Ideas: Fall is Officially Here!


As you all have noticed, the air suddenly got a light, crisp chill to it.
The leaves are gracefully falling from the trees and people are starting to reach for boots and jackets.
As much as we all want to fight it, let’s give a big hello to autumn!!
Summer dresses and beach days, I’ll miss you…but I’m totally ready to welcome the fall.
 
Fall is my favorite season for many different reasons.
I’ll be spending the next 2 months with a jam packed schedule trying to get all the fall goodness in!
…and, yes, that includes gaining 10 pounds from eating my favorite fall foods… 

Jax’s Top 10 Favorite Things About Autumn
 
10.  Haunted Houses
I love to spend a few nights of the season going from haunted house to haunted house.
There’s nothing like spending some quality time with friends having ugly things jump out at you!
For those who don’t know me, I’m not as brave as I’m making you think.  I usually close my eyes and run…

9.  Squash
My favorite food season is the fall mainly because of all the yummy squash recipes.
Madre makes a butternut squash soup that I would DIE for, not to mention my spaghetti squash recipe.
Fall foods remain to be unbeaten.  They are even worth a 4 hour drive upstate to buy the best!!
 
8.  Hayrides
There's something so fun about taking a hay ride to a distant pumpkin patch and corn maze.
I love to take GodSon to do this every year.  He really enjoys it!!
 
7.  Classes
Fall means that classes are back in session and that I'm back to the grind.
Some people might hate this, but I love being busy and productive while meeting new people!
Ok, so I'm a nerd.  Let's act like we don't know this already...
 
6.  Scenery
Autumn is famous for the colorful leaves that paint the typical green horizon.
The change in scenery and addition of color is much welcomed after all those months of summer!
My family and I take trips upstate, NY just so we can really take in the beauty of the fall.
 
5.  Hair
Good bye to humidty and frizz!!!  I won't have to see you guys for almost another full year!!
Fall means less time with chemicals on my head and more time enjoying life.
Come on now, I'm a girl!  My hair decides what mood I'll be in despite how I actually am!
 
4.  Wardrobe
I'm excited to pull out the sweaters, boots, and blazers!!
My wardrobe will now consist of fun, earthy colors to keep me in the spirit of the season.
Ok, so I miss my bikini and sundresses just a little bit...but fall clothes hide so much more!!
 
3.  Pumpkin
This is the time of year to chow down on EVERYTHING pumpkin flavored.
I'm in love with pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones, pumpkin spice lattes and everything!!
I have to do a shout out to Dunkin Donut's pumpkin muffin.  The yummiest thing I've ever tasted!
 
2.  Season Premieres
Since the days are shorter and the nights are colder, the couch is looking real good!
That's why I'm so happy that all my favorite shows are back on.
So, who caught Once Upon a Time and Revenge last night??? Soo juicy!!!!!
 
1.  Football
Sneaking out to club in hot red dresses with open shoes are over.
Now it's time to go to the bar in your teams jerseys cheering for your favorite players!!
Not to mention fantasy football makes me happy and Aaron Hernandez makes me swoon...
 
 
What are your favorite things of autumn?
