10 reasons why fall is welcomed with open (soon-to-be sweater adorned) arms

1. Crock Pot Sundays: The Boy's ritual which will benefit me in every way (except of course my weight loss goals).

2. Ginormous scarves & pashminas worn with even larger sweaters.
Outfit is perfection. VIA.
3. I always hit a good workout stride in the Fall, I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it but I will TAKE IT.

4. The return of the weekend: This summer has been a blast but having my entire summer weekends mapped out by May? Hated it - too many events during the hot months. Looking forward getting off work on Friday and having 2 days of spontaneity ahead of me!

5. Halloween. A delightful day in my humble opinion. However, I have no clue what I want to be this year! A large part of me has always wanted to just dress up like a Cow like Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn do in "The Break Up". I mean, if it works for Jennifer Aniston... it would obviously work for me... (nudge nudge).
Anything you can do, I can do worse. VIA.

6. Going out and not having my entire face melt down my body. I love the summer heat- except when I'm trying to be pretty in it!

7. Soup, soup and more soup! You have no idea how much I love a good bowl of soup.
I hate to see you go but I love to taste you leave. VIA.
8. Football Season of course. Do you think I wouldn't love an event that allows for good beer, sitting around and hanging with friends? On the college scale, I root for the Oregon Ducks. On the NFL scale it's 'Go Broncos' all the way (with love also sent to The Eagles, Bears & Vikings). Congruently to that, I wish terrible curses on the Raiders and hope they lose every game to an embarrassing degree. Sorry if that offends you, I have been indoctrinated since birth.
It never rains at Autzen.
9. Warm covers. Window open. Cold Air. The recipe for an amazing night's sleep. In the summer- such as right now as I type this- this doesn't work so well. I like my Sleeping Air like I like my Men: Cool. (That prior sentence didn't really work and was also the dumbest one I've ever written).

10. Shows! My favorite Latina is preggers! Can't wait for their return. Besides, it gives me something to talk about in the elevator with coworkers that doesn't involve the go-to 'weather' conversation which I've been known to initiate on more than one occasion...

What's your favorite part about Fall?

Kate Sparkles said...

Ah there is nothin worse than the make up meltdown of a hot summers day! But being on the opposite end of the seasons, I'm a bit over being cold and summer can't happen soon enough!

You're one of those weather talking people? geez haha Yeah Fall is better for many a things, I like it because I can sleep better.

I agree. I am so ready for Fall!!

Jax said...

Omg, I agree with all of these!!!!! As much as I am going to miss the fun of the summer, some fall weather is certainly welcome. :) NFL and good TV shows are surely missed. Also, my hair likes the crisp air of the fall much better than it does the humid air of the summer. :) :)

You made my heart flutter with a list. You know how I love those... lol!!

Unknown said...

It's nice you're so positive about Fall. I am not so much. I like Halloween and my birthday but then I just want it to be summer again hahahah BC Winters last too long =(

I really, really need your help - I entered a competition and I need to gather some "Likes" on an outfit I compiled - If you visit my blog there are more instructions there! I would SO appreciate your help!

I'm not quite ready to let go of Summer yet. But TV shows returning, loads and loads of soup, scarves, boots, hoodies, nights around the fire pit, and most importantly any and all things pumpkin related ALMOST make me wish Fall would just hurry up. ALMOST! ;)

Bonnie said...

FOOTBALL SEASON. That is my number one reason for loving Fall. I'm a huge Bears fan, so I am glad that you gave my boys a shout-out.
