Fall is Here, Hear the Yell

Don’t you just love…fall? It makes me want to shop for back to school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name… – You’ve Got Mail

The cooler weather reminds me of my college days, when all of my friends would head back to school. We were all so excited to catch up with old friends, walk around campus, and check out our classes. We also looked forward to Saturday morning football games – of course!

Because I was in a sorority, we’d all gather at “the house” or our brother fraternity’s house for a pretailgating event, which usually involved mimosas, spicy hot chocolate, and bagels. We’d start out around 8/9 AM drinking and socializing until around 10:30 when it was time to head over to the field for the real tailgating. These mornings always had a chill in the air, just enough for you to need jeans, a hoodie, and your favorite warm beverage to keep you from shivering – and having a fraternity boy to snuggle with wasn’t so bad either! I have to admit, the preparties and the tailgating were often more fun than the football game itself. Oh how I miss those days!

I’m sure many of you have similar memories, but I’d like to know –  What’s your favorite memory about going back to school in the Fall?

  1. Yay! I can’t wait to use my new Clairfontaine journal! 🙂

    I am going to have to agree with you. There’s nothing like college football days. Tailgates with friends are the best, especially if you’re rooting for a great team! (Hook ’em Horns! ;))

    Other than that, my favorite fall traditions include bundling up in cozy clothes and indulging in all the treats with pumpkin in them!

    • Hi Anita! I love everything pumpkin! Just had my first “pumpkin” treat of the season last night, a slice of a pumpkin/cream cheese roll. So good!
