Bring on Fall!

I am ready for Fall.

There I said it. I got it it out. I feel free.

You see, when we are in the middle of winter and I'm so cold that I can't think straight I promise myself that when summer comes I won't complain about the heat. No matter how hot it is.

And then we had 50, yes FIFTY (I needed to type out the actual word to be able to capitalize it for more dramatical purposes) (yes I'm pretty sure I just used the word dramatical in the wrong context but I like it. Just go with it) (I actually thought I made up the word dramatical until I googled it and found out it is indeed a word. I'm smarter (or not as smart?) than I thought) (I feel like I need to start over with my sentence this got entirely too long).

We had FIFTY days of 100+ degree heat. I think that gives me an excuse to moan and groan just a bit.

But I managed to keep the complaining to a minimum. Only on days when it was over 100 did I let myself complain.

So 50+ straight days of complaining isn't too bad, right?

Anyways, all of that to say I'M OVER THE HEAT AND READY FOR FALL.

Today was a BEAUTIFUL day. Somewhere in the 70's, sunny, just the perfect amount of wind. PERFECT. So I let my mind go there, I let it dive into the Fall-ish time because hopefully, it's just around the corner.

And then, because I like to do things that I proclaim I hate, I started a "Fall" Pinterest board. Yes I once said I hated Pinterest, yes I'm now addicted. I bet you saw that coming.

In my defense I was home alone on a Saturday night, with nothing on TV and a computer in my lap. It was all downhill from there.

Here are some Fall things I pinned.

Scarves!!! I wear scarves with everything in the Fall/Winter. Probably a little too much. And I love all these colors!! I need a scarf for every single color of the rainbow!

Yummy munchies!! I love that these are halloween/fall colored! I would love to make a big batch of this and take to everyone up at work. So fun!






I love love love these pumpkins and really want to try and do them this year. Going to a pumpkin patch in the Fall is one of my favorite things to do and now I have a child to take!!!! I'm going to take him and sit him on the pumpkins and take millions of pictures while he is awkwardly posed on a pile of pumpkins. I'm so excited!





And how cute (and huge, sorry about that) are these printables for Fall?? Maybe it would be good if I replaced the CHRISTMAS printables that are still hanging in my dining room. I'm so classy I know.



I want to make this. I think I can I think I can I think I can. Maybe if I keep repeating that I will actually do it. I think this would be so cute hanging on my front door.


And these witches hats? ADORABLE. Not to mention yummy. Weight watchers WHO?


Again, say it with me, I think I can I think I can I think I can.


And I can't wait to warm these yummy Fall scents in my warmer.

Also, not pictured above but things I'm EQUALLY looking forward to are:
Boots, carmel apples, football games (here and there, lets not go overboard people, one a month is plenty) and pumpkin spice lattes.

Although, I have to admit, every year I think I'm so excited for Fall and ready to drink a pumpkin spice latte and then I drink one and remember I absolutely hate the nasty thing, its just the *thought* of the said latte that gets me all giddy.

But for traditions sake I will drink one this Fall and remember how I hate it so.

Are you ready for Fall??

I was kinda meh about fall but then you posted about caramel apples and I GOT REAL EXCITED.

Bring on the caramel apples. If only I could find a good pair of boots that fits this year...

Rachel said...

I totally feel the same way. Bring on the pumpkins, the boots leggings, the TV premiers, and the candy corn! I cannot wait!

Hi there,
New follower! Coming over from Blue Eyed Bride. I hate to see the end of summer but I have to agree I love all things fall. Some of the best things are part of fall.

I'm with you. We've had 70+ days of 100 degree heat here in Central Texas. Now there are fires everywhere. I'm sick of it.

Courtney said...

THIS post just got me really excited for fall!!! I'm over the heat now too and that's coming from a summer lover

Courtney said...

Ahh I can't wait for fall!! And I don't really like pumpkin spice lattes either! I mean, they're ok, but nothing special. Have you tried the Gingerbread latte? SO much better! Yum!!

Mere said...

Ok, instead of the pumpkin spice latte, try the caramel apple spice if you have never had it. It is amazing (if you like apple cider type drinks!) I am SO ready for fall too!

Jordan said...

Just this week I found my mind slipping into fall mode as well. It all started when my friend was talking about a pumpkin gingerbread trifle recipe that she has... Now I can't wait until the weather is right for such a treat :)

Stef said...

I'm pretty sure I've been ready for fall since July! Haha. But really...it is my absolute FAVORITE season and I am so excited. In fact, I busted out my fall decorations today already! I love the ideas you pinned from Pinterest!

The Brown Family said...

We have had +70 days of 0ver 100 degree heat. Last Sunday, 112! We are so ready for fall here in Texas! It's only 90 today and it's so exciting.

I love the little BOO in the photo frames. I am definitely making those!

Lauren said...

thank goodness for the Fall temps we've got coming up this week! I love all those Pinterest images...especially the pumpkins with the initials! too cute!

Tricia Nae said...

We have had close to 70 days of over 100...and not just 101 and 102...we had LOTS of 108 degree days. I'm SO over it. Thankfully, today was awesome!!! I'm with you though...can't wait to wear boots and drink pumpkin spice fraps and watch football!!

Shelley said...

I was ready for fall before reading this but now I am even more pumped! woo hoo!

Shannon said...

I Facebooked "Oh happy Pumpkin Spiced Latte Day" today... With the temp at 50 this morning, it was totally in order!

Sarah said...

I love Fall, and now I love it even more because it means I am getting married soon!
I was wondering if I can purchase scentsy products from you since I am in Ohio.
Have a great day!

Ashley said...

omg, you should see how much fall stuff I have pinned on Pinterest. It's out of control and there is no way on earth I could make everything or have anywhere to display it! Haha. You should try the eggnog latte, it is WAYYYYYY better than pumpkin spice. Uh, if you like eggnog :)

Sara said...

I absolutely love fall! I'm probably too excited about wearing sweaters, boots and scarves. And I agree about the pumpkin spice latte--I just cannot like it!
