nyc (my birthday)

My birthday was spent having lots and lots of fun.
We started the day off with The Met and then free tickets to MOMA. We went to see Wicked and then headed to Tiffany's afterward. We soon realized that Tiffany's wasn't happening on my birthday. Womp womp womp.

It's Tiffany's so of course the carpet was blue and not red! Being the not very shy person I am, I asked about 8 people what was going on before I found someone that knew. Most everyone was there watching and not moving only because everyone else was! The majority of responses I received, "I don't know what's going on...I just came over here to see what was going on because of the crowd." Apparently the Giants were in town to get their Super Bowl rings. I took about 25 pix and video of the huge giants getting off the buses, ESPN and everyone going inside. A couple players were so excited that they were videoing everyone videoing them! I thought that was really cool.

Lee literally lol'd because I was taking pictures of everyone and I had absolutely no idea who anyone was. When that got old, we headed across the street to Louis Vuitton to try on my birthday present. Much more important.
I made Lee laugh and roll his eyes again. Men don't understand the need to try on purses. It just doesn't register with them. My serious face again.

We then darted back to the hotel to freshen up for dinner reservations at The River Cafe under the Brooklyn Bridge. It's a special place I came to with my family years ago and I've wanted to go back ever since then. Lee and I made a pact to come back whenever we're in NYC. We both ordered the 6 course Chef's Tasting Menu and anticipated the surprise of each course. I secretly crossed my fingers that it would be nothing raw. Of course I ensured we would receive the bridge for dessert before ordering. It's my favorite course, duh! I loved the small Happy Birthday chocolate sign on my plate that was dusted with gold. I took a nibble before taking a pic. Oops.
