1.) It's cooler out, but it's not cold yet. I love summer, but after a month or so of so-hot-that-I-can't-breathe weather, it's nice to need long-sleeves in the morning.
2.) With colder weather comes the ability to turn on my oven. Not that I couldn't turn it on in the summer, it was just so darn hot. So far, I've made 2 batches of pumpkin cookies. Up next : pumpkin bread and apple cinnamon bread.
4.) HALLOWEEN. I'll be honest, I like candy. But I LOVE dressing up. This year, I am thinking of making my own Red Riding Hood costume. Wish me luck.
5.) Pumpkin spiced lattes!
6.) All my favorite shows come back to television. I watched the season premier of Bones on FOX last night, and next week Castle returns to ABC.
7.) My favorite kind of apples, honeycrisps, will be affordable again.
8.) Sweaters and jeans help hide the extra pounds way better than swimsuits and shorts.
10.) It is actually dark outside when I put my kids to bed! No more, "I can't sleep, it's still sunshiney."
