What I Love About Fall

ID-10015066

There’s a lot of things I love about fall. First has to be that football is back. I know shocking that a woman would say that, but I do love me some football. My poor neighbors I’m sure can hear me as I shout at the TV when my two teams are playing. The Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. I don’t get to watch them play a lot on TV here in WV, but when I do, boy am I excited. Hubby and I do listen to the Colts every Sunday that we can’t watch them. Okay, so enough about football. Let’s get to other things, I love about fall.

Pumpkin Spice Latte! Yeah, that’s no surprise, right? They’re so good and taste of fall. I’m going to attempt to make up a recipe for this, so I’m not spending a lot of money buying them. I’m sure hubby would be happy about that.

Let’s not forget the leaves changing. Where we live in mountains it’s beautiful when they do. At times, it looks like the leaves are on fire from how bright red they get here. So pretty! The above picture is from last year.

The cool fall fair is something I love, as well. It’s time to wear hoodies again. I like live in mine during the fall weather. So comfy. Hayrides and pumpkin patches are so fun. Since I’m a romance author I think they’re romantic, and the perfect setting for a date. Or even for a first kiss in a book. Okay, so that pretty much sums up what I love about fall.

So, tell me what is your favorite thing about fall?

Big News!

I have big news to share. I sold my first sweet romance book! Actually, I sold a four book series to Sweet Cravings Publishing. I’m over the moon happy about this news. The first book is scheduled to come out sometime in Jan 2014.  Stay tuned to my blog for more details.

Here’s the book blurb. It’s unedited at the moment.

Wounded Hearts

After a bitter divorce, Shelby Johnson had rebuilt a life for her and her daughter, Hannah, while avoiding the thing she mistrusts most—men. Her resolve is tested, however, when her brother’s best friend, Mark, moves in across the street and her long-buried feelings for him return. Can she possibly open up her heart again? When someone threatens her life, she quickly realizes that her heart isn’t the only thing on the line, and she turns to the only man she feels she can trust.

Reliving everything he lost overseas, Mark Daniels goes back to his hometown to try and live a peaceful life, but instead gets caught up in Shelby’s troubles. He knows she needs someone to protect her, but can he be that man? Except, being near Shelby again is making him feel things he’d rather never feel—again. When his past comes back to haunt him in a way he never expected, he vows to protect Shelby and her daughter until his last breath.

Frozen Reese’s Cups

This yummy recipe taste just like Reese Cups but in frozen form. It’s also pretty healthy for you. It is low-carb as well, which is good for me as I’ve started eating that way. I got this recipe a long time ago from a friend.

Ingredients

2/3 cup peanut butter
4 cups cool whip light
Sugar free Hersey syrup

Place the peanut better in a bowl and 2 cups cool whip. Stir them together. Then add the other two cups of cool whip and fold it in. Place the mixture into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers or sprayed with cooking spray. I put about 2 1/2 T in each cup. Then you’ll want to squirt some syrup on top. Place the muffin in the freezer and let them get frozen. Once frozen take out and put in baggies two at a time.

I hope y’all enjoy them. What’s your favorite healthy dessert?
