Taking a Bite Out of the Big Apple

I spent this whole week catching up and took zeeero pictures… so, I’m going to show you a little more about my trip. Warning: There is basically no teaching content in this post.


My husband always tells me that I take pictures of things and scenery, but complains that I’m never in the pictures. Besides, I’m a blogger… don’t I have to take awkward mirror pictures?


A beautiful city!


I was pretty excited to be there. You could juuust barely see the Hudson River from my hotel room window.


As a birthday gift, my husband got me tickets to Phantom of the Opera.


They were incredible seats in a beautiful theater, and the show was downright amazing.


We heard a talk from author/ illustrator Henry Cole- so inspiring.


He also signed a book for each of us- the wordless picture book Unspoken.


Here’s me with Scholastic Book Clubs’ President and the Scholastic CEO/ Chairman. They were both wonderful and truly wanted our feedback.


The Scholastic building was definitely a book lover’s paradise.


Of course, I got a chance to shop at the Scholastic Store in SoHo, too. So many wonderful books to choose from!


So, basically… it couldn’t be much more of an incredible trip! I also got a chance to see Mamma Mia, eat at Guy Fieri’s restaurant, see the 9/11 memorial, visit Rockefeller Center, and pass all kinds of famous landmarks.

At this point, I’m down to about 6 weeks of school left, and only about 3 weeks until my husband graduates. Hard to believe this semester has gone so fast!

Next week, I’ll remember to get a few more pictures at school to share with you! :)

What was the last great trip you went on?

  4. Ahhh, books! I bet I could spend all day in that Scholastic store (and get into lots of trouble)! My last trip was to Playa del Carmen in Mexico, and we're going back this summer!

  5. The Scholastic Store looks amazing! I go to NYC every year but have never visited Scholastic before. It's on my list for next year!
