Happy ICLW!

It's party week in the blogging world! Welcome to all newcomers, hope you're having a great day! I'm Amanda and my hubby is C. I have PCOS and I don't ovulate or have periods and he has non-obstructive azoospermia due to a Y Chromosome Micro Deletion. You can read all about it here or a shorter version is on the right. It's been hell and we're currently on a break to save for IVF and/or adoption.

It's been hotter than the 5th circle of hell around here and I need to escape. I need cooler weather and pretty leaves and all things pumpkin so let's share our favorite things about Fall!

First is Halloween! I adore it and decorate like crazy and we have a big costume party every year.

Growing up in Houston, the leaves didn't do this and I LOVE it! That is Mt. Magazine here in AR

I love eating/drinking all things pumpkin related in the Fall. I am eagerly anticipating the Pumpkin Spice latte!

Camping, hiking and a fire is just Heaven to me, I can't wait!

I love the crisp, cool air and the feeling of change in the air. Taking walks around our neighborhood and seeing the pretty leaves swirl through the air, the way they crunch under my feet, which are in actual shoes rather then flip flops! Dragging out cardigans and sweaters and fabulous boots and keeping the windows open all the time to cool the house. Hitting up our local orchard to pick apples with friends and again, all things pumpkin!

ahh, I feel much more relaxed and cooled off now, don't you? Hurry up Fall!!


  1. Fall is my favorite time of year too. It probably doesn't help that my birthday is in November, so fall is usually associated with lots of positives! I do live on the coast though and have never experienced true seasons. Even so, there is a change in the air that comes every fall. It is like a crispness or a clarity that you can just sense in your bones. The temperature doesn't change, and other than the waning sunlight, that feeling in the air is one of the few clues we have that something is different.

    I hope that this week goes better for you than last week did! Last week was hard for me too. Take care - Foxy

  2. A few years back my hubby and I spent soem time in the fall in the States - what bliss! I have never seen such a riot of colours in my life and Halloween realy is such a fun holiday. Enjoy as you head into your favourite season.

  3. I am excited for fall to come as well.

  4. I love fall, too!!! And the fact that pumpkin is everywhere and in everything is a major bonus! :)

    Happy ICLW!

  5. I do like fall.... I just dread winter! But mmm... pumpkin spice.

    Happy ICLW

  6. I'm from Australia here and just finishing up winter. It doesn't get too hot here so I am actually looking forward to summer as I hate the cold. So it sounds like I am the opposite to you but that's probably because I live on the opposite side if the world to you! I wish you all the best for the future, whatever you decide. Oh and happ ICLW and thanks for stopping by my blog. Kim
