The Curvy Girls' Cross Border Shopping Trip in the 2012 Lincoln Navigator!

Awhile back, I organized and led a cross border shopping trip for curvy Canadians who wanted to access all the fabulous US brands that aren't available here. Let me tell you, it was A BLAST!

Aeryn, from the blog Geek With Style, hooked me up with an amazing contact who works with Ford, and they lent us a fully decked out 2012 Lincoln Navigator for our journey!!! We were travelling in high style! This SUV has so many amenities! My favourite were the step bars that automatically descend for you when you open the door, and close when you shut it, giving the body a sleek appearance.

We felt like celebrities riding in this thing, and man, were we getting jealous looks from our neighbours! We even took my in-laws out for a quick ride in it the night before Buffalo, and they were really impressed too. The inside boasts (very comfortable) all-leather seats (which can be heated or cooled to your liking), wood finish trim, in-dash voice activated navigation, a THX stereo system, individual climate control, and seating for 8. Not to mention how awesome it looks from the outside! Here are some pictures of our amazing ride and some pictures from the trip itself. You should definitely consider a Lincoln if you're in the market for a new car.

All the ladies who came along were very excited when we came to pick them up in the Navigator, and were all really impressed with how spacious and comfy it was. We had quite an intensive day of shopping, as you can see!

I can't remember ever having laughed so much in one day. I think the people at Olive Garden, where we had dinner, were just about getting ready to kick us out because we were laughing so much, but we just couldn't help it! I had such a fun time with these ladies! And Peter made an excellent chauffeur. All he was missing was the hat! Oh well. Next time, lol! 

We had to return the car the next day, which neither Peter or I was happy about! We just loved having the Navigator. This GIF pretty much sums up Peter's reaction to giving up the Navigator and getting back into our dinky 2007 Hyundai Elantra.

Man: Have some fun with that truck. Okay, time's up. Hands kid cardboard cut-out truck. Here ya go. That's a nice one, I made that.

Kid: It's a piece of junk! I want the red truck.

Man: Well, you can't have the red truck. See, that was a limited time only offer. It's right here in the fine print. 

Kid gives perplexed look.

Many, many thanks to Ford and Lincoln for lending the Navigator to us! We had such a fantastic time!
