Falling…and the Ultimate Fall To-Do List


The end of summer… where did summer go?   I had a great summer, but it went by way too fast.  Goodbye racetrack.  Goodbye beach.  Goodbye bonfires.  Goodbye S’mores.  Goodbye Grad parties. Goodbye McDonald’s ice cream cones.   Goodbye vacations.  Goodbye flip-flops.  Goodbye floating on a noodle in a pool.  Goodbye boating.  Goodbye beach-y hair.  Goodbye sun-streaked locks.  Goodbye summer days.  Goodbye summer nights.  Where did my suntan go?  Oh yeah, never had one!  Let’s look on the bright side…less wrinkles! But let’s face it, it’s not like I did nearly the number of things I love to do in the summer.  But I still have some of the best memories I will ever have, filed away in my memory (best long-term memory, ever.  Worst short-term memory, ever) so Summer 2015 is in the books, but one I can certainly re-read with fond memories.  🙂


Good news is we have Fall looming upon us, just days away.  And Football season is underway.  Speaking of Football, My Bears hung in there with the Packers, so that gives me hope for the rest of the season.  We finally had a coach with Enthusiasm, with a capital E! Welcome to Chicago, John Fox!


Back to Fall.  My favorite season for clothes.  Boots, sweaters, leggings, scarves, layers.  There must be an upcoming blog about Fall Fashion Trends.  Yes, there is!  But not this one.  There is more to Fall than football and fun fashions.



Loved this “Ultimate Fall To-Do List”… I especially love when something is called The Ultimate… What really is the Ultimate?  Well, according to Pow Wow, this is their Ultimate Fall To-Do List!  And I am one who really Loves Fall!

Song of the Day:  1979 by Smashing Pumpkins

We don’t even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below


Oh yeah, not only is My birthday coming up, but so is my sweet Meredith’s!  Happy Birthday to us!!


Best quote of the week…given to me as part of a gift from the Realtor to the Stars, Kathy P:

My Mother said I could be anything I want.  I choose FABULOUS!

Have a great weekend.  Peace out!  Go Bears!

  1. Love this …”Summer 2015 is in the books, but one I can certainly re-read with fond memories. :)” The second picture reminds me of driving through the Smoky Mountains in October. Enjoy your fall favorites, lots to look forward to. Especially in a couple days. 🙂
