Hi everyone! I congratulate for continuing to read because now we are one week 3! This week we’re going to talk about the best season of the year: FALL! 🍂☕🎃 One of the main reasons I love fall is the drastic weather changes. Sweltering hot summer days and nights turn into chilly, breezy fall days with crisp, colorful leaves falling to the ground from the trees. (yikes, that was super poetic…)
I also am in love with all of the clothes that I can wear in the fall, as opposed to in the summer; Sweaters, jeans, boots, scarves, and beanies are just a few of my favorite things… Maroon and Army Green also happen to be two of my favorite colors, and now we are finally in the season that it’s acceptable to wear them again!! I love all of the layers that come with fall (despite it being 100 degrees on the first day of fall as I write this). Fashion is definitely one of the better things about fall!
There’s also Halloween we get to look forward to throughout the entire month of October and then Thanksgiving throughout November (personally two of my absolute favorite holidays to celebrate). Anyways, hopefully these cool temperatures make way to us soon, and I hope fall treats all of you as well as I expect it to treat me!
(btw I hope you all caught the reference to Grease in my title 😉)
see you later!
So I’m not going to lie…
…I love pumpkin spice as much as the Cheshire Inn Starbucks apparently does, via this sign.
I’m definitely one of those people that gets very excited when she sees the first Pumpkin Spice item of the season on the shelf at the grocery store. I can personally attest that Starbucks’ PSLs are just as tasty as always. However, in recent years, the trend has gone a tad too far – I mean, pumpkin spice GUM?! (Yes, I actually witnessed this in line to checkout at Schnuck’s yesterday) Maybe we should scale it back a little…
Pumpkin obsession aside, fall is my absolute favorite season – and not just because my birthday is in October 😉 I love the classic fall trends – pumpkin patches, scary movies on TV (Hocus Pocus always), flannels and beanies and skinny jeans tucked into boots. I love haunted houses and corn mazes and apple cider, and the scenery during these months is absolutely breathtaking. Driving through the mountains back home in Tennessee at this time of year used to render me speechless – the radiance of red and yellow and orange scattered throughout the trees is comparable to nothing.
I’m very excited to see what St. Louis has to offer up during the season of Halloween. I’ve heard the Lemp Mansion (http://www.lempmansion.com/hauntedhistory.htm) is a site worth checking out – I’m always on the lookout for spooky adventures. I’ll keep you guys posted (and feel free to comment if you have any suggestions).
Keep moving forward.
I know that fall is just in a few days, but I am still not ready for it yet. I am really holding on to summer and enjoying the nice weather. I have done some shopping for when it finally does come. I got marshmallow pumpkin latte lotion and a Halloween pumpkin hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works. I don’t drink coffee so I will not be getting the pumpkin latte at Starbucks but I will get the pumpkin frappacino. Sometime this week I will plan all of the Halloween baking that I will do next month. I also hope to go to creepy world with a friend next month. I might be interested in joining Fontbonne for Eckerts on October 7. I love hayrides and fall festivities. Today, my favorite show, Scream Queens, starts. American Horror Story started last week and it’s amazing! I also look forward to the costume party that Fontbonne is having as well as going to a haunted house!
I’m really excited for Halloween. So far I have made witch’s broomstick cookies, monster brownies, and sugar cookies. I’m in the process of making cupcakes! I have also visited some haunted houses. On the way home I have been listening to Halloween music and watching movies at home. I also decorated my porch and carved pumpkins. I will also carve another pumpkin and I look forward to going to Ghouling pianos this Friday!
