The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Although it's still so hot and rainy here in FL, my favorite season is right around the corner, FALL! I was at the mall with Vincent yesterday and seeing all of the fall scents out in Bath and Body Works gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. There are so many things I love about fall, and that time of the year.  Some of them are back to school shopping, my birthday, Halloween, the comfort food, Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes and spending time with family and friends.  I always wonder when is too early to start putting my Halloween decorations up, they're usually up by mid-September.  However, the one thing that makes me love the season the most is the start of football! 

I have always been a huge football fan, and there's nothing I love more than spending all day tailgating and going to a game, or vegging-out in front of the TV watching all the top games. This year, there won't be much tailgating for me, but there will be lots of football watching.  Saturday my family went to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers open practice. While Mike grew up a Dolphins fan, I think that living in Tampa for almost 5 years now, he's a reformed Bucs fan. I'm pretty sure Vincent will grow up with the love of sports, especially football, knowing who his parents are.  

 This year's starting quarterback and FSU alum, Jameis Winston!

 This pic right here just hits me in that deep spot in my heart!  Love my two boys more than anything!

While we couldn't see much of the practice from where we was sitting, I have concerns about Jameis Winston trying to live up to his #1 draft pick and forcing the ball into tight spaces and then handing it over to the other team.  I saw him throw two interceptions while we were there.  As a Florida State Alumni, I want to see him do well, even more as a Bucs fan, since that's where the team has decided to invest their future.  I'm excited for the season to start, and see how everything works out this year.  Even if this year is as miserable as the last, I'll always be a Bucs fan, tried and true! 

What are some of your favorite things about Fall?  

Bump Update 
We're settling in here at 13 weeks, moving into the second trimester.  Time is definitely going more quickly now that I have a toddler to keep me busy.  I also feel like I am showing sooner in this pregnancy than my first.  I have heard that happens.
