A couple of days ago, we all confessed our guilty pleasures. Two guilty pleasures that I totally forgot to mention are iPhone/iPad cases and graphic T-shirts. When I find either of these items, I must have them or I will die. These two pieces from the Katydid Collection are no exception! I love all of the state outline shirts I've seen, so I was thrilled to get my hands on one of my own!
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm not a native Texan. I was born and raised in Midlothian (a suburb of Richmond) Virginia. When I was 17 I moved to Tennessee for college. Post college, I spent a couple of years in Kentucky for work, then begged and pleaded to be moved back to Knoxville! Then in August of 2012, I picked up, left everything in Knoxville behind (except General of course) and moved to the great state of Texas.
Now that I've been here for exactly two years, this big ole state is starting to feel like home. I love so many things about Texas, from the pro sports teams, to the culture, to the new friends I've made, to how proudly both the American and Texan flags are flown all over the state. If you had asked me to pick a state outlined shirt a year ago, I still would have selected the state of Tennessee, but I've fallen in love, head over spurs with the state of Texas in the past year, and I think it is getting pretty serious!
I'm assuming, after that statement, that my Texan card has just been approved! Just don't ask me to root for the Longhorns (#TennesseeIsTheRealUT).
