Kelley never fails to remind me of this day and I think it’s really unfortunate that the day can’t be a holiday. I’d happily have stayed home and had a couple beers in honor of Texas and it’s amazingness.

The weekend was pretty sweet, but went by too quickly. Saturday was a kitchen shower in FW for Courtney where I proceeded to win the “Guess Which Spice This Is” game. Of course, in the process of sniffing each spice, I definitely snorted a few lines of paprika and curry powder. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel anything but a burning sensation in my nostrils. After that game we played a game where you are given the last name of a married couple on TV and you have to write down the husband and wife’s first names. Mary, of course, nailed the Huxtable’s, but when it came down to the Bundy’s (from Married With Children), my special twin put down Ted for the husband’s first name. Last time I checked, serial killers don’t star in sitcoms.

After the shower, we headed to dumb Jo Anne’s to buy some supplies for the upcoming Ranch Weekend. Our creativity flourished and we decided to have craft night. After sushi, that is. Which we ate at Edohana… the best priced, best tasting sushi in the metroplex. We also stopped at Central Market to buy a BUTTLOAD of antioxidants. The crafting went well and I’m delighted to see Suz’s face when receives her gifts. Muahahaha.

I’ll leave you with some inspiration for today…

Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.
– John Steinbeck

You may all go to hell and I will go to Texas.
–Davy Crockett

“You say you’re not from Texas
Man as if I couldn’t tell
You think you pull your boots on right
And wear your hat so well

So pardon me my laughter
‘Cause I sure do understand
Even Moses got excited
When he saw the promised land

And they’ll say that’s right you’re not from Texas
That’s right you’re not from Texas
That’s right you’re not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway”
-Lyle Lovett
