A special adventure with GMC

You might remember a little 700 mile adventure 
 I have talked about before on my blog.

One that involves a whole lot of junking
on the worlds longest yard sale,
Habitat for Humanity,  
and a big surprise.

The adventure that starts in Michigan and is about 700 miles long.

 Not just 700 miles of roadway,
we are talking 700 miles of YARD SALES.
Yep, this is one big vintage and bargain paradise 
that spans from Michigan to Alabama.

And we are driving chic GMC Acadia Denali suv's and junking the whole way.

But this is not just a group of bloggers getting together for fun. 
Though we definitely do have a lot of fun. 
This is about something that is much more exciting.

Something I am SO excited about having the opportunity to do again. 
Something that is a heart-warming, happy tear all over the place 
kind of thing that is such a blessing 
to be a part of.

You see, after all the junking is wrapped, the money is spent, the treasures are tinkered with
 and we finally pull into Georgia - 
we have a secret mission. 

There is a family in Georgia that has no idea that GMC and Habitat for Humanity have brought 6 bloggers on a journey to design, shop and decorate their brand new home 
as a surprise for them.

 It is all a big, orchestrated, 
tear filled reveal that you won't want to miss. 
Yes, I am already packing the tissues.

I will be updating you every day on the treasures we are finding- and follow along on Instagram. facebook and snapchat for more sneak peeks and behind the scenes.

And you can find posts about the other times I have gone on the GMCHTA here:

I will start by sharing what I am doing on the trip this time later today.
so stay tuned.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
