Bar-B-Que Food Fun Part I

by Nicci on 06/14/2011

I was asked to participate in Chevy ‘’Driving the Heartland- BBQ Tour’’ this past weekend. I’m talking food, and fun which had this ‘’foodie’’ loving every second.




All mine for the whole weekend…can you believe it??? I

was told a Chevy vehicle would be delivered to my house on Friday afternoon. I wasn’t aware of the model of vehicle until the Event company left me a voice mail message, that I had to play back FOUR times in order to make sure I was not dreaming.

Participating bloggers were all given a different Chevy vehicle to test drive.

We met up Saturday afternoon to sample delicious Texas BBQ…lots of meat, around Dallas. Our challenge was to use the OnStar features on our vehicles; guess each clue given to us, then using OnStar head to the next dining location.

Our first stop was Sonny Bryan’s BBQ , the Original location, in Dallas.

One of my best friends, Kirstyn, joined me for this adventure.


Sonny Bryan’s fed us giant, crispy onion rings.


I had no problem eating a second ring, after trying a rib and brisket.

Everyone enjoyed the smoked sausage, ribs, brisket while sipping on sweet tea.


I’m talking delicious, finger-licking Southern food!

More to come….

Do you like BBQ, what’s the best BBQ you’ve ever tasted? I love family cookouts and my grandmothers ribs!



Yoga on the Texas Rangers Outfield

by Nicci on 07/11/2010

If I had a ”bucket list” I could mark off: Yoga on a baseball field!! I may need to create my bucket list now.

Chevy  invited me out  to another fun event on Saturday: Chevy Women’s Yoga Series.

Remember back in March when I participated in the Chevy Girlfriend Getaway;  I do miss test driving the Malibu.

My best friend Kirstyn joined me for ‘Hot Yoga’ on the outfield, sweat was dripping before we even started.  Kirstyn’s sister works for Chevy, so she came out for yoga too.




 Delicious fruit and yogurt bar after Yoga.

Not to mention a great swag bag: free yoga mat, water bottle, keychain… plus free tickets to a home game. 

I’m ready for that home game later this month with Chris, he was stoked about the free tickets.

What fun things happend to you over the weekend?

Cruisin Down to Central Market

by Nicci on 03/29/2010

This past Thursday, I accepted the Chevy mission to cruise down to my local Central Market in Plano, Texas for some shopping.  Chevy provided me with a little shopping money, which came just in time for my monthly grocery trip.

Shopping + Food = Happy Foodie

I invited one my girlfriends, Kirstyn, to come along with me on this shopping event. We both have busy schedules so we did our shopping later in the evening.

My favorite department of Central Market was the produce department. They have a wide selection of fresh produce.

We spent some time with an employee showing us around every department.

We even sampled the Fermin Iberico Ham, wopping $179.00 a pound….Whoa.

Best tasting ham I’ve ever had in my life!

After three hours of fun, we loaded up the Malibu with our bags of goodies and headed home.

Kirstyn and I are already planning another trip to Central Market next week.

I went shopping with Kelsey and Trinity over the weekend too.  More fun pictures/video to come from that adventure.

Chevy Girl on the Go

by Nicci on 03/21/2010

I can’t explain the excitement I’ve felt all week long, waiting until Friday to meet with Chevy reps and pick up ‘my’ brand new Chevy Malibu!!

I’m participating in the Girlfriend Getaway for local North Texas bloggers.

Each blogger was given a beautiful new Chevy Malibu. This BEAUTY is all mine for the next 4 weeks!

I met with Chevy reps to sign paperwork and then all the bloggers headed outside to learn about the features of the Malibu.

 Starting Monday I will blog about my experience test driving the Malibu on the DFW Girlfriend Getaway website.  I’ll be sure to link to their site from my blog too.
