The stars at night are big and bright…

DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS! Get ready for some serious bragging to happen. It’s the only way to talk about TEXAS. And yeah, I’ll probably put TEXAS in all caps every time because in my head I can hear Jon saying it in a thick (unnatural though) Texas accent. Jon and I were talking about starting a website kindof like TFM or MLIA or FML where you just put your phrase about Texas, followed by, TEXAS! We started listing some like: Rick Perry, TEXAS! Grass is greener, Koolaid is stronger, TEXAS! “Texas toast you might have heard of it, if not you’re gay”, TEXAS! (you have to quote that Texas Marine video) and silly things like that… But it got me thinking how much we do have to brag about here in Texas. We obviously have the best state and we are so glad to call it home. Texas gave us by far the best music: George Strait, ZZ Top, Willie Nelson, Ghostland Observatory, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pat Green, Robert Earl Keen, and Roger Creager. You can take a road trip and never leave your own state but see Enchanted Rock, the Hillcountry, Frio River and Garner State Park, Big Bend, and cities like Austin for the hippies, Houston for the money, Dallas for the Cowboys, San Antionio for the Spurs and the river walk, Gruene for history, Amarillo for the Palo Duro Canyon, Galveston or Corpus Christi or Padre Island for the beach. And don’t even get me started on the food… so good. Tex-Mex, best Bar-B-Q EVER and steaks and seafood and just everything that is good. Forget NY chefs, they cannot make tamales like they do down here. Not to mention, the first class school of Texas A&M calls this grand state its home.

God Bless Texas

To get you in the mood for loving Texas,

My new favorite song about Texas
