Sandra Lee Summer Carnival ~ New York City!

* Written this past Thursday when I was on my way….I just got home last night (Sunday). Had a BLAST!! More to come!

I’ve been quite the traveler lately! As a homeschool mom of 3, I don’t get out much. Really I don’t!! But lately it seems like every time I turn around, a new adventure awaits! Last weekend my good friend Michelle and I embarked on a food blogger road trip. We headed to Tampa for TECHmunch, a more intimate food blog conference than most put on by Babette of Bakespace. I have so much to share on that, but it’ll have to wait for a different post.

Today I’m typing from 37,000 feet in the air! This time I’m headed to New York City for Sandra Lee’s Summer Carnival! I received the invitation a couple weeks ago along with a small group of bloggers….some I even met back in January in Chicago at the Kenmore Blogger Summit. Thankfully this time I won’t be flying into a blizzard, and I’m loving this non-stop flight with Jet Blue.

I have a super busy day full of fun ahead, but I’ll just share a few highlights before we land:

* I’ll be staying in the heart of Midtown Manhattan!

* We get to meet Sandra Lee of Food Network fame, and have a sneak peek at her new product line coming out. From what I’ve seen on pinterest already….we’re in for a treat!

* I get to spend time with food blogger friends!

* And I can’t forget to mention that this will be my first visit to New York City!!!! Yes, seriously! I can’t wait….I know I’ll be in AWE!!

Yes, this post was written pre-visit, and I fell in love with New York….no surprise there! I have so much to share over the next few weeks. Life has been a whirlwind lately….but so much to come and wonderful pics I can’t wait to show you. Here is a collage I made of a few of the highlights…..

  3. What fun! I still have yet to get any face time with a fellow blogger, so just that experience is great within itself. I have never been to NY and I am sure I would have a hard time squeezing in all the things I would want to see and do. Also, I doubt if I could even sleep there with all the excitement. So happy for you, you visit will definitely be one of the highlights of your life. Enjoy!

      Thanks Katie!! I had a lot of downtime since we scheduled that in. Hubby knew since I’d never been that I wanted to stay an extra night. He encouraged that…so I was there Thursday – Sunday. Thurs and Fri night I stayed in midtown Manhattan in the Fitzpatrick hotel and then Saturday night with a friend out in Brooklyn! It was wonderful, and I can’t wait to go back someday. Still so much to see and do. Think hubby is now willing to go with me. 😉
