Watched the GOP debate on MSNBC. Am I the only sap who cried when they showed Reagan's funeral? I don't care what your political leanings are: watching Nancy Reagan press her cheek to Ronnie's coffin was heart wrenching. Makes me want to wrap my husband in bubble-wrap for the forseeable future.

Pokemon Center - NYC

We took a day trip in to NYC with the girls today. We stopped at the Pokemon Center store in midtown (10 Rockefeller Plaza), which is filled with every type of Pokemon plush toy you can imagine.

Pikachu is still my favorite.

On the upper level of the store, you'll find all things Nintendo, including Super Mario Brothers.

Then we headed downstairs to the underground Concourse at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (a great place to shop and visit when you're in NYC on an inclement weather day) and had some hot chocolate at the Jacques Torres store.
