Saying Goodnight in Texas

Honestly,  Grandma J hasn't lived in Texas that long.....actually it's been four years since she left the OC to live smack dab in the middle of Texas.


She has blogged about how over the top Texans are about everything Texas.   It's not to dis the Great State of Texas, and yes we capitalize that, it's just that no other state gets so crazy about it's shape or size or...well they just don't go crazy.

My Connecticut friend  was served this awesome waffle when she got stranded in Texas recently.   You will never find a waffle shaped like Arkansas or Rhode Island.


Eons ago, when Grandma J was a newbie in Texas, she was shocked to see so much Texas stuff at Bed Bath and Beyond.  Like this complete bed ensemble.


She has always been content with average everyday bed linens.  Seriously it's just a bed!!

Just recently Grandma J was in Bed Bath and Beyond looking for some candles and other miscellaneous doodads, when she happened to circle the corner into the bedding department.

Whoa Nelly!   Was there a whole lot of Texas going on......


Kinda of blah, but still Texas..ish


This would be perfect at Rawhide Ranch....it looks like real cowhide, and it feels like suede.  Of course Grandma J has never seen real cowhide, so she made that part up.


If she had to go Texan, this one would be it.  But really?  Can you fathom a national chain having four bedding themes for your state?


xoxo Grandma J

Are you serious? Other states don't do that kind of thing? I just always assumed that everybody had the same kind of... swelled chest about their state. Even if it's not Texas.
Huh.

Is that waffle upside down?

My SIL is from Texas and he is always saying the same thing! He says the biggest things are the bugs. I would hate that...maybe he's just pulling my chain.
