It's full-on fall AND {almost} the weekend. Score!

Happy Friday! The weekend is quickly approaching, and the weather in Texas finally reached reasonable (almost cold) temperatures. It's been amazing to pull out the fall sweaters, boots & jean leggings. (An outfit I've worn some combination of every day this week).

With fall comes the usual longings of carving pumpkins, drinking hot chocolate, and going to football games. But, there's also some things that I start desiring in the fall that aren't on your usual list.

I start getting really homesick. Which makes sense during the holidays, but October 1 isn't exactly close to holiday season. I always miss my mom & sisters more in October than any other month. This year is no exception, and it really sucks. But I'll see them soon enough & we talk on the phone almost every day.

I start to listen to very specific music. Without fail, every October comes around, and I remember I own Okkervil River & I start listening to them over and over. Their sound just so perfectly meshes with the weather, it's addicting.

I have the overwhelming desire to start watching Rocky Horror Picture Show. On repeat, if I could. We actually just bought the collector's edition on blu-ray, so hopefully I'll get my fix often enough.

I'm friendlier in the fall. Since that's traditionally when you meet new people (hello first day of school!) I guess that natural time line of having to make new friends in the fall has continued on way beyond my education. Though I'm not complaining.

Do you find yourself feeling certain ways in the fall too? (Besides the usually obsession with Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, which are just fantastic.) I want to make sure I'm not along here!

Thank you all so much for all the sweet comments throughout the week. 
They really make me smile ♥

{Have a wonderful weekend!}


  1. I love the fall! Have a great weekend!

  2. love fall! i didnt notice it until you said it but i listen to different music as well...love that song its so peaceful :)

  3. I love fall and definitely begin craving family time, too! Boots are the best, and once my toes go in, they rarely wear anything else until March. And the leggings - OMG. Fall fashion (the comfort, warmth, cozy, etc.) might be my absolute favorite. Happy Fall!

  4. Yay for the weekend! And weather here in NY is finally feeling like fall..my all time fave season. :)

  5. Glad it is finally cooling off for you. My husband was out there a few weeks ago and he said it was hotter than he could handle. And we're Floridians!

  6. I really love fall! Especially the cozy outfits and fall cuisine :)
    lovely blog! kisses from France,

  7. I have a love affair with Fall every year, and it JUST arrived here in Florida, finally. I adore any time of year that allows me to wear sweaters and hoodies, and bring me my favorite foods (anything pumpkin, please!).

  8. You have such a sweet blog =) And a great taste in music I might add! Pumpkin lattes are too good, I just bought a HUGE pumpkin to turn into soup!

  9. i tend to feel happier during the holiday months, too...but it doesn't seem like anyone else is when you step into the malls ar christmas time, lol!

    and, i have never see the rocky horror picture show. ever.

    What's the next line? Help write the story!

  10. Fall music, and drinks are the best this time of the year!!! :) YAY!!!
