West Texas

I'm tired. I'm not whining, but I've been traveling like crazy, trying to stay on top of two grad school classes and trying to maintain my full-time job. With that being said, I'll try not to fall too far behind on my blogging. (But Kristen, thanks for the nudge!) However, I don't have too much to say tonight. So instead, I'll give you two reasons why I love being from West Texas:


















Number of times I've been pulled over for speeding on to Lubbock = about 5

Number of tickets I've gotten = 0

I got this warning on Thursday outside of Coleman. In my experience, DPS is much nicer the closer you get to West Texas.
















While filling up at the United in Slaton, I noticed something at the brand new McDonalds. (That is big news in Slaton - everyone is like, "Did you know we got a McDonalds?") There were two girls on horses in the drive-through. Now that is something you don't see every day.


And, let me just say... it was windier here in Austin today than it was in Lubbock.

I'm glad you didn't get a ticket. You have those eyes, though... the big, batty, puppy ones no officer can resist.

Oh, and that might have been Karly at the McDs drive thru. I'm going to ask her.

I LOVE that you came in for my dinner. You're the BEST BIG SISTER EVER. Period.

I can't believe the officers could possibly be nicer than our lovely APD! And I can't believe the horses-that's awesome! I've never even seen that in Wharton!

I honestly don't know how you do it. Your full time job keeps you so busy, what with the traveling and the Saturday work and the work you have to constantly take home. Add the graduate school classes that you must take on line (which, I hear, are quite time intensive) and you still manage to make a little time to support your sister. What is your secret?

Oh, how I love me some West Texas-ness. Glad I was able to call it home for as long as I did and even though I don't have any family left there, I'll still call the Hub City my hometown.

Well, I wasn't so lucky in Coleman one time...and Coach Pope couldn't even get me out of it! But I do still love West Texas...and horses at the drive-thru!

Really, I think that was Katrina and/or her family. I have seen that horse before.

Yeah, I have never gotten a ticket either (except that time in the school zone, but it was dismissed)!
