OctoberFEST

Thursday, October 1, 2009

I can't believe fall is finally here... I know I am a little late jumping on the bandwagon since the season officially changed last week, but today is the first day I've experienced so far this season where it truly feels like fall. The leaves are changing colors, there is a brisk chill in the air {especially when I get up at 5AM to head to the Y to workout}, and I am constantly thinking of how I need to change out my closet for all my fall and winter goodies {i.e. leggings, sweaters, and my plethora of scarfs!!}

I have to admit I am a little annoyed that this surden urge of fall has presented itself right before the UT/AU game this weekend--especially when all of us girls have had our "summery" dresses picked out for some time now. Oh well: we will make the best of it and tailgate in our dresses and bring jackets for the game just so our newly bought outfits don't go to waste =)
In other news, I've had a few of my friends ask for my Mom's beloved fall activity calendar she sends out each year. I am happy to let you TN ladies know that she said she'll be taking care of her "Fall Fun Activity List" next week after my parents get back from their beach trip this week {no pity party from me on that one-- I am super jealous!} There are so many exciting things to look forward to this month:

October 2-4: Knoxville for the UT/AU Game and Meg and Aaron's Engagement Party
October 9-11: Knoxville for the UT/GA Game and Zac Brown Band Concert
October 17: Dress Shopping with My Bestest and Visit to the Pumpkin Patch
October 24: My Grandmother's Birthday Celebration
October 30-31: Knoxville for the UT/SC Game and HALLOWEEN {my favorite holiday!!}

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October"
