Falling For Fall

Is it so wrong that I am so, so ready for Summer to be over??
Don't get me wrong, I really love Summer - this Summer in particular has been pretty magnificent - but I'm ready.

Ready to break out the boots, and longsleeves; the big cozy sweaters; the pumpkins & scarecrows.
To shop for halloween costumes, visit the pumpkin patch, to sip pumpkin spiced lattes? Yes, dear God YES - sign me up!

It's no secret that Fall is my favorite time of the year, I just love everything about it - the colors, the food, the smells; hands down - the best!

I've already started shopping and putting together my wish list of things that I need want for Fall.

A few of my favorite pieces so far:

I also got little miss' Halloween costume last weekend - she is loving Doc McStuffins lately, when I asked her what she wanted to be for halloween she said "Duh silly, Doc!"; well she didn't say that but she mine as well have.

Is this beyond cute or what???!!! I love it. I kinda want a doc costume myself.

Listening – I pretty much have been listening to Taylor Swift repeat for the last week. Don’t judge.
I love me some T Swift. Especially after seeing her a few weeks ago in Philly during her Red Tour. Say what you will, she is one hell of a performer, and put on such great show. "I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it". Seriously, love.

Reading – Not much, unless well you count my weekly US Weekly and People perusing. Everytime I pick up a book lately I just loose interest quick. Makes me sad because reading used to be one of my favorite hobbys.

Eating – Oh my goodness, everything that I can get my hands on lately (and aheam, I am not pregnant). I blame PMS. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! I’m really love these amazing Skinny Cow (peanut butter crème) bars. SO delish!!!

Feeling – Anxious! I have a lot coming up (Sophia’s 3rd birthday with her cousins, a few events planned in the next few weeks and well - a grandson on the way…good lord!) I definitely have a lot to look forward to, and I couldn’t be happier with where I am at the moment, but my plate is pretty full.

Drinking – Diet Coke is my kryptonite. I just can't quit you.

Weather – This morning I woke up to a breezy 63 degree chill! I love it. Wish summer was like this constantly; those 100 degree days? No thanks.

Wearing - My skinny zippered ankle jeans from Torrid. LOVE.

Wanting – A vacation, a little bit of a break – oh and maybe a maid on top of that. You don’t think that’s too much to ask for right??!! We are planning our first big family vacation to Disney next October. Sophia will be 4 – which I think is the perfect age to go! I’m excited, and I think she will be too!

Thinking - Is it too early to buy Sophia's halloween costume? She is OBSESSED with Doc McStuffins lately, and we found this cute costume at the Disney Store, but it's August ya'll??!! I feel like it's too soon, but if I wait will they sell out? What's a girl to do?!

Enjoying (TV edition) – Loving, loving, loving Showtime’s new “Ray Donovan” series! Liev Schreiber is amazing (and not too bad to look at either!). Mistresses – so campy but so fun! And RHOC – seriously, I cannot get ENOUGH of those crazy girls!

We have seriously been having the best summer. Our calendar has been and continues to be jam packed, but in a good way!

Officially kicked off the summer with my very first New Kids concert! No lie, I've loved these guys since I was 9! After trying to get tickets for months, I gave up. One of my friends from work emailed me one day and said she had two tickets to their show in Philly and wouldn't be able to make it, and did I want the tickets? HELL YES! They put on an amazing show!! So much fun!

Little miss learning how to play T-Ball, I think we have a future slugger on our hands!

Fun times at our town's fair!

Lots of Sesame Place visiting! And yes proud mom moment when my girl finally posed for a picture with Cookie Monster!

I think she's ready for hollywood (on second thought, let's scratch that idea!)

Lots of fun times with her cousins!

A certain someone turned THREE!!!!

Lots of watermelon eating

Mama and baby dates (seriously my fave!!!)

Showering my stepdaughter, and getting ready for a new baby!!!! Yep, this ladies gonna be a Mimi!

Taylor Swift in Philly (amazing!!!)

And Wicked (date day with the hubby!)

That's only a snippet of what we've been up to the last few months, hard to beleive that August here and Summer is officially dying down. I'm sad and happy at the same time!
