You've Got a Friend

Chapin and I had a wonderful evening last night visiting with our friend, Rahul, and his girlfriend, Vinnie. Rahul and Chapin have been friends for almost 15 years now, and he was one of Chapin's groomsmen when we got married.
I also consider Rahul a good friend. He is such a kind, caring, intelligent, generous individual, and you can always depend on him. He even watched Izzie for us when we needed someone to help out. Rahul is always a person you want on your side, and I am honored to call him my friend after all these years.

Our dinner reservations were at a restaurant called Craft in Buckhead. Rahul was the only person at our table who had eaten there before, and he swears by their steaks. As many people know, I no longer eat cow, pig or lamp, so I opted for the Red Snapper, while Chapin had the duck. I honestly wish I had ordered the duck, because it was so delicious!

The dinner conversation was fun and friendly, and we enjoyed getting to know Vinnie, who is awesome! Dessert was pretty good, too. I enjoyed the Toasted Pecan ice cream, while Chapin had the Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Roulade.

As we were leaving, we had a funny encounter with one of the valets. We stood outside for maybe five minutes before a valet even showed up, and when he did, he swore up and down that Chapin had been there "waaaaaay" before Rahul, even though Rahul actually walked outside first. It was so random it made us laugh. Maybe you had to be there.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Rahul and Chapin, from our wedding in 2003. They always laugh when they're together.

I also can't forget to mention my outfit: I am wearing the Black Halo Kimberly Satin dress, which has been seen on celebrities like Olivia Munn. I am also wearing my BCBGMaxAzria Two-Toned Sequin Pumps that Chapin bought me in San Francisco.
