Ten on Tuesday :: Fall

My weather app tells me it's 61 outside. THAT, my friends, is a sign of fall.
I'm a summer girl and I would have no problem with it being summer yearround, however I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see some sub-80 temps.
In a few short days it will be officially FALL and I can already smell a Leaves candle burning in the living room...

 Candles. LEAVES in particular, from Bath & Body Works. You really cannot go wrong burning a Leaves candle.
Thick socks. I love wearing socks, 24/7. (Yes, I'm a sleep in socks person.) Especially when they have a fun print!

Going to Sinkland Farms. Our pumpkin patch is a very short drive from my house & they have festivals every weekend starting the 28th of September. You can bet I'll be making more than one trip out there for some pumpkins & kettle corn!

Not being hot & not being cold.  This may be one of my most favorite things about fall. You don't break a sweat just by walking to the car like you do all summer, but you also aren't risking frostbite by sitting on the porch.  I love it.

Fall decor. I love the warm tones of fall and decorating the house makes it feel so much cozier.  Plus, you start getting into real decorating holidays -- so much fun!
Pie. Pumpkin, apple, pecan. You name it. Enough said.
Family time. There are lots of fun birthdays (Both of my brothers, my Mom, myself and Steven) in these fall/early winter months and also lots of holidays - and even a wedding this year. This means lots of family time! Which means lots of happy time.  I'm okay with that.
Football is officially in full swing! Which means lazy days on the couch (when I'm not slaving away on homework) are a legit excuse for how to spend the weekend. Now, if I could finally get the channels that the Hokie games are on we'd be all good!

Marathon season! At least for me. This fall will be extra special as I take on 2 half marathons and 1 full marathon.  Definitely going to hibernate all winter when it's over and done with.

Breaking out the bean boots.  I've missed those babies since last season.  It will be a happy day when they make their fall 2013 debut!

  1. Sinkland Farms + Football = Blacksburg in the fall in a nutshell. I'm glad you had a great time at the Hokie Half this weekend, I wish that I could have run it!

  2. I couldn't sleep in socks! It would drive me insane!!


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
