Happy No Whining Wednesday and Happy First Full Day of Fall! (I love alliteration so much because I am a doofy dorkface!)
You guys, I love fall so much. SOOOOO much! The trees are just now starting to change and having grown up in San Diego with palm trees & perpetually green leaves, it's still breathtaking to me every year when the trees here change color. I drive over a bridge (well, two bridges actually, but I'm usually SPEEDING over one of them and I can't look around at the scenery...sorry, tangent...) on my way to work and watching the valley change colors during the next month will make me happy every single morning, if only for an instant; I look forward to it every year.
I start cooking in fall. Crock Pot meals that cook all day and smell amazing when I walk in the door after work. Giant pots of chili simmering. I might buy a bread machine and see if that's something I like. I see the pictures Figgy posts (oooh, happy birthday, figster!!!) of the gorgeous loaves of bread and I can only imagine how fantastic fresh baking bread would smell....mmmmm.....yeah, I'm gonna' buy a bread machine!
I love wearing my fuzzy socks and my flannel jammie pants. I can't wait to wrap myself in my pretty fleece blanket (Sarina's making me a blanket. Why? Because she is AWESOME and because she loves me even though I yell at her and shun her.) and curl up with a book. I love rolling down the windows in my car and turning on my heated seats. I love wearing darker colors because I look really good in dark purples and dark greens and because I often spill shit down the front of my boobs and I feel darker colors hide it better. There are just so many things to love about fall! Even the name, "autumn" sounds beautiful, doesn't it?
Ok my little sweet potatoes, what's your favorite thing about fall? (And don't say summer's your favorite season - I don't give a shit. We're talking about fall.) What do you look forward to each autumn?
