I recently got to hang out with some friends and when I got to my buddy Brian's house, I realized why we haven't seen much of him and his wife. Simply put, they've been busy updating their backyard and growing an awesome garden.

As the evening went on we got to discussing what enticed them to go all out and add to their awesome outdoor kitchen with an awesome bar. The other thing I noticed was that they had grown a small flower garden and an incredible vegetable garden as well, he said "The garden is the wife's brainchild."

I guess it's when you have some extra time because Brian and his wife have been working from home since COVID. So, when they're not on a "Teams Meeting" they'll step out to work on the projects they've been working on. He told me "We don't go out much anymore because we love this place and I can get more done and concentrate more on the family projects."

So, I started looking around on social media and I discovered that we Texans have a few things we are interested in and have been doing. There are some things (topics) that are hot and trending on social media in the Lone Star State.

Here's what I discovered and they are in no particular order, but this is what is hot and "Trending in Texas" and yes I've started doing some of these at my place. First off, planting a home garden tends to relieve stress and anxiety and one starts eating healthier. Adding a small flower garden was his wife's idea and the place looks great.

The huge pergola, BBQ pit, griddle, and bar were a nice touch. However, I know how much we all like to go eat out here in West Texas on "Taco Tuesdays." That's when my buddy revealed that going through social media he found the real restaurant recipes for his favorite foods, from tacos to steaks.

So, I've decided to share with you what I found on places like Facebook, TiK Tok, Pinterest, Yelp, and Twitter. these are the top 5 hottest trending things happening in Texas.
