The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You


Every year we have a family reunion.
And every year it seems to land on the Texas/ OU game day.
I wonder if the football players realize there is a whole room full of people singing the Texas Fight song somewhere.
Cause there is.




My family is pretty serious about this burnt orange stuff.


My grandma is the
matriarch and ringleader.
Officially.

You should see this woman decked out from head to toe.
We are talkin' earrings, two bracelets, necklace, BLING,
The works.
Orange socks. Orange purse.
...You heard me.


My Auntie Anne is second in command to Grandma.
She posted this on her facebook.



With cousins :)



ALSO, I baked something for the event! Yes, me!
A friend I made at the Taylor Swift concert posted a
Blueberry Clafoutis recipe.
AKA Blueberry flan.
I reposted it and everyone demanded it.
But WOW, everyone LOVED it and I'm so happy.
PROOF:

And better yet, Texas won so we're all good.

Your family looks awesome- burnt orange and all! Actually, I think it's a very flattering color. Did you know that clafoutis is a french dish? Yup. :D And by the looks of it, you're an amazing baker!

Go... Longhorns? :D
