Bless Your Heart

by Heather on September 19, 2012

Thanks for all of your sweet comments about our big move!  We are really truly excited about it and I can’t wait to explore a new city.  I promise to write all about our new adventures in Little Rock – I think I see lots of kayaking, hiking, and camping coming our way!

For the moment Wes and I are in Lubbock with my parents, so we’ve been going to all of our favorite places to hang and eat.  One of my favorites ever is Bless Your Heart – I remember eating there on and off in high school, but really falling in love with it in college.  We would eat lunch and/or dinner there, or I would just pop in for some of their frozen yogurt after a long day at school.

I love this place because it’s healthy but doesn’t compromise on flavor, and let’s be honest:  there’s a frozen yogurt bar.  Sign me up just for that alone!

 

Honestly though, the coolest thing about Bless Your Heart for me is the memories.  Memories of friendships being built over enjoying meals together, friends getting a cup of fro-yo before heading to the pool, scarfing down our lunches to make it back to class in time, and being able to look across the street at the campus that I grew up on.  It’s where I ate the day before our wedding, and   The food is great, but the memories built around the food and the building are even greater.

The other night we took Weston there where he sat up in his stroller for the first time to watch us eat, and a new memory was formed.  So while Bless Your Heart is a place that serves heart-healthy fare, I would say that it’s blessed my heart many times over and over again!

Hi! I grew up in LR and I think it is the BEST place to raise a family. I just moved away a year ago but I seriously miss it every.single.day. You must explore the trails on Pinnacle Mountain and the Big Dam Bridge. Ah I am so happy for you and that I get to live vicariously through your blog. Please take LOTS of pictures! :)

Oh Bless Your Heart!!! I know that place well. They have a banana shake that my mom always gets and I end up eating most of it. It’s about as healthy as you can get in West Texas.. am I right?!!! haha!! Thanks for reminding me of this sweet place. We haven’t been home in a long time.

Wes is so cute! Ella started crawling forward 2 days ago. (She was only crawling backwards for 3 weeks) Wow what a change, she is flying on the floor and no longer wants to be held, but wants to be on the floor, be independent and explore!!!

Wes hasn’t started crawling yet, but i know that when he does all i can really do is try to keep the floors clean – he’ll want to be on them ALL.THE.TIME!
