NM Cafe and an Orange Box

I love going back to Neiman Marcus at Tysons II, in Virginia (my old stomping grounds) and one of the best parts about the store is the NM Cafe. They are always slammed and don't take reservations on weekends...but you can shop while you wait. I recently met a former co-worker of mine (Ms. YSL) for lunch.

The famous Neiman Marcus popovers and strawberry butter.

Strawberry lemonade is one of my favorites.

Tortilla soup...oh how I missed you.

I am convinced that Perrier tastes much better when it comes from Hermes.

A new little friend to go with my Birthday bangle.

Special thanks to Ms. YSL for meeting me for lunch (I had the best time catching up) and to the lovely gentelman at Hermes for getting me back on the road in a jiffy. xx

NM actually puts out a cookbook that includes some of their most popular items! A great addition to a wish list for Christmas! xx

Gorgeous bracelets!!We are hopefully heading to McLean next month for my best friend's baby naming ceremony---I will have to visit NM Cafe!

My kind of day!!! Do you have the Neiman Marcus cookbook they did a few years ago? The popover recipe is in there.....and it works beautifully. But, there is something about having them brought to you. LOVE going to the Zodiac Room in Dallas when I go home.

And that bracelet...well, that's just about as pretty as they get!!

I gave the cookbook to JCW’s rents years ago. I made the popovers and they did turn out beautifully...can’t wait to make them for Thanksgiving! xx

Is there anything not to love about your trip to Tyson's? I think not!

Golly DAY it's like reading about myself! NM Cafe is where I always ate lunch during my Tyson's sprees. Although, I was always partial to the Cobb salad and a glass of Pouille Fousse. And, of course luuuv and own your purchase...XXOO
