I suppose I'm on my way to a semi-Texan transformation. My very best friend, Jaclyn, came home (Amarillo) for the holiday weekend and I couldn't have been happier! We spent the whole weekend with her fantastic family and I loved every minute of it. Seriously...Amarillo breeds some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Jac helped me ease into my Texas transformation. With her assistance I officially own my very first pair of.....
I know, I know...how did I not already own a pair?!? Yes, I know I'm from Oklahoma - that doesn't mean I own cowboy boots. Yes, I know I lived in Texas for 4 years while I went to Baylor - I didn't want to "conform" to the style of wearing boots with Nike athletic shorts. Who even started that?!?
Why did I feel the need to NOW buy new boots?!? Well Jaclyn's O-so-Amazing family took me to a RODEO!!!!! O yes....I LOVE rodeos! Once we got there I was quite relieved that I purchased the boots. Everyone was wearing them! I had never seen so many cowboys in one place. And before you ask I will just answer you....No, there were no cute cowboys around. Shucks.
So I will never claim to be a "Texan". I'm an Okie through and through. I'm asked on a daily basis where I'm from because clearly I don't sound like I'm from here with the cute west Texas accent. Maybe I can just start claiming to be a Texahoman. I kind of like the sound of it...for now.
