Doing the touristy things!!

We woke up today at 6am on-the-dot, due to some lovely (extremely loud!) construction right outside our window. As hard as we tried to go back to sleep-with all the pillows and blankets over our heads, it was too loud and we couldn't- it was horrible! (Maybe we should stop saying up until 2am in the morning?!)

But it was a good thing we got up so early because we did a ton of things! We packed everything up and switched hotels again. This time we went to a very futuristic hotel, Yotel. It was really cool- they even had a robot you could store your luggage in! We definitely put our luggage in it- just to take it right back out, to watch the robot!! haha!! ;)
We quickly learned that the hotel rooms in New York are really compact! This picture shows the WHOLE room! On the left is the door out and on the right is the curtain that separated the bathroom. And that's it! haha! (These 2 images I got from www.yotel.com)
Once we were settled in, we walked around and decided to do the touristy thing and make our way to MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) around 3:30. They told us when we were buying tickets that they closed at 5:00. We thought an hour and a half would be more than enough time, but we definitely could have stayed for a few more hours! There was so much incredible stuff there!
Who wouldn't hug the Pink Panther?! ;)
Andy Warhol
And of course, we had to find Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night. It was crazy to actually see something like that in person!
We seriously could have stayed for a few more hours just wondering around looking at everything! But they kicked everyone out at 5:00 and we headed back to our hotel. Once we got back we ended up eating dinner at the hotel's restaurant. We wanted to do something close and easy because we had big plans for dessert!!
After dinner we went to Serendipity!! This was definitely on the list of things I wanted to do while we were here! I got the famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and 'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' got their Strawberries and Creame with a cappuccino.
I am having SO much fun with 'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter', it doesn't even feel like real life. Literally having the time of my life! We're going to bed early tonight so we can wake up and get some things checked off our bucket lists!! ;)

*Do you have a Bucket List? If so, what is one of the biggest things on there? 

*Have you ever used a robot before?
