6 things for my Fall!

I'm so sad I missed this link up when it went live yesterday, but hey, I suppose when you pick up everything you own and move to a new home, that's what happens! ;) Anyway! Lets get started. Fall is upon us and I'm over the moon. I've officially dusted off my booties, rearranged my scarves and am stalking Targets $1 section for the cutest glittery pumpkins I can find.

I decided instead of writing all the things I love about Fall (cause listen, we'd be here all day), I'd post a few things I want to do this season!
Throwback to last Fall. You're never to old to play in the leaves.
1. Visit a fall festival of some type. The plans for this are already in the works due to a couple free Saturday's (say what?! FREE SATURDAYS?!!?) next month, and I'm pumped. There's something so fun about finding your way out of a corn maze, and picking out pumpkins.

2. Speaking of pumpkins, I'd actually like to carve some this year! It's something I say I'll do with Caleb EVERY year, and yet it never happens. Now that we have a small deck, I'd like to USE it! I'm thinking something Disney themed?!

3. Sit by a campfire. It's one of my favorite things to do!

4. Make a crock pot potpourri...I'm eyeing this one in particular! I mean, can you even imagine how good that probably smells?!?! Perfect when having guests over!

5. Make the best s'mores ever. Last year our church put on a really cool fellowship event to kickoff Fall and everyone got to experience my amazing s'more making skills...

6. Take more personal photos. I'm so busy carrying around my DSLR capturing OTHER people's moments...I want to get better at capturing my OWN with more than just my little iPhone camera.

Like I said, I could go on and on about things I want to do this Fall, or reasons why I love it so much, but we'd probably be here all day. I'm just ready for life to slow down a bit, for the weather to get a bit cooler, and to relax and enjoy the last few months of the year to the fullest. I've also got some things up my sleeve for Halloween! Stay tuned!!

Have a great Thursday, friends!


  1. Oooh, yes to that potpourri! I have pumpkin bread in my oven right now and my house smells ahhhmazing! Cheers to a fabulous fall - thanks for linking up with us!

  2. This is random, but I feel like I'm the only one around here that considers s'mores a summer thing? It's on everyone's fall lists! I mean I love a s'more year round but we usual have a bonfire/campfire in the summer. Maybe it's just too cold in Idaho in the fall for those kind of things. Happy fall lady!

  3. Absolute best time of year! I can't wait to whip up a batch of chili and watch football with the windows open! DREAMY SATURDAY ALERT. I can't wait to see all of your personal pictures on the blog! :)

  4. Yessss to carving pumpkins! Have a carving party, invite some friends over and you can all munch on fun foods and drink festive drinks while carving pumpkins ;-)

  5. S'mores are my favorite!!! I can't wait to carve pumpkins this year. Last year Dom was just starting to get into it and put his hands in the pumpkin so I am super excited.

  6. Yay for bonfires!! Our next big bonfire/smores will be on Halloween - I'm seriously considering bringing other chocolate (like reeses) and trying that. I've heard its to die for!! :)

  7. Oh yes, crock pot potpourri is the best! I can't wait to try that recipe you shared! Hope you guys have a fantastic fall!

  8. Sitting around a campfire is the best! I wish I had a yard to have a fire pit...or a fireplace! Gah a fireplace would be amazing even if my apartment is always way too warm to actually need a fireplace.

  9. I love everything about fall! I've wanted to try a crock pot potpourri too. You'll have to let me know how yours turns out! Speaking of of my favorites is coming up this weekend. The Apple Festival!

  10. Oh my gosh, I've never heard of crock pot potpourri before. That sounds amazing and I am definitely adding that too my list. Thanks for the suggestion!

    P.S. your blog is so cute :)

  11. Love love love this post, lady! Glad oyu were able to join the party. I've heard great things about potpourri in a crock pot but have never tried it myself. Oh and gimme all the fall smores!!! Thanks so much for linking up with us.


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
