Friends, August is almost over.
I'm just letting you know because it definitely snuck up on me. The Mister and I were chatting the other night about plans for Labor Day weekend, and when I mentioned how far away it was... He just looked at me like I was oblivious (bc I was) and politely informed that it was next week. NEXT WEEK PEOPLE. And I fell out of my chair from the shock of it all... Where does time go? Seriously. I'm pretty sure August just started... how can it be ending so soon???
All that to say...
September is coming... THE FALL IS COMING!!!!!
Fall means a lot of different things to different people. But one of the things I LOVE about fall is the food (duh). None of you are surprised by that, I know. So last week when it dipped below 70 those few days, I may or may not have pre-gamed a bit and made the first batch of chili this year. A little premature... I know. But I just got SO excited about the cool weather! I was tempted to break out my fall decor to celebrate, but we're currently staging our house and prepping for putting it on the market so since less is best, I only put out a few things.
Yup, my two FAVORITE fall candles from Bath & Body Works (Leaves and Autumn) and my football decal for the Happy Everything Plate. Seriously, these items just make my heart flutter. Speaking of football... We are 1 week away from NC STATE's first home football game. To say our family is excited is probably a gross understatement. We may or may not have the girls' outfits already picked out. And we're starting to recruit babysitters for late evening games. Seriously... I told you we're excited.
All this to say... FALL IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. And this mama's heart is excited by thoughts of crisp evenings, the beautiful Raleigh tree line, cobblers, babies in hoodies, soups, exploring a pumpkin patch, and the potential to break out my boots. Oh and being able to run without feeling like you're being suffocated by the humidity will also be nice! ;)
And right after FALL is the HOLIDAY season... Heaven help the Mister... this is my FAVORITE time of year. People, we're on the brink of my giddy season, so yall be warned and watch out. The blog could potentially have an obnoxious amount of spice and glitter. I'll try to keep it to a minimum... but I'm not making any promises.
Enjoy these last few days of August!
