I love Fall!

I absolutely love Fall! I love the colors, the smells, the food, and the fall fun!!!! I love taking the kids to the pumpkin patch and for leaf gathering walks. I love cooking with apples, mushrooms, pumpkin, and smokey seasonings. I love the deep dusky colors of the kids snugly clothes, the trees that look like sunsets, and the awesome glow of a harvest moon. I love the smell after a light rain, the scent of pumpkin spice candles, and the aroma of comfort food slowly cooking in the oven. There are leaf piles to jump in, costumes to pick out, and warm spiced tea to sip - what's not to love????? I'll tell you what - the 100Th caramel I have just eaten, that's what! I can't stop eating them!!! I didn't buy Halloween candy yet because I knew I would eat it. I did buy caramels for a caramel apple family fun night activity. Why? Why? Why? I should just stop having family fun night, I mean I should just throw them away but I just can't! UGH! The good news is that the bag is almost gone and then i will be free from this terrible addiction....


  1. Confession: I secretly opened our bag of Halloween candy to satisfy a wicked chocolate craving. Then I taped the bag back up hoping no one would notice. You are not alone! :)

  2. Caramels sound so good! I would do exactly the same as you; that's why I don't buy Halloween candy until Halloween day! :)

  3. I have officially stopped losing baby weight...UGH! And with this time of year and all the apple dapple cake and other comfort food, I am totally gaining! I wish you were closer. Now that I am eating with reckless abandon, we might as well have a creme brulee date! ;)


say what?
