missing YOU!



This morning, I'm missing my home state of Texas ... Blue Bell ice cream, bluebonnets, warm weather, humidity, (not mosquitos) :), flowers in bloom in my Mom's backyard, the smell of all the flowers in bloom in my Mom's backyard, shorts, tank tops and sandals, neighborhood swimming pools, my Houston peeps (ok, well Texans in general), the awesome Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the wonderful Houston Rockets who just made the playoffs! :) I don't know when I'll be able to make it down there soon, but at least I know that our nearby Norfolk friends are anxiously waiting and praying for us. It's so nice to feel wanted and I can't wait to see them again and how big all their kids have grown in the 2.5 years since we left (well, 1.5 years since we visited)! :)

I can go eat some Blue Bell for you! ;-) I can make the excuse - I mean sacrifice!

The bluebonnets seem late this year...haven't seen too many of them. The early Easter seems to have thrown my flower tracking abilities out of whack.

I have eaten some blue bell for you - and it was not a sacrifice! :-) Our bluebonnets are looking great out in the Austin area toward Brenhem...I must have seem them on the way to the Blue Bell plant...hehe

I'm sure you miss Houston - i can't even imagine being so far away from family for so long. I think Austin is a long way away from family! Good luck getting ready for the move! Hey - at least you have beautiful flowers up there that we don't have down here.

I had some Homemade Vanilla that was hanging out in our fridge! I wish it was Cookies and Cream though!

Deborah said...

we just had cookies and cream and the new 'moo tracks'. the boys loved them! sorry your missin' out Leigh!

Leigh said...

mmmm Blue Bell Cookies 'n' Cream is one of the best! I've also had Moose Tracks and it was very good. I miss the Strawberry ice cream and the Banana and Pecans (or something like that). :) Well, at least I can have it if I find a Outback Restaurant. They ship BB to all their stores all over the country!

Outback is on the left in the Waterside Mall next to the Sheraton.

There's also one in Seekonk, MA.

I was checking out the Blue Bell site today to see if they have pineapple sherbet and look what I found!

That's amazing!! I didn't know they did that! Maybe we'll have an ice cream party as an excuse to order. :) Thanks!
