Yes we are coming upon that certain time of year again. My favorite time to be exact. I love fall!
It's almost an obsession. I dream about it all year long, and revel in it's arrival. I make pumpkin and nutmeg everything
, and decorate the front of my house with autumn delight. Outside for walks, sweaters coming in from storage, and getting out my giant soup mugs. I LOVE IT!!! Also it is time to bust out Hocus Pocus, among other autumn favorites, and watch them on repeat everyday.
Since I just adopted a dog a few days ago I take her for walks in the crisp evening air, and sit outside with my crochet while she runs through the yard. This time of year is simply splendid. Not to mention Halloween!!!
I love it...
Well... there are 2 specific things I'm not crazy about.
1. Homecoming is here again (tomorrow night to be exact). This means the people from my high school cheer squad beckon me back into their midst and try to squish me into my old uniform...
It's been almost 5 years... I think this needs to stop. I shall be trying it on when I get home this afternoon. I'll let you know how that goes.
2. The costumes at the store are made for people with narrower a$$es than my own, and my friends constantly berate me to join them for the yearly jaunt to the costume store to squeeze my hiny into their undersized latex laden garments. I'm not looking forward to that at all which I believe will be happening in a week or so.
Although since last time I went I have lost some inches.... I still dread the idea... kind of like the dread before you try on your skinny jeans when you aren't sure if they'll fit or not...
