really do love having that option of XM Radio. Commercial Free music rocks!
This morning at CrossFit our strength session was Clean & Jerk. Remember my October Goals? One of them was to Power Clean 95# – I’m excited to say not only did I Clean 95lbs…. but I jerked it also! PR BABY! Obviously it was because I drove there in the Tahoe… and because I was dressed like a highlighter in my WODink Shirt and Zensah Sleeves.
I’m excited to try out some more new places around STL and visit some of my favorite places again this week while driving the Chevy Tahoe. I’ve also added a St Louis link to my sidebar so you can see all the places/things there are to see and do here in the STL.
Any places you think I should visit in the STL area? What is your dream Car?
