Most Anticipated Things of Fall – Lori’s Top 5
So Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer, although Summer doesn't end officially until September 22, 10:28 PM, in our heads it ends once school starts and Labor Day has passed. I'm ready for Fall. Fall and Spring are my favorite times of year. So here are my top 5 most anticipated things for Fall.
I'm one of those who love pumpkin. Anything pumpkin (except for those nasty chips). I love the smell of pumpkin, the taste of pumpkin, the look of pumpkin. I especially like Starbucks this year because I can already get my Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I know we don't have the amazing fall foliage in Amarillo that they do in other parts of the country, but it is still pretty. I love driving down streets here in town with big trees and seeing the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.
I love to bake in the Fall. Baking in the Fall is just different from baking in the other seasons. In fact, I got a jumpstart on Fall yesterday when I baked up a loaf of banana bread (my bunch of bananas were passed the point of snacking and I didn't want to be wasteful).
There is nothing like being warm in the Fall and I love wearing my sweaters and hoodies. In the summer I have to break one or the other out in my office, but they are really feasible in 90 degree heat. So being able to wear one everyday is wonderful.
There is something about a big bowl of warmth for lunch or dinner on a cold Fall day. Plus, most of these are easily made in a crockpot.
Now I'm sure some of your favorite things about Fall didn't make the list like football. However, I would love for you to share your favorite things about Fall with me.
