Happy Fall, Ya'll!

Well, almost. Today at 5:18pm it will officially be fall. Let's just get technical about it, huh?

I've been salivating over Fall. I've been eagerly awaiting it. Finally it is here & to celebrate, how about a little round-up of what I'm excited about.

  • It's time for fall food! Chicken & Dumplings, Roasted Butternut Squash soup with Fontina Grilled Cheese and chili (well, chili cookoffs!).
  • Fall sweaters. Specifically thinking this one from White & Warren - best cashmere ever.
  • Fall leaves - I'll be in Northern New England the next two weeks for work. Can't wait to see the beauty!
  • Cool weather. Let's be honest, I have the face that is cherry red when I'm hot. I sweat. My hair fluffs like crazy & grows 5 inches in height. I deserve a little break, right?
  • Fall boots. Wouldn't these be yummy?
  • Fall desserts. I'm thinking of apple crisps in Maine, homemade pecan pie (best recipe ever!), pumpkin cheese cake...yum!
  • Fall means Thanksgiving (and Thanksgiving dinner) is just around the corner!
Anything that I'm missing out on?

Nature walks in the fall? I love those! Hubs and I go for at least one of them every fall and enjoy the scenery, see deer and try to get really close (we're mature), and take pictures of the leaves changing and camwhore with a pretty background!

I am so totally going to have a chili cook-off this fall, you betcha! Thank you for that idea! :)

Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks! I wish we got cool fall weather down here in Louisiana but it's usually one extreme or the other. At least we have great food, though! :-)
