Oh no, it's FALL already?!

Well, let me start off this post with some lovely fall pictures.



Now, if you are expecting me to go on and on about how much I love fall... you're on the wrong blog. I hate fall. Absolutely LOATHE it.
Let me give you some reasons why:
  • You know all those pretty colors that everyone oohs and ahhs about? To me, red and orange and yellow and brown leaves are not pretty. I see them for exactly what they are- dead. What's to love about a season where everything around you is DYING?
  • My favorite thing about nature is the color GREEN: Green grass, green leaves, green trees. Fall zaps all the "green" out of everything :(
  • Fall in northern Michigan is like a fleeting, pretty moment before winter... when everything will be buried under snow... for over six months.
  • Raking the yard is always a losing battle. I don't know about you, but after I've been working all day, I like to feel a sense of accomplishment. And, when a gust of wind scatters 1,000 leaves all over your freshly raked yard... that's just not cool.
  • My nose and knuckles are always chapped in fall. Ouch.
  • Fall = the season of runny noses and colds.
  • I just DON'T like it!
... but, at least I can get some pretty pictures.

It took me far longer to type out that list than it would for you to click below and vote for me... ;) Vote For Us @!


  1. I'm sorry but I LOVE FALL! It may because Texas winters aren't bad and the summer is so brutal but I loooove fall!

    You look absolutely FANTASTIC by the way!

    You also have some questions waiting on my blog for you :)

  2. First off, YOU ARE SO CUTE!! Your bump is perfect, I love it!

    I'm in Michigan as well, and I love Fall! It's not so much the leaves, but it's the weather. Not too hot, not too cold, and not snowing. Perfect! I also love Fall because when I first found out I was pregnant, I calculated my pregnancy out, and making it to Fall while still pregnant was one of my biggest hopes and dreams. And it's here! Yaaaay!

  3. Haha, this cracked me up. There are so many "woohoo it's fall!" posts around blogland right now, & it was fun to read something different.

    You are looking so cute!!

  4. So with you on the cold and snow and horrible things like that.

    Lucky for me we are heading straight into summer!

  5. I love this post! I like the fall but *only* b/c I don't like really hot weather, so it cools down some. Spring is my favorite season. I agree with AmyLee, everyone is posting about how much they love the fall so it was refreshing to read your post. ;) I love this pic of you btw. Can't wait to see Elliot!

  6. Yeah, wrong blog, come over to MINE for some fall-lovin'! Hehehe. :) Nothing wrong with loving GREEN...I do, too. I just love the cooler weather...and the colors...and pretty much everything about fall. ;) Mainly the cooler weather, for now! :)

  7. Um, are friggin' adorable! Love your belly, and the fact that you actually do your hair. I think I did my hair about 40% of the time when I was pregnant and now I just wear it up all the time to keep it out of the baby's (I mean Toddler, but I'm not ready to say that yet)grasp!
