Friday Favorites: Julie Travels

Woohoo, we made it to Friday! This has been a busy week for me, as I returned this past Sunday from being gone a week for work and fun, so I’ve been playing catch up this week. My favorites today are all about my fun travels!

My first favorite is the time I got to spend in New York City. The conference I was at took place an hour north of NYC, so I was able to go into the city twice while I was there.


I blogged about what I did here.

One of my favorite things to do in NYC is check out new eateries, and I was able to try several new spots this trip so that’s definitely a favorite.


Check out those tasty details here.

Another favorite is the conference itself. I work for Girl Scouts, and I get to attend this conference annually at our Girl Scout Conference Center, Edith Macy, in Chappaqua, NY. The conference is called Girl Scouts Global Action, and is all about integrating a global perspective into Girl Scout programming. I always leave feeling energized and excited about the year ahead.

The pictures above are of the conference center, me with my awesome volunteer who came to the conference with me, and pictures from the Girl Scout pinning ceremony.

After leaving New York, I flew to Dallas to visit my family – definitely a favorite!! The weekend was spent playing outside, visiting a few of my favorite Dallas spots, and simply hanging out. It was perfect!

My final favorite this week was getting to spend Mother’s Day with my mom while in Dallas. We got to go to the church I grew up in and enjoyed a delicious brunch. It was a great day.

This morning I’m headed out the door to hop on a ferry and make my way to Girl Scout camp for a work event. I’ll see you back here next week.

Have a great weekend and party on!

On Fridays I link up with Friday Favorites and Five on Friday.
