So you are moving to the Lone Star State? Congratulations!
Many of us were not born here, but got to Texas as fast as we could.
A BIG TEXAS WELCOME
fun facts to get you prepared and excited for the move:
1. Yes, everything is bigger in Texas from steak sizes
(72oz steak anyone?), temperatures ( 115 degrees
has actually happened), speed limits (please move
to the right lane if you don’t drive a couple miles
over the speed limit), wind speeds (Chicago, the
windy city, has nothing on Dallas) to the huge state
pride (don’t be surprised when you see a Texas flag
on every corner).
2. Dallasites strongly believe in the “more is better”
concept, and enjoy more restaurants and shops
per capita than any other city in America. Yes,
barbeque and Tex-Mex are separate food groups
here. Yes, your Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus
sales rep calls you to check in.
3. The love of high school football in Texas is hard
to quantify.... but $60 million for a public school
stadium seems about right. The bright lights of a
beloved Texas Friday night tradition burn as bright
as they always have.
SOME SURE SIGNS YOU ARE BECOMING A TRUE TEXAN:
Stage 1 – “Texas is a way of life” Texan:
You start waving and smiling back at strangers
You start using “y’all” vs “you guys”
Your home has at least one Texas star décor item
You can say 110 degrees without fainting, and when the
temperature drops below 75 degrees, you feel a bit chilly
Stage 2 – “Don’t mess with Texas” Texan:
Your cowboy boots collection includes fancy going out
boots, everyday dressy boots, casual boots, work boots, etc.
You flip out when it snows, buy firewood and raid a grocery
store with the rest of us
You traded your prius for a pick up truck
You proudly fly the Texas flag, wear a local sport team
hoodie, drink Dr. Pepper, eat Blue Bell ice cream, own a
gun and have a dog who owns you.
Stage 3 – “Texan-to-the-bone” Texan:
You buy a ranch. Not the salad dressing. A real ranch.
With cows. And horses. And grass. And a big Texas sky.
You thank your lucky stars you live in Texas!
