Happy Birthday Texas!

  She is 176 today


Well that didn't take long did you think I was gonna go without mentioning Texas? 
Day 2 and I'm already whining celebrating. 

***Friendly Texas Cheesy Grin and a Big Howdy Wave***

These are a few of my
Texas things around the house...

A shelf in my kitchen.  Wish I could find more Texas plates. 

Yes, I know it's an ash tray. 
You don't really think I would leave a Texas shaped ash tray at the thrift store
to be bought by someone else, do you? 

A vintage "6 Flags Over Texas" ice tea set. 
It was in my mother-in-law's home and one of the things my husband wanted most. 
I treasure it. 

I just love this little guy.  I found it at a garage sale in Kerrville for .25 cents. 

A vintage TWU (Texas Woman's University) plate. 
Where I went to college. 

Dr. Pepper for my daughter's wedding on May 27th. 
She's marrying a Texan.
God love her!!!!

If you want to make a birthday cake for Texas,
here is a recipe for "Texas Sheet Cake"
in my mother-in-law's handwriting. 
We've already made ours today and we will eat it after our
King Ranch Chicken birthday dinner.  :)   

(PS:  I don't bake with margarine.  Gross)

God bless Texas. 

Be blessed and Be a Blessing.

Shug (short for Sugar) is our only native Texan pet. 
She says hide under the curtain for a nap.
