What Guys Want #SummerOfGroupon

This post brought to you by Summer of Groupon. All opinions are 100% mine.

Life flies by too fast, so my husband and I agreed that when the opportunity for something really fun on our bucket list comes up, we should just go for it. He said if we ever hit the lottery jackpot, he’d want to buy a Ferrari, and would love to just drive one around at a super fast speed one day, just to have the experience.

I found a deal on Groupon for half off a high-speed drive in a Ferrari or Lamborghini at Gotham Dream Cars, where you can basically pick the super-expensive, luxury sports car of your dreams that you want to drive (the type of car my husband would never own unless we hit the lottery), and surprised him with it. I’d say he was pretty thrilled (to say the least).

While the rest of us watched, my husband raced around a track multiple times as fast as he dared, and each time he passed us we saw the biggest grin on his face as he sped past. Gotham Dream Cars photographed and videotaped him for posterity, while we relaxed in the makeshift bleachers area provided by Gotham Dreams, with shade and water bottles and lots of excitement among those waiting their turn for their thrill ride.

His first words after it was over: “Yep, I’m gonna buy this car if I win”.

And then he bragged to his friends at work that his wife got him a cool adventure (I’m the cool wife 🙂 )

We were invited to participate in Groupon’s blogger campaign to experience our best summer ever, and it really is. It’s so much fun to see my family enjoying themselves, doing things they’ve never tried before, and more to come…visit the Summer Shop here.
