Mixing my favorite loves

Yesterday I went out to lunch with my good Kaboodle friend lavabunny.


Good thing I've mastered the one-handed shot. We first met in real life at the Kaboodle meetup and it was great fun getting to hang one-on-one. We went to a cute place lavabunny picked, Rocking Horse Cafe, which had the important distinction of not caring if we sat there for hours.
Also I sat next to pretty flowers.

The title of this picture is a reference to a private joke in the forums: calling, someone wants to trade your Brooklyn Bridge for a box of mac 'n cheese.

Just to be clear: I'm not being compensated to tell anyone I love these sites. I do this exclusively because I love them and recommend them based on personal use.

Here's some detail shots on what I wore to lunch:
