Week of the Equinox

If you follow me on Instagram (@LinzTAW), you might have already seen my fun news for the week... a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox!


No, it's not ours to keep, but we get to drive it for seven days. Chevy's marketing company contacted me a while back asking if I'd like to do a week-long test drive. Heck yes! Super popular blogger, Kath Eats Real Food, is the only other blogger I've heard of who's done this, so I feel very blessed to have been given this opportunity!

The Equinox was dropped off Friday morning with a full tank of gas and the instructions to drive it as much as we can. We've driven it quite a bit so far and I can tell you I'm going to have a hard time giving it back! It's a really awesome car and I'll be doing a full write up of my experience next week.

Here's Antie-poo and I in the car on Friday.


Yesterday we were out and about all over town. One of our stops was to the Platt Hill Nursery in Bloomingdale. AKA, my new favorite place! I could have spent hours looking at all the plants they had, but I focused on one type: succulents. I've been wanting some for a while and we picked up quite the collection.


I've been saving the jars from Harry's Gerber meat sticks lately to use as planters. I think they look really cute with the planted succulents. We also got an aloe plant, air plant, mini cactus and a few stalks of lucky bamboo. They're all going on that little hutch I bought at the Salvation Army last month. Which I still need to take over to my dad's to get sanded before painting it yellow.

Not sure exactly where we're taking the Equinox today, but I'm sure it'll be somewhere fun. Have a nice Sunday!

  1. So jealous! That's awesome, it's crazy sometimes what people offer to a blogger :) I have never seen a car review!

    And I'm jealous of your plants, seriously... I need get to a nursery asap. My little seeds are making me impatient.
