{life} crazy for fall

Happy August!

Um. It is now August and I probably still have about two more full months of HEAT.

You know that time during each season when you just wish with all of your might for the next one to come around? I hate wishing my life away, but I am OVER this heat. The norm in Tallahassee lately has been 98-100 degrees, with huge summer storms prettty much every afternoon.

I'm so ready for Fall.

As soon as it is cold I am going to turn around and curse the weather and wish for warm weather. 
Guess I'm hard to please.

But, really. How can you not love Fall when it looks like this?

Oh, FSU football. You make me so happy.

And do I really need to even mention the FOOD of fall?

This is a totally horrible picture (typical Food Network) but a DELICIOUS recipe.
My roommate makes me cook this for her every Fall semester.

Soooo.... now you know two new things about me.

I'm completely and shamelessly head over heels for Autumn and pumpkin (with some butternut squash on the side.) Someone come make me some pumpkin bread.

What is your favorite season??

  1. the weather in here has been great past day, pretty cold and chilly :) i am glad for it, i was already sick of the hot weather

  2. A girl after my own heart! I'm up early for work, drinking my coffee, and BAM! Fall post. I love Fall and desperately await the time of turtlenecks, skinny jeans (though I've worn nothing but leggings since my daughter was born...:/) and boots, hot coffee on a cold morning and extra crunchy leaves!

  3. fall is one of the things that makes me so excited to be living up north now. i will be positively giddy at the first sign of changing leaves & crisp air. i know it'll be my favorite season. i can't wait to follow your blog for some delish autumn recipes too :)
