No, it’s not fall yet, but I'm sure ready for its' arrival. What is it that I'm ready for exactly? Where do I event begin...the smell of pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread in the oven and something delicious on the grill at the tailgate, the excitement for the beginning of football season and the sound of thousands and thousands of fans screaming “Hook ‘em Horns” at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, the beauty of some of the leaves changing to orange and falling from the trees, the feel of the brisk breeze that picks up once the sun goes down and the drooling over the cute fall clothing. However, I can’t get too excited for the clothing because I'll still be in maternity clothes for a little while longer. One of those little things you don't learn until you get pregnant...after having your baby, you don't leave the hospital your pre-pregnancy size...boooo! We have a little while to wait for the arrival of fall and cooler weather here in Texas, but I’m more ready for it than ever before.
Maybe it's the beginning of football season that gets me excited....
Maybe it’s the Pottery Barn magazines and emails that get me excited. I mean…look at all of this cute fall décor!
Will I ever be this put together? ha...probably not. A girl can dream, right?
Our baby is due any day now, so maybe it's me "nesting" and trying to get everything decorated before she arrives. I have already told my family that they cannot make fun of me when they come into my house this weekend and my fall wreath is up, pumpkins are on display and fall leaves are hanging from the mantle. I realize I’m jumping the gun, but there is no way I’m going to miss out on fall decorating! I’ll just get to enjoy it for a month longer :).
I fell in love with white pumpkins last year and I look forward to using them again! I will be browsing magazines as I wait for this baby and get some fun, new ideas for fall. I know, I know…I live in Texas, where fall barely exists, but I’m still excited about it! I think I will go out on a limb and say I’m even ready for a flame in the fireplace. Ha…that will be a LONG while!
Anyone else have a craving for fall?
