6 Things I’m Looking Forward to About Fall

I know that I should be soaking up the last of the summer sun, enjoying my flip flops and margaritas on the patio while I still can, but I just can’t help be excited about Fall! It is my favorite season, there’s just so much to love! Here’s a list of some of things I’m looking forward to about Fall-

1) Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Okay, okay, I know it is soooo overdone, but the day Starbucks whips up their first pumpkin spice latte, I’ll be camping out in the damn parking lot, okay, actually, it’ll probably be after school drop off, in the drive thru, with my minivan, but you get the idea. 

I love me my pumpkin spice lattes, but somebody decided to take the pumpkin spice thing too far. You just know a bunch of people were sitting around a board room and someone was all like, “You know, everyone is crazy about these pumpkin spice lattes, we should see if we can make other pumpkin spice crap! People will love it!”

And then we end up with shit like, pumpkin spice ice cream, pumpkin spice gum, pumpkin spice condoms (okay, I made that last one up, but I would not be surprised if it existed.)

Let’s tone down the pumpkin spice stuff, kay marketing people? Don’t fucking touch my lattes though!
Mmmmm... I've missed you, my pumpkin spice latte

 2) Sweaters

How awesome are sweaters!? I mean, they cover your ass, (those lattes pack a lot of calories!) they are super comfy, and cute and go with almost any outfit. When you are wearing yoga pants and a T-shirt but have to go out in public, throw a sweater over that train wreck and you’re good to go!

3) Long, Black Yoga Pants

Hello, yoga pants, oh how I have missed you this summer. It’s been too damn hot for you lately, but soon we will be reunited! You go with anything and everything, I love you long, black yoga pants!

4) Shaving: Optional

Speaking of yoga pants and sweaters, ain’t nobody gonna see your legs or pits under those. Fall means shaving becomes optional, or in my case, not gonna happen til spring.

5) Bye Bye Boob Sweat

Ugh, I am so sick of ringing out my damn bras at the end of the day. Fall means cooler weather and that means no more boob sweat! Unless you go to the gym, which doesn’t apply to me because although I’ve got the hots for my yoga pants, I don’t actually go to yoga.

6) School Starting

Whoop! Whoop! See ya kids! The mornings are going to suck ass, but once we get back into a routine, we will have a routine! Remember a routine kids? No, probably not because you’ve been staying up late, sleeping in, having way too much screen time and eating meals at weird times. I can’t wait to be back on a normal schedule and the fact that my some of my kids will be gone part of the day isn’t too shabby either.

See ya summer, it’s been real, but it’s time for you to move on. It’s not you, it’s me. Well, me being sick of you. So, do me a favor, will you? Go the fuck away so it can be Fall now.

Thank you for sharing!


  1. I'm on the fence. I love fall, but end of summer means we're getting closer to those mean, awful Connecticut winters. Still, you make a good case with the sweaters and pumpkin lattes. Yum.

  2. I think I've finally reached the age where I consider shaving optional at any time of the year. My only question is "do I feel like it?" (It helps to have a boyshort-style swimsuit so your bikini line is never a complicating factor in your decision.)

    1. Ha! Yes, I think, who is really going to be looking that closely at my legs to notice they aren't shaved anyway?

  3. I'm totally late on this one. But, it's December now you see, and I have a routine in place where I get an hour to do what I want. I am so with you on this summer has to go crap.
