1. I. HATE. WINTER. And this week has FELT like winter. Most unusual for the first week of September in the south!
2. It finally feels like fall again. I don't really like fall either. I mean, it's OK. Pumpkin, cloves, apples, football, cinnamon, helping out with Trunk-or-treat at church, ginger, Pumpkin Spice Frappucinos, nutmeg, hot cocoa, oh and Thanksgiving. But I am still more of a spring/summer person.
3. Speaking of Pumpkin Spice Frappucinos, I drank one yesterday and now my lactose intolerant stomach is punishing me. But i can't give them up. It's like an abusive relationship.
4. I wore a white shirt yesterday, and I added white shoes to go to the football game. What. A. Rebel.
5. The reason i wore white shoes to the game was that my silver flats broke for the millionth time and I had to reglue them for the millionth time. #ineverlearn.
5. I want a pair of furry boots this winter. And a pair of cowboy boots, if I can find some that look feminine.
6. If you're still reading this, I love you. In a non creepy way.
7. I woke up this morning and was greeted by this:
