So we are having a ton of fun!
(This is me having fun!)
Yesterday we went to the Guggenheim & The Met (and took pics on the stairs for all you GG lovers!). At the Met we got to see the Costume Institute Exhibit which is only there for a short time every year following the Costume Institute Ball that all the stars attend. (Perez had literally PAGES on that thing!) After that we headed to Greenwich Village to hit up Magnolia Bakery! It is this amazing bakery that I’ve heard mentioned on Ugly Betty and through the cookbooks they sell… but apparently it was made famous through Sex & The City? I’m unsure because I have never seen Sex & The City.
Lisa on The Met steps for lunch.
I just wanted to tell random people to “please move down a step.” Blair’s my HERO!
View from The Met’s roof. Amazing.
A downs in a sparkly mirror on display @ The Met.
Harley, guarding the sugar bowl….at The Met.
Lisa, Me & a cool iron gate at The Met.
I took this while waiting in the hour long line for cupcakes @ Magnolia.
Then we went home & changed and headed to see Mamma Mia on Broadway. We we literally in the second row. The tickets were amazing. Props to Lisa! Then we headed to Times Square…because unless you see that shit at night…you’re missing out. It is amazing! The first time I went to Time’s Square I was OVERWHELMED at the awesomeness of all the lights, etc. I was happy to be there for Lisa’s first time! After that we went to Serendipity. It is a restaurant that specializes in desserts and literally has a movie named after it (serendipity!) and is always featured on Food Network, etc.
On our way to MAMMA MIA!!

Today we woke up late…. so we got a pretty late start. But that didn’t stop us from hitting every spot on the list!
We walked over to the MOMA and waited in a huge ass line but it was totally worth it because that place literally is the highlight of my life. (except my husband, of course!)
Here are some pics of us in the Olafur Eliasson exhibit. The colors were overwhelming. It was crazy.
Then we cabbed it down to meet Howli @ her work and had lunch at this place that literally only serves various potstickers. Good shit. Then we hit: Madison Square Park, The Flat Iron & then I took Lisa to the Museum of SEX at 5th & 27th. I love that place…and I knew she’d appreciate it as much as I do. I also picked up some gifts there for my wonderful sister in laws.

You’ve been warned.
A random (well, not so random) picture of balls @ The Museum of Sex.
Lisa & the wall of Vibrators.
This thing is straight up INTENSE! I read the little placard and NO JOKE it is for a stripper to “JUICE” herself and the little dent is so the “juices” can flow into a customers mouth. Straight up KINK! I cannot believe what people come up with!!!
Does this picture remind you of The Horse vid or what!? YES!!!
The Fleshlight…. this pic is ALLLLL Mario.
These are shoes made for sex workers so their pimps know where those bitches be at! (and so the police can find them when they get raped and jacked for all their money.)
This thing is out of control. It is part of the permanent collection, you I had seen it before…but damn. DAMN!
Wow! This is some HOMEMADE action. I have video footage of this bad boy in the “on” position, but I have no idea how to load vids….
After that we walked up to the Empire State Building at took the elevator ride all the way up 86 floors! The view is amazing even when the weather is shitty. Some random british couple asked me to take their picture at the top and I straight DROPPED THEIR CAMERA! It was fucked. I felt so effin’ bad!

Then we hit up Grand Central Station and headed back to the apartment for dinner. Howli lives directly across the street from this bar called PJ Clarke’s. It’s a famous NYC bar and her boyfriend, Andrew is a bartender there. So, we’ve gone there twice already since we’ve been here and a couple times last time I was in town. Its delicious and knowing the guy behind the counter doesn’t hurt either.
After PJ Clarke’s, we went back to Howli’s to watch Gossip Girl (WHILE IN NYC! YAY!) and they straight up made reference to PJ Clarke’s. Amazing right? I mean we literally left there like 15 minutes before. How very GG of us!
More craziness with my 47′s and things in twos.
(Yes, that’s a two & a 47 together in the Taxi.)
At the MOMA today there was a painting that had my birthday on it with the year 1967.
So thinking…holy shit this must be a sign since I’ve been getting shit in twos allll week. So I went to a market and bought a quick pick for the mega millions ($166 Million) and a $2.00 Scratcher. I scratched the scratcher and won on the same scratcher TWICE! WTF, right? Well then I looked at the Quick Pick and my numbers are 03, 18, 27, 40, 53 and 21. My birthday is 3/18…and I had just seen the painting at the MOMA…plus 27 & 40 add to 67…which is the YEAR on the painting… My parents were both born in 53…and shit…I have no explanation for the 21…but I liked being 21 so thats good too.
I may be a millionaire by the time we make it back!
And according to my phone Thursday in San Mateo is going to be 89 degrees. I’m so stoked…. recoup from NYC by the pool tanning. I LOVE my life!
