Dear Summer...Is It Fall Yet?

Seriously, I've been telling my husband for weeks that I am ready for fall. Perhaps it's because we're finally in an area that actually has a fall. I hate being cold, but there are some great things to look forward to!!

The Weather: I'm not a huge fan of cold weather (and I get cold super easily!), but this crazy heat, humidity, etc is not my cup of tea either...what a summer to move from California, right?

The Fashion: I definitely prefer fall clothes over summer clothes... maybe because it tends to be easier to dress modestly in the fall than summer? (Especially in this heat!!) Scarves, sweaters, leggings and legwarmers...I love it all. Here are a few Fall looks I'm loving!

Love, love, LOVE these legwarmers...and the whole leggings and baggy cardigan look too!! (Actually, because my house is super cold right now, it's similar to what I'm wearing right now!! But this version looks 100 times better!!)

The Food: Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pies, pumpkin cookies...pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin...okay, we can't forget the wonderful apple recipes either...but did I mention pumpkin!?

Sorry...am I making you guys hungry yet!?

The Scents: Of course most of you know by now I have an obsession with Scentsy! And I have to tell you, many of my favorites are the fall/winter scents!! Some of them are a little more winter-y (Snowberry!!), but pretty much anything with cinnamon or pumpkin is great for the Fall!! I already can't wait to try some of the new scents!!

The Holidays: And by holidays, I don't mean Christmas (though I do LOVE Christmas!), but Halloween and Thanksgiving!! I'm not sure what our plans are this year, being the first time we live close enough that we could spend Thanksgiving with family...in theory...but I do look forward to it regardless!! I don't go too fancy on the actual Thanksgiving meals...but I love baking pies!! And Halloween is always fun, especially now that Shaun is really starting to get it, more and more every year!!

I know time is going by super quickly and fall will be here before we know it, and until then, I'll just have to face this heat and dream of cooler days (and better clothes!)

(P.S. It's time again to vote for the Circle of Moms Top 25 Military Blogs...if you have a minute, could you click the button (top right) and vote for me!? I would love to remain on the list again this year...you can vote daily!! Thanks in advance!)


  1. Fall is my favorite time of year as well. I love the clothes. I love the apple picking and apple cider. I love all the delicious and filling fall recipes. I love that both of my kiddos have birthdays in the fall. I love it!

  2. I'm right there with you! Growing up, I lived for the summer and all that comes with it. But now, I'm definitely an autumn girl. I can't wait for sweaters and boots!

  3. All those pumpkin desserts made me hungry. Think I'll go get some now
