I am a really, really terrible blogger.
I shouldn’t be. I have the WordPress app on my iPhone . I could blog from the Metro if I wanted to– but I think I’m too much of a nitpicky grammar nerd to ever try and do that. Predictive text, my foot.
I say it every time, but I’m going to endeavor to be a better blogger. I average one blog post a month (excluding April… we’re just going to blame the grad school professor from you-know-where for that lapse), which is lame. So, my new goal is to blog at least once a week. It might be about something, it might be about nothing– probably the latter– but at least I’ll be blogging.
Ooooh, fun tidbit to share: two weeks ago, I placed 2nd in The Pioneer Woman’s Titanic quiz. Won a $150 gift card to Amazon and everything! See, Mom? All those years of watching Titanic over and over and over again finally paid off! 😀
I love fall. Did you know that?
It’s my favorite season. I mean, don’t get me wrong: I love summer. Who doesn’t? How can you not love a season where tank tops, flip flops, and frozen adult beverages consumed on patios are en vogue? Summer reminds me of being a kid; of traveling across the south and playing softball every weekend, showing cattle during the hottest week of July, and family vacations at Sandestin. But summer also is one thing: hot. Hot. HOT.
And humid. Farewell, sleek and controlled curls. I hardly knew thee.
But fall. Oh, fall. (Or autumn, if you’re too European to say fall). How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
True, my Ole Miss Rebels are on a highway to hell. Tennessee isn’t doing much better. But I love football, and I’ll still watch (if only so I can cheer against Mississippi State and Florida). And no, I really can’t see the stars from my humble city dwelling, but I’m sure they’ll still be there when I go home for Thanksgiving. But I have PUMPKIN!
And if you’re like me and love pumpkin (Kristen, I’m looking at you!), then you’ll enjoy this: An Open Letter to Pumpkin Flavored Seasonal Treats (via McSweeney’s).
What’s your favorite thing about fall? 😀
