Let's be foreal...

Life has seriously been B-A-N-A-N-A-S lately!! I am so sorry that I have failed to keep up with my blogging! I have been spending so much time in my new classroom...and I don't have a computer in there...yet! :)

Last week I was up there about three whole days and spent the whole time organizing and decorating my room....it looks SUPER cute if I do say so myself! I will have to take some pictures and get it all up on here for you to see!

But really...I am worn out from all of that....in-service week starts TOMORROW...we have had people constantly at our house all weekend (don't get me wrong...we LOOOOOVE having guests come to stay with us)...and to top it all off...I threw a baby shower at our house today!!! GEEZ LOUISE!!! Can I take a nap yet???

But this has been the highlight of my weekend....FOOD....of course! My husband and I are religious watchers of both Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives AND Man VS Food. If you haven't seen either one of these...you are missing out! They are GREAT shows! Anyways...a few months ago DD&D came to town and did a little show on a restaurant not too far from our house. We had never heard of it and it is a little bit off the beaten path. It's called Chef Pointe Cafe. Ya'll.......oh my.....it's CRAZY. The whole deal is that the owner is from another country and couldn't get a loan a few years ago to open a restaurant....so....he got a loan to open up a gas station. Therefore, he just put in a kitchen and opened up his little restaurant inside! Literally....it's a gas station that serves FIVE STAR rated food!! Craziest thing I have ever seen!

We went and tried it out on Friday night and we were AMAZED...so of course....like anyone normal....we went back on Saturday night too! HA! Let me just let you in on some of the MANY things they serve: Duck a la 'orange, Chicken Parmesan, Lobster Bisque, Stuffed Artichoke, Fried Chicken, Stuffed Pork Chops, and their famous (and might I add...the most amazing) Bread Pudding! Their menu is huge and there are so many wonderful options to pick from!

To give you an idea...this is what the place looks like....


B-A-N-A-N-A-S............ what an adventure!

We had to wait at least 45 minutes both nights that we went...but it was SO worth it! If you are EVER around the Fort Worth area...you should for sure look into it!

I am drooling right now thinking about that bread pudding...holy cow.

Hope ya'll have had a wonderful weekend!!

XOXO,

Hilary
