Friends, I LOVE fall. I'm not even going to lie and pretend like I like summer. Of course, being a teacher, I look forward to the time off, but you can have your frizzy hair, sunburns, and spaghetti straps. After the worst summer on record - both temperature wise and hot/sweaty/fat wise - I was never so glad to see Labor Day come and mark the end of summer.
We celebrated by doing absolutely no labor and, instead, staying in our pajamas literally all day, watching movies, eating "chicken in the crock pot," and organizing my life (more on that later). It was POURING down rain which only made me happier - weird, I know. I am so glad it's cozy season. :)
Here are a few things I'm looking forward to over the next three months (in no particular order):
Sam's new fall outfits I picked up on Sunday at Baby Gap.
The Clemson vs. Virginia Tech Football Game
Our schools only play each other every four years (or something like that), but when they do it is rivalry at its finest at our house. So far the Tiger's track record isn't too great, but I'm not giving up hope. This year we are going to the game with my friend Meg and her husband (I'm stocking up on Clemson fans) and there is a lot at stake... The winner of the game will determine where Sam goes to college. (P.S. Is a 12 week old too young to go to a football game? I'm being serious.)
The Sinkland Farms Pumpkin Festival
Our friend Lisa's family runs this, and it has become a fall tradition for us. The farm is beautiful, and I love a good corn maze. ;)
JCrew - perfect for the aforementioned football game.
Truth be told, I wish I'd gotten married in the fall; it just isn't very practical for a teacher. I love all the colors and cute decorating ideas. This year, we have my cousin Lauren's wedding on October 8th and Jeff's brother's wedding on the 22nd. I can't wait!
Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider
Halloween is a BIG deal in our neighborhood - our street is even closed down and the neighbors give out hotdogs. This year, I'm so excited to have a baby to dress up so we aren't just the weird ones with a dog in a too-small pumpkin costume. (Not that Addy won't still be in costume.)
What are you most looking forward to?
