Kick Off The Summer With Chevy And A $300 Spa Gift Card Giveaway

(Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Chevrolet but all thoughts are my own.)

Since Junior High, my dream vehicle has been a minivan. I was one of the few teenagers who loved driving my mom’s van and wasn’t embarrassed that I didn’t have a sports car or sedan. I always thought I preferred minivans to SUVs because of all the space minivans had. I guess I didn’t realize that some SUVs are just as roomy as my beloved minivans! I didn’t learn this until a couple weeks ago when a 2015 Chevy Suburban was dropped off at my house and I got to test drive it.

This thing was huge. It seats as many as my van does but there is even MORE space! I’m in love! I worried that seating would mean limited space for suitcases or sports gear but there is a typical cargo area in the back that is roomy enough for everyday things and for road trips.

There are a ton of other great features but some of my favorite include keyless start, assist steps on the outside and a 3rd row seat that power folds flat!

A nice ride in the Chevy, sunroof open, on a sunny day and a Venti Iced drink from Starbucks is how I relax. The wonderful folks at Chevy want to give one mom a relaxing spa day and a revitalizing experience that will put her back in the driver’s seat feeling refreshed and ready for whatever life throws at her next.

    My most memorable day being a mom was on September 3, 2013 when I was able to wake up early at 7 am, but not to go to work instead to get my day started with my kids. It was the first day I was able to become a stay at home mom and work for my kids and not a corporation.

  2. Sacha Schroeder says

  4. Deb moretti says

    My most memorable day of being a mom was the birth of my first son. We finally got the baby we had wanted for years thanks to fertility treatments, a lot of bed rest, and prayers. :)

  5. Absolutely, the day my son was born and I got to see his sweet little face for the first time!

  6. Amy Mahaffey says

    Holding my daughters for the first time are the most memorable times as a mother. It’s such an overwhelming and surreal moment to first see the little one you’ve waited so long to meet!

  7. My most memorable day of being a Mom … was the day I became a Mom to my son.

    My most memorable moment was when I had my first daughter and just looking down at her and realizing at that moment I created this perfect little angel that she was mine and that my life had changed for the better! I always dreamed of being a mom since I was little and it was so surreal. Now I am a mommy of Three and I am so blessed! I will never forget that moment!

  10. Leann Lindeman says

    I have lots of happy memories… I can remember just like it was yesterday the day we brought her home from the hospital. We dressed her in a pink frilly dress. My mom and dad met us at home to help us get settled in.

    My most memorable moment was when my daughter had her first child. It was like our lives had come full circle. I now had a beautiful granddaughter who I love dearly.

  12. My most memorable day was when I got to see my granddaughter for the first time.
    Thanks for the contest.

  13. My favorite moments as a mom were the days our two children were born. Added to those days was the day our first grandchild was born six months ago!

  14. My most memorable day as a mom was when my son first told me he loved me.

  16. My first Chevy was a 2006
    Tahoe, had to sell it when I was laid off work, but it was the best vehicle for my family and long road trips to Idaho.. Wish I could afford another!!

  17. I have a lot of memorable moments, When my kids learned to walk, talk, swim and use the potty on their own are all moments I will always remember. I think being a parent every moment is special.

  18. The most memorable moment was June 6th 2014 when I went into labor early and had my second son. I remember my doctor trying to talk to me in-between contractions which were one minute apart within two hours and hearing him say that there could be complications with the cord and because he was too early that the nicu was going to take him right away and then after 3 pushes not being able to hold him. I remember praying for him and then everything finally being okay and being able to all be together in recovery. It was the greatest moment to have both of my handsome boys together.

  19. The most memorable moment of being a mom was when I was told there was a heartbeat found. I was told my three different doctors that I was having a missed miscarriage. One told me I could have a D&C and take a pill to speed up the process. I decided I’d let nature takes it’s course naturally and I had another opinion because I was still sick. I will never forget that moment when they said they found a heartbeat after all the “sorry” and bad news.

  20. My most memorable day as a mom was last year for my birthday we decided to go to a waterpark, walk on the boardwalk, and take a swim in the ocean. At the end of the day I thought about how blessed I was and how this had been my first birthday celebration that i had included the kids the ENTIRE day and I truly enjoyed every moment of it!

    My most memorable day as aunt was holding my niece for the first time. I’ve never felt such a connection before. thank you for the chance.

  23. My son’s first day of kindergarten was very memorable for me. It was great because it was a milestone as his first full day of school & he was very excited but at the same time it was really hard for me for the same reasons. Kindergarten is a lot different from pre-school and it was a lot more emotional for me to send him to the ‘big school’ than just to his half nursery programs. His first day is definitely something I won’t ever forget – he’s growing up so fast. It was hard letting go.

  24. Les Johnson says

    My most memorable day was about a year ago at my daughter’s school’s awards day. My daughter had received a couple awards for her grades and reading. But at the end of the ceremony they gave a school award to only one child for their grades, school spirit and overall kindness. My daughter won the award!! I have never been prouder as a mom.

  25. Harmony B says

    My memorable moment(s) was having my 4 boys and the first time they were put in my arms. I cried everytime.

  26. My most memorable day being a mom would have to be the day my first, twins, were born. My husband was on the other side of the world in the first Gulf War and I had been on bed rest for 5 months. I was living with my dad and step-mother since my husband had been gone for 6 months. Being handed two newborns was a wave of emotions – unbelievable joy, fear, excitement – you name it.

