How do you like that title for some alliteration, huh? I figured since it’s already nearing the end of October (I swear, time is flying by!) I’d do a post about my top five favorite things about fall. Now, I am not a huge fan of Halloween. I never really was, even as a kid. Sure, dressing up was fun and everything, but it was never one of my favorite holidays. The fall season, however, is a different story. I absolutely LOVE everything about fall! So without further ado, here are my top five favorite things about fall:
1. The Colorful Leaves!
In my opinion, fall has some of the prettiest colors of any of the seasons, especially up north when all of the leaves change.
These photos don’t even do justice to how beautiful the leaves get at this time of year. Even though the pretty colors last only a few weeks before they all drop to the ground, they sure are nice while they last!
I love pumpkins! When we were younger, we used to go to a pumpkin patch every year to get our pumpkins. We would ride on a tractor out to the field, and my sisters and I would each get to choose a pumpkin. I always went for the little ones because I thought they were so cute! I plan on carving a pumpkin this weekend, so maybe I will post some pictures if it turns out good!
3. Honeycrisp Apples
I know that tons of people go gaga over honeycrisp apples, and I had actually never tried them before a few years ago. Oh.em.gee, they are seriously the best apples! Honeycrisp are by far my favorite type of apples (fugi are a close second), but it’s a shame they are available only a certain time of year. Oh well, better stock up now!
4. Seasonal Food Finds
I just about shrieked with excitement when I found these in the grocery store last week, AND found out they were 10/$10! Score! I picked up a few, but wish I would’ve bought more! So far I’ve tried the peppermint, and it is so good! I was worried it would be too sweet, but it actually has a nice peppermint flavor, and unlike some of the other flavors, doesn’t have that weird soy aftertaste. I have tried the gingerbread and pumpkin before, but it’s been a few years. I’ll let you know what I think when I try them again!
If you’ve never tried this ice cream, go do yourself a favor and get some! It’s super yummy! And speaking of ice ceram, fall also means pumpkin pie blizzards at Dairy Queen! 🙂
Finally, fall means that the holidays are just around the corner. I love the holiday season because it means more time with my family. I love having the holiday season to look forward to!
What’s your favorite part about the fall season? Or favorite parts, if you can’t pick just one!!!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
