My first list from the 30 Days of Lists started yesterday (read about the journaling challenge on this post here). Bestie gave me a set of pretty journals for my birthday. I’ll date each page so I will remember when I wrote my entry.
The first question is super easy and fun…September is for:
Football games to start — I don’t like to watch football unless it’s my favorite college team TCU, but I just love how a football game brings everyone together for tailgate parties.
The end of summer — Summer is not my favorite season, especially since I live in Texas where it is hot from May to October. I like Memorial Day weekend, but it’s down hill from there. By August, Summer and I have broken up and we’re ready to move on.
The beginning of fall — who doesn’t love pumpkins, bails of hay, gourds!?
Labor Day Weekend — usually my birthday is celebrated during this quintessential end of summer holiday. It’s synonymous with the end of my month-long birthday “MissyFest” tribute and I get a day off from work!
Decorating my porch for football – I love knowing it’s time to change out the decor on my porch with TCU purple and white pom poms, pennants and Riff Ram chalkboard lettering.
Cooler mornings — maybe I can start the day with a cardigan, even though by the afternoon I will be sweating.
Fall clothes — to me, nothing says fall like wearing my boots. My favorite outfit to wear is a lightweight sweater, a jean jacket, skinny jeans and boots.
Pumpkin Spice Everything — My friend Cindy gave me a Starbucks gift card for my birthday and I will be the first in line when they launch pumpkin spice lattes. Trader Joe’s annual pumpkin shopping guide — everything in my cart is pumpkin. From waffles, to English muffins, to ravioli — I cannot get enough pumpkin.
Gets us closer to Thanksgiving — my favorite holiday of all the year!
Colors of fall — #orangeismyhappycolor, brown, gold. The leaves changing.
Gardening in the fall — the best time of the year to plant new things in the garden like bulbs, pansies, and mums. We have several new flower beds to prepare this fall and I am excited to get them started.
See, journaling can be fun and inspirational! Visit 30 Days of Lists to learn more about their challenge.
