fall is here….

i love love love fall.  i don’t know if it’s that i look way better in a cute sweater and jeans than i do in a swimsuit or if it just reminds me of being a kid…but either way the feeling of stepping outside and not sucking in hot air and the smell of b.o. makes my life WAY happier.

prior to loving fall i had always loved winter the most….i still at times feel more free and light in the winter….but the way the trees look in the fall is so perfect!  not to mention the fact that most of my favorite shows are brand new and the fall fashion is so fun and cute. 

with all of this being said i have a new not so fun revelation about fall…..

the obsession with football and the crazy’s that go with it.

first off let me start by saying that who knew there were SO many people, channels, lives, souls, etc. committed to one sport.  i mean don’t get me wrong i like football and i will watch it if i know a team playing….but for an entire season to be skipped for a sport that doesn’t feel worthy of it is just a shame.  i want to scream to all the men and women stuck in their houses, bars, and elsewhere…

“GET OUT OF THE HOUSE IT’S GORGEOUS OUTSIDE! Put the remote down, put the queso in the fridge, and do something else…but before you go do that something else TAKE THE DAMN JERSEY OFF!!!!” 

oh the jersey’s )

i really have become aware of this issue more so because of my living situation as it is with Ben.  not only do we get the regular broad casted football games on basic channels but we (or i should say HE) has purchased something called “Sunday Ticket”….it’s a package through Direct TV that basically makes it impossible to have contact with him every sunday for an entire season. 

the package really should come with a disclaimer to woman that reads:  “In the event that your husband/boyfriend becomes incoherent, obsessive compulsive with hot wings, thinks he is in fact playing in his fantasy league, thinks he is in fact friends with these football players, etc. please contact a shrink immediately….or just hold out until the season is over”

in the light discussions ben and i have had about weddings and marriage…mainly because i go to so many weddings….i made it clear one day that i want to get married in the fall as it is my very favorite season….he was appauled…taken back…gasping for air at the thought of having a wedding on a saturday when college football was on or on a sunday when the nfl was on.  seriously?  am i asking too much to want to committ my life to someone during the season i like….i mean it’s only one of the most important days of my life…excuse me if i didn’t check with the coaches first to put some games on hold.  crazy people!

don’t get me wrong I love my sunday’s without ben (love you babe)….cleaning, brunch with the girls, hanging out at the Kerry Lane Sorority House, going on walks….it’s all so great when it’s fall….and i’m probably doing it in one of my favorite fall cardigans and loving every minute of it!

Blogging Now…..

I love love love to read blogs and keep up with friends and family…and in the case of the blogs of people I don’t know but read anyway….I feel like I know them…so that’s good enough, right?

So I thought…hmmm…I bet people would love to read about my life as well….right?!? For those of you rolling your eyes and laughing (Brooke and Alex) STOP!    

So lets get caught up on my life and where I am now!  I live with my boyfriend Benjamin in Oklahoma City.  We have two dogs, Reggie and Deuce.  They are bassett hounds and they are the cutest things ever!  TEST RUN for children….I would say I have at least made a 86% on that test.  I should appologize now to my unborn children for making a B on that test…I’ve got some stuff to work on 🙂 Good thing I have some time!  Ben and I have been together for a year (yesterday) and have lived together for about 4.5 months.  So it’s still new but it feels like we’ve known eachother for ever.  We laugh all the time and I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time right now!  

So some of the real reasons I wanted to start blogging:

I think it will be fun to put pictures of blank walls in my house on the blog and have people give me ideas.  Or ideas about gifts for people.  Or advice on love and family and life.  I don’t know….I think (and know for some people) lots of people want to give and take when it comes to ideas and advice even if you don’t know the person, known them your whole life, or just met.  I know it’s fun for me…so sure I’ll give this a shot! 
Hope to post some again really soon but for now take a look at my first pics.  Nice to meet you and see you again soon!
