I started writing this list a month ago when I was still in Texas. I never finished because a call for taco brunch distracted me. A lot happened in those two weeks so I found it easier to capture it in this list.
I know, Texas has probably the most fatties in America. But wouldn’t you just become blissfully fat if you could consume brisket with tamale potato salad, and avocado margaritas on a daily basis? I already wrote an entire post on eating in Texas so I’ll won’t elaborate any more.
Need I say more?
3. Good Ol’ Two Steppin
The image above (and the 1st image) was taken by my dear friend Callie when we to The Broken Spoke last year. It’s the well known country dance hall in Austin. But this year I went to Donn’s Depot which is the place to go if you want to party during the week. These folks have retired decades ago so you can find them dancing and downing tequila shots any night of the week.

That’s my cat. She’s fat with a little head and meows all the time.
6. Friends with Babies
I don’t have babies, nor do I have siblings so I’m patiently waiting for friends to get knocked up so I can pretend to be auntie and get all the perks of being around kids and none of the fuss. Here’s my awesome friend Shayla and her ridiculously beautiful family. We played dress up.
7. Friends without babies and family with or without babies
Gotta love em!
8. Green belt
Duh, central Texas nature is amazing. Its not the most beautiful but the weather is good enough to actually enjoy it 8 months out the year.
9. Red Neckness
It wouldn’t be any fun if we all believed the same thing. I’ve come to realize that widely varying political views is a charm of Texas. It gives it flavor and there’s always something to argue about.
I know I wouldn’t feel this way if I visited burning Texas in June but 90% of the reason why I miss Texas is the heat and sun (sorry family). It was so nice to just wear skirts and bikinis and enjoy the the weather without having to bundle up in a million layers.
