Stuff Houston Moms Say

Houston moms, we are something special! We have a certain code of dress {layers…to bundle up under in the brisk morning and then shed when the temps reach three degrees by lunch}, a particular diet {BBQ meets Tex-Mex meets whatever we can find in the pantry}, and we most definitely have our own vernacular here that sets us FAR apart from any other city in the United States {“We’re fixin to go down inside the loop, y’all!”}.  It’s our sweet Southern charm and our big city ways that make us who we are, and to celebrate that – I’ve created a list of stuff that ONLY a Houston mom would say!

Ready?  Here goes…
