i have a confession.

I have a confession.

I don't like fall decorations. Or pumpkin anything.

Don't get me wrong, I love fall...but not for the same reasons as most. I love fall because my car doesn't feel like an oven anymore when I get in, baseball playoffs start (although thanks to last night, my October dreams were crushed), hockey starts, football games are fun, it's time for the NC State Fair, basketball tryouts happen....okay my likes are mainly having to do with sports. Also it's pretty outside and it's not miserably cold yet. (Yes, I know it doesn't get that cold in NC, but I don't like being cold at all.) I do like to wear a sweater, jeans, and boots so I guess that's a normal thing. 

But I highly dislike anything pumpkin flavored. Cookies, muffins, anything. And don't even ask me about pumpkin spice lattes that people go crazy over because I don't like even a drop of coffee in anything. I could have a cup of hot chocolate and if someone put one drop of coffee in it, I'd be able to taste it and I wouldn't like it. That's how much I don't like coffee. I'm weird, but Jordan feels the same way which is convenient for both of us I suppose.

I don't decorate for fall. Maybe I will a TINY BIT in the future if we have a house, because some of it isn't awful. Actually, the only fall decorations I can think of that look good to me are a few little white pumpkins inside with some greenery or something. And MAYBE a couple regular pumpkins outside on the porch that look classy and not modified too much or anything. Anything else brings this picture to mind:

It's fine when other people do all of the fall stuff, and I'm happy that they like it so much. It's just not for me. I like to keep things simple and clean looking when it comes to decorating, and I'm not a fan of stuff that is too "cutesy" as I like to call it. Also, orange really wouldn't fit in anywhere in our apartment.

Now Christmas is a whole different story. I'm gonna decorate the mess outta Christmas. But we'll talk about that after Thanksgiving... :)

Happy fall, y'all.

    you and the sweet sarah torsell are just a rare breed...anything in our apartment remotely resembling pumpkin flavor or smell would drive that girl crazy. guess it makes so much sense (probably for other, way more valid, reasons) that you two are best friends :)

  2. It's okay, Ashley! I am honestly not a huge fan of pumpkin either. I DO however, love apple cider and apple spice things. So, at Starbucks there's the Caramel APple Spic which doesn't have any coffee in it and is quite delicious. Looking forward to seeing you THIS WEEKEND! :)

  3. Just wanted to say.. even though I am a fall fanatic and wish I could live where it is fall year round, I laughed out loud reading your post! I love the vomiting pumpkin! And I haven't loved fall or pumpkins.. only when I moved to the mountains of NC did I begin to LOVE LOVE LOVE fall! By the way, you're from NC??

  4. I KNOW you loved the pumpkin muffins we made when you were in second grade. They were a winner! :) I love all of the decorations of fall, but am not always putting it out. I seem to forget in the madness of it all. Some of this may change, though, when you have kids of your own. I know it did for me. :) <3

  5. by the way you remind of a friend so much, and you had me laughing so much in your article about you trying a cofee related drink and how you think oatmeal raisin cookies are cruel for me oatmeal raisin cookies are my favourite i hate everything coffee everything pumpkin I am weird I know but i hate all veggies that I know about the only one i can tolerate is spinach(go figure) I am OBSESS with chocolate my fav is hersheys and then cadbury I hate grapes apple is my fav fruit and I love the cold weather but it's only cold in december and january in my country and no where compared to ya'll type of cold because we don't have winter I leave in the caribbean and I am always hott like ridiculously hott so I need to be in a country that makes cold i am miserable when it comes to the weather year round and while everyone else is freezing during december and january i'm smiling
