I Must Be A Lousy Texan.

I love my state. It’s a part of who I am and I take pride in my heritage. But I have a confession to make.

I don’t like EVERYTHING about Texas.

I don’t like cowboy boots. For shame! I know! But I’d much rather trade them for something trendier, like this:

And the cowboy hats? Sorry, but I don’t wear cowboy hats, either. I won’t judge YOU for wearing them, but I would much rather wear something like this:

Or maybe just skip the hat and go for a really cute headband instead:

And while we’re talking about our heads, let’s talk about BIG. HAIR. First of all, I love my flat iron. But if I am going to go big, it will be like this (no Morgan Fairchild hairdo’s over here):

I also don’t like the heat, country music, rodeos, westerns or Wranglers. I wish our fall lasted longer and it would be awesome if we would get a little bit more snow a little bit more often.

On the other hand, I do love living in the country, I appreciate the beauty of a field of bluebonnets, we have amazing pink sunsets, our Spring is gorgeous and long and I LUV the word “y’all.” My FAVORITE pie is the pecan pie (puh-CAHN not pee-CAN,) and I do think that horses are magnificent animals (it’s just that I’m scared of them.) So maybe I do make a lousy Texan in some ways, but maybe I can redeem myself in others?

In the end, it’s all good, and I don’t mind living in the middle of all this “cowboy western stuff.” After all, there’s no place like home. 😉

I love my Texas. I like the boots and hats and heat and hair. I don’t like football. Admitting that could get me deported.

Oh, football! I forgot that one, I’m with you there. ; )
(But then, I’m just really not into sports.)

LOL, this post cracked me up, because I kept thinking of all the ways I always say I love living in New England, but I hate the winter, and how rude people can be, and the fact that our Fall and Spring last only 2 weeks a piece, and…yeah…but I’m a Boston girl and I’ll never leave….go figure.

Also, CUTE BOOTS and I totally agree with your choice of hat! 😉
