APPLE AND PUMPKIN PICKING — Ok so I’d be lying if I said I have actually ever done such an activity, however, I will comment from an outsiders perspective that it is damn cool. I think if at some point I were to find a normal boyfriend I would take him apple or pumpkin picking. I think it would be more amusing if we went pumpkin picking solely because 90% of the pumpkins would be larger than myself.
AMAZING HALLOWEEN RECIPES (courtesy of Baked Bree – family friend and amazing/unreal food blogger, http://www.bakedbree.com) — I have to admit, no other holiday gets me more inspired to try and bake and entertain at my apartment. I will say “inspire” because every year I see SUCH adorable Halloween inspired cocktails and desserts and automatically go into “party planning mode” …. then the fire burns out, quick. Oh well. I can still salivate over food bloggers who aren’t as lazy as myself.
STARBUCKS SHIFT TO FALL INSPIRED DRINKS, DUH — This one is a no brainer — not only Starbucks, but mostly every chain begins to showcase orange, brown, yellow and black themed delicacies. I think the Pumpkin related drinks, quick breads and cupcakes are a personal favorite.
THE SCENERY– I love all aspects of Fall changes in weather. The weather cools down immensely which is much-needed come October. The leaves also begin to change and fall — the vivid yellows, oranges and greens are breath-taking at times. I also have a freakish obsession with the smell of firewood? Which always is in HEAVY rotation in the fall season.
HALLOWEEN — SCARY MOVIES — BEING SCARED (HAVE YOU MET ME?) — Hands down THE BEST HOLIDAY EVVVERRR. Ok, I’ll stop being uber dramatic and just say that I love it for all reasons EXCEPT that all college and embarrasingly older women find the need to dress like skanks. I don’t get it — why do you take a fun child oriented candy filled holiday and turn it into a massive lingerie show? I don’t comprehend. Anyway! I still love Halloween for the sheer fact that it’s dark, wood smelling outside, light outside with pumpkins and candles, and kids in imaginative outfits. Count me in.
