Fall and Football

So it's the end of summer, which is a little sad because I love the monsoon, though we got plenty of storms last week as a proper big goodbye. I went with a few friends down to the vineyards in Sonoita for an end of summer festival. It was pretty fantastic to be drinking wine on the covered porch of one of the vineyards as a massive storm came through. So cheers to you summer!
However it is now fall which happens to be my favorite time of year. There's cooler weather, boots, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween and lets not forget football! Now before the tailgating season started Truman and myself played/helped in the Red Army Golf Tournament that raises money for all the tailgating costs each year. We had a lot of fun! I mean I was running the hole with beer pong with a friend after all. How can you not have fun watching all the guys play beer pong with g-strings on and then trying to play golf?! Pretty amazing! Then there was our first tailgate and the tailgate brought its friend by the name of Thunderstorms :-) Well it may have rained the entire tailgate but that didn't stop us from hanging out, grilling and all around enjoying ourselves. That's what real fans do. We were then promptly off to attend two weddings in the same weekend which was tiring but fun.
Now during all this time you know I'm crafting and preparing for the scrapbook retreat the first weekend of October. I signed up for four new swaps because I'm just that kind of crazy :-) A few are pocket letters ones so as to feed my obsession with this new art form. The others are secret sister swaps. I'll let you know how that goes but for the time being here are some pictures of the projects I've made and received lately. Enjoy fall and football season!
