Recipe for a Happy Fall Weekend.

 --start with 1 large helping of Friday Night Lights
slide in on those cool bleachers, eat a few m&m's, and cheer loudly for your team.

 --Stir in some relaxation
find somewhere peaceful to read, admire the beautiful colors of Fall, and spend time with your loved ones.

--Include a pinch of college Football
get together with friends, watch the big game, yell a lot (especially "Roll Tide"), and don't forget to play nice with the rival team's fans.

 --Add heaping spoonful of goodness for the soul
enjoy a worship service under the changing leaves, (bonus points if you wear a neon yellow tee and volunteer to help with a church picnic), clap along to beautiful praise music, and thank God for all of your many blessings.

--Finish off with a dash of good, old-fashioned fun.
kick off your shoes and frolic with family under blue skies, feel the Autumn sunshine on your face, play made-up games, smile a lot. 

...........................................................................................
Follow this fool-proof recipe, and you're sure to have a glorious weekend.
xoxo
