Fall Is Upon Us

Yesterday was the first official rain of the season.
And my car got a free wash..woo!!!! ;)
Fall is here. The weather is changing.
I remember last fall/winter being in the freezing cold of Texas.
Now, this year we are home...and get to experience the lovely, gorgeous California fall/winter.
The 70 plus degree weather 80% of the time :)

Some things I love about this season are:
I love the smell of desserts baking. Eating them is of course even better. I love to bake, but my sisters actually are masters at baking. Everything they bake is a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!
I made hubby Paula's Pumpkin Cheesecake last year. He loved it. He is requesting it again..although this time, he is requesting a little more pumpkin be added. He is truly addicted to pumpkin.
I want to try some new recipes this year, I don't plan on indulging too much, but I want a little taste.

Making soups
I never used to like soup. But once momma made Chicken Tortilla Soup, I fell in love!!
I would eat it even on the hottest day of the year. It is so delicious.
I want to try some others, so if anyone has suggestions feel free to pass them on.
 I would love to get the recipe for Potato Soup from The Outback.
Seriously, it is wonderful.
And umm what is hot soup without cornbread and tons of butter and honey?!?!
Cuddling on the couch with my lovie.
Best thing ever!!!
I love cuddling with Tony.
Laying on the couch falling asleep watching movies.

Drinking lots of warm espresso or coffee drinks
No explanations needed :)

Making my birthday list
I am turning 28 this year.
Holy smokes!!! Heart attack.
Sometimes I feel like I haven't accomplished much in years.
Lots of things have happened, but I sometimes feel as I have failed.
Anyways...I love making my birthday list :) :)

Changing up my clothes
If I had money, I would love to buy a new fall wardrobe.
Boots, scarfs, long sleeves...

What do you all love about fall?

Fall is my favorite season and this is pretty much my favorite month! The food, clothes, smells...all of it is absolute perfection.

Made my first pot of chili this past weekend and it was delightful!

My birthday is 23 days away and you better believe I remind my husband daily :)

I love making soup! It's finally cooled down enough so I feel like I can. It's been cloudy up north all week but not very rainy. I know that will come in time!
