Fall is hands down my favorite season. Who doesn’t love pumpkin pie, apple crisp, Halloween candy, and, um scarecrows, I guess, so that all the things I just listed don’t involve eating. I used to love fall for the cooler weather and the cute clothes that accompany, but in Houston, “fall weather” doesn’t really strike until December.
This year, I’m looking forward to fall for 5 reasons in particular.
The Return of Primetime Television: As much as I love Bachelor Pad and Teen Mom, nothing fills the void of Parenthood, which will return for its 3rd season this September. You now know where to find me on Tuesday evenings. With a bowl of popcorn and m&ms on my lap and a box of Kleenex in hand.
Football Season: Tailgating, College Game Day, and a trip up to Dallas to watch the Cowboys and G-Men this October? Sold.
Weddings: This fall we’ll be heading to Illinois and Connecticut for the weddings of some of our favorite people. Travel+Good Friends+Family+
Bad Dance Moves=Love.
Holidays: Labor Day-Hey 3 Day Weekend. Halloween-“ In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Right on, LiLo. And Thanksgiving-Trip to NY for QT with the Kole fam and an opportunity to overload on all things tasty.
All Things Flavored Pumpkin: Bread, lattes, soup, pie, ice cream.
So…Is it fall yet?
