To celebrate Texas Independence Day, on March 2nd, we hosted the #MakeSamProud Contest and asked y’all to post a picture of you being the MOST TEXAN EVER, and we received a ton of amazing pictures. It was hard, but we narrowed it down to the first, second and third place winners that will be receiving Texan prizes, and the Honorable Mentions that were just too good not to mention.
Amber’s Class – “Adventures of a Texas History Teacher”
REASON: Props to Amber for teaching her kids all about that good ol’ Texas Pride! We love to see this class of lil’ trippers reppin’ the Lone Star State!
