Totally Tessa goes to the Big Apple

She's off!

At 4:30 a.m. this morning Jim and Tessa headed to the airport  - Leigh Anne went back to bed.  That meant a 3:45 am wake up call for Tessa!  Thank goodness she washed her hair the night before!!

Tessa will be spending the next 6 days in NYC with DECA - the student business club from school.  She is so excited and we are so excited for her.  They are going to be doing and seeing some amazing things.  If you'd like to check out her agenda of activities you can read all about it here on her blog - Totally Tessa

Of course the better part of her week was spent figuring out what clothes she was going to wear.  I think she finally got them in the suitcase at 10:30 last night!  Her wardrobe picks can be seen here!
They are not allowed to wear jeans to any of their appointments so we had to go out and buy a pair of black and army green pants for her to take and some snow boots!

The thing she is most excited for is their trip to Teen Vogue - working for Teen Vogue would be a dream job for Tessa.

Last minute we decided to make up some business cards she could take with her with her blog on them - thanks to our neighbor Katie for coming to our rescue and helping us out!!  She will look so official and professional!

We got a little worried last night when our neighbor Katie texted us to tell us the Newark airport was closed due to snow.  When we looked this morning it  had just opened up at 6:30 a.m. EST.  They headed to the airport and after a while Tessa texted us to say they had a 3 hour delay but when I went online to check the flight status they had left and were anticipated to arrive only 45 minutes late!

They get to do a little sightseeing tonight - get oriented to the area and check out the view from The Rock.

Tessa will be posting pictures on her blog when she gets back so be sure and check it out!

Cali comes home in THREE DAYS - so excited!!!
