That Cheating Heart

Here we are in the 3rd weekend of August. I know we've all been asking this question but I seriously want to know what happened to July. It was the 4th of July, I had some beers and then it was August 1st. This year is going by faster than TSwizzle's boyfriends.

We're halfway through the month but my love affair is in full swing. I love summer. The heat and humidity don't bother me in the slightest. The thing is, I really, really like the fall. You know what they say, once a cheater, always a cheater. I can't help it. To celebrate my cheating heart I give you:

I hate this word with a passion but I'm going to use it - foliage. The changing of the guards leaves is so pretty. I can't even tell you how giddy I get when I drive back to my parents' during these next few months and see the mountain sides ablaze in leafy color. It makes my heart smile.

I can't wait for this.
Pumpkin everything! I don't care what people say, I'm a sucker for pumpkin. Carving them, eating the seeds, pumpkin pie, cakes, muffins, ice cream, coffee, beer... I love it all. I have yet to try pumpkin soup though. Maybe this year.

In pumpkin's defense that Edy's ice cream is sinful. And those Pumpkin Delights? My mom buys and sends me 3 boxes every year because I obsess over stalk love them so much. If there was a stronger word than love I'd use it.

If there's one thing I love about fall it's the fashion. Layer me up baby! Sweaters and scarves and boots, oh my! The clothing possibilities are endless. Take this for example. The fall uniform:

Fall Into Fall
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?! Seriously. That phrase alone makes my little engine rev. Speaking of football... the draft for Victorious Secret is happening this Sunday at 5pm EST. If you're signed up for my league, bring your A-game because we're about to get it on!

Holy yellow teeth, Batman. wtf...

This is when my FAH (fatty at heart) characteristics round out. The food. When there's a spicy scented chill in the air I want, no I need, all the food. You can finally turn the oven back on to bake without feeling like you've teleported to Death Valley, and there's all the cheesy, hearty, rib-sticking goodness you can eat.

What are your favorite things about the fall season? 


  1. Couldn't have said it bettah myself. I'm looking forward to all of those things plus candy corn and all of my tacky Halloween decorations.

  2. def the pumpkin everything (esp the fall season teas at my local tea shop), thanksgiving (pumpkin pie? yes please!) and the boots...i LOVE fall boots :)

  6. Those are the exact five things I would have said but in a different order.

  9. I love summer and fall! But right now I'm really looking forward to the fall :) I love being in the nature during fall, like hiking or mushroom hunting! And I love the scented candles they come out with during fall :)

  10. I just wish it could be fall all the time. It's THE best season out of all of them.
