Wake Me Up When September Ends...

Flashback Friday: remember that Green Day song?  

Yeah, throughout high school and college, that was the song of the fall for me.  I was always did well school and enjoyed it once I got there, but I hated the end of summer, actually having to do school work, and cold weather.  

Yes, I know, I must be the worst blogger in the world to hate September and fall.  I don't drink hot beverages, I don't like anything "pumpkin spice," I'm allergic to pecan pie, putting on a jacket to be outside is the worst, I hate when the sun sets early, and mostly I just hate the thought of winter coming soon. 

Well, this time around, it's going to be different.  [Well, starting today... a few nights ago I put on Uggs and a hoodie for a walk around the block with Mike when it was 60 degrees and complained the whole time...]  I'm not going to let this month slip away anymore.  Yes, the weather isn't my favorite, but here are a few reasons why I'm going to make September and fall rock from now on: 

- MY WEDDING: we set a date! September 20, 2014!  From now on, at least I will be able to enjoy our anniversary in September!

- My birthday: October 3rd is my day and I looooove my birthday!

- Uggs... yes, all you fashionistas, I still wear my Uggs on a daily basis... and with leggings. I choose comfort over style on a regular basis.  

- Halloween Oreos and Reeses: heck yeah! and the double-stuffed goodness is even better deep fried!

- Television: some of my favorites are fall shows - HIMYM,  Revenge, SVU, and The League are or will be back this month! 

- Halloween costumes: I've always loved shopping for them and now Mike and I are all about the couple costumes.  Last year we were Waldos!  Any suggestions for this year?
Oh yeah, had to throw in a couple Flashback Friday photos too!

- I don't have to go back to school anymore!!!

- UConn football

- The World Series 
My parents brought me to game 1 of the WS in 2009

- Sleeping with the windows open

- The leaf blower: it is my favorite power tool, after all.

- Flannels: and having an awesome job when I can wear them everyday!

- Cider mills with apple fritters and petting zoos

- Hard Ciders: you already know my love for these!

(Very excited!!!) and omg... did we ever discuss this!? Nick and I were Waldos the year before last!!!! Last year we were Patty Mayonnaise and Quail Man lol, but seriously.. had no clue y'all did waldo. I love Fall, I just wish it got a little chillier here in the South :( I'm still waiting for my sign of fall to be here!

Mmm...Halloween Reese's pumpkins...the trees that come out for Christmas time are good, too.

I do get a little tired of the pumpkin spice craze, too. I order one or two of the frappuccinos from Starbucks and that's it. If anything, I like to do the baristas a favor by not asking them to make yet another one of those!

Screw fashion bought the boots, you wear them whenever you want!

Congrats on setting a date! Woohoo! The thought of winter being around the corner, for me, is the only bad thing about fall. Love the reeses pumpkins. I've never tried apple fritters, but I looove corn fritters. :)
