Looking for Inspiration

I have a love/hate relationship with fall.   Now don't get me wrong, I think fall is wonderful with all the beautiful colors, fall crafts and great treats.  I also love picking apples, trick or treating, hayrides, football games and all the fun activities of fall.   What I don't like is the fact that fall means we have put an end to sleeping in and go  back to crazy busy schedules. (I have 3 kid in 3 different schools, all of which will have lots of homework, enough said!)  I also dont like that fall means that winter is once again going to arrive in a few short months.  I am not a fan of snow, cold and ice and where I live, we seem to have a lot of it.  Michigan winters seem to start in November, and don't end until April. I dont like to think of Halloween in Aug, and Christmas in Oct.    With that being said,  I was thinking that maybe  looking at all the great fall ideas on Pinterest, and the blogs might help me be a little more excited about the end of summer.    

I do like watching football and love to eat pizza.  I like how mixes the two.  

I also love chocolate and strawberries together.  How cute are these strawberry footballs from From Glitter to Gumdrops.

I never would have thought to paint pumpkins to look like candy corn.  There are from  has directions on how to make candy corn brownie pops.  

I do admit I really like the look of a pretty decorated porch ready for fall.   I found this picture on the  website.  Still not sure I am ready to give up my summer yet.
