Texan Transformation

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 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.


  1. You make me laugh! I love that you now have boots, really does make my day. Texahoman sounds like a great name actually and I think you should start telling people that. Hope Amarillo is fun, I miss you girls!

  2. i'm going to need some boots now too!

  3. Ew. Boots with athletic shorts?! Terrible!

    But I'm loving yours. Perhaps I'll bring mine on my next trip to Amarillo...
