I really should not attempt watching new shows. Once I start, it is like I disappear into a black hole.
I recently started watching Friday Night Lights and literally have stopped to go to the bathroom and that is basically it. It is just TOO GOOD!
Any fellow Friday Night Lights fans? It makes me crave to have that high school football season back…and then I remember that I’m a senior, and there won’t be any more high school football seasons as a high schooler fan *tear*
Football season is the best time of the year. Being a senior was the best, I was always first row in the student section, dressed in whatever crazy theme we had, screaming my face off. We broke out some giant speakers this year and would blast music in the stands and it was OUT-RAGE-OUS! Soo much fun, we would dance and cheer our little butts off even when we were losing. It makes me so sad to think of how much I’ll miss it, but then again, I have college football season to look forward to!
Speaking of football and Fall things, these pumpkin muffins are a nice little bite of Fall. I absolutely love all the flavors that go along with Fall time, but I like to enjoy them all year long! These muffins are chock-full of pumpkin and oats, super healthy and flavorful!!
