Back from my grand adventures in the great state of New York!
After our red eye flight, Brady, Erin and I spent the morning getting settled at our hotel and then walked over to the Javitts convention center for the first day of the Stationary Show. Both Brady and I were so excited to walk by the Bryant Park along the way! Both of us are avid Project Runway fans, so this was a huge moment of wow!!
The Stationary Show was incredible and we enjoyed seeing many types of products.
During our stay at the Helmsley at 42nd and 2nd we made day trips to the Garment district, SoHo, Central Park and many wonderful eateries and fun shops in between all of that! There was still so much to see and do that another trip will need to be planned, and of course I would like to do that much sooner than later, LOL!
On Thursday the 27th Megan and I made our way to Buffalo, where we had the pleasure of meeting the FAB Julia Stainton in person! CKC Buffalo was so fun to attend, and I enjoyed being Megan's teaching assistant for our time there.
Our last day was spent adventuring around the great upstate area of New York, and an amazing trip to Niagara Falls where we rode the Maid of the Mist into the center of the falls and got drenched!
After an exciting afternoon at the falls, we had to eat at the originator of the "Buffalo Wing" the Anchor Bar in downtown Buffalo. Very delicious and full of interesting memorabilia from the years of serving that world famous dish. Had to bring a bottle of the original sauce home to Dave so he could experience the burn too ;o)
It is so good to be home after an exciting week of adventures, Dave gave the bad babies a bath so they smelled good and Laurel made a chocolate layer cake that was delish! I feel so loved and it is a wonderful feeling for sure!!
