I am oh so ready for fall to arrive! It's been so hot here. I'm just worn out
by it. I used to cheer myself up by wearing cute outfits. I would wear my
Lilly Pulitzer tops and shorts with cute sandals and brightly colored polish
on my fingers and toes. We would go out and soon afterward I would feel
like a limp, soggy mess. My normally fairly straight blonde hair gets all
wavy, but not the cute kind of wavy ~ just the untamable kind of wavy.
I don't know why I bother to put on make~up because it all wears off in
no time at all. I wear self tanner because I don't spend hours tanning
like I did when I was younger and I grow tired of trying to get the tanner
to look just right.
Complain, complain, complain!
I sound like a whiney baby, and that's just what this heat and humidity
does to me. But there is a light at the end of this heat wave tunnel ~
the temps have dropped ever so slightly. I am beginning to have hope
once more. I can hardly wait for the fall season to officially start!
I am going through photos from last year to get myself in the spirit
to look for inspiration for this year's fall decor here at home
because, we Texas gals are having another blog hop from
October 3rd through October 7th and I know it is going to
be a great one that y'all won't want to miss!
I love the rich, warm colors of fall. I love wearing sweaters and plaid.
Love mums and apple cider, tailgating and football games. The whole
season is full of color and festivity and fun!
We are so busy here in Texas too during these next several months.
Round Top Antique Week begins at the end of September.
Here is a gorgeous quilt I saw last year at the Big Red Barn.
Also, this fall we are planning to go up to New Braunfels for Wurst Fest. David and
I went there with friends years ago, before we were married. I saved our Tyrollean
hats! They have moved with us everywhere we have lived since originally
leaving Texas just after we were married. Wurst Fest is the 10 day
celebration to sausage. Lots of sausage, beer, German music and dancing ~
especially the Chicken Dance. You can read all about it HERE.
We also plan to be up in Cherry Spring (north of Fredericksburg) for another
one of their Big Band nights at the Hill Top Cafe.
So ~ bring on Fall! I am ready for cooler days and nights, sweaters and plaid,
pumpkins and mums. We are going to have lots of fun and I will share all
the activities with y'all, so get ready to party! And don't forget the Texas
Fall Blog Hop from October 3rd through the 7th. Bentley and I have
already started decorating :-)
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
