In the mood...

Being patient isn’t something that comes easy for me. Being pregnant and it being summer I feel like I come up with 5 new excuses a day for summer to be OVER!! I haven’t always been like this. I used to love summer; I grew up in Florida for goodness sake. But I can officially say right now I couldn’t wish summer away fast enough. So I sit at my desk and think about all the fabulous things I love about fall. Here is what I am in the mood for and get giddy inside just thinking about them;

College football – Watching Gator football games literally brings Goosebumps from head to toe. Pirate football has been an experience I will never forget and I will be proud to call ourselves “Pirates” this time next year. It’s not quiet the same as the swamp but it has a special place in my heart.
Season Premiers - I’m not sure why but it always seems as if the BEST shows come on in the fall. SYTYCD (being my favorite), Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, The Bachelor, Burn Notice are just a few of what I am looking forward too. New Moon – Yes I am one of those addicted Twilighters (as is Josh but he wont admit it) and I can’t wait for this movie to come out. I’m hoping for it to be longer then Twilight but we shall see. The only bummer about the release date of the movie, its one day after I’m due… Halloween – This is probably my most favorite holiday ever!!! Second is Christmas and then 4th of July. There is something so fabulous about Halloween. The smells, candy, colors, costumes…it’s so great! I have to say since living in NC and seeing the 4 Halloween stores go up around town starting in July it just makes it that much better. I’m not into the scary Halloween’s but the cutesy kind. I also think one of the reasons I love Halloween is because that’s when the Gators play the Bulldogs and it’s ALWAYS a huge football weekend. What more could you ask for, Halloween & college football all in one!! Holiday Decorations – With being so impatient also comes with wanting to change things frequently. Being able to do this October through January is just simply amazing! I am one of those who will buy those little nick knacks and plates for ANY holiday. I think we need to add more Holidays throughout the rest of the year.

Leaves changing – After living in Florida my entire life moving to places where the leaves actually change and you get all 4 seasons its pure magic! I honestly don’t think I could ever live in a place where I can’t get all 4 seasons! The trees here are AMAZING and makes you want to stand outside and sing like you are in a musical. Pumpkins – It’s amazing to me what this veggie (right?) does! I mean think about it, what other vegetable is more popular or famous during a holiday?!! Decorating with them, carving, pumpkin seeds, soups, cookies, costumes, the list goes on and on! Hot Chocolate – Lets face it…nothing beats hot dark chocolate on a chilly day. Morning, noon or night!
Fall Clothes – I am usually one who is all about the beach on a hot day but THIS year I cant wait for it to be freezing outside, being able to put on jeans (post baby) my fuzzy boots and a long sleeve tee and wearing a different scarves everyday of the week!

Lincoln Alexander Smith – This is probably the thing I am MOST in the mood for. I can’t even put into words how ecstatic I am to meet my little man. To see him with his daddy, I have a feeling he isn’t going to look much like his momma. That’s ok because I’m a pretty big fan of his daddy. He is moving so much these days and it just makes the wanting to see him that much worse. I feel so blessed to be able to be a mother. Still I think the thing I'm scared of the most is labor but hopefully I will be stronger then I think. If not someone please take care of my poor hubby. :-)

Just looking at my list again makes me smile. I think its time to switch to a fall sent for candles and such!!
