SPT~Fall


It hasn't reached Fall weather status here in Texas, just yet. Actually it usually stays quite warm through October and sometimes November, and then you just wake up one morning and it is cold out. Okay, maybe not cold to some of you that live out West or up North, but for a native Texan, the 40's are down right frigid.

I had no plans on doing this SPT, because I wasn't sure how to go about getting a fall-like picture when it is 90 degrees out. I also knew that I couldn't take a picture of my home decorated for Fall, because it isn't decorated. Last year after Halloween and Christmas I packed all of our holiday stuff away and moved it to a rented storage unit, thinking I wouldn't need it until after we moved. Well, since they told us our house would be done in August and it is now October, and they haven't even started the inside work yet I just may be celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas without OUR decorations. Today when I took Maryn to school I saw they had put out all of their pumpkins for their pumpkin patch. I thought of taking the picture then, but thought I would spare you my workout attire and my natural beauty, and decided to snap a picture this afternoon when I picked her up. I got a few stares and tried to be as descreet as possible, taking my own picture in the pumpkins, while everyone else was sanpping cute photos of their littles.

notice my fall shoes aka flip flops


Even though Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons, I do get giddy when it's time to pull out the holiday decorations. I just may need to go and buy a few necessities so I feel like fall and the holidays are fast approaching.

Fall in Texas is a lot like fall in Mesa AZ!!!
I had the same fall shoes.

Great spt :)

So sorry about your house.

Love your post. I was wearing those same fall shoes today. Gotta love flip flops :D. Sorry about the decorations being in hiding. And for your house not being done. That's got to be the worst....the waiting game.

I love that you sucked it up and took a SP anyway! Now that's dedication! Cute!

Is that your cup in the photo as well? I love those orange glimpses as I look out the window. Hard to believe it's pumpkin carving time. It was SO hot today. Hey, don't you still have your flag to put up? That counts.

Cute picture! I had to skip this SPT because I have nothing fall at my house. My decorations are in the attic and I am in no position to climb up there (I have never actually been in our attic), and Brandon's back is keeping him out....so there may not be many decorations at our house this year either (not to mention the possibility of having a baby coming close to Christmas time)

The pumpkins are very effective in rows nestled in the straw! So do the flip-flops come off when the temperature falls into the 40's?

Jill said...

Way to sneak in the self-portrait at the pumpkin place. I guess 90 degree weather is fall Texas style.

Our "fall" here is hot too. When we lived in SAT Luci went to MDO at Coker Methodist and they had a fabulous pumpkin patch there. I was able to get some great pics of her every year!

I feel a little self-conscious about the public self-portraits, too. I don't like the thought of no holiday decorations!

Bridget said...

Has UUMC always done a Pumpkin Patch? Why don't I remember that? Love the pic of yourself.

We are going to be in Texas the last full week in October. I would LOVE to see your house and of course make a Chuy's run. We will talk when it gets closer. Take care!

carlo said...

Is it possible to persuade you to post again soon? Pretty please??? For all your loyal fans. I'm dying to hear how your pregnancy is going now that you are in to the 3rd (?) trimester. And the house? Hope you all are well!
