What I'm Loving Wednesday


I'm loving that my amaryllis finally decided to bloom! A student gave me the bulb 2 1/2 years ago as a gift.  It is supposed to sit in a dark place for 6 weeks, be set out, and bloom in the Spring.  Yeah, that didn't happen.  For TWO springs.  Then, this year, it bloomed, just in time for Easter.  Super cool!

Saturday night I got to visit Taste of Texas for the first time.  We were celebrating Laura's birthday there (Happy birthday come Thursday, Laura!).  Taste of Texas is a phenomenal steak house.  It's about 30 minutes from our house, but totally worth the drive.  They have a soda bar, warm chips and queso, and popcorn machine while folks wait for their table.  Their menu is extensive (and expensive), but the steaks are melt-in-your mouth amazing.  Isaac ordered steak, and I ordered lobster so we could make our own surf 'n turf.  Wow.  Delightful.  I think David's birthday is next, and I hope he picks Taste of Texas too! Please ignore the horrible photo quality.  My phone doesn't have a flash, and the lighting was dim.


Birthday Girl!

I saw these pjs in a shop early in the Spring.  They didn't have my size, but I scoured the internet until I found them on mud-pie's website.  I so adore giraffes and green and pjs, so this was just a perfect combination for me for the upcoming warmer nights.

I'm also loving our full blown house hunting.  It's exhausting, but we're having a great time.  We found a house today we're going pray about putting in an offer.  The house is a bit further from my parents than I'd like for it to be, and there's not yet a pool in the yard, but the house itself is just about perfect.  Check back for updates!

What are you loving this week?

As always, linking up with Jamie.

That picture with your dog and your flower is just precious! Perfect timing:) I'm loving all of the flowers that are blooming too! I just can't get enough of them. We have a lilac bush in our backyard and I've already cut 6 bouquets out! I hope you enjoy the rest of your Wednesday:)
