Last week an invite appeared in my inbox inviting me out to New Jersey Motorsports Park racetrack for a day of racing, driving and learning with Chevrolet. Did I want to go? HECK YEAH, I did! Before I had kids, cars, cars shows and the like were a big part of my life. I’m no stranger to spending my days at the track but they were all as a spectator. This time I would be driving some these vehicles on the track so I just couldn’t say no. I didn’t realize that I’d learn a few things about myself in addition to the cars. This event was something I can cross off my bucket list! [Read more…] about I Learned A lot About Cars and Myself at the Chevrolet Find New Roads Experience
Once Springtime rolls around , my husband and son shift their interest from lake fishing to the ocean. They love to catch stripers and bluefish and more often than not, you’ll find us at beaches up and down the New Jersey coast trying to catch the next big one. So far this year, we’ve visited about 12 different beaches up and down the coast. Each one different than the other. As much as I enjoy the beach with the kids, I enjoy the ride there just as much. I’ve always found car rides relaxing. The longer the better. Especially when you’re driving a comfort like I was in the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

One sure fire way to truly get to know a new car is to take it on a road trip as soon as you get it. Even if it’s just a few hours away, driving through a not so familiar area in a new car really helps you get to the know vehicle quickly, and in a whole new way. That’s exactly what happened to me last week when we drove the 2017 Genesis G80 to Baltimore. We planned a little getaway to celebrate my birthday and explore the Inner Harbor with the kids. From the moment I found out I was going to be test driving the Genesis G80, I started counting down the days until it was delivered.

Spring is finally here and now is the perfect time to clean up our cars from the dirt they have accumulated all Winter long. We spent a lot of time and money in our cars, so it’s important to keep them clean and looking their best. If you’re a mom like me, you know kids can be messy and turn your car into a giant mess. I don’t know what it is but more food ends up on the floor than in their mouths sometimes. Not to mention the dirt and mud they track in because, you know, every puddle must be jumped in. These five easy steps will have your car looking it’s best in no time at all. [Read more…] about Spring Clean Your Car in 5 Easy Steps
Thank you to Mazda for loaning us the 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring for the week.
Practical and stylish, the 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring does not disappoint.
If you can’t tell from all my posts, I love cars. So each time a new vehicle pulls up in front of my house for a test drive, I get a little giddy. There’s just something about jumping in the car for a ride that I find relaxing and I’ve always been that way. Usually I prefer nice open road as sitting in traffic isn’t really my thing but the kind of car your in can really make or break that experience. Thankfully we didn’t get stuck in any crazy traffic anywhere but since the weather was absolutely gorgeous for March, we did head out as soon as this car was dropped off. It was a gorgeous day and what better to put the 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring to the test than a little road trip. [Read more…] about The 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring | A Practical & Stylish Family Sedan
