5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Things About Autumn + October Topics + A SURPRISE!

I will preface this weeks 5 Fandom Friday by saying I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT AUTUMN.  I love the cooler weather.  I love wearing sweaters and scarves and sipping hot drinks and walking through colored leaves and getting into the Halloween spirit.  But above all, I love the feeling that comes along with Autumn.  It’s when school is starting back up and people seem more motivated and less aggravated by the unbearable heat and it’s just a generally great time of the year.  A few weeks ago I posted my Autumn activities list and I’m already scheduling the time to dedicate to the things I want to do to completely enjoy and appreciate the season (plus, I’m so close to beating Luigi’s Mansion which is one of my goals so HOORAY!).

1) Pumpkin Everything! – I’ve already gone one several sprees to pick up any and all Pumpkin flavored foods at my local Target.  I have yet to haul pumpkin goods from my annual Fall Trader Joe’s trip but I’m planning on going there in the coming weeks once everything is in stock.  Last year I did a comprehensive end of season review of almost everything I tried and I feel good about knowing which things I can skip this year.  I’ve been having my lunch on pumpkin spice bread every day for the past two weeks and it’s been the best thing in the world.22) Pumpkin & Apple Picking  – Last year I went to this amazing gem of a place for pumpkin and apple picking with my now fiancee Andrew and my BFF Melissa. We’re planning on heading back again this year with Andrew’s many siblings (he’s one of five!) and I cannot wait because they’re all so great<3  There’s a giant corn maze with a mystery you have to solve, homemade Apple Cider donuts that you can watch being made while you wait on the line and of course, pumpkins and apples for picking!

3) Fall Wardrobe – I adore wearing sweaters, scarves and boots and the crisp Autumn air always demands it<3  I can’t wait to break out my sweaters again and accessorize for the cooler air.  Plus, leather jackets! And I just recently reintroduced jeans into my wardrobe so I’m already foreseeing some adorable ensembles.

4) Fall Landscapes – I always feel so lucky to live close enough to Central Park that I can pop over once the leaves start changing and spend a few hours strolling around and admiring the view.  Fall is so colorful which is exactly what I crave and I love stepping through leaves on the ground in knee high boots.  This is one of my favorite photos I took of the Bow Bridge last Fall (you may recognize it from Amy & Rory’s final episode of Doctor Who!) and you can see the rest of my photos here.   I can’t wait to spend some time there with Andrew this year!5

5) PIE – This goes along with my first fall fave because Pumpkin Pie is everything! But I am not discriminatory and I love all pie in general I thought it made sense to include it on my list as it’s own category.  Autumn pies are so delicious and I cannot wait to put more Pecan Pie in my mouth.

5 Fandom Friday

And now, Megan and I are ahead of the game for October topics for a very special reason.  You may have noticed that I have a new 5 Fandom Friday graphic as my featured image and that is because my fiancee Andrew has been patiently teaching me Photoshop (despite how frustrated this n00b would get when trying to create / color all the fandom icons).  I knew the first thing I wanted to create would be fandom related and I figured, what better way to experiment than to create something new for 5 Fandom Friday?!  So in addition to the October topics which will be listed below, we’re also going to debut a 5 Fandom Friday Instagram Photo A Day Challenge for the month of October!  I wanted to post it early so that everyone would have time to take their photos and we really hope you’ll enjoy playing along this month! If everyone likes it, it may be something we continue with!  You can follow along on mine and Megan’s instagrams (we’ll be posting the graphic there too later in the week) and we’re both anxious for October 1st so we can start perusing the hashtag and see all the geeky goodness in our feeds!
