My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

Thursday 13: Things I love about Autumn

Yes, I know it's still officially summer, especially in Texas.  But Autumn and Spring are my two favorite seasons.  I look forward to this time of year from June - September!

Thirteen Things I LOVE about Autumn
  1. Drastically reduced yard work!
  2. Milder weather.
  3. Ability to spend hours outside without risk of heatstroke.
  4. Fall Festivals!
  5. The holiday season approaching... I'm a sucker for everything from Halloween to Christmas to New Years!
  6. My spirit rejuvenates!  The summer heat really sucks the life out of me.
  7. Sweaters!   Dressing in layers! Back to my favorite wardrobe!
  8. Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread Lattes...   Mmmmmm...
  9. Hockey Season!   This year I REALLY want to go to an NHL game in Dallas.   I will make it happen, and it's on my Day Zero Project list!   SCORE!
  10. Extra time off of work. Wahoo!!!
  11. Improved mood of others around me.    Yes, people get happier when it's not 100 degrees outside! YAY!  That in turn improves MY mood!
  12. Shopping.   I LOVE SHOPPING.  And I love shopping for others even more.   Yep, it's getting to be that time of the year!  YAY!
  13. Lower electricity bills.  AMEN!
If you'd like to join in the fun, just stop off at Thursday 13 and add yourself to the list!  
xoxo!

You and I are on opposite ends. My power bill is about to triple and no one around here has been grumpy because of the heat.
