The Time of the Year Where I Get Giddy

If you've known me for very long, you know my obsession with Fall.  I LOVE FALL!  I practically count down the days until its here... especially since it comes after our ridiculous Texas Summers (yuckkkk!).  I love the weather, I love the smells, I love the tastes... basically just everything about Fall.  We've had a few days of cooler weather over the past few weeks, but I cannot wait till even the 80's are out of the picture!  Today I am on the verge of being slightly giddy because it's October 1st and all things Fall are coming out of the woodworks!

- It was 65degrees this morning when we woke up... we did our Bible reading on the back deck!
- Last nite, as I was shopping for groceries, I saw Coffee Mate Pumpkin Spice was available AND on sale - heck yes, my coffee was amazing this morning!
Pumpkin Spice & Peppermint Mocha = heaven!
- I got the giant tub of Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving decor out of the closet (granted it was heavier than I expected and I dropped the whole tub off the top shelf down on to the junk below, thankfully it was soft junk and nothing was destroyed, whew!).  I put out all the fun things out that are covered in pumpkins and leaves - and my favorite wooden sign that reads "A Harvest of Blessings."  There's just something about seeing that sign every year that makes me so darn happy!
- Preston and I shared a delicious, juicy Honeycrisp apple after lunch... those things are amazing (and only available around this time of year)!
Nomz!
- And this has nothing to do with Fall really, but the Fedex guy dropped off my brand new SmartPower Blender (which I received for FREE from the Hipster Group, OMG, thank you!).  I was so excited to take that stuff out of the box, wash it and puree the rest of the apple Preston and I were in the middle of sharing to make baby food for Callen.  Oh man, so amazing!
Fall decor & my new blender/chopper = Yay!
 - I'm also giddy because this time next week, Michael, me and the boys will be on our way to a ranch for a weekend vacation.  I am so excited to have a little getaway, especially at this time of the year.  It cannot come soon enough!
- And there is talk of a trip to the zoo and the Texas State Fair!

Oh heck yes, I love me some Fall!

Fall means warmer weather and thunderstorms with a dose of double rainbows.
