7 Things About Fall

I was going to wait to post this until October but I can't. October gets its own post about how fabulous it is. As we all know fall is my jam. I love it. Give me fall for life if you can. It's a damn shame that we can't. I know everybody is looking forward to fall in blogland. I've read like 5416151 posts about it. Of course I have to take suit and do the same thing. So, here we go.

1. The weather is better.
I hate to be hot. I absolutely positively hate it. I don't like to be cold either so there's that. Fall is perfect. You can layer and layer and then strip down when and if it starts to get to warm. Plus, the sun isn't up as long and I just like darkness better. Give me some crisp air on a cloudy day and we are set.

2. Pumpkin ________ (insert whatever here)
Except for lattes. I don't drink coffee so that's a no-go here. Whether it's candles or food or just pumpkins, I love it.

3. Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks
I love this drink. And while I'm sure I could get it when it's hot outside, it just wouldn't be the same. When fall starts, my mouth starts to water knowing that this drink could be mine anyday. This year I might add some pumpkin spice to it and see how it tastes! I plan on making a version of my own this year just for grown ups =).

4. The clothes
I love to layer. I want to wear leggings and sweaters and scarves and boots all year round please. But I probably wouldn't enjoy them as much if I could. I can't wait until it gets cold enough for some of my new sweaters. Pinterest had inspired me!

5. I can use my crockpot again.
I know that they can be used all year long but they just seem like a cooler weather type of ordeal for me. I know that I don't want to eat something heavy in the warmer months and that's normally what I make in mine. I'm ready to find some new recipes and get started!

6. Good tv is back.
Umm yeah. Sons starts in 5 days. Just 5! I can't wait. The Walking Dead, New Girl, Grey's Anatomy, all of it. I love tv and fall starts good tv again.

7. Cuddling Weather
Seriously perfect cuddling weather. Even just cuddling with a blanket. It's wonderful. Not too hot and not too cold. I prefer to cuddle during this time of year. Especially with the best dog in town.

What about you; What do you love about fall?

Yay fall! I'm excited for boots and scarves! I've never tried a PSL but I plan on popping that cherry this season when it cools down a little. It's still very summery down in TX!

Yes! Caramel apple spice is my favorite, I have to stop and get it before I do something fall related - apple picking, pumpkin picking, haunted houses - I must get my caramel apple spice first. It's tradition.
