Why Won't the Weather Match the Season?

Fall is in full swing.  Fall colors and pumpkins (and pumpkin spice) are everywhere.  I wore my boots for the first time last week.  I love fall clothing and warmer fall weather, but this year, we're getting a lot of rain and gloom. It just doesn't feel like fall.  My family is planning to go to a pumpkin patch this afternoon, but as I write this post the day before, I just don't know if it's going to happen.  Pumpkin patch in the rain is just...wrong.  When we lived here before, two years ago, the weather wasn't like this.  The fall was warm and sunny and beautiful and I was looking forward to that again!

What does "fall weather" mean to you?  Does it mean cool?  Cold?  Rainy?  Gloomy?  And what are your can't miss fall activities?  (The ones that you'll even brave the rain for.)

And while you are thinking about fall, meet my fall sponsors.  And don't forget, only 72 days until Christmas.  (I'm trying to get all my Christmas shopping done before Advent this only 48 days left of shopping for me!)

Meet Blogging for Brett.
Orphan. CP. Needs a mama.
Adorable. So much promise.
Brett is an orphan in Eastern Europe who needs a mama. I started advocating for him through Reece's Rainbow in April 2012 because I couldn't believe that such an adorable little boy should face life in an orphanage and eventually a mental institution just because his legs don't wok.  I'm hoping through this blog that we can find Brett some parents and give him a brighter future in Canada or the USA.

  1. Fall in south Texas means its 80° instead of 100°! We generally go for an ICED pumpkin spice latte and sweat our way back to the car after picking out a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.

    Picking a Halloween costume is always tricky because you will either sweat it out in a warm costume because the high that day was 90° or freeze to death if you pick a cooler costume because surely with that choice a freak cold front will come through.


I'd love to hear what you have to say! You can also contact me directly by emailing me at
