Fall = TV Shows!

I love when fall rolls around for so many different reasons...& one of those being all the TV shows!

My lovehead + dinner + a cold, crisp evening + Belle + insert show of the evening here = perfect evening in my world! :)

I normally don't watch too much TV, but I do love my shows at night! One of my friends has probably 20 shows on her DVR ready to record, but truth is I just don't have that kind of time - although I wish I did!

Alright here goes:

Monday: Dancing With the Stars & Real Housewives of Atlanta (premiere Oct 4th!)
Tuesday: DWTS Results & Biggest Loser - which I'm currently watching :)

Thursday: Greys Anatomy & Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (premiere Oct 14th!)

Sunday: Extreme Makeover & Desperate Housewives

Phew! I feel like a couch potato just listing them! :) But after a long day, we deserve it. :)

Happy Anniversary Experience Life!!!!

This Sunday was Experience Life's (my church) 3 year Anniversary!!! I've been going for about 2 1/2 years, and my life has changed ...dramatically, especially in the past year or so. I've actually, "fallen in love with the Lord" rather than just living my life as a "Christian" and constantly living in sin. Am I perfect now? Absolutely not. But, it's a great feeling to know that I have a savior who forgives me, & helps me every step of the way. I'm definitely on HIS path, not mine.

I grew up in a great Christian family. We went to church every Sunday, & my momma always reminded me to say my prayers at night. My grandpa, has the faith of unlike anyone I've ever met. He is my example of a true Christian, I'm always looking up to him for guidance & support, & I love him dearly.

Anyways, church this morning was anything beyond AMAZING. I cried throughout the entire sermon. I am SO thankful God put this church into my life 2 1/2 years ago, and going for the first time was the best thing I have EVER done for myself. I also have a few friends who started going, & love it as well. Also - something cool, and I like to brag about...........
EXPERIENCE LIFE IS THE 2nd FASTEST GROWING CHURCH IN THE NATION!!!!!!!!! The NATION people!!! Our pastor Chris, is so awesome, & is always reminding the congregation that none of the credit goes to the church, the pastors, or any of the staff, it all GOES TO JESUS!!!!! God is up to something here, and I can not wait to be a part of it!!
Our pastor Chris

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness" 1 John 1:9

Vampire was in my CITY!!!!!!!!!! Team Edward!

Team Edward anyone??????? Guess who was in Lubbock on Monday night?!?!!? You guessed right people! Robert Pattinson!!!!

Word on the street was, he had a plane layover, & rented out one of the bars next to Texas Tech called Crickets which is one of my favorite bars here. They have over 100 different beers on tap!

Here he is with 3 of the bartenders. 2 of them I know....LUCKY GIRLS!!! GO HERE to read more!
It was on perezhilton.comhttp://perezhilton.com/2010-09-07-let-r-patz-get-drunk-in-peace first thing Tuesday morning! I just think its pretty crazy that a HUGE celebrity was in little ole Lubbock, Texas. One of my friends drove by, and there were girls EVERYWHERE! Ha!

Another one of my friends was IN THE BAR (before they kicked everyone out).......AND.....WAS SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO HIM and didn't.even.know.it. She said she thought it was him, but then thought, YA RIGHT. So, she left. HA!!

Top 2 Tuesday

Its Top 2: Favorite things about Fall over at Taylors! :)

My question is, how are we supposed to only choose TWO?! Haha. I love everything about fall, but here are 2 of my favorite.

1. Fall Nights.
Ahhh the smell, the light, the sunsets....everything is just better in FALL. Looking at all the trees turn to orange, my puppy dog running around bein' all happy - because she's not sweating her furry little butt off like in the summertime heat. etc etc. I could go on & on & on......

We have the cutest little corn maize in our city, and it's only open September - end of November. Now, to say its a BLAST would be a complete lie because, well, in the 4 years I've lived here I have never done it. Sad I know. BUT...we have BIG plans to do it this fall season! SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!! :):):)

How cute is this?!?!

Happy Fall!

Saturday Morning Sweetness

Look what I woke up to this morning:

What I want now...

Another one of these:

A malti-poo.
And I would just LOVE to name her DIXIE. Yep, Dixie. Dixie & Belle....so cute.
Here is MY little Bellie when she was just a WEE PUP!
Can you find her?! She has the white little face... hehe, so cute.
2 months old with her Daddy.
 Only problem is...Belle (being the little angel she is) wants nothing to do with other dogs. She is SPOILED ROTTEN, and unlike any other dog. She gets very jealous when I hold other puppies, and won't look at my for probably an hour after. She is definitely a pouter.

Well, guess what Bellie-Belle?? That's just too bad because guess what mommy is asking for, for her birthday?? That's right - a sister for YOU, and a white bundle for our family to enjoy. :)
