Texas

So I had a random craving to move to Texas the other night. As in, I turned to the boyfriend in the middle of watching tv and said, "We should move to Texas.". 
Not sure if it had anything to do with the hunting show we were watching. Or that This Old House recently redid a gorgeous home in Austin over several episodes. Or if it was the joke Joel Osteen told the other Sunday:  A man, trying to figure out if he should start going to church, decided to visit as many around the country as possible. In the foyer of each church in California, he'd see a gold phone with a sign that said “Phone Call to God - $20,000.” On the East Coast, he saw the same sign but the call was $10,000. When he reached a church in Texas, the phone was there but the sign read “Phone Call to God - $0.25.” Somewhat confused, he asked the preacher why the call was so much cheaper. The preacher responded, “Son, you’re in Texas now. It’s a local call!”

I really just want(ed?) to be in that warm sunshine and flat, far out land again. Maybe I just miss the aspects of Texas I didn't really get to enjoy when we lived there, being that we were in the city (and Houston at that). Like being able to be in the middle of nowhere, but in a few minutes, be able to enjoy some of the best shopping and eating around. Maybe we'll just visit sometime. Or move in with the best friend when she moves to Austin. :) Sure seems like good place to try out my country lifestyle...
