Part of 6th Avenue (maybe all of it?) was closed down for some sort of biking event.
Standing in front of American Girl Place, one of my favorite stores on earth. We had to take this photo 12 times because I couldn't figure out what settings to use to have my face be lit!!
How cute is it to shop in a place like this?
Me with my namesake display. Yes, obviously she is named after me.
And while this one may not be my namesake...she's kind of my trademark. I'm really afraid Molly is going to be retired at the end of this year, so I wanted a pic with her whole display before it's too late. :\
Andrew even let me purchase a couple of outfits that I didn't gain during my childhood, so that my Molly collection can be complete! YAY!
The bakery at AG Place sells "sets" of snacks - one for girl and one for doll. DELIGHTFUL.
This is the Doll Hair Salon. AG Place is coming to Kansas City in the fall - I'm thinking about leaving behind my other career and just playing with dolls all day. I mean, really, what better way to spend my time? :)
My other favorite NYC shopping location - H&M! This is the 3-story shop on 5th Avenue. I never got to Herald Square to visit the other ones...oh well. Hopefully all the cute stuff was here!
The interior of the store. Amazing. The first time I was here was in Summer 2007, when vacationing with Rachel and Laura. Fun, fun, fun!
Apparently stone-wash is back in style. No...I did not add this to my personal wardrobe.
The Lindt Chocolate Shop. Yummy.
FAO Schwartz. I can't wait to take my kids to this store someday. It's amazing.
LOLA! Charlie & Lola is the best kids TV series of the last 10 years.
MAPLE TOWN!!! Okay....so it's really called Country Critters now, but I was obsessed with Maple Town when I was little. Seriously, I have dozens of these creatures and they're amazing.
The Storytime room at FAO.
We find it amusing that NBC gets a huge store at Rockefeller, and CBS is a few blocks away and is basically a closet. But we found a few interesting things....
Next was a visit to Crumbs Bakery, next to the Broadway Theatre where we saw Promises Promises on Friday. Let me tell you...these were some pretty phenomenal cupcakes. I'm now obsessed with cupcakes!
The delightful specimen we shared. It was too rich to eat the whole thing alone!
Waiting by the stage door after The Addams Family at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
Meeting Kevin Chamberlin, who played Horton in Seussical! Gertrude and Horton finally meet...aww.
After the show, my feet had reached the point of extreme pain and I finally caved and wore tennis shoes for an evening. It was almost as painful to wear the ugly shoes as it would have been to deal with the pain from cute shoes. I'm only 23 and don't feel that I should really be required to give up CUTE yet. Right? :\
Shopping at Toys R Us.
As we are trying to be health-conscious and we had already had cupcakes this day, we did not buy the Wonka chocolate. But it looked Scrumdiddliumptious!
We headed to Grand Central just so I could take some photos. I've been here multiple times, but have never paused to capture the essence of this place. Pretty happy with this shot.
Cedric was irritated that we'd forgotten him for another day, so here's his photo in Grand Central.
Spiderman: Turn off the Dark was the original reason we planned this trip, and wouldn't you know? It hasn't even opened yet. And no one knows when it will open. Oh well.
Hanging out at Planet Hollywood. Definitely dancing.
Possible reason for dancing? Look at this beautiful salad.
Decor at Planet Hollywood. Couldn't resist a photo. ;)
