Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...


You can take the girl out of Texas...

...but you best have a cold margarita waitin' for her when she comes to visit.

What I'm trying to say, is...I'm-a comin' home! Woohoo! I finally got my ticket and I'll be visiting the great state of Texas from March 5th to May 10th.

What this means for you, dear reader, is that I'll have a nice, warm computer at my disposal 24 hours a day. I just might start blogging again. I'll also be able to stalk all of my blog friends on a regular basis like a good girl.

I can't wait to see my sister's legendary belly. She has said that she is feeling some contractions already, but Misty, cross 'dem legs, girl. I'll be home in just one short week and I expect that baby to wait for me.

You know what the best part of it is? I'll be packing flimsy summery things which means MORE ROOM FOR SHOES! Isn't that fantastic?

You've been put on alert, Tex-Mex. Watch out, 'cause here I come.

Dang, girl! We're going to overlap being on the same continent (again) for about 10 days! I'm going home Wed for two weeks. We'll have to coordinate one of these times since I went to school in Texas and I love me some Tex-MEX!! Taco Cabana, hot tortillas and queso at 3am...che goduria!!

If you ever tire of Tex-Mex, hop the border and try New Mex-Mex.
Have a nice vacation

Welcome back to our side of the pond! Hope you have a great trip! And darn you for making me crave margaritas at 1 p.m. on a workday... I'll hold out, because I
have a feeling it'd be frowned upon. ;)

More room for shoes is always a good idea.

Ooohhh, I am so jealous. I've only been back in Italy a MONTH and I already miss Tex Mex...I did bring some velvetta and rotel back with me - not the *best* way to make queso - but it does the trick! :-)

Enjoy Texas!
