What I Love Wednesday- Oct 17

My absolute favorite season of the year is Fall.

There's just something about crisp air at night, Bulldogs football, the smell of bonfires, freshly fallen leaves, Halloween, and hoodies. Yes, hoodies. I cannot wear them in the summer and they're not enough during the winter. But Fall? Oh yeah.

I have never been much of a 'shorts person'. I really don't like my legs much and prefer to have them covered with jeans. Or yoga pants.
And I love chunky sweaters.
Oooh, and my boots.

I love, love, love these boots.
Yeah, they are a little pricey and I can guarantee that they are the most expensive boots I own. But I allowed myself to buy them once I lost 20 pounds a couple of years ago (2011). It was a great incentive and I freaking love them.

Each year, I look forward to the colors on the trees that shine in the Fall.
On my list of 'places to visit' is Vermont. The pictures that I have seen of the foliage are usually breathtaking and I'd love to see it on person.

I like that it gets cool enough to sit outside with my coffee and not get attacked by mosquitoes.

I like driving around and seeing the Halloween decorations that people put in their yards. Also, more and more people seem to be decorating for Halloween these days which I love.
And I love picking out the perfect costumes for my kids each year. (One day, they'll take that away from me but for now, I get to have the final say.)

When the weather gets cooler in MN, it's usually a little earlier in the year than down in TN and GA. So early October reminds me of November in Georgia, my favorite time of year to go to Georgia football games.
Back before I moved to MN, I went to every home game in Athens two years running. And the latter part of the season was ideal as far as weather.

My favorite games were night games because we hung out with friends in the parking areas all day before heading down to the stadium.
In the mornings when you first park, it's a little chilly and you need a hoodie or windbreaker (UGA colors and graphics, of course). As the day moves on it warms up a little, but it isn't hot and humid like it is in early September.
By the time you head back to your car, you need to hoodie or windbreaker again.
And that beats the hell out of sweating like you're stuck in a giant sauna.

Fall is also when all of my shows come back on, which I wrote about here.
Not long after writing that post, I found out that A&E canceled The Glades. I hate them and I hope all of their Halloween candy is rotten.
Also, how in the world did I forget about Elementary?!? Love that show.

And Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. I cannot stress enough how much I love Thanksgiving meals in our house. Turkey, cornbread dressing, homemade mashed potatoes (no box stuff in this house), homemade mac and cheese, and deviled eggs. I'll need to amp up my cardio during those few days.

What about you? What do you love about fall?


  1. Fall is my favorite - it leads to snowboarding. I love the colors and the idea of what's to come in the winter - the lights decorating houses outside....

    I love the smell of the leaves when hiking and I also love NOT sweating!!!!

    Love this post - makes me 'see' what you're talking about....

    1. Thanks Joy!

      Decorating the house... you just brought up the main thing I love about winter.
      The only time I'm okay with the snow is on a night when it's deserted outside and the snow has been falling for a while and the lights are glowing on top of the snow. It's so pretty. It looks magical, almost.
