19 Signs You Married a Texan
i married a texan. if you would have told me i would end up marrying someone from texas, i would have said ‘yeah right, y’all‘ in the most sarcastic tone i could muster. as we all know, life has other things in store for us and sometimes that involves a cowboy. i grew up near denver, colorado and my husband hails from a suburb in houston, texas (his hometown is called ‘humble’ but you don’t pronounce the ‘h’ – no joke).
i have noticed quite a few differences between him and his texan friends compared to people not from texas so what better way to call these out than to show you a few signs you married a texan!
- they can wear jeans when it’s 93 degrees out
- they will go to battle that their BBQ is ‘the best!’
- when you go to get ice cream, they will inevitably say ‘blue bell is better’
- sometimes they refer to you, as a single person, as “y’all”
- they can eat soup when it’s 98 degrees out
- if meat isn’t part of the meal, then it is just a ‘snack’
- they call samoas girl scout cookies ‘caramel delights’ and tagalongs ‘peanut butter patties’
- they call blowing cotton ‘summer snow’
- when they see a texas license plate while not in texas, they have been known to roll down their window and ask the other driver where they are from in texas
- they can’t resist american-flag-themed things (but still prefer a lone star to 50 stars)
- the desire to drive truck is apparently in their blood
- the boys often give the girls in high school massive “mums” before the homecoming dance
- they will try to wear their boots to any and all occasions
- they think that driving 45+ minutes to a friend’s house is ‘not that far’
- butter is a part of their food pyramid
- they love a place called “whataburger” but constantly pronounce it “waterburger”
- if there is something in the shape of texas, they will most likely have an unrelenting urge to purchase it
- when they say you have “big hair” – it’s a compliment
- in my personal experience, being married to a texan has provided me with a kind man, friendly person and hard worker!
