You Know It's Fall When...

When I think of fall, I think of... a crisp breeze, leaves in beautiful colors crunching under my feet, boots, sweaters, scarves, my BIRTHDAY (!)... all the very best things! I've been so busy over the past few months, I feel like summer never happened, and all of a sudden, my friend autumn has sneaked up on me! And I'm perfectly OK with that. (Of note: Did you know that snuck isn't the right thing to say? I didn't until today.)

You know it's fall when....
  • The pink suede moccasin boots come out! True story: My mom bought these lil' Steve Madden boots for me eight years ago when I was managing a student government campaign and our color was... pink! It went with the name of our party: PINC. As in, P.Inc., as in People Incorporated. Also, when I left on my mission, I left these in the basement at the top of my shoe rack... in front of a sunny window, and they remained perched atop their wooden perch for a year and a half, faithfully awaiting my arrival. (Unfortunately, sitting in the sun, fully exposed, for 17 months and 2 weeks took its toll, and one side of each boot is lighter than the other. Ooops. I love them anyway!) Also, apparently someone sold these on eBay recently for $36.06? 

I really need to do something about that stain... Anyone have good suede cleaning tips?


  •  Socks come back into your life! (Though honestly, they never leave mine. Obviously, I run with socks on. And I wear socks to sleep, even in the summer. I get cold, OK?)

Are you sensing a pattern here? I like pink! 
This bike has nothing to do with fall, but I saw it today, and it's pink!

  • Your post-class evening walk to the metro necessitates the wearing of your gray leopard-print cardigan over your $3 Miley Cyrus t-shirt. Baby, it's gettin' chilly outside!




  • THERE IS ALMOST ZERO HUMIDITY IN WASHINGTON, DC!! People, this is a BIG DEAL!! (And it only happens in the fall.)
  • You finally finish the Gryffindor scarf! OK, that one had nothing to do with fall, but you guys, YAY!!! I've never crocheted anything into fruition before!! This is ALSO a BIG. DEAL!!!
Almost done! (Circa 4am last night...)
It's done!


Welcome back, friend Fall! :)

  1. If that's an oil stain on your shoe, and if it's leather, cornstarch is supposed to work (like, put some on a tubberware, and then put your shoe in it overnight, maybe rub a little in)

  2. Yay that is exciting! I love the fall also! And I love the pink argyle socks. I'm a fan!

    So, I think Lee and I will be in the DC area (College Park) for a conference in November. We'll stay a couple days longer than my conference, so can we do something with you? Maybe you can show us around some sweet places to eat or hang out!

    2. Yay! Yay! Yay! I'm going to an FDA conference in College Park November 13-15. Lee is coming with, so we're staying a little longer...we'll probably leave on the 17th or 18th. He may want to wander around somewhere while I'm in the conference too!
