Dining at the “Fashion Court”

I love that I live in an area that’s overflowing with bloggers friends to meet and some that pass through from time to time.  But this was one of those meetups that was a long time in the making. MLK Day was the day that I finally had the chance to meet with Fashion Court – a fashion blogger and twitteraholic!  She is another fabulous Jersey Girl and one of my very first commenters/bloggy friends when I started The Maddy Chronicles!  Even though she took a hiatus from blogging for a while, we still kept in touch via Twitter and I’ve always regarded her as my online little sister…I really ♥ her! Per her suggestion, we met up for lunch at Nordstrom Cafe and I quickly became obsessed with their food! Have you ever been to a restaurant and loved it so much that you weren’t finished eating before planning your next visit?  Well, that’s exactly what happened!   It was so good that I decided to go back on Friday for another taste of their delicious soup and salad. So besides having a new friend to add to the long list of fabulous bloggers I’ve met, now I can add a new favorite lunch spot too!

That is tremendous! Love the photo of you both and the yummy food. Ya’ll are adorable! I haven’t met a blog friend in a while. I need to change that. I bet there are tons in my area. :-) Nice arrangements of the clip art and templates, too. :-)

hey, you’re the first one to use the stationery textures — yay!! oh maddy, i love nordstrom, too. people laugh at me when i speak so well of “mall food”, but nordstrom is not like other mall food — it rivals other really good restaurants in my book.

We no longer have good “mall food” … but I know what you’re talking about. We use to have the Bon Marche downtown … and they had a cafe in the basement. What it lacked in ambiance it more than made up for in taste … it was so good! You know, back in the day, most of the big department stores had restaurants–I imagine that’s what it was like. Such a pity that we’ve lost that … sigh.

What a fun friend to have. You meet so many blogging friends : ) WOWZA! I love that. I also love the restaurant. You know it is good if you can’t wait to get back. It certainly looks delicious!

Isn’t Nordstrom Cafe great? I’m anxiously anticipating the grand opening of the Nordstrom in my local mall (the first Nordstrom in Delaware!) and I pray that it’s a “real” Nordstrom, complete with a Cafe. I like having a place to chill out and eat lunch right in the middle of a high fashion store.

That’s so neat – I’ve never eaten at their cafe – I didn’t know they had one. We don’t have a Nordstrom nearby either….but when I find a good place to eat…I will eat there over and over again.

When Nordstrom opens in Delaware, I am going to be in big trouble during their major sales. Especially since I am purging my closet and will need to revamp after baby.

I love blogger meetups. Can’t wait till the next one!

P.S. This is my favorite layout thus far :-)

Food, friends… what could be better? That’s so awesome that you get to meet up with so many fellow bloggers! I’ve had that experience with Cheddars restaurant. Their entire menu is divine. I like to eat there all the time.

I heart blogger meet ups, and you know I love Nordstrom. But I’m pretty sure, it’s a good thing that my local Nordstrom doesn’t have a full cafe, I would be there every weekend!
