I love this time of the year!!

Fall definitely gets me into a good mood. I love this time of the football, great weather, leaves changing, the Holidays are getting closer...I mean it doesnt get much better than this. This time of year reminds me to be thankful for the small and big things in life. God creates such beauty with the leaves changing and it is hard not to think about how awesome He is. Also with the Holidays quickly approaching I get thankful for my wonderful family and friends and also for the small things.
Fall also gets me into a decorating mood. I love getting to decorate the house with fall things and then that gets me thinking about the Christmas season and I LOVE decorating for Christmas. This year we have our own house, which makes me even more excited. Below are some pics of my fall decor.

Go Vols!

Adam and I bought tickets to the Tenn vs UCLA game in Sept. I always love going to Knoxville and watching the Vols play. Since marrying Adam I have become a Tenn Volunteer fan (at least when they dont play Clemson). He is trying to convert me 100% but my blood does run Tiger orange. My dedication lies with Clemson, but I have become a Tenn fan as well. We had a blast at the game even though they lost. We had awesome seats and it was good to get to spend some quality time together.

New York with my sister.

On Labor Day weekend my sister and I took a trip to New York City. It was great to get to spend some good quality time with her on a cool trip. I know things will get hectic once little Alexis is born in Jan., so it was nice to spend time with her. We went sightseeing, shopping, and just hung out. We also went to M&M world : ). I have now been to 2 out of the 3 locations. Only one more to go, Vegas here I come, haha. For anybody that knows me you know I love M&M's. Below are only a few pics from the trip, I uploaded more on facebook so check those out too.

New Puppy!

We finally got a new puppy, Adam is so happy. I wanted to wait until we had a house with a backyard, so once we got settled in, we found our pup. His name is Rambo, and he is a Mini Schnauzer and Dachsund mix. He is the cutest puppy ever, at least I think so. We have had him now for about a month and half and he has been the best. Rambo already knows to go to the door to go outside and him and Roxie are starting to get along much better. He is definitely part of the family and we love him so much : )
