Let the countdown begin!
The chalk board above hangs on the side of my fridge and says just what I’m longing for. I have a deep, deep, love for fall! My home is decorated with warm comfy colors that the season brings. I will literally stop in my tracks and drool over foliage as it changes and welcomes the season. I often walk out of my house towards the end of September just to breath in that heavenly fall smell (Kent thinks I’m off my rocker when I do this). I don’t know what it is but something in the air changes when fall is approaching………..and I like it!
Even though it’s stinking hot outside and I’m wearing flip flops and tank tops I’m pretending that fall is already here!
I’m getting into my pumpkin spice coffee reserve! I stock piled pumpkin spiced coffee pods for my Keurig before they discontinued them last fall.
I’m starting to get my bake on! Not sure why but I LOVE to bake in the fall. I made banana nut muffins last week and only at half a muffin (trying to watch my sugar intake)! That’s a huge step for a someone who has the biggest sweet
tooth in ALLLLL of Texas!
I’m tired of looking at my spring/summer wreath. I’m ready to put this bad boy back on the door! Maybe I should be the neighborhood rebel and put it on my
door before fall!
When fall is approaching I look forward to………
Pumpkin Spiced Lattes: at Starbucks: I can’t wait until Starbucks brings their pumpkin spiced lattes back. I think they start serving them September 1st!
Yummy Fall Scented Candles: Bath and Body Works has their new Fall candles out. I just visited their site and it looks like that have: Carmel Apple, Cinnamon & Clove, Leaves (my favorite), Kitchen Spice, Creamy Pumpkin, and Autumn!
The Texas State Fair: Above is a picture of Big Tex. He greets all fair goers and is a big part of the Texas Stare Fair experience. Due to my “wedding diet” I will not be eating all the delicious fired foods the fair has to offer but I will take my camera along to snap a few pictures and enjoy a bit of people watching!
Halloween: We LOVE Halloween! Can you guess who we were last year? How could we not be Jon and Kate…….right?
Warm Comfy Clothes: The picture above is a bit excess for fall but you get the point. I think this was taken during the BIG Texas snow storm of 2009 ;o). I love bundling up in jackets and sweaters, so comfy and cozy!
I could go on and on with my fall love affair: fuzzy house shoes, flannel PJ’s, piping hot bubble baths with it’s chilly outside, nice cup of hot tea on a crisp autumn morning, pumpkin bread, fall decor, writing my thankful page in my journal………………
What do you LOVE about fall?
