I'm back!

I'm back! Things were a little slow towards the end of the summer without much to blog about, but thankfully fall is here. My favorite things about fall are College Football, cooler weather, camping, festivals & fairs, and all the great holidays.College football season might possibly be my favorite time of year. It used to be summer, but since I don't get a summer break anymore, that might have to change. Every Saturday I like to wake up and watch Gameday while I make breakfast. Of course, my favorite part is the end with the mascot heads. Lee Corso almost never picks my teams, but that's ok, I won't hold it against him! In our house we watch Georgia Southern (when they're on tv!), South Carolina, Florida and any SEC game. Being at the games in person and tailgating makes it even better!
Cooler weather makes it much more bearable to be outside. We love to go camping and I especially love fairs and festivals, where there is a good chance that you'll find some delicious fried food like funnel cakes or fried oreos...delish!
We also get to celebrate one of my favorite holidays during the fall-Fakesgiving! It's a tradition that started about 5 or 6 years ago at my best friend's house, when we all decided to have Thanksgiving dinner together before we went home to our families. It's the kind of event where you enjoy the food and drinks of Thanksgiving without any of the stress. It really is a ton of fun! I'm hoping to cook even more this year and include some of my new favorite recipes.
Let's hope that this fall is fabulous!
