I have a long time friend who lives in Waco that I haven't seen in years, so I headed out early to go by and visit, catch up and have lunch. We talked, got teary eyed, ate and laughed at old family stories. Our parents had known each other since before I was born! It was great seeing Barbara and we talked so much we forgot to take a picture! She has a great home and backyard. I'm very jealous... she can grow anything. She also has a great cork wall going into their refrigerator. It goes from floor to ceiling and must have taken hours.
Barbara gave us some suggestions for dinner on Sunday night since many, MANY places are closed. We chose Portofino downtown and it was fabulous. Portofino's Authentic Italian. Lobster Ravioli and Chicken Piccata. YUM!Before our dinner we stopped in at a nice sports bar with a few beers on tap.!!!
So, I'm telling you, Monday morning is the time to go to this very very popular destination. We lucked out with our weather. We were expecting crowds, lines and hot hot temps. When we got there it was in the 70's. We walked right into the Bakery then got in line for the store to open and waltzed right in
Minimal crowd on Monday Morning!!!
Heading out of town towards McGregor we passed this place. if you look really close you see the Vegas Chinese Buffet !!!!!! We found this quite hysterical.
We swung by the original Magnolia Bed and Breakfast in McGregor and the Gains home property as well.
The Cedar Chest is one of the places that Joanna visits her decor. I found some dishes to match some my mom gave me years ago. I added this bowl to my collection
