It’s been really difficult coming up with a post for this week; my life has been preeetty boring the last few weeks. So I decided to write about one of the things I love the most, Texas.
I was recently asked, “What do you love most about Texas. What’s so great about living there?” This was actually a difficult question for the simple fact that I love almost everything! Now I know people from other states hate when people from Texas go on and on about out state, but we can’t help it! There isn’t that one thing that pin points it…it’s everything! Number one is our pride if you haven’t been able to catch up on that. I remember when my guy friends turned 18, they all decided to get the Texas flag tattooed somewhere on their bodies. Now that’s commitment to a state!
Besides our state pride I’ve compiled a list of a few things that I love about Texas (In no particular order):
- George Strait- Duh it’s King George!
- REAL Tex-Mex- you haven’t lived until you’ve tried it
- Austin- even if you hate Texas you’ll love Austin
- Dallas Cowboys- haters gonna hate
- Boys in Wranglers- obvious
- Manners- we were taught “yes ma’am” and “no sir” at a young age opening/holding open doors is also a big thing here
- Texas Rangers- Baseball not Chuck Norris, but he’s cool too
- Texas Country- great concerts on a summer night
- Dallas fashion- shopping is great here
- Smell of piney woods in East Texas- windows down car rides are the best
- Boys in pick-up trucks- another obvious one
- Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth- World’s largest Honky Tonk
- Luckenbach Texas- Just ask Willie, Waylon and the boys
- San Antonio river walk- best during their Festival of Lights around Christmas time
- Houston rodeo- huge rodeo with even bigger concerts
- Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Dirk Nowitzki, Nolan Ryan, Josh Hamilton…I can keep going
- Big hair- flat is wack
- State Fair of Texas- this years fried concoction is Fried Girl Scout Cookies!
There are plenty of other things I could name off but to spare those who are bored or annoyed by this post I’ll stop. I’ll end with “God Bless Texas!”
