My mom will be a tad irked that I used a G-Dubb quote but it was so appropriate, I couldn't resist.
I heart Texas, it's pretty obvious. And even though my fanaticism has waned somewhat over the last few years (only because I have someone to keep me company now and I don't spend ALL my hours thinking about all my loved ones back home), I still am pretty loony about the Lone Star State.
I've been thinking a lot about home lately. Not so much because I miss all my peeps there (although I really do) but because the climate here is remarkably similar to Texas. That got me to thinking about all of the things I love about Texas and since I am incredibly vain, I thought you might care...whoever you are...
So, here, in no particular order are a few things that remind me of my very favorite State:
|Texas country music. Yes, there IS a difference!|
|Bluebonnets, I'm glad there's a law against picking them dammit!|
|Our CHAMPIONS!!! The Dallas Mavericks! What a great season!!|
|Armadillos. This dearly departed Armadillo's name is Earl Wyatt ArmeDadillo. Cassie loves him..so should you!|
|A rapidly vanishing bit of our heritage...the horned toad. Want to help his cause? Go here: Horned Lizard Conservation Society|
|Big Tex: "Well Howdy Pawdnah!"|
|Wide open skies and the storms you can see for miles away because there's nothing blocking your view|
|Hole in the wall Mexican joints|
|Big Hair, Big Fun!|
|There's NO BBQ like Texas BBQ!!|
