Looking Ahead: September 2015

September 1st already? It doesn’t seem possible…

Between moving from PA to MA, starting a new job, and buying a home/moving again, the summer months have definitely passed in the blink of an eye.

I know so many people love fall; however, to me, fall = prelude to winter and winter = the worst. Luckily, I’ve got some fun plans for the month of September, so that’s making the transition a little easier this year.

Here’s a look at what’s ahead this month:

  • Labor Day weekend–

I’m so excited to go home to PA this weekend! The last time I was home was the weekend of July 25th. It might not seem like a long time, but I’m definitely a little homesick, and I can’t wait to spend some time in PA for the long weekend. I’ve got plans to have lunch with my friend Sara (who I haven’t seen since her wedding!) and hit up the outlets to do some shopping. I also plan to get a pumpkin coffee at Wawa. Wawa: Please expand to New England!

  • Pumpkin-flavored things–

I am so that person who is going to eat pumpkin-flavored everything from now through Thanksgiving. Dunkin’ Donuts pumpkin coffee and PSL’s top my list, but I also like adding canned pumpkin to my oatmeal in the morning and pretty much anything else I deem appropriate. I also enjoy all of the processed “junk” food that comes in pumpkin flavor (ie, pumpkin Eggos and Oreos).

  • Fall in New England–

While I would prefer the trees stay full and the weather stay warm, I can’t help but look forward to the change of scenery that will begin over the next few weeks. Our backyard is heavily wooded, so I’ll be sure to share some pictures when the leaves begin to turn. I’m not thinking about the raking that is going to need to take place just yet…

  • Vacation–

Magic Bands

Last, but certainly not least, I’m going on vacation this month! I mentioned in my last post that we surprised my mom with a trip to Disney World for her 60th birthday; we leave on September 24th, which is getting so close! (I’ve had a countdown going since we were 100 days out #nerdalert.) I’ve heard September is a really great time to go to Disney, so I’m hopeful that the crowds will be light and the weather won’t be as treacherous as it is over the summer months (no hurricanes, please!). Regardless, vacation is vacation and I can’t wait!

What are you looking forward to in the month of September?

What is your favorite pumpkin-flavored thing?

What is your favorite thing about Disney World? I’ve been there several times over the past few years, but I love hearing recommendations for things to do/shops to check out/food to eat/etc.
