How was the weekend? Ours was good, we had to change up the program but fun nevertheless. Babe and I planned an end of the summer activity for the family at Kings Dominion. The kids have never been and I was really looking forward to it but such is life. Hurricane Florence shut that all the way down with a torrential downpour. We met up with TheStyle Medic and her family and played Laser Tag! It was more of a workout than I remember. If you and or your loved ones are in the path of the now category 4 hurricane be safe!
We are 12 days away from the fall and I am excited. The school supplies have been packed up and Halloween costumes are everywhere. I am over summer and I am sending fall all of my good vibes. Fall is my favorite time of the year for several reasons.
Reason #1: Fall Fashion
I love fall fashion because it is the best of both worlds. You can transition some of your summer pieces into fall fashion. You can rock booties and a peep toe and be perfectly fashionable and cute. If it gets chilly you can put on a moto jacket, a bomber, or my favorite a denim jacket. I complete my look with a hoop scarf and you can’t tell me anything. Oh, I can’t forget the best loungewear ever, a onesie pajama.
Reason #2: My Birthday
I am a proud Libra born on October 18th. I like long walks in the mall, and Netflix and chilling. I enjoy celebrating another year of life no matter how big or small that celebration might be. This year is my last go around with these here 30’s. You better believe I am going to make it count in major ways. I’m even more excited about turning 40 next year.
Reason #3: Television
This is when my favorite shows return. My DVR is worked more than a hooker on a Friday night. I’m talking Grey’s Anatomy, This is Us, 9-1-1, Black Lightning, Station 19, Blackish, Grownish, The Chi and a few others.
Reason #4: Food
Our meals get hearty, I’m a true fatty at heart so this should probably be reason number one. I can officially make chili, sweet potato pie, and get the crockpot going on a regular basis. Then there is Thanksgiving, the Super Bowl of food.
Reason #5: Fresh Air
The weather is great for opening the windows and airing the house out a bit. This also means I get a break on my electric bill. Amen! Truthfully, I’m so grateful that Fall means that I have a slightly lower electric bill, as it just means that it saves me a few extra pennies. I was thinking about changing providers recently though. My friend was telling me how they use TXU plans and this has made a huge difference when it comes to their electric bills. I think when I get a free afternoon, I’ll take a look at maybe switching providers, just in case I could actually save more money.
Oddly enough I enjoy a good hike this time of the year as well. I have committed to a workout plan with Babe so I can get some running in before it gets cold. Plus I need to work off all the food I mentioned above.
