a few favorites...

I've noticed that a lot of people are blogging about things that make them happy--I'm totally convinced that it's the 60 degree weather that's got everybody (including me!) smiling!
When I think about things that make me happy, a few things come to mind:

1. FALL! I just love the month of October. Wouldn't you agree that it has a completely different feel than September? I know I, for one, did not shed a tear when I turned my calendar from September to October. Not one single tear.

2. MSU football (duh)! I love tailgating, being with friends, and most of all, watching an MSU victory!

3. Being with both of my boys at the same time! I enjoyed loved spending time with them both last weekend. Such honeys! What a blessed aunt I am!

4. Candy corn...(though I haven't had any yet!). I'm saving up for the candy corn-m&m-golden graham-peanut mix I plan on "making" for Bunko next weekend! Heavenly? I think so.

5. I'm also quite fond of dark "fallish" nail polishes! Last fall, I purchased OPI's Suzi Skis on the Pyrenes, which I quickly became obsessed with. HOWEVER, when I excitedly went to put it on this fall, it was gone. Yep. It just disappeared. I'm convinced that someone broke into my house and stole it. I guess I'll have to fork over another $7 for another bottle of it! BUMMER.

6. SOUP TIME! I'm in the process of making some yummy taco soup, which I plan on eating this whole entire week. It just makes eating in the cafeteria with 25 7-year-olds so much more exciting!

What are some things you love right now?

Drew's aunt gave me a bag of the caramel candy corn last Sunday. I ate the whole bag in 4 days. Embarrassed I'm admitting that, but I love it. I ate so much of it last year it made me sick! Happy Fall!

My nails are OPI "You don't know Jacque" and I am pretty sure it is THE best color for fall! It's brown, but kind of a putty grey brown. I LOVE IT!
