Things I Love - Fall

Things I Love...

This is my feature where I get to share something that I just love. Since you are my friends, I like sharing things I love with others. It could be anything from a new product, food, recipe, song, image, to a person and everything in between. This will be something I am completely doing on my own, without pressure or compensation from a company, author, PR/Marketing firm, friend, business owner, etc. This will just be something that makes me happy and I want to share it with you. Enjoy some love!

Today's love is.................................Fall!
I Love Fall!  It is my favorite season (with Spring close behind).

1. I love watching the changing of the leaves, the warm and sunny days with a hint of chill, and the cool nights. 

2. I love football season.  By the way, I won 2 weeks in a row with our family picks.  So, far I have $2.50 in my pocket, winning 8 games the first week and 12 the second week.  Maybe I have a new calling!!! Vegas, need my help?????

3. I love Homecoming. We had an early Homecoming at our school this year, but still it reminds me of fall. When I was growing up, I was a football cheerleader and Homecoming was the highlight of the season. I loved the pep rallys, the decorating of the school and communities, the fun dress-up days, the marching band, and of course the game. The school our kids go to also has a great Homecoming week with the dress-up days, parade, pep-rally, crowning of King and Queen, and the big game.

4. I love Pumpkins.  I love carving pumpkins and eating anything with pumpkin in it.  I stock up on the Libby's pumpin and go crazy....pumpkin bars, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin desserts, etc. 

5.  I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Starbucks started making my favorite treat early this month and I have already treated myself to 2 of them.  YUM!  I am also anticipating the arrival of Coffeemate's Pumpkin Spice Creamer.  It has yet to arrive on the shelves here, but I am patiently waiting. 

6.  I Love Bible Study Fellowship.  BSF began last Wednesday and it felt so good to be back with an amazing group of women all learning God's word together.  We are studying the Book of Acts as well as other books of the New Testament and I am already loving the study.

7.  I Love My Birthday.  Yes, my birthday is in the fall (my husband's is too) and I love celebrating it.  This year will be the last in my 30's and I will be launching a whole new page on my website dedicated to that, so stay tuned!

8.  I Love Fall TV.  I was very excited to watch some old and new shows this season.  My favorites are SURVIVOR, THE MIDDLE, DANCING WITH THE STARS, CASTLE, and I'm looking forward to checking out THE CHEW and seeing what the new TWO AND A HALF MEN is all about.

What is your favorite thing about fall?  Is it your favorite season too?
