I left my home in Texas only 5- 1/2 months ago and I’ve missed the Tex-Mex food so much I have to go back!
Well, these 2 weeks will be filled with…
1- delicious Mexican food made by my family!
2- 100 degree weather in the day and 70 degree weather at night
3- celebrating birthdays
4- celebrating the 4th of July
5- Doctors appointments
6- visits to my friends
8- having at least 1 gelato at Paciugo
One thing is certain…. I have to win the bet I made with my hubby. Living in Italy has been great and has certainly helped me. Since I have arrived, I have lost 17lbs. I have not been on a diet, or “watched” what I ate. I just walk everywhere and eat what I want.. in moderation. Therefore, the bet is… For every pound I gain, I owe Carlo 10 euros. For every pound I lose, he owes me 10 euros.
At this point, it is so much hotter in Texas than it is in Northern Italy, I think I’m going to be ok…. I mean.. who wants to eat and feel miserably full in the Texas heat?? NOT ME! Just give me a Cherry Snow cone & some watermelon and I’ll be happy!
And if you’re wondering if we really do this,
here’s another video.
(listen closely to the audience, you can hear them singing)
*between 1836-1845 Texas was an independent nation called the Republic of Texas.
In 1865, we joined the U.S.A.
