Because It's Hot, Really Hot

May 8, 2013

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear someone say Houston? I bet you're thinking hot or humid. Beyonce is probably the second. I promise we have other things going on here-a booming economy, one of the most multi-cultural cities in the country, and inexpensive housing (debatable depending on where you choose to live). But, the heat takes center stage. Most of the people in my area are not originally from Texas. Actually, I'm struggling to think of one person in my neighborhood that grew up here besides me. It's always funny when they first move here. They just rave about how great it is...and then summer hits. As we're approaching summer, I'm mentally preparing myself for the many months of heat and dreaming of a pool. Here are some of my favorites.

I'll take any one of these, please.


  1. Those are absolutely gorgeous! I have only been to Texas once, in the summer, and honestly I couldn't live there. But people say they about the cold in New England, too, so I guess it is what you are used to!

  2. Amazing spaces! I wouldn't mind living in a hot weather place year round if I have one of those! :)

  3. Yes, I'll take one too please! It really hasn't warmed up much here in New York, I'd really welcome some Houston heat! Have a great weekend:)

  4. Oh my! Not a lot of people have pools here in WA state but I wouldn't mind one of those. At all! All the more reason for us to move somewhere warmer - a pool!
