Fall is on its way

Although it is still quite hot in Orlando, I must say I am very much looking forward to cooler temps and all the fun that fall brings. There's a lot to look forward to!

At the top of the list is Epcot's Food and Wine Festival. This is one of my most favorite fall traditions! All of the countries currently at Epcot, plus the extra countries they add in each year, set up stands with food and wine local to their country. You can choose from all sorts of small plates (so you can try lots of things!) and desserts and wine pairings for a few dollars per item. The food is delicious and it's so much fun to eat around the world. Although I cannot partake in the wine this year, I certainly will be tasting the yummy food and dessert!

Seeing that my baby bump will continue to get bigger through the fall, I have the feeling I will be wearing lots of leggings and tunics to stay comfortable. And no heels for this pregnant girl! I picked up these Corso Como boots at the Nordstrom anniversary sale this past July and look forward to wearing them this fall.  

I love themed treats and I will definitely have to pick up a bag of these - candy corn M&M's just scream fall! 

Another favorite fall tradition is to visit the town of Celebration (where I used to live!) and see the annual Falling of the Leaves. During a few weeks during fall, Celebration has a nightly dropping of the leaves. Everyone lines up on Market Street and the leaves (colorful fake ones) are dropped and swirl and fall all over the street as the little ones run to fill a bag of them. So fun! 

And last but not least, pumpkin treats! I do love Starbucks pumpkin muffins and scones, and will definitely have to indulge in a decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte at some point. I love all things pumpkin!

What are you most looking forward to this fall?

I am so excited about Food and Wine! I've always wanted to go and now it's far too easy :) I also am in love with fall treats... those m&m's sound awesome! And I already got my first pumpkin treat at Starbucks... a pumpkin spice frappuccino!

Ok, wait a minute...I just started a diet, lost 1.3 the first day, and you put candy corn m and m's and pumpkin muffins in front of me. Cruel...I will get me some :)

I would love to go to the Epcot Food & Wine event someday! It looks like so much fun, and I am totally with you on all the pumpkin. I bought a new pair of boots this year at the Nordstroms anniversary sale and I can't wait to wear them soon! :)
