The NY Auto Show Girls Night Out Party

Last night, Raphael and I scheduled a late-night babysitter (or second time ever) and headed to the New York International Auto Show for a Toyota and She Buys Cars Girls Night Out event. We enjoyed cocktails and a show floor tour before the massive event opened up to the public.

Granted, Raphael isn't a girl, but he still enjoyed the event and it was fun remembering how over eight years ago we had went when we were only dating. Also, he used the up-close show floor look as a chance to pick out his next ride i.e. the non-family car.

As always, I enjoyed chatting with other lovely bloggers and guests, check out the following selfie with actor and fashionista Lizza Monet Morales.

Also, the lovely Vera Sweeney (one of the first bloggers I ever met almost 9 years ago now) took this amazing group selfie (go go gadget arms!):

It was also the first time in awhile that I got tipsy and it felt good, as did the chair massage that I received at the Toyota booth:

OK now let's talk cars. First, we checked out the latest edition of our Toyota Highlander and then ogled the FT1 concept car from Toyota, which will probably not be on the streets for another two years or so. Super hot, right?
We were then wow'd by the ELR, a luxury hybrid electric car from Cadillac with its paneled grille plates and sleek design.

While at show I took Dr. Oz The Good Life Magazine's Driving Safety Quiz. I got all the answers right except for the first one:

The least germy spot in your car is... 
your radio dial
places where you spilled food,
your steering wheel
your door handle

Apparently it's your radio knob, which I thought would be quite germy. I also learned that you can boost your reaction time by 10% by chewing a piece of gum while driving. Interesting.
