We got American Girl Doll done and over with; Diva has already done that here in Chicago but Brooke has never been, and boy, did her eyes light up. She loved it!
Magnolia Bakery from Sex in the City. Or is it Sex and the City. That is one thing I always mess up. Pretty good cupcakes. I spent like $30 on dessert and I really don't eat sugar all that much anymore. But I did that day. Had to. Of course. We had red velvet cake, whoopie pies, brownies, and cupcakes, cuz hey, why not.
We saw our first celeb outside of the NBC building and we didn't know who it was just that it was some female celeb people were surrounding so we got with the program and started taking pics, cuz who knew, she coulda been really famous. Turns out it was Olivia Munn, who actually looked like a porn star, but is in Date Night and upcoming Iron Man 2.
She came back with a new one and WHAT DO YOU FREAKING KNOW? It was perfect! The first one must have had sour mix in it.So we ate and drank and laughed and had a great time Friday and then Swishy had to go out and do some Swishy New York things, which I'm sure Swishy will tell all on her blog. Love you Swishy
My sis brought us all matching jammies so then we had a jammie fashion show and photo shoot which was so much fun.
So, we shopped, ate pizza, then went back to the hotel to regroup for Mary Poppins! Admittedly, I was not too psyched for Mary Poppins, but really, it is a holiday when you're with Mary! I was shocked at how much fun the play was! A really good time! Plus, we drank some pretty good cocktails during it! It was, in a word, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Dinner that night--INCREDIBLE. My brother and sister-in-law treated for my sis' 40th birthday (and mine), and nothing was spared. They had a bottle of Dom Perignon waiting on the table for us. I took photos of EVERYTHING we ate... lobster, Alaskan king crab legs, crabcakes, filet mignon, OMG, when I am lying in bed at night, this is the meal I am going to dream about. It was phenomenal!
I think I need a black and white still-shot of me with a Nike hat on with some dead guy's overvoice saying, "Stephanie, did you ever think it would come down to this, that you would be moving, and that it would be happening so fast?" And I'd be looking into the camera, blinking my eyes, staring straight ahead, while the dead guy keeps talking, maybe he's saying, "Keep having faith, keep believing in the good karma that you have," and I'm still staring ahead and blinking in that black and white still shot, and the dead guy's overvoice will say, "And believe ... believe that everything will work out the way God has planned it."
For the complete set of photos from the trip, visit my FaceBook page. If you haven't friended me yet, feel free to do so, just send me a message that you're a Manic reader, and let me know how long you've been reading!
Oh, and winners of the Year of the Cock will be announced later this week!
