My SheCon’11 Road Trip with the 2011 Buick Enclave!

by Carrie with Children with 28 comments

Next week I’m hitting the road for sunny South Beach and the SheCon’11 conference!  I’m excited to tell you that I’ll be driving in style with a 2011 Buick Enclave, courtesy of the General Motors Southeast division.

The 2011 Buick Enclave is a beautiful, luxury crossover vehicle and I was surprised to learn that it seats seven comfortably and has three rows! And since I’ll be driving solo this trip (no kids!) and have no idea where I’m going once I get to South Beach, I’m thankful that the Buick Enclave is equipped with OnStar Turn by Turn navigation.

This car is so fancy, my husband is wishing I’d invite him to come along for the SheCon’11 conference.   No deal!  He’s staying home with the kiddos – this is a “mom only” trip!  Maybe if he’s lucky, I’ll let him drive it around the block when I get home.  Maybe..depends on what the house looks like when I get home!

I’ll be tweeting throughout my adventure with the #BuickEnclave hashtag (don’t worry, there will be no tweeting and driving..promise!)  So be sure you’re following Carrie with Children on Twitter too!   Going to #SheCon?  Find me and let’s explore South Beach together in my fancy Enclave!

Also, follow GM Southeast on Twitter and check out their Facebook page too.  They host some great events throughout the Southeast – maybe they’ll be in your city soon!
