Besides apples, pumpkins, cozy sweaters and lots of pumpkin spice lattes, the season of fall brings in something else. Something that I don’t like, but the hubster absolutely loves.

That’s right, the hubster is a huge Chicago Bears fan, even though they’re not doing so well this season (or so I’ve heard).
Actually, the hubster is a big sports fan in general. You may remember me mentioning a while back that I think he missed his calling in life to go into some field of sports. He has such a vast knowledge of basketball, baseball, football and hockey, that he always amazes me with how much he knows.
