The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

This past weekend kicked off what in my eyes is the beginning of the best time of year! Let me give you a run down of all of the wonderful things going on this time of year...

First and Foremost it's FOOTBALL SEASON!
I'm super excited that football season is here! I am always ready to put on my red and Call Those Hogs!! We have already planned the menu for our tailgate this weekend. So, now all I have to do is cook and polish up my serving pieces and we are ready to go! Woooo Pig!!!
This gives me chills! I wish I was there now!
Greatest mascot around! :)

It's finally FALL!!!
Well at least in my house it is. On Thursday (September 1) I drug out all of my fall decor and started lighting my spiced pumpkin candles! Even though it still feels and looks like Summer outside, the inside of my house will be a fall wonderland when I get through with it!!
All of these BEAUTIFUL pictures are from places in Arkansas. We aren't called The Natural State for nothin!

Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks

AKA: A little taste of Heaven!
This is my absolute favorite drink at Starbucks! It is sooooo good! It's a seasonal drink so I only have a short time to enjoy it. I miss it when it's gone and look forward to it's arrival all year! About a month ago, (yes I'm that obsessed) I asked the good ole folks at my local Starbucks when this tasty beverage would be back and I was told September 6!!! So, I impatiently counted down the days until this glorious drink made it's Fall 2011 debut! Well that day has come and gone and I am one happy girl! I have had a total of 5 since Monday( my husband got our local Starbucks to make me one a day early...he is a dear man!) ....obsessed?!?!? Yep! If you have never had one then get your butt to Starbucks and get you will be addicted!!!

My Birthday Month
Yes, you read that right! It says Birthday Month. I do not have a birthDAY, I have a birthday month.
I am aware that this is totally obnoxious, but I don't care because it's MY birthday month so celebrate I will!
Our First Wedding Anniversary
Wow! I can't believe it's almost time to celebrate our first year of marriage! Time really flies when you are having fun! October 9, 2010 seems like yesterday! What a happy day!!

"Cool Weather" Food
A big pot of warm chili is perfect for a cool/cold Fall night!
Tomato and Grilled Cheese soup perfect for lunch or dinner! YUM!
Pumpkin Bread- My Favorite!!

Apple, Pecan, and Pumpkin Pie-Oh My! I'm so ready for Thanksgiving! My goal is to make all three pies this year! I better get to the gym now!
Sweaters & Boots

I'm a total Boot Girl! I Love them! I would wear them all year round if it didn't get so dadgum HOT in Arkansas!! Don't you just LOVE these?!? I bought them in black and I can't wait to wear them!!
I think these Valentino's are so fun! I would LOVE to play with these!!!!

 AHHHHH! I'm sooooo ready to do some fall shopping!!!!!!!

So here are some of the reasons why Fall is my favorite time of year! What do y'all think? Did I leave anything out? What is your favorite time of year? I would love to hear from you!!!!
