    Meanwhile in AmperLand, we:

    + Window shopped across Athens.+ Explained who Ed Sheeran is.+ Found the perfect pumpkin.+ Got overly ambitious about pumpkin carving. + Learned Dont is about Ellie Goulding. + Spent too much time on Pinterest looking for

    inspiration.+ Found the five Athens must-haves for fall.+ Devoured pumpkin apple muffins.+ Started hating all our clothes.+ Tucked away the summer shorts.+ Dusted off our jeans.+ Broke out the flannel.+ Became even more caffeine dependent.+ Went to Oktoberfest.+ Learned the differences between Oxfords and

    loafers.+ Invented an Ampersand hand sign. + Danced the Wild Rumpus in full costume. + Spent 16 hours documenting the The Georgia

    National Fair in Middle Georgia.+ Labored through midterms. + Did lots of basic white girl things a la pumpkin.+ Semi-survived midterms. + Spotted Alton Brown in town.+ Attended the worlds largest outdoor cocktail party. + Attempted to define the word basic.+ Watched too many Halloween movies.+ Bought and ate more candy corn than humanly safe.+ Visited Atlantas High Museum of Art.+ Were consistently confused by Georgia weather.
