The Houston Chronicle recently did a gallery of the most beautiful women (celebrities) that are from Texas. Apparently Men's Fashion magazine, Esquire published some sort of lady list and neglected to share many of our homegrown beauties.

There are lots of reasons that women from the great state of Texas are the best. If you get into an argument with ANYONE North of us, you simply have to say, "Beyonce is from Houston," and everyone will bow down to your knowledge of Lone Star ladies. But if you decided to go "hard mode" about it and not use Queen B as a fix-all, you can choose to lay down the following five reasons we think Texas women are #1. Narrowing it down to only 5 was the hard part. Every woman is special and different, but these are some universal truths about women from the Lone Star State.

    Put Downs

    "Well, Bless Your Heart" This does not mean what you think it means. If you hear this, you have done something that revealed that you are lacking as a person. This is what you say when your child destroys your kitchen. So as an adult, if you hear this, ya done goofed. But for some reason, it is delivered just as sweet as pie. So you may never know.
