Hi, I was not born in Texas, but I have lived here most of my life. I married a Texan, and my three daughters were born here. I am an implant.
If you spoke to me you would never know. I have a very thick Texas accent, that gets thicker depending on who and what I am talking with or about. Especially if the who is a little old man who needs to get up ad walk after heart surgery.
I blame this accent on the fact that I was in West Texas for 4.5 years of my life attending college.
Last weekend I used my map app that basically has the same voice as Siri, and I have to say I was disappointed. I think that Siri should share the same accent as the geographic area she is being used.
- It is a riiiiiight.
- It is pronounced copp-ell, not copple.
- She should say things like “Honey in 1.5 miles you will need to turn left to access hiiighway 35W.”
If anything, it would provide some good comic relief.
Now for bigger news.
I bought RED pants. Yes, I bought red pants. I really cannot believe that I am going to wear color below the waste in the form of a pant. You see, I am built like JLo, and all I am seeing is a sign for the worlds largest tomato. Everyone will be disappointed when they look really close and see that it is only my butt.
These are the pants that I bought. I chose them because I already own a pair of skinny boyfriend jeans, and I love how they fit. Plus, they were only $25 which is the max I will pay on a pair of pants.
Now to come up will all sorts of different outfit ideas.
I lead a very casual life, and do not have the need for dressy clothes. The shirts above are pretty much my staples during the Spring and Summer. I am thinking I want a bunch of graphic tees this year. Funny sayings, and pictures. Like this one
Next, I came up with some shoe ideas. Some I already own, and the others I would like to own.
I own pair of flip flops. Yes, you heard correctly, I only own one pair of flip flops. They are black, and I have owned them for 11 years. For me, I do not see the purpose of having all sorts of colors, beads, feathers, etc. I like it simple. I would really like a pair of ankle boots like the ones in the pic.
Finally, I have to accessorize.
I really want a fedora. I think I will buy one for each of my girls and we can all be twinkies when we run around this summer. Aviator glasses are so cool. A charm necklace and turquoise earrings will finish it off. I pretty much always wear the same earrings and necklace. I just bought this and love it.
So here I sit patiently awaiting the arrival of my pants. My very red pants.
I hope they fit
