Linking up with these wonderful ladies for a new link up that is
all about Texas! How cool is that?
For us Texans, it is all about the symbol.
I say that for one reason.
What other state has a shape so cool, that people make
everything out of it! From cake pans to wall clocks, you can find the
shape of Texas everywhere. Then again it is also the attitude. We are proud people.
One thing that I have found in many travels, no matter if you are acting a fool...
you can say that you are from Texas and people reply, "OH" it's accepted.
We are suppose to be loud and crazy!
Yet on the flip side of that, you can be all dolled up to the hilt.
Wear all your night time bling during the day, and that's all right also,
why you ask?
Because, we are from TEXAS that is why!
Only explanation we ever need. It explains it all.
Okays so enough about that. When the theme was first announced for the
link up, I was so excited! Then the flood of what to do first. Which didn't last long,
only as long as it took for me to reach over and grab for my Dr Pepper!

My favorite two pictures as of late...
Did you know that Dr. Pepper is one year older than Coca Cola?
Sure is... Since 1885
Dr. Pepper got it's first major exposure at the World's Fair
in St. Louis in 1904
In 1923 the current owners decided to move Dr. Pepper to Dallas.
In the 1950's the period was dropped after "Dr" for several reasons.
One reason was it interfered with log designs. The period looked smudged.
The second was to keep people from thinking that it had medical value.
Not sure which jingle has been the most popular for the company but
I think in my opinion that "I'm a Pepper" has to be.
At least it is my favorite. I remember as a little girl getting
up and dancing around signing it whenever the commercial came on.
In case you don't know what I am talking about;
I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper,
She's a Pepper, we're a Pepper.
Wouldn't you like to be a pepper, too?
I love Jelly Belly
I get these every time we go to Bass Pro Shop!
(blurry pictures, sorry)
Ice Cream Topping...
What better Texan product but Dr Pepper in BBQ sauce...
Only place I have found is HEB...
DUH.. if it's Texas, it's at HEB
Do you drink Dr Pepper?
Let me know what you are drinking?
Well my lovelies,
that's about all for today,
y'all stay sassy!
