Current Favorite TV show

The big long wait is finally over and before you know it we will be sitting at Christmas dinner; but let's not get ahead of ourselves because it is finally (insert Chevy Chase drumroll)....FALL!!! Can you believe it's finally here!? 

One thing that has to do with my love for fall is Halloween. That being said, my current favorite TV show is "The Munsters." I think everything about this show is great, oh and did I mention hilarious! If you are in need of a good laugh, watch this and try not to cry from laughter. 

If you are a person that has never experienced the joy of being a Munsters fan, then jump on the bandwagon (or shall I say coffin) and start watching. 

When I was little I must have been brain dead or something because I could not enjoy black and white shows. I hated every single thing about them, but here lately my viewpoint on them has changed tremendously. In dedication to fall, go watch one episode of the monsters tonight!

P.S. The episode (Season 1 Episode 4) where Herman thinks Lily is pregnant is probably the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Snapshots of the Day!

It's beginning to look a lot like pumpkins, everywhere you go

So aside from the normality of Hobby Lobby constantly having some sort of fall item, you know that fall is right around the corner when you see the obnoxious bins of pumpkins parked directly in front of the lovey automatic doors at Kroger (and you know winter is around the corner when you walk past those bins and step on rotten pumpkin guts while reading a sign that says free pumpkins.) Besides the aftermath of these pumpkins, I love fall. I love everything about it; the trees, the colors, the smell, the weather, the movies, the food and the clothes! I've always told myself that I am a piece of fall due to my birthday being in October. Coincidentally, my favorite holiday is Halloween. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all, it's just fall is so exciting because it's basically the start to all of the good holidays. People might argue with this and say obviously New Years is the start to the best holidays, but I think of holidays in very simple terms; there is Halloween, Thanksgiving Eve(which consists of a day in fasting so your stomach can bloat up really big on actual Thanksgiving), Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve Eve, Christmas Eve, Christmas, Christmas Cool Down, New Years Eve, New Years Day, and the Super Bowl. Since these are pretty close to each other and all chronological, it just makes since that fall is the opening to the most amazing time of the year. While I understand that all of the other holidays are very important, they just are not top priority on my list and I prefer to give the holidays mentioned above all of my love and devoted attention.

Hocus Pocus on TV while pumpkin candles are burning with caramel being made on the stove. Everything outside looks picture perfect; the oranges and reds, deep mahogany and amber. The crackle of the fire on the first crisp night of fall. The unforgettable sky with the full moon and the wolf howling in the woods.

Does anything else need to be said? Fall is magical and these are the reasons that I love it.

When you notice the leaves changing and falling on the ground, take a walk and listen to the crunch as you step on them. Breath in the fall air that's only here for a short while until we get to move on to the next beloved holiday.

It's beginning to look a lot like pumpkins
Everywhere you go
Take a sip of that tea again, cinnamon once again
With candy corn and pumpkins all to grow

It's beginning to look a lot like pumpkins
Leaves all on the ground
But the silliest sight to see is the treaters that will be
On your own front door

Tick tock, tick tock

The clock will always tick because time is immortal; at least that's how we treat it. We let time get in the way. We find no way to conquer it. Our lives are built around it. We take no time to enjoy the small things like noticing the beauty in a curvy road that parallels our life; full of twists and turns. A lot of the time we miss these twists; some of which that could lead to something amazing. Life is short and we should never put ourselves on the limits we are guilty of putting ourself in. Enjoy life and take risks! Not stupid ones ones, but enjoyable ones that make you smile and think what in the world have I gotten myself into. Never skip to the next song to see if you're missing a better one. Enjoy the song you are listening to now and live a life worth writing a book on.
