Writer's Workshop


5.) Fall is here! List your top 10 favorite things about this Fall season.

I agree that the hardest thing about writing a blog post is coming up with a catchy first sentence. Which is why I LOVE the Writer's Workshop linkup...I get to cheat and use hers. (Thanks Mama K) 

Now on to me...and my absolute, without a doubt, brings more joy to my heart than eating raw chocolate chip cookie dough, favorite time of the year.

Que the music....

Top Ten Favorite Things About Fall This Season (or any season)

 NUMBER 10) CHANGE IN SCENERY
 Most of the summer season it was so hot so my front yard looked like this


One day I noticed that I didn't have pit stains the size of Texas  feel quite so hot while driving in my car. I looked around and started to see this...


What a difference a little fall color makes in the drive to work (and well, anywhere seeing as I live in the sticks)

NUMBER 9) NEW FALL YANKEE SCENTS

Now don't get me wrong I love a good scentsy bar, but my first smelly true love will always be Yankee Candles. My nostrils always thank me (and considering the damage I have done to my liver and kidneys I feel it only right that I treat at least one of my body parts kindly) 



NUMBER 8) SWEATERS
NUMBER 7) SCARVES

I am that dork that would wear my next two loves all year round if I didn't sweat in such an unflattering way. So as soon as the slightest hint of a cooling off in the weather I break these next two obsessions out..



NUMBER 6) WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA FROM STARBUCKS

I always feel closer to my cousin Lisa in Boston when I sip on one of these. I havent been able to fly to Boston yet this year (maybe because I went three times back to back last year and I am still paying for it) so this little slice of heaven sliding down my throat will have to warm my heart as well...for now anyway...


NUMBER 5) FALL TV SHOWS

I am not a big Television show watcher for the most part. I love movies, and we watch a lot of those in our house but I don't DVR and obsessively keep up with a bunch of shows (I've never even seen Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, any of the Bachelor shows and the list goes on) I admit I am a Reality TV slut...or if the series is going to make you feel like your life is a walk in the park I'm a fan. There might be some deep down underlying issue why I like dramatic shows and my favorite character is always the drama queen but that's another post altogether....don't judge me! 




NUMBER 4) SNUGGLING UNDER THE BLANKET WITH TONY

The BF likes it cold so this could really be something that would be on any favorite list of mine but with the colder weather I get to add blankets (cause with a ceiling fan, the oscillating fan blowing directly in his face, and the thermostat on 66 one blanket ain't gonna cut it anymore).


that is NOT me for the record. I don't smile like that in the morning, my eyes are not that wide and bright..The blanket is similar minus a wine stain and some green marker from little mans art work

NUMBER 3) PUMPKINS
NUMBER 2) FALL DECORATIONS

This time of year I love to see all the different ways to use leaves, gourds, pumpkins, mums you name it. I am an Army girlfriend and don't get me wrong I love the American flag but it's nice to have an excuse to put out some new colors...and fall colors are my favorite. oranges, yellows, reds...all those colors I can't pull off wearing because I will look like a  cheap hooker working girl 




NUMBER ONE REASON I LOVE FALL THIS SEASON

MY UGGS. I AM GONNA BE HONEST AND TO PROVE HOW SERIOUS I AM ABOUT THIS I AM USING ALL CAPS AND BOLD LETTERS..I LOVE MY UGGS. I KNOW THEY ARE UGLY AND I KNOW I GET MADE FUN OF BUT I DON'T CARE. IT'S THE ONE INDULGENCE OF MINE (AND NOONE CAN SWAY ME) THEY ARE JUST THAT WARM AND COZY....


Ok, so I do wear them other times than fall. In fact I wear them all year round but this is my safe place right? Your not judging me are you? 

and to prove my point here are some oldies and but goodies of last fall...(and yes I own more than one shirt, apparently I should have added camo to this list as well)

All wonderful parts of this time of the year. I admit to getting hooked on The Voice this time. I love pumpkins and I wear my boots (cowboys) all the time.

I love scarves, too, and sweaters would be a killer during the summer. Love fall decorations and need to get some for my house. It was the same here for me, one day realizing it was chilly and the colors were changing!
