Weekly Wrap Up - NYC Style

Happy Friday Y'all! 
So glad you stopped by to check in on our homeschool happenings...
Last weekend (Monday actually) was my 48th birthday celebration weekend and it was jam packed with fun experiences!
If you follow me on Instagram you were in for a lot of posts from the city!
I invited two friends into NYC with me to have a fun world wind 24 hours (we live about an hour away from the city but rarely go in). We took the train (Metro North) into Grand Central Station.  We stayed at the Marriott across from Bryant Park and I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to ANYONE who visits the area. It had a nice kitchen and two queen beds. FULL breakfast in the morning was included and free wifi!
My friend who is facing the wall in the upper picture was talking and listening to me whisper from the opposite side of the arch in front of the Oyster Bar at Grand Central. It's amazing how she could hear me among all the hustle and bustle of the terminal. Called the Whispering Wall for good reason…

The agent also came over yesterday with a photographer and took pictures of our home and should be up on the market next week!
I will keep you all updated as we go thru this process!
What's up for the weekend:
Today - back over to the house for another look see and offer to the sellers.
