Fall is coming

My WeatherBug says that it's 88.6 degrees outside right now, but I'm stuck at work all weekend, so I wouldn't really know. I do know that the nights have been getting cooler and that I have fall on the brain.

Little-known fact about me: I LOVE fall decorations. Leaf wreaths, corn stalks, smiley scarecrows, fake harvest crap-- I love it all. I would buy every cheapo fall decoration at Rite Aid if I let myself. I held myself to one wreath for the door because we don't need to have all of that junk cluttering up our already-cluttered house, so now I pass the wreath every day and can't wait to hang it up after Labor Day. :)

Fall would be more fun if I weren't stuck at work, frantic, for the whole two months of September and October, but it's still pretty awesome.

Favorite things about fall. Go.

  • I don't know if you ladies have ever hear the phrase "Texas doesn't have seasons", but it's kinda sorta true.

    Particularly fall.  We don't have too much of an autumn here.  At least not in North Texas where I am located. That being said there are a few things...

    switching our Wallflowers to spiced cider (my fave)

    not getting dirty looks when wearing a scarf (yes, I even wear them in the spring and occasionally in the summer)

    my birthday (September 20)

    the smell in the air when it finally does start to cool down

    chili, stew and gumbo!!!!

  • LOL Potato shoes? I have never heard them called that! Haha

     

    I'm looking forward to it not being hot in our bedroom all the time. And lower electric bill due to no AC. We usually don't turn on the heat until November.

     

    More taco soup? It's so much better in the winter. More snuggles with my hubby cuz it isn't too hot!

    so why are they called potato shoes?

    Honestly, I have no idea. Thats just what everyone around here calls them. I guess because they sort of resemble a potato if you use your imagination? lol
