I know I have some mixed followers, some of you live in Texas but most of you do not so I wanted to do a post with fun facts about Texas. I hope I found some you did not know!
Date of Statehood: December 29, 1845
Capital: Austin (A weird place, which I do not like but five of my family members work in by necessity of the family carpool.)
Largest City: Houston (The home of perpetual fog yet beautiful beaches)
Flower: Bluebonnet (Which covers the landscape during spring and it GORGEOUS)
Tree: Pecan (Which in Texas pecan is pronounced pa-con and it’s the correct way. =D )
Bird: Mockingbird (Because we mock anyone who tries to measure up. ;D)
Nickname: Lone Star State
Motto: Friendship (A very appropriate nickname. =) )
State anthem: Texas, Our Texas
Before statehood: Republic of Texas
Rank by size: 2’nd (Outdone by Alaska, but if you melt all its ice we would be first. ;) )
Things unique to Texas
H-E-B: an awesome grocery store which has quarter sodas and the nicest people. =)
Blue Bell Ice Cream: Honestly I feel sorry for you if you have never tasted Blue Bell. Its heavenly. If Jesus wanted to convince his disciples he was God he would have given them Blue Bell. They also have some very fun Texas type seasonal flavors like Pumpkin Pecan Pie and Blackberry Cobbler.
Thanks for stopping by!
