I love fall. It’s my favorite season. I can go on and on about it. So I decided to come up with a list of my favorite things and why.
Weather – It’s happening! Well, it’s supposed to be happening. It’s supposed to be getting colder. I say supposed to since it’s been on and off 90 degrees all week. It’s supposed to be 92 and 96 degrees this weekend as well. I’ve been waiting for hoodie, sweater and boot weather. I cannot wait. I love hoodie weather.
Changing Trees – I love the sight of the leaves changing color. When I was younger, that’s how I knew Fall was here. I love the shades of yellow, orange and red that gradually appear. It makes the trees look so magical.
School Supply Shopping – School supply shopping is my favorite. I love shopping for stationery. I love pens and paper – I have tons of notebooks and paper planners. Even though I haven’t been to school in a while, I still catch myself grabbing some items when it goes on sale.
Crunchy Leaves – This could probably go under changing trees, but I felt it was special enough to have its own spot. I have great memories of taking leaves and jumping into the piles, when I lived on the East Coast. I don’t really get the opportunity now, my front yard has a palm tree in it. Whenever I go back to visit, I take a second to enjoy it.
Halloween – My favorite holiday. I love Halloween. I decorate the house. I make everyone watch Halloween movies. I’ve been planning our costumes in advance. Trying to get the kids to agree is another story, but it’s happening! My youngest’s birthday is Halloween weekend; we like to make it into one big celebration.
Football – I grew up on football. It’s important in this household. We are now busy on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays. Please leave a message after the beep.
TV shows – All of my shows are coming back on! I like to binge watch the previous season and have it all fresh in my head. Please tell me I’m not the only person who does that. I also draw out a schedule to add all of the new shows we are interested in on the DVR. I doodle it on a piece of paper, even though a spreadsheet is probably quicker. Sometimes we are interested in too many and have to cut back. It’s pretty bad.
Fashion – I’m not super big into fashion for myself. Not enough time in my day with the kiddos. But I love Fashion Week. I read all the magazines, websites, blogs – anything I can get my hands on to see what’s going on. I try to catch what I can on TV as well.
Seasonal Treats – I’m almost afraid to admit it, but I don’t like pumpkin spice lattes. I’m actually not a fan of pumpkin. But I love that when these seasonal treats are introduced, everything transforms.
My Birthday – I’m a fall baby. What can I say?
What’s your favorite thing about fall?
