It's a Texas thing, you wouldn't many times have we uttered that phrase to friends, family, or acquaintances that have never been to our great state? Thanks to the movies, non-Texans think we ride horses to work, we all wear cowboy hats and boots and we all live on farms and raise animals. lol 


I mean we do some unusual, some would call crazy things but we're not aliens! I thought I would share a list for folks who have never been to Texas or no nothing about us Texans. We will call this only in Texas...

  • only in Texas do peeps line up to watch high school kids enter prom like it's a movie premiere
  • only in Texas do we wear flowers or 'mums' that cover the entire front of our bodies for the Homecoming football game-Friday night football is a religion
  • only in Texas will we sit in a line a mile long to get our Chick fil A or Whataburger fix
  • only in Texas will you see men, women, and children wearing shorts year-round
  • only in Texas will we drive 5 or more hours just to get our lake or any body of water fix
  • only in Texas when we ask for Coke it could mean Dr. Pepper, Sprite or any other flavor of soda
  • only in Texas will an entire city shut down for a couple of inches of snow
  • only in Texas do we have all four seasons in one day
  • only in Texas do we look for any excuse to bar b que-birthday, anniversary, cousin coming to visit, let's cook out!

Truly the list could go on. Everything really is bigger and better in Texas!
