Guest Post: K from Down at Fraggle Rock

Hey There! I'm K from over at Down at Fraggle Rock. You may have seen me around these parts before since Megan and I are pretty close blog friends.

Megan has asked me to fill in for her while she is off to Hawaii (brat) awaiting the arrival of her bestie's new baby, so I'm here to talk about my favorite season...FALL!

I love me some Summer, don't get me wrong, but since my waist line is expanding by the day (I'm knocked up, not letting myself go! Haha) and I can no longer enjoy some ice cold Coors Light, I'll take sweaters and hot chocolate instead.

So... without further adieu... here are some of my most favorite Fall things.

(Oh, and I tried to make the pictures all pretty, but I'm home today and my computer is NOT my friend. This is why I usually blog from work...during non-working time of course...)

1. Spiced Pumpkin candles.

I love Fall scents. Flowery scents usually make my throat close, so when I can finally break out my Fall scents, I'm a happy girl. Especially now, when I think everything smells bad. They are a savior.

2. Bonfires.

I'm not a huge fan of fires in the Summer. It gets too hot. The Winter... is too cold. I don't want to be outside if I have to put on a jacket and a hat and mittens and boots and blah blah blah. Fall is perfect thought. If I can hang out in a hoodie, then I'm in.

3. Foliage.

I'm from Massachusetts and we have some pretty crazy weather. You know how they say, "Don't like the weather in New England? Wait a minute."? Yeah... that's pretty much true. So, our nice seasons are fleeting. Our winter last forever though, so if you like that then you will love it here. BUT, my most favorite thing is watching all of the leaves change into beautiful shades of red, gold, and orange. Gorgeous!

4. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins.

These things are to DIE for. Shannon is one of my faves and she posted this recipe last year and I was hooked. They are super easy to make and Big A (my hunky husband) loves them, so I'm pretty much the best wife ever when I make them! Love, love, love!

5. Starbucks Sea Salted Caramel Mocha Latte.

Since I was watching my weight for the wedding, I got used to drinking Skinny Vanilla Lattes. They were OK, but now that I can have a little more freedom with what I eat, I wanted something delicious to drink while I could still afford to go to Starbucks. (Plus, let's be honest, Starbucks isn't the place for a screaming infant and we all know that my kid won't be well behaved in public places) I tried this one day, since I'm totally obsessed with Sea Salted Caramel Gelato (buy it NOW) and I LOVE it. I limit myself to only one (or two) a week though since they are a million calories and like five bucks. Woof.

6. Last, but not least... my boys... The Patriots.

I should have had this with the bonfire, since they go hand in hand in my world. We watch all of the games outside. ALL season long. Yeap. We are out there in the snow in January. It's an experience. Although, since I won't have the booze to keep me warm this year, I might be staying home. Haha. I love me some Patriots. And even though Gronk is out with an injury, Hernandez is in jail (idiot), and Megan stole my man Welker got traded, I'm still watching. I'm not as into it, but I'm there.

That's all I got for you today! I hope Megan is having an absolute blast in Hawaii and I can't wait to hear all about her trip!!!

Also, speaking of Fall Favorite Things, don't forget to enter the Fall Swap that Megan and I are hosting with two of our other awesome blog friends Britt and my fellow knocked up lady, Laura! Go here to enter!
