Top 5 Reasons Why I Love This Time of Year

First off, I have to say that the ultimate reason I'm in love with Fall is because of the beautiful weather!  Without the cool, crisp air that actually makes a Texan appreciate the feeling of warm sunshine... this season just wouldn't be the same. :)

Now that we've got that covered... *wink*

The colors... 
I love earth tones.  From the chocolate browns, to the dark greens, to the golden yellows and deep reds -- I love 'em all! 

  The books...
For some reason, this weather puts me in the mood to sit and read a good book outside... and our back porch is the perfect place to do it! ;) 

The jackets...
I'm cold-natured and love a good excuse to wear cute jackets, sweaters, blazers, etc. 

Denim, suade, courdoroy, fleece -- you name it, I'll probably be wearing it. :)

The coke floats?
Okay, our family doesn't typically get the chance to indulge in drinking a good coke float (or in my particular case, a Dr. Pepper float. ;)  But when we were talking the other day and realized Eliza and Samantha had NEVER drank one before, we just *had* to splurge a little bit. :) 

Hey, that was the first time we had gotten sodas in at least 4 months! 
And let me tell you... it was reeaallly gooood.


by now you're probably wondering about my "reason number five". 

SoOo, here it is...


This month (October 23, to be exact!) marks 10 years since the day I was baptized! 

(It's really weird to think that I'm old enough to say that now. lol!  10 years ago???  
I can remember the night like it was yesterday... :)

*Praise the Lord all the earth!*
