Thinking Out Loud: Fall Feelings

I am definitely having mixed feelings about fall this year. I am excited for cooler temps and fall activities, but not quite ready to say goodbye to summer. How about an update on some things going on this week, thinking out loud style?
Labor Day may have come and gone but I just can’t give up my white jeans. They were my go-to pants all summer and I am going to be really sad when it’s too cold to wear them. I usually follow the rule of no white pants after Labor day but I am rebelling this year.
While I am sad to see summer ending (which makes me feel like winter is around the corner), I am pretty happy to see these temperatures.
55 degrees for running in the morning?! Can’t complain about that. I even had to wear a long sleeve shirt over my t-shirt for my drive to the track on Tuesday.
Fall also means that football is back. I’m not anti-football by any means but I don’t really have a team I follow (I’ll still cheer for NY but I am now surrounded by Baltimore fans and just can’t get behind it) and I have a hard time watching more than 30 minutes of a game. I’ve gotten really good at napping during football games- last weekend was my first football nap of the season.
Over the summer I got kind of lazy about cooking. I still made all my meals but I was less creative and often took the easy way out. Maybe it was just because it was too hot to stand over a hot stove or turn on the oven. On Sunday I made a sweet potato hash for the first time in months- I forgot how good those are!
More cooking may mean getting more creative in the kitchen these days, but I’m not about to get behind the pumpkin fad. It’s like Pinterest has been taken over by pumpkins! And like I said, I’m struggling with this summer to fall transition as it is.
Do you wear white pants after labor day?
Who else has mixed feelings about fall?
Are you a fan of pumpkin? What about football?