  27. My most memorable day was bringing my son home from the hospital. :)

  28. My most memorable day as a mom was when my daughter and son met for the first time. I was worried about how she would react, but she loved him instantly.
    I entered via twitter.

    My most memorable day as a mom was when my daughter was born on Mothers Day! She was ten days early, I wasn’t ready at all andI went into labor at two in the morning, but I couldn’t have asked for a better Mothers Day gift then my healthy baby girl!

  30. The day my daughter graduated high school. Though my job as a mother was not over, I was able to say “okay, I got her through childhood. She can take it from here.” One of my proudest moments.

  31. My most memorable day as a mom happened four days after my third child, and only daughter was born. My daughter had been placed in NICU for some breathing problems, and I had to go home without her! On the fourth day, I began having trouble breathing, and had developed an odd cough. I decided to go to the ER, where I was told that I had a rare pregnancy related heart condition, called PPCM- peripartum cardiomyopathy and was in congestive heart failure. The shock was enormous as they told me that around 50 percent of women would not make it, and usually lasted 5 years. After some time crying, I looked up, and realized that my precious daughter was three floors above me. I decided that day that the doctors were wrong, and I would fight with every ounce of my being, every beat of my heart, to see them all grow up. It is hard work, though! I definitely need a spa day :)

    my daughter is 19, so I have so many memorable moments, it’s hard to pick “the most memorable”!

    My daughter didn’t come into the world easily. I was really sick and they induced labor – no epidural, until we were into our third day of a painful, exhausting labor. At this point they decided to give me an epidural. For the first time in a full week I wasn’t feeling any pain, and was cheerfully watching Jerry Springer in my hospital bed.

    And that’s when she decided to grace us with her presence, less than an hour after they stuck me and I had just started to experience sweet, sweet relief! It was such a sudden change, I don’t think anyone was fully prepared for it, and the nurse didn’t seem particularly convinced when I started telling her in a panic that she was coming, like it or not!! The doctor arrived and a mere few pushes later, my 56 hours of labor was over.

    All drugged up and exhausted, my first thought was panic when my doctor placed her on my tummy right away. can I pick her up!? will I break her!? before I could scoop her up they took her away to clean her and do the newborn-y stuff they do. I missed my chance!

    When I finally got to hold her, she was so little, but so perfect. A few days later, we got to go home, and I was so excited! They wheeled me out to the door while her father got her all tucked into her car seat. And that’s when it hit me – these people were going to let us take this perfect, helpless little baby out into the world! They don’t know us, we could be maniacs, or idiots, or…anything!

    I am pleased to report that she survived our care, and in fact thrived, and is now a very intelligent, beautiful, happy girl of 19 years old!

  33. My most memorable day as a mom happened when my son’s teacher told me she was s o proud of him for giving his vote to his best friend so he could be homecoming King.

  34. My most memorable day as a mother was when my son graduated college, I was bursting with happiness so proud I was.

  35. steven weber says

    Im not technically a mom, but I stepped in for my mother when she passed.. I take care of the house, cook, clean, grocery shop, make dinners and lunches for my dad.. so I would say that’s pretty memorable to me.

  36. My most memorable moment was when I was told I was going to get to be a mom …. I was so excited and cried I never thought we were going to get to adopt I had been diagnosed with cancer and had to have a complete hysterectomy and go through chemo and radiation that stunk but I dont care what I received was the most beautiful little precious little girl in the world..

  37. Sherrie C. says

    My most memorable day being a mom was giving birth to my second son who weighed in at a whopping 11lbs 15oz. I spent 17 hours in labor but at the time it felt like an eternity!

    The delivery was difficult and extremely painful and I found out a short while after giving birth that I should have been given a c-section. My son ended up purple and bruised and shortly afterwards, he developed a high fever and we nearly lost him.

    He spent a week in the hospital hooked up to an IV while being poked and prodded by doctors who tried to figure out what was causing his fever before being sent home with a vague diagnosis.

    Overall, I’d say it was a very memorable experience.

  38. My most memorable day as a mom was when my son first told me he loved me.

  39. Alison Matalanis says

    My most memorable day as a mom….when I was first called “Mama” by my kids.

  40. My favorite moments are watching my boys playing with each other and seeing how happy they are, especially when playtime ends with them crawling up on the couch and snuggling up next to me for a nap.

  41. Dawn Monroe says

    There are so many great days but one I rember was walking down the isle and then watching my husband walk my daughter down the isle to give her away on her wedding day. I remember I decided to wear fake eyelashes that day, big mistake! I’m a cryer.

  42. Leigh Anne Borders says

    My most memorable day would probably be the day that my children did a “Mommy Day.” It was not Mother’s Day but a day that they set aside for me and just loved on me that day. Breakfast in bed, house cleaned, dinner, etc.. Even foot rubs. It was so sweet! They decided to do this for me after I had a terrible week.

  43. Angela saver says

    My most memorable day as a mom is the day I gave birth to my wonderful son in 1992, then again when I gave birth to my beautiful daughter in 1996! The day’s of my kid’s birth’s were by far my most memorable because I will never forget the emotions & love!

  44. The most memorable day…. That is hard. I remember being a little over 6 months pregnant with my first and he got hiccups. It was that moment when he went from being the baby to a personality…
