Last week we finally checked 'dining at Au Cheval' off our list.  We went there with my old boss and her husband, and we thoroughly enjoyed catching up with them over indulgent cheeseburgers and french fries.  It's definitely a must-try; it was one of the best burgers I've ever had!  Just be prepared for a wait since they don't take reservations.

I went straight to dinner from work, so I needed to plan ahead and pack accordingly.  This Lo & Sons bag, which was the sweetest, most thoughtful gift from one of my bridesmaids at my shower, was perfectly suited for the occasion.  I was able to fit my (large) camera and all my purse essentials without sacrificing style or being too cumbersome.  If you've ever seen Rear Window (my favorite movie!), this bag reminds me of Grace Kelly's compact overnight bag that was able to fit so much.  The personalized gold engraving of my blog's name that she did makes it all the more special.
