And on a final note, The Texas Sweethearts enjoyed lunch together at The Cheesecake Factory this week. Sadly, we got so caught up in conversation, we forgot to get a picture taken, so please just imagine the three of us sitting in a nice big booth enjoying hot tea, lettuce wraps, and dessert.

Have a great weekend!
