47 Signs You're From Texas

"I hate Texas" said no one ever.

47 Signs You're From Texas

1. You're still wearing shorts in Winter

And everyone who isn't used to Texas' winters tells you this.

2. When you say y'all as every other word and have to explain what it means occasionally

3. You prefer sweet tea over unsweet like there's no other form of tea.

And if you're only given unsweet tea, you fake your enjoyment.

4. When you religiously collect Whataburger numbers

5. When you naturally go 85 mph on the highway

6. When you survived the Blue Bell apocalypse

7. You've been so used to the heat for so long, nothing can ever phase you

8. Texas goes wherever you go

9. When half of your out-of-state school is made up of Texans. It's probably because of the Whataburger in town.

"Who here is from Texas?"

10. When you wish the closest mall was the Galleria. A small college town is nice but whenever you need to shop, you can't.

11. Being sad A&M and UT don't play on Thanksgiving. It's the source of most anger issues.

19. The Texas State Fair: Home of fried foods and Big Tex.

20. That feeling when you see the Texas State sign when crossing the border

21. The intense Red River Rivalry with OU every year. Hook'em.

22. Being home to George Strait, The King of Country.

23. Also being home to Queen Beyonce

24. Not knowing when the seasons change. It could be 25 degrees one day and 70 the next.

25. "How do you drive in snow?"

26. "What is snow, I've never seen it before"

27. Getting sunburned by being outside for five minutes.

28. Having Chips and Queso/Guacamole as a meal. Multiple times a day.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
