Tomorrow is a bit of a mile stone for me—I’ll be getting on an airplane all by myself, like a big girl! I’m not much for flying. At all. However, I have occasionally flown with the hubby. This time, though, he’ll be parent-in-charge while I attend the Ford’s Driving Green Technology Event at NAIAS on Monday & Tuesday.
I’m thrilled to be joining fellow green, tech and lifestyle bloggers from more than 10 countries—how cool is that?! I’m also pretty excited to have the chance to get behind the wheel of some of Ford’s sustainable vehicles. From fuel efficiency to recycled denim fabrics, we’ll be seeing their eco efforts up close & personal. It should be an interesting couple of days.
If you’ve got questions for the Ford team, let me know—I’ll do my best to get answers for you. We’ll also be sharing info & tips from Ford executives and the green & tech teams throughout the even on Twitter, through the hashtag #FordGreen. I’ll be checking in around here throughout my time in Michigan as well.
The 31 Days to a Better Budget series will continue daily (barring any technical hiccups), and I’ll be back next week with new grocery deals & more money saving ideas.
I was invited to participate in this program by Clever Girls Collective, Inc. in partnership with Ford and Ogilvy PR. Ford Motor Company paid for my travel and accommodations at the 2-day Driving Green Technology event, I was not compensated in any other manner for my time. My opinions posted here are my own.

That sounds really interesting. One of my friends who was an early adopter of hybrid cars traded his first hybrid, a Civic, in for a new one from Ford.
