Today I decided to share with you a few facts, tidbits, and silly observations from the past few weeks in South Texas.
~My mom (aka Beebs) is the best cook on the planet. The woman can make anything taste absolutely wonderful.
~Texas girls don't leave the house without some bling...it's even on their flip-flops!
~Boudin is pretty tasty.
~My straight-and-static-filled-in-Montana hair has an amazing capacity for absorbing humidity. It could be, at times, even described as verging on big.
~Sweaty underpants are unpleasant. (Sorry, TMI???)
~Just in case you ever come down here and need to know this--a stark is a bird typically known as a stork. Jay was pretty confused one evening during a conversation with my uncle.
~Texas BBQ is all about the meat.
~Big Red is a soda consumed in massive quantities down here. I find it to be rather horrifying.
~The low was in the 60's last night and one of my Texas friends needed a sweatshirt. I love that. :)
~My aunt and uncle have a tiny horse (dubbed Tiny Pony by my girls) that acts like a dog. Really...Tiny Pony follows the girls around and also likes to sniff our dog's rear-end. I had no idea.
~Texas has bugs that intimidate even Shelby. He informed me yesterday that he saw a massive flying beetle type bug with huge pinchers that actually scared him. This is a very rare occurence for Shelby. The kid has ALWAYS loved bugs!
~My family loves me without conditions. It's been lovely to be close enough to be reminded of this.
~People are darn friendly around here. It's just not uncommon to find yourself in a conversation with a complete stranger while in the parking lot of the grocery store or in some other random setting. It's nice.
Have a wonderful day, Friends! Love to you all and thanks for reading! :-)
