Friday Five: Labor Day

This past weekend I was hosting my parents for the long weekend, so I skipped out on my Friday Five (not on purpose, though, promise).  But I did want to post a Friday Five that I am excited about:  things in September that I'm looking forward to!

  1. College football!  Yes, I know I've been sounding like a broken record with this lately, but I love college football.  My team is the Auburn Tigers, and this weekend they won against Arkansas State 52-26.  We cooked steaks, grilled vegetables, steamed corn, and baked homemade bread for the 6:00 PM game.  It was the best way to start off the season; I also initiated it with a Sam Adams' Octoberfest in hand.  It was a great day, and I'm looking forward to a great year!  
  2. The Office Season 6 DVD comes out tomorrow.  We started a Netflix account a few months ago, so I got caught up on all the episodes from Seasons 1-5.  Season 6 has been waiting in my que for several months and I can't wait to get caught up before Season 7 (goodbye, Michael Scott *sniff*). 
  3. We'll be leaving for a week-long beach vacation this week.  I've got some great guest posts coming up while I'm away.  And I'm sure I'll have plenty of blog-friendly stories from our trip.  It seems we can never go on a vacation without a story brought back with us. 
  4. The fall season officially starts this month, but there's already been a scent in the air of the cooler, crisp weather.  I can already see some trees in our yard where the leaves are turning in a slight red hue.  And the stores already have Halloween decorations out, which means we get to give out candy in our new neighborhood.  
  5. Finally, and kind of related to #4, I can't wait to use our new fireplace.  One of the reasons we bought our new house was for the fireplace.  It's a wood-burning, stone fireplace with a gorgeous mantle.  It will be the best day of my life when we have a fire in the fireplace, chili in the crockpot, and a hot chocolate in my hand.  I love this time of year!  

Welcome to September and the best time of the year!

    1. I'm a Penn State fan myself. Hoping for a win this weekend against 'Bama, but honestly not expecting it. Have a great vacation!
