Ready For Fall

Yea, I said it.  I'm officially counting down for cooler days, scarves, my birthday, stews, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc, etc.

                                 I'll be thrilled to wear cardigans/scarves again soon

Ugh, just looking at that pic above is making my fingernails sweat.  It is bloody HOT in Florida in the summer, yes we know.  However, every year, I seem to believe more regularly "this is THE HOTTEST year, right???"  It's gross hot, instant headache inducing hot, I want to punch a penguin hot.  That last example is quite dramatic.  I have nothing against penguins other than during summer when they seem to always be in freezing climates.

So with fall on my mind and my mind on fall, let's make this year's first quintessential blogger "I can't wait for fall!!" post:

1. I love how in fall an evening walk can happen before 8pm.  The sun and sky are gorge, the air more crisp, and just the overall vibe is peaceful.

2. I make chili like twice a year and yes, fall kicks that off.  I make damn good turkey chili and am proud of it.

3. Harvest themes, festivals, and pumpkins!  A little trick I do to treat myself (see what I did there? Huh, Huh?) to less unpacking and repacking decor this time of year is decorate in high amounts of pumpkins that work for Halloween and then transition into a Thanksgiving harvest motif. #suchathinker

4. Halloween is my fave holiday ever.  Love the spookiness, the sweet treats, the dress up potential.  Oh and the movies!  My God man, the movies are the best part of Halloween!

5. I'm going to list football but let me be clear; I myself am not a big fan of the sport itself.  But my Hunter loves it so while he enjoys that I usually catch up on everything else on this list that I adore about fall.  And I do enjoy tailgate food/drinkies so there's that.

I'm going to go drink more water now because, yea extra extra extra hydration required in Florida middle of July.  Wake me when September comes.

Let's meet again,
M

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
