Bean is not a native Texan (*gasp*), he's a Coloradoian (yeah, I know that's not really what they call themselves, but really there's no good way to say that, Coloradoer??).
I was trying very hard to work out the logistics on that while we were dating..
Me: So are Coloradoians Yankees??
Me: But you're not Southerners, you drink your tea with no sugar!!
Me Ok.. I give up, what the hell are Coloradoians??
Bean: We're Switzerland.
So we're going to Switzerland to visit the in-laws.
It's really not a dreaded trip - Mom Bean & Dad Bean really are ok. And I adore his sister, Sofia and his nephew, Grant. And since Sofia's a teacher, she and Grant will both be on vacation - more time with me!!
And don't worry, I'm going to be a good little blogger and post some stuff for ya'll while I'm away, though I can't promise to be prompt with my comment replies - in-laws are so damn touchy when you ignore them.. But I know you'd all die of boredom if it weren't for me.
