Friday the 13th at the House of Wax!

Yesterday we visited Madame Toussaud's Wax Museum in Times Square. 
OMG, we saw so many celebs! Of course, they were plastic. But they looked verrrrry real. Here's Robin Williams. 
Here's Tyra!
Woody Allen and Leonardo Di Caprio (an unusual pair).

Michael Jackson.

Elton John!
Burke hangin' with the 9/11 firefighters.
Me giving Salvador Dali directions to the bathroom.
The weirdest part was, all these figures were together in one big room. So as you enter the room and start walking around, you have this feeling that there are lots of people in the room with you. Sometimes it even feels like you're being stared at. But, of course, 80% of the "people" in the room are actually wax figures! Eerie.

Valentine's Day

Ah, New York: the City of Love (yeah, right!). Well, to us NYC is a very romantic place. For Valentine's Day this year, we went to the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset. Unfortunately, it was rather cloudy that day, so we didn't get to actually watch the sun set, but it was still nice to go for a walk together.
Afterward, we went out to eat at a nice Italian restaurant and then came home to have dessert. What spells l-o-v-e like a delicious Magnolia cupcake?
