Today I decided...

that I am ready for fall to be here. I love looking forward to summer, but I frequently decide when summer actually arrives that it's a tad overrated and most of all HOT. It's pointless to even try and look decent if you're going to be outside. 102 degrees just isn't fun.

So in an attempt to keep my mind off the inferno that is Texas in July, I thought I'd think happy fall thoughts and everything I love about it. Such as...
  1. hot chocolate, hot cider, and various other warm treats from starbucks... there's nothing better than warming up via empty albeit delicious calories.
  2. Halloween. I loooove Halloween! How many people do you think are going to dress as Michael Jackson this year? I'm putting my bets in early that this will be "the" costume of 2009 a la Sarah Palin of 2008.
  3. Being able to wear scarves. I have a theory that it makes anything you are wearing look instantly more put together- lazy girl's secret weapon in the fall.
  4. I love me some red wine all year round, but it really does just taste better with a chill in the air...
  5. Being able to go for a run outside without worrying about death via heat stroke.
  6. Fall food: vegetable soup, chili, grilled cheeses and tomato soup, pumpkin pie.... mmm.....
  7. Being able to enjoy the fabulous Dallas patios again for a few months before the cold weather sets in.
  8. Last but definitely not least... COLLEGE FOOTBALL! Fine, I will freely admit that it's notsomuch the football, football as it is the tailgating, the game watching parties, the ice picks at hurricane, the annual Tech vs. A&M family rivalry, the coming up with cute red/black outfit combinations, and the obligatory annual trip to Lubbock, Texas. But there is something electric about the beginning of college football season. Love it.
So think cool thoughts! Fall will be here before you know it!

I NEED it to be fall soon! Thank you for the brief escape from staggering heat, even if it was only imagined.
