Things we love about Fall...

I felt like getting a little festive and picking out a new background for the blog that is a little more suiting for the season! Fall is such a nice time of the year and there's always fun things going on too!

COOLER WEATHER...While it is still hot here in good old Alabama, it finally starts to cool off...which is so nice!

FOOTBALL SEASON... is so much fun! Speaking of which, a sweet neighbor came over last night and gave us some tickets to the Auburn game this weekend! Thanks Kelly! So we are excited to make the trip down to the plains! I also get to visit with my best friend, who is newly engaged! Congrats (again!!) Stacee:)

HALLOWEEN... is just around the corner and we have our costumes picked out already! I'll keep it a surprise for later! :)

THANKSGIVING...is steadily approaching! Looking forward to some yummy sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, and some turkey and dressing! If you love sweet potato casserole, then you'll love my Meme's recipe (very seldom did she ever have a recipe as all of her wonderful "cookin" was from her head, so I am lucky to have this one to share!):

- 4 medium sized potatoes (about 3 cups) peeled and cut-up
- 2 eggs, beaten-
1/4 c. milk

~ Boil potatoes, drain. Either mash potatoes or use a mixer on low speed. Add butter, egg, milk, vanilla, and sugar.Pour into greased casserole dish. In a separate bowl, mix together the following topping. Pour topping* over potato mixture.Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

*Topping:
