I bought these at the grocery store the other day when they weren't bloomed so I didn't know what they were. Well they've bloomed and are beautiful, I can't stop looking at them they're so pretty!!

Anyone know what kind of flower it is? It kind of looks like a lily but I'm not sure...the brown specs kind of throw me off.

The spotted one looks like Alstroemeria.  Love it, lasts a long time.  Comes in other colors too.

aka "i'll still marry ya."    This (yours) looks really big like a lily, though.

I agree.   That was the first name that came to mind.

Bright Yellow Alstroemeria Flower

A fresh yellow flower, Alstromeria flowers have semi heart-shaped blooms. A single stem has an average of 3 to 5 blooms with bright yellow petals that are often two-toned and freckled. Also known as Peruvian Lilies.

OP - it looks like some type of critter has chomped on a couple of the petals of yours!  LOL
