What I'm Loving Wednesday

Whew, we made it to Wednesday people. Happy Hump Day to all!
Here's what I am loving this week:
1) The two Reese's eggs I allowed myself to enjoy post Easter. Happy Easter to me! 
2) That my lilac is blooming.  This isn't just any lilac plant, this "start" came off my aunt's beautiful lilac bush, and hers started from my grandmother's lilac that separated her yard from the ally behind her house when she was still alive. It is very special to me to have a piece of my grandmother growing in the yard of my first home. What is even more special is that it is blooming the first year it was planted. I was told it could take up to three years to see blooms. So now the baby plant (which I honestly thought I had killed) is growing strong and has a few beautiful clumps of blooms!
3) This Griddler I got for Christmas. It took me a while to bust it out - I think I had made one grilled cheese up till last week. Then I tried something new on it - cooking meat. Turkey burgers to be exact. And now I am hooked! I did chicken breasts last night and they came out so tender and juicy. Next up will be bacon - yes I'm going there. The best thing about this little appliance is that you can pop the grill plates in the dishwasher, no need to scrub! So if you are interested, they are fairly reasonable and you can find it here or probably at your local department store.
4) That my bestie is coming to visit this weekend! I can't wait to spend some quality time with this girl, have a bloody mary or two, and enjoy a weekend catching up!
What are you loving this week?
