If ya' ain't from Texas... just wouldn't understand.

❤ the lone star state and I'm extremely proud of being from Texas. 
Most of us just can't help it; it's bred into us. 
We take pride in our beautiful state, and, yeah maybe it's led us to be a bit cocky because we think we're the best, but we've got plenty of reasons to back it up!

I'm doing a blog link-up with Amanda for Texas Tuesday to share what being a Texan means to me.

(Don't know what Texas Tuesday is? It's a weekly link-up hosted by Jana and Amanda, that's open to anyone, not just Texans. All you need to do is write about something Texas related, post their little button in your post, then go back here and link up! That's it!)


Things I love about Texas:

Eating juicy Texas grapefruit.

Rodeos and barbecues.

Tailgating Texas Longhorn football games.

Bleeding burnt orange.

Hook 'Em Horns! \m/ 

Floatin' the river {toobin'}.

Starry nights, cowboy boots, and bonfires.

Live music shows in Austin.

Sayings like y'all, dang, heck yeah, fixin' ta, and howdy.

Texas also means the best family and friends around. :)


Boy, do I love Texas.



  1. I LOOOOVE this!!! VERY unfortunately, I do not live in Texas, however, my grandmother was born in McAllen, and I have a TON of family in the Houston area. Eventually, I hope to live there. I found your blog through the hop it! I'm a newbie too - but I certainly haven't figured out everything you have yet. Time to start researching, I guess! :)

    1. Small world - I grew up in the Valley (the Rio Grande Valley) in a really small town called La Feria! It's about 45 minutes from McAllen I think? My dad used to work for UPS in McAllen. And I have family in the Houston area too! If you ever move to Texas, definitely try to move to the Austin area! I may be biased, but I think it's the best city Texas has to offer... by far! :)

      Thanks for stoping by my blog. I hope you'll stick around! I've got so much to learn about blogging, but if you ever have any questions about something I'd be happy to help. So just shoot 'em my way! I literally just got done making a blog button... I can send you the links I used to make things like that if you want. I'd be nowhere if it weren't for help from blog tutorials!

      Anyway, happy blogging! :)

  2. I, too am from the great state of Texas. I live about an hour from Dallas. I agree, Austin IS the best city Texas has to offer! I found you via a blog hop and so glad I did. I absolutely adore your blog so far. I'm pretty new to this too! By the way- I'm so grabbing your button and posting it on my page! Hope you have a fantastic night & can't wait to read more from you!

    <3 from Texas!
