My Top Ten List--Fall Edition

TOP 10

10.  Routine--No more lazy days of summer.  Every day has a purpose---school, work, chores, homework....I grumble, but the routine really is a good thing.  I need to just go with it, take advantage of it.

9.    Sweaters and boots--And scarves and gloves and jeans....I love dressing for fall weather!

8.    Apples--Honeycrisp is my favorite variety.  Yum.  If you think you don't like apples, try a honeycrisp.  Seriously.

7.    Football--Brings back fond memories of football pool sheets and Sundays in front of the television with the gang; rooting for the Cowboys and traveling to Texas for Thanksgiving games.  (Go Cowboys!)

6.    Halloween--How can you not look forward to the costumes and the candy when you have a house full of kids?  I wonder what type of costumes I'll be putting together this year...

5.    Backyard fire pit--Hot dogs, s'mores, and happy kids right on the patio.

4.    Pumpkins--In the field, on the porch, in a can, in a muffin, in a latte (with spice)....even the color grabs me.

3.    Thanksgiving--Food, family, food, holiday, food...did I mention the food?  So many great recipes that you only see at Thanksgiving.

2.    Cooler temperatures--It's just crisp enough for a kick, but warm enough to enjoy the outdoors.  The cooler weather makes for great birthdays, too.  The majority of our family celebrates a birthday during this season.  (Notice how I sorta doubled up on this one?  It's supposed to be a "TOP 10", not a "TOP 11" and I love our Fall birthdays.  I couldn't leave them out...)

And #1....

Pretty colors--Brilliant blues, shocking oranges, rich reds, bright greens, and punches of yellow...my favorite palette.  

Sounds pretty all-American, doesn't it?

I guess I'm just a simple girl at heart.  :o)

Wouldn't it be great if Fall lasted about 6 months?

Too bad...
