  2. Hi My Name is Fiona - and I'm a Minnohomian - I think...... well, I could any combo of things - Minnesota or Michigan - but OK keeps sucking me back LOL! At least this time I brought my husband with.

    It is indeed culture shock (I live a little north but sometimes we are just a suburb of TX).

    I'm popping in for the party. Newest follower. I'll be happy to read about your transition - I'm pretty sure it can take a lifetime. Misadventures Of Mom of 3

  3. Love the blog name. I'm always saying that soon there will be so many people in Texas from California that we might as well call it Texifornia. ;)

  4. Stopping by to say HI for the UBP! Can't wait to read more of your blog. I'm sure it was quiet a culture shock going from CA to TX!
