i can barely contain myself.
fall is my most favoritest favorite season! i've been putting this post off because the weather forecast is still 95+ degrees and, well, i don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like fall to me. really, that doesn't even sound like summer. that sounds like hell (not the cuss word. the place. although living in it makes me WANT to cuss). but when i take my dog out in the morning, it's a little cooler. and when i go to pier one, there are lots of browns and greens and oranges, leaves and corn cobs. CORN COBS! what says "fall is coming!" more than a bunch of harvested crops!?!?
joel makes fun of me because i am a list girl. i make lists for everything. going shopping? make a list! need to clean?? list what i need to hit! vacation? packing list! chore charts! wish lists! bucket lists!
you get the point. i love a good list. so here, in no particular order is my "things i love about fall" list:
- football season-corn hole, tailgating, hot wings, wearing jerseys, face paint
- carnivals and fall festivals
- hot cider
- caramel apples
- leaves changing colors
- crisp mornings
- comfy boots
- disney movies, like halloweentown and hocus pocus. i am a child. i know.
- cute jackets
- pumpkin spice latte's
- the way hot chocolate warms your hands when you are standing outside
- being able to straighten my hair and then going outside and it STAYING that way
- halloween. now that i have a child, it brings a whole new excitement of dressing her up.
- hay rides
- corn fields
- pumpkin patches
- fall candles scents
- soups in bread bowls
- mulled cider
really? my list could go on. I. LOVE. FALL. and everything about it. last fall was my first true fall in four years, and i didn't even realize how MUCH i had missed it. hawaii doesn't really get seasons. it's either rainy, or it's sunny. the winter is a little cool....like 70-75 rather than 75-80. so i mean. you know. BIG change there.
now go make your own "things i love about fall list" and share it with me! and since we are celebrating, make sure to visit other people and wish them a happy "fall is almost here" week (yep, i just made it up. it's what i do).
