texans in hawaii!

it's upside down because we're in distress..
Even if you don't know me very well, there's a good chance that you know I'm Texan. 
Why? Because us Texans are proud of where we're from. 
And why are we so proud? Because Texas is the greatest country on earth, obviously.

Erica explained it best when she said, "Some may say the place we live in is paradise, but I'm sure if you asked any one of us we'd disagree. Don't get me wrong, we think Hawaii is pretty awesome. But you can never take the Texas out of a girl."
My thoughts exactly!

So with all of my Texas pride inside, imagine my excitement when I found fellow Texans here in Hawaii!
One of the best things that I've experienced through blogging is the community of bloggers and getting to meet some of those lovely ladies in person was awesome. The fact that they are from Texas was just the cherry on top.

I brought along my girlfriend too. She's not from Texas, but she is awesome so it evened out.

We decided to meet up at a beach in Kaneohe and take a boat out to the sandbar. Yes, it's just as awesome as it sounds. Here's a few pictures from our little adventure!

So glad E had her underwater camera!
but i'm even more glad that she had this!! 
the water is so clear it's crazy!

I live in LA but go to Texas quite a bit. (I have family in Houston so it is only a 5 hour drive to get there.) I do love Texas and wish I lived there. Hawaii is beautiful too! I went there on my honeymoon and might be taking a trip there next April. Can't wait!
