Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Falling for Fall

I tried, I honestly tried to embrace summer this year and not spend every hot, humid, miserable waking hour complaining about how much I hate summer and Minnesota and WASPS in over-sized SUV’s but I couldn’t it. I couldn’t do it because I hate summer, the hatred runs deep – the frizzy hair, the boob sweat, the electric bill that’s become as much as a car payment because of the glorious forced air. I can’t do it anymore, I am counting the days until fall and daydreaming of my favorite fall’ish things.

No lie, I stocked up on candles weeks ago and haven’t been able to light a single one because I swear they put off noticeable heat. I am ready to burn some candles, I have all of the fall scents just raring to go.

Keeping the windows closed in summer due to the constant AC running is as bad as keeping them closed in the winter to keep the heat it. I’m ready for crisp, cool air.

I’ve been taking lukewarm showers since June, it’s been torture but at least I can’t sweat in the shower…I don’t think…

I’m just not a pants gal, really looking forward to tights and skirts.

And booties, it wouldn’t be fall without them.

Muffins, cookies, pies…I just want to use the oven again, I don’t even really care what I’ll be making.

I love looking at all of the amazing school supplies that come out each year, this is the only time of year that I wish someone would loan me their kids. I’ll just purchase some office supplies in the meantime.

Actually, that’s a lie – all of the pumpkin spice concoctions can go straight to Hell but I suppose I must have one obligatory PSL latte but I’m not looking forward to it and will hate every minute of it.

Beard season is just around the corner, most definitely looking forward to all of the fabulous facial hair soon to be gracing all public spaces.

I’ll spare you now because we all know what’s coming September 1 πŸ˜›

Are you looking forward to the changing of the seasons or perfectly content with summer?

Thanks for stopping by <3

    This was hilarious, but so true! I can’t wait until Fall. This heat has my curls looking like cotton. Haha! I’m glad your spirits are up! How are you these days?

    I am so ready for summer to be over! It is definitely possible sweat in the shower lol it has happened to me! & I hate all things pumpkin spice too lol I love how you added it on the list anyways. πŸ˜‚

      Hahaha! I was like, I know I’m going to get one and I can’t be a hypocrite πŸ˜‚ I think it’s so overboard now, there’s a disgusting amount of pumpkin spice stuff. Yuck.

    I don’t really care for pumpkin spiced anything either. The PSL is probably okay the one-time but seriously, whatever lol.

    I am with you about fall! The one thing that’s annoying though is when you wear so many layers cos it’s cold outside and then you rush into work and you are hot. But otherwise, can’t complain. Love the cold, crisp air and coffee mornings. Love not overheating when wearing your favourite pair of jeans (jeans in the summer are a nightmare).

    My best friend is actually having her wedding next year on Halloween. It’s not halloween-themed or anything (I don’t think)…it just so happens that her fiancΓ© is a teacher and that week falls on a school holiday.

      Agreed, once is enough.

      Same, I feel like a stuffed turkey leaving some mornings but it’s better than being too hot and not being able to do anything about it. It’s just been so freaking hot! Coffee on fall mornings is everything 😊

      How fun!! Even if it’s not Halloween themed, what a cool anniversary.
