Thrifting in College Station

Thrifting in College Station

I am married to an Aggie, being from Oregon I didn’t really care but I have found out that it is a BIG deal if you live in Texas, you are either for Texas or an AG.

Honestly, I love to go to sporting events for all the peripheral things going on …. the cheer leaders, crowd watching, “air guitars” on the screen, fights and anything else that catches my attention.

Texas =Big Hair … I grew up thinking everyone in Texas had big hair!  🙂

Ok ... lets start with the obvious ... Texas is known for BIG hair!

This weekend we went to the mens basketball game on Saturday and then the women’s game on Sunday.   I finally asked if I could have a few minutes in a thrift store 🙂   the only thing I could find open on a Sunday was Goodwill.    I love to visit thrift stores in other towns!  First of all I pre-judged, being I was in a college town, I thought the students would clean out a thrift store … I was wrong, there was tons of good stuff!!!!

Being that I lived in Oregon until 10 years ago, I have to admit that I find some things in Texas amusing.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Texas and I love the things that make Texas unique.   This is my favorite bumper sticker …

I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could!!!!!!   My favorite bumper sticker!
