Not Just Any Friday

Today, Friday February 24, 2012  is a big day. Today we celebrate! Today, we prepare for more celebration coming soon. Today we will don our boots and hats and walk proudly proclaiming the good state of Texas! Why? It's GO TEXAN DAY of course.

We Houston Texans have been enjoying this day for 50 years now and it's as big of a deal as the Fourth of July (okay, maybe not quite as big but pretty darn close). "If you're unfamiliar, Go Texan Day is held the Friday before the rodeo kicks off. People are encouraged to dress in their finest western wear as a means of cultivating the Rodeo spirit" (courtesy of Houston.About.com).

And if yall don't know what the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is all about yall ought to take a vacation down there and check it out, cause I ain't just gunna explain it to ya. ;)

 "Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation
in every sense of the word"
- Author John Steinbeck (Check out some awesome Texas quotes here)

In honor of this momentous occasion some pictures for yall:
I made this senior year of high school working off a picture of my sisters and I from when I was in like the 5th grade. I'm the oldest there.

-"Pledging allegiance to the Texas flag is still optional, but dressing like a “Texan” isn't." (Houston Chronicle).
