Fall back.

It rained a couple of days this last week. Temps dropped into the 60’s at night, 80’s during the day, clock keeps ticking, and guess what? It’s starting to feel like FALL.

Since I was a kiddo this change in season was probably my most favorite. It meant back to school (translates to new clothes and shoes), dove season (I know, I know), football, and the beginning of the most amazing months of the year. Halloween translates to almost Thankgiving, Thanksgiving translates to almost Christmas season and Christmas just means AWESOME.

My whole disposition changes, I dream of things like pumpkin bread, holiday arts & crafts, costumes, cheesy things like “maybe I should make a “fall-like” wreath for the door.” I go in clean out mode, organize the crap out of my house, spend hours browsing through recipes because clearly the fall means getting my cook on. We put JETS jersey’s on every Sunday, hit ballet class every Saturday, and can’t wait to put on The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown….


---Soak it up folks, fall back,  make a spiced latte, and hope it takes its time.

Be back soon,



Are you ready for some football?!?!?

For the 10 of you that follow me that are not family or friends I need to let you in on a little secret.

My brother is a bad ass.
He plays DII football for Abilene Christian University, and they too, are bad ass. Last night they played Northwest Missouri, ranked #2 in the nation, Abilene ranks #5,and they beat them 19 – 14. What this means in my household:

Purple ACU t-shirt on.
Lots of cursing and then cheering.
A cold beer.
Jumping on and off the couch.
More cold beer.
More cursing, following by more cheering.
Excessive text messaging.
Hitting the pillow and CRASHing from all the suspense.

I love football season and I’m my brothers biggest fan. For those of you DYING to start following ACU, he’s #29.
