Weekend Getaway with Buick

 Lifestyle

Last month, my friends from Buick treated me and Hubs to a weekend getaway in Asheville at the Omni Grove Park Inn with their 2017 Buick Lacrosse. It was such a treat!

Just all of you, I have seen the new Buick commercials. You know the one where people are always shocked by this gorgeous new car and then ask, “That’s a Buick?” Well, I have to say, art imitates life. I knew that Buick had really gone out of their way to upgrade their vehicles, but they are even better in person. I literally asked the same question like the commercial!

The Buick Lacrosse is nothing short of luxury. When Buick dropped the car off I was excited to see it was gorgeous midnight blue color which was absolutely stunning in the sun.

The interior was just as fab – butterscotch leather seats with touch screen navigation and media. We were able to listen to music via Bluetooth and charge our phones with the USB portals in center console. So incredibly convenient for our road trip to Asheville.

Aside from the Lacrosse, our friends over at Buick also sent us to Asheville for the weekend for a quick getaway. This was perfect timing since I was wrapping up the end of my first trimester and just – simply put – exhausted. We needed these couple days off together to regroup and to have the chance to experience a city that we’ve been planning to visit was a treat.

We stayed at the gorgeous Omni Park Grove Inn which looked like something out of a movie. The staff there was so nice and the property was breathtaking. When you were outside of the hotel, it overlooked the Blue Ridge Mountains and the sunset just blew us away.

Aside from that – the food was spectacular. All. We. Did. Is. Eat. And then ate some more. The hotel has amazing restaurants – casual and formal alike – but all of Asheville takes their food seriously. Whether it was brunch at Early Girl Eatery or dinner at Vue 1913 (at Omni Grove Park Inn) everything was so delicious. And Hubs is from New Orleans which makes him very hard to impress when it comes to food. But even he was impressed.

All in all, this trip was a memorable and relaxing one. Our favorite part? The drive going to and coming back. With all the hustle and bustle of social media, day job drama and family responsibilities the simplicity and comfort of a great road trip on a beautiful summer day. The Buick Lacrosse made it that much better.

A huge thanks to Buick for lending us the 2017 Buick Lacrosse and our trip to Asheville at the Omni Grove Park Inn.

Helping people excites me. 

And no, nothing here on this site is rocket science. Just glimpses of my everyday life - what I eat, what I wear, the products I use, how I work and how I take care of myself. If that’s your sort of thing - you know, life - then this is totally the place for you.
