Where Are We?

*Updated to add:

Yes - we were indeed in Times Square in front of the Jumbotron. Waving like mad at ourselves on the screen and then taking a picture of our miniature bodies like every other tourist in the place.

And, that's us - in the lower left hand corner. Me in a blue patterned shirt, and my husband in navy and red stripes with the camera.

We had a great time in New York City. As you can see, we had no kids with us. No stroller. No diaper bag. No spit up on our miniature shirts.

So in "The city that never sleeps" - WE SLEPT! Because that's what you do when you have a few days away from your four children who wake up at the crack of dawn. I'll post more on our little getaway later.


While I sort through and edit our vacation photos, I thought I'd show you this photo we took during a special part of our vacation.

Every time my boys walk through the doors at Target, they wield invisible lightsabers and engage in some sort of Kung Fu behavior at the security cameras just beyond the front doors.

I always think to myself: Boys, what is so fascinating about seeing yourself on camera?

{Ahem. Eating words.}


SO, three questions:

1. Where are we? Specifically. Anyone recognize this place?


2. Can you spot us? Me and my hunky husband?


3. Have you ever been here? If so, when? And, did you wave like a mad fool or dance or do Kung Fu or just grumble at the tourists because you're a local trying to get to work?

Let me tell you? We saw it all. This place is crawling with every type of person you can imagine doing all kinds of unexpected and strange and perplexing things.

Which I will show you in some of the photos I'll post later this week.

I'll keep your answers hidden until tonight when I'll update this post with our specific whereabouts and where you can find us in this photo.

Waldo's girlfriend, Wilma


  1. I'm guessing you're in NYC in front of the jumbo-tron. Not sure where you're standing. Either in the center of the photos, wearing orange and green, or over to the left wearing stripes and print. I'll go out on a limb and say you're the gal in orange, since she appears to be holding something up to her eyes. A camera, perhaps? :) The guy wearing stripes looks like he's taking a photo as well. Hmmm...

  2. 1. You were in Times Square looking at the large screen that is on top of the forever 21 store.

    2. He is wearing teal shirt, you are wearing red shirt.

    3. We were there in May! My husband was quite fascintated by it. I just wanted to move on and see more fun sights! :)

  3. You are in Times Square!!! I grumble because I'm a local trying to get some place.

  4. I have no idea where you might be. But I think you are the couple on the left of the photo-the girl in the blue and the guy in the red shirt who looks like he is taking a photo of his own.

  5. I have no idea where you are and no, I've never been there. But are you in the lower left side, teal shirt and black pants? Jason in a red and black striped shirt?

  6. You're in Times Square, NYC - you and your husband are on the far left of the pic :) Haven't been to Times Square since they put this camera up!

  7. I'm not sure where you are, but in the pic I think you are on the left - your husband is wearing a red & blue striped shirt & you're wearing tourquoise. :)

  8. Times Square, lower left toward edge of photo, yes with my daughter, her friend and my best friend this past April. We have a photo just like this..if I am right about yours. We were there on a Wednesday at 5pm. Yes to all kinds of people going everywhere at the same time. CRAZY ...but a fun time to experience it.

  9. i'm guessing you are on you NY trip and that you are the couple middle back with you taking a photo and jason waving?? in blue and he in red??
