Things I'm Excited For!

I woke up today in a particular fall-ish weather. While I love the long days of summer and the ability to wear shorts and dresses, I must admit I am never a fan of the extreme heat that prevents me from ever enjoying the day. And to me extreme heat is roughly 80 degrees. I sweat a lot. A lot. I am very pleased with the cooler temperatures and the ability to wrap myself in warm sweaters and scarves. I am also waiting eagerly for the rainy season which allows me to feel less guilty about dirty my car is because the weather will conveniently clean it for me! Here's a list of things I am looking forward to: 

  • Boots! This is my obsession and I own way too many pairs, but still not enough. I love wearing them with anything and how putting a pair on makes even the most sloppy outfit look put together and thoughtful.
  • Hot chocolate, the fancy kind. Drinking hot chocolate is one of my most favorite things to do on a cold day, especially all the crazy gourmet variations that company's dream up of. Some favorites have to be the salted caramel, raspberry and white chocolate variations.
  • Sticking to the hot drink trend, I am also very excited for White Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks. I'm typically more on Team Peet's when it comes to coffee, however this red cup of happiness melts that rivalry in my heart temporarily because it is just such a delicious blend of creamy chocolate coffee-ness that epitomizes Christmas in a cup for me.
  • Pretty Little Liars! Tomorrow! Finally back! Can't form sentences!
  • While most people pick Halloween or Christmas as their favorite holiday I must say that Thanksgiving is my top pick. I mean a holiday where it is perfectly acceptable to eat double your weigh in turkey, sides and pies without (too much) guilt? Done.
  • Next Friday I get to see my all time favorite DJs, Above & Beyond!! They come out with some of the most beautiful and wonderful music ever, I could listen to them for hours and be happy about it.
  • The return of red lips. Now that we are officially out of summer and into fall, it is now socially acceptable to break out the red lipstick. There is nothing more wonderful than a well done red lip to brighten up a dark outfit.
  • Fall TV shows. This season is always my favorite when it comes to TV. I will be the first to admit that I watch an unhealthy amount of TV, but hey, as long as it's not disruptive, why not.
  • Candles, candles, candles. As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, I find myself constantly burning a candle. Currently I am in the very pumpkin-y mood and my room is in a perpetual state of baking pie smells. I'm looking forward to the minty chocolate and gingerbread scents as it gets closer to Christmas and eagerly wait for that collection to hit Bath & Body Works.
  • Taking the GRE, which is something most people dread, but I am actually really looking forward to it. To me that marks the beginning of something new for me. I have tried a number of different jobs and I just have not been able to find a match with my passion, so I am excited to embark on this new journey and return to school.
What are some things you're looking forward to right now?
