Fall into love

Fall is my favorite time of year. And I truly miss falls in New England. The crisp smell in the air, the cool nights, the brilliant reds, yellows and oranges of the leaves. Fall is my season. It is the reason why I got married in the fall.

While fall in the Mid-Atlantic is no where near the same as those I grew up with, one thing that brings me back is a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. The sweet smell of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg transport me back to my outh, playing the huge leaf piles Dad used to rake up in the lawn.

I had my first pumpkin spice latte the other day. It was a tall, decaf, skim with no whip and it was worth all the calories. ;)

I can't wait until the gingerbread and peppermint mocha lattes come out around Thanksgiving. Shopping the day after Thanksgiving isn't the same without one.

(Can you tell that I'm caffeine deprived in my current state???)

Real Men Wear Orange

Or so I'm told.

This past weekend, Micah and I headed up to Syracuse for Micah's ten year college reunion. After spending about six hours in the car, we finally arrived and met up with Kristen and Jonathan Goldberg for a drink before heading out to dinner.

The next day, Micah, Kristen and Jonathan took me on a tour of every place on campus they used to hang out. We stopped by Marshall Street, which is like the main hangout for all college students to purchases Syracuse gear for Baby Gelman. (Don't worry KT, I'm sure she will have more UNH gear than anything else!) We even purchased a "Real Kids Wear Orange" tee shirt. I can't wait to get a picture of Baby Gelman and Micah in their shirts together.

That afternoon we went to see Syracuse play Northeastern in football. I, briefly, told everyone that I was going to cheer for NU since they are in the same conference as UNH, but after a few plays, I quickly realized that neither team was worth cheering for. :) Syracuse ended up winning, their first win in 11 months.

After a brief nap we headed out to a restaurant in Armory Square, BC. I was all set to write my review, however, about 3am on Sunday morning. I woke up with a horrible stomachache and ended up spending the next few hours getting sick in the bathroom. Part of me believes that it may have been food poisoning, while other part thinks it might have been a virus. (Micah had gotten sick just a few nights earlier. So it very well could have been a virus.) So I'm forgoing the review for the moment. (The food did taste good going in, but not so good going out.)

We ended home Sunday morning, only after a short stop at Wegmans for breakfast.

And lastly, so for the lack of updates on this blog. Most of my life is being taken up by the impending arrival of Baby Gelman, so I've been posting on the other blog. I have a feeling after Baby Gelman is born, I'll combine the two because it just way to hard to keep two blogs updated in a timely manner. So if you are looking for me, check over there.

A change of scenery

Just in time for fall, I decided to change the background of my blog. Give you all something new to look like.

My review of the new 90210 can be wrapped up in one word: disappointing.

I guess I wanted it to be more like the original show. I wanted to have Donna, David, Brandon, Brenda, Andrea, Kelly, Steve and Dylan back. But they weren't there. (And what is up with Kelly and Brenda back being friends again?)

I'll give the show a couple more weeks, but if it doesn't get better, I'm cutting it loose. There is way too many shows on tv to watch.

Like Project Runway and America's Next Top Model, which are both new tonight. Welcome back fall!
