I love fall except.....

Fall is by far my favorite time of year. 

I love the changing of the leaves to beautiful reds and oranges.

I love dressing in jeans and sweaters and scarves (pretty sure because I usually feel fat and you can disguise your figure much easier with fall clothes.)

I love fall colors (earth and jewel tones have always looked best on me).

I love the cool crisp air and cold nights (and living in Seattle, the return of the rain).

I love college football (Go Hokies). 

I love Thanksgiving - its my favorite holiday!  Family, cooking, and shopping - the perfect combo!

I DO NOT love pumpkin stuff.  Starbucks goes crazy advertising their pumpking spice lattes.  Pinterest is full of recipes for pumpkin everything from pasta to chocolate chip cookies.  Why on earth would you ruin perfectly good cookies by putting pumpkin in them?  It's like adding raisins.  Yuck.

I actually don't mind pumpkin itself - I love sweet potatoes and squashes that are similar in flavor.  I do not like pumpkin pie spices like nutmeg and cloves.  I don't even like the smell.  People look at me like I'm crazy that I don't like pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving time but I think it is gross.  Just my opinion.  And its my blog so I can say what I want :-)  Anyone else think pumpkin stuff is gross?
