Touch A Truck

July 18, 2011

sorry !!!!


BEEP BEEP! Ever dreamt of riding a combine, or honking the horn of a fire truck or perhaps just writing on your parent’s car? Yesterday would’ve been your day! Sunday at the Overland Park Convention Center, families celebrated the second annual Touch-a-truck event; where kids were entertained up to their eyeballs with trucks, tractors, Funky Mama and face painting! I was happy to be a presenting sponsor, allowing kids to check out some of our finest automobiles and simply just have fun!! A personal highlight of the day … seeing the Nissan Cube from start to finish after a long day of children’s artwork (erasable sharpees, of course)!


Best part … Free to the public with just (2) non-perishable food donations to Harvesters. Check out more pics on my flickr account! And join us next year!

Calling all ladies!

June 1, 2011

Let the bidding begin!

Friday night, I will be alongside Dave-O from Mix 93.3 at the Just For Her Expo. Our goal — SELL THESE MEN! Four eligible bachelors will be auctioned off all in good fun! And proceeds will go entirely to the American Heart Association — GO RED FOR WOMEN. If the men weren’t enough, they each have a ‘date package’ to share. How does a mani/pedi sound? Or an organic taste testing? Or even an night at the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens? Not only do you get the guy, but his package too! After the men are poked and prodded, you will have an opportunity to win more prizes! The 10 Live Auction Items will knock your socks off! From ‘shopping sprees’ to ‘all day pampering’ to ‘just for kids’ … there’s something for everybody! Come support the Just For Her Expo and your favorite car girl Friday night at the Overland Park Convention Center!

What did we learn from Suze Orman?

March 23, 2011
[youtube][/youtube] Tuesday, March 22nd at the Overland Park Convention Center, myself and 700 other women and men gathered around someone known as THE FINANCIAL GURU! Suze Orman is a two-time, Emmy Award-winning television host, #1 New York TImes bestselling author, magazine and online columnist, writer/producer, and one of the top motivational speakers in the world today. That’s quite a long list of things! Seeing that a focus of my blog is educating women on the car-buying process, getting advice from a financial “expert” sounded appropriate. At this luncheon, Orman focused on creating and living the NEW American Dream! With all of life’s uncertainties these days, it’s important to ‘follow a path that is right for you, to make choices that are realistic for you and your family’.
