As I mentioned yesterday, with the start of school comes the start of fall, so I have fall on the brain. For me, fall is not just a season it is an OBSESSION! I’m probably the opposite of most people because I get so excited as summer draws to a close. There are just so many awesome things about the fall!
Since Texas is kind of lacking in the “fall” season, this post will at least let me reminisce about the things that I loved about fall when I lived in a state that actually had seasons. If you’re in one of those areas of the world just know that I’m extremely jealous! Send me some pics of changing trees or something to tide me over.
Fall means the start of college football. Especially Buckeye football!
No need to really elaborate here other than to say that the start of college football season has always been one of my favorite things. What’s better than college football, tailgating, grilling out with friends for away games, cheering on your favorite team, and heading to the Shoe on a Saturday for a Buckeye’s game? Answer: nothing! I love football Saturdays and when I worked at Ohio State it was such a thrill to hear the band’s fight song echoing through campus on game-days. Please no mean comments about the current situation involving Ohio State and the football team. I’m pretending that nothing has happened!
Fall means changing leaves.
I just love the way nature looks during the fall. The clear skies and changing trees are just beautiful! As the weather turns cooler, I love to bundle up on crisp fall nights and enjoy the outdoors. I’d much rather be outside in the fall when it’s cooler than during the summer when it’s so hot.
Fall means the Pumpking Spice Latte at Starbucks is back on the menu!
Oh man, do I ever love the day when the pumpkin spice latte is finally back at Starbucks. In fact, I love anything and everything pumpkin spice. Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin pie…you name it, I love it!
Apparently Starbucks is having a competition this year to bring the PSL to your town one week earlier than the normal release date. Come on FW, we’ve gotta get on this!!
Fall means Halloween
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the candy (duh…candy corn is amazing), I love the movies (more on that in a sec), and I love to dress up and go to Halloween parties. Halloween was big at my college, so the love of it has kind of stuck with me.
Fall means horror movie marathons on TV!
I love me some old-school horror movies and October brings with it horror movie marathons for Halloween. I like all the cheesy classics like Halloween, Poltergeist, Friday the 13th, etc. My DVR always works overtime in the month of October.
Fall means sweaters, sweatshirts, and other fall clothing
I’m a sweater-a-holic. I love a good, comfy sweater or sweatshirt. I also have a thing for coats and scarves, so I don’t mind when the temps drop even further so I can further accessorize for the crisp weather.
Fall means pumpkins!
I love pumpkins and so does Perry…
Is anyone else as excited for the fall or am I the only werido out there that is happy summer is coming to an end?!
