What: In Pursuit of the WoCave (wo-cah-vay) (noun: female man cave)
Guys, don’t worry, you may not be interested in the WoCave, but you might enjoy the field trips, so stay tuned.
Where: Three secret missions
When: Now through August
A few months ago I was approached by representatives of Nestle Skinny Cow ice cream asking if I’d be interested in working with them on a campaign to find the ultimate WoCave or ‘woman cave’. They’d send me on three secret missions to discover my definition of a WoCave and asked me to enlist the help of the you, the Field Trips with Sue audience, in defining what a WoCave means for women. My guess is it’s not a physical space like a man cave, but a state of mind. In addition to the missions, they’d supply me with some Skinny Cow ice cream to share. Let’s see, they’re going to send me on three field trips with ice cream. I think they’ve defined my bliss right there.
After my initial excitement, I kinda forgot about this project. My boys had lacrosse tournaments almost every weekend this summer, with several in the mid-Atlantic and northeast, so we’ve been on a grand road trip. (to see our adventure, follow @FieldTripswithSue on Instagram) We got back late last night, after a few weeks on the road, to a huge box outside my door and an email from the Skinny Cow representatives. Christmas in July!
Skinny Cow WoCave Mission No. 1:
I opened the box to discover my first mission: plan a one-night staycation and visit a highly popular, local, tourist spot you’ve never experienced before that reflects your most authentic self, and bring a friend. Hmmm, that leaves things really wide open. If you had one night away with a girlfriend, where would you go?
