Favorite Things: Fall edition

 So like many people right now, I am SO excited for fall. I've been wearing over the knee socks like there is no tomorrow, and dreaming of the days spent inside with a book and some candles. 
I am so excited about it, that I decided a list of my favorite fall things is in order!

1. Cozy Hats
  I've been looking forward to wearing cozy knit hats for a few months now. Mostly because now that my hair is at a decent length, I can wear them without looking bald! I've always been crocheting/knitting like crazy and can't wait to make some cute hats for the cold weather. 

2. Candles
I know candles are not necessarily a seasonal thing, but I especially love them in the fall. 
I always look forward to being able to find some new scents that I love. I've been hearing a lot of things about the smores candle they have at Bath and Body Works. Doesn't that sound amazing?

3. Baking
Baking is about the only thing I can do in the kitchen that I feel good about. Sure, I can throw together a meal, but there is something about baking some fresh cookies or a cake that completely captures my heart. I'm hoping to try out some new recipes this fall, which I'm pretty sure my husband is OK with. 

4. Boots
If it were up to me, I'd wear boots every single day of the year. And luckily here in Seattle, we can get away with wearing them for a good majority of the time. I usually tend to go for tall over the knee boots (catching on to my over the knee love, yet?). This year I want to try a few different styles of boots, and perhaps some new shoes as well! The more the merrier. 

5. Coffee
Again, coffee is not something that only comes around with one season of the year. But there is something magical about drinking a big mug of coffee while being snuggled up in a blanket with a book, while your hubby is giving you a foot massage. OK, that last part is a bit of a stretch..but it sounds great, right?

6. Mr. Campbell
 OK, so he is not exactly directly related to fall. This year he totally is an excited part of mine. My dad is coming up to visit in November! He has not been up here for awhile, and I am SO excited to spend some time with him. We are going to go see They Might Be Giants, who I've been (forced) to listen to since I was a kid. OK, I love them. But I was indeed forced to listen to them despite my pleas to listen to The Backstreet Boys on car rides.
(That's my dad with one of his "kids" from Haiti.)

What are you most looking forward to this fall? I'd love to hear some of your favorite things!
