but you can’t take Texas out of the girl. A lot of people think I don’t have a southern accent. Just wait til you get me in Texas 😉 To my husband’s dismay I can turn it up like the biggest hick you’ve ever heard…complete with “I’m fixin’ to …” and all. I personally think my accent is rather charming 😉
What is it about Texans that make us so proud of our state? I think it’s because Texas is the only state that was a republic first (don’t quote me on that one). That pride is in our DNA.
I’m not sure if I’d ever want to live there again (maybe Austin). I’d have to readjust to the humidity all over and get used to my hair looking like a hot mess half the time. However, I do enjoy my rare visits. I feel like I’m coming home to “my people”.
We recently took a road trip to the great state over Thanksgiving. It’s the first time we’ve been there as a whole family in over 6 years! The weather was not typical for that time of year…a muggy 86 degrees on the warmest day. My northern children melted, but we had a great time reaquainting with my family.
Don’t ask about the LONG drive. Just don’t. 😉
