AR and I actually make a bucket list each season of things to check off.... okay, I make a bucket list and AR throws out some suggestions. I think it keeps us from feeling like the season just flew by. Here are a few things I am looking forward to:
- fall baking treats-I made these muffins last week and will be sharing the recipe soon. I also tried these chocolate chip pumpkin cookies on Saturday night. We had friends over to watch football and they ate almost my entire batch! So so good!
- football-Obviously, this brings me to football. Because of my school schedule, I doubt AR and I will make it to an LSU game this year, which is heartbreaking. But I am still planning on some fun football watching at home! [PSA I did not attend LSU. I married into it. ;) ]
-football movies-I always have to watch my football movies during football season. Blind Side and Remember the Titans are my two favorites!
-pumpkin carving-We carve pumpkins every year and have become a bit competitive about it. We try to plan out our designs way in advance and don't show each other until we finish. I can't wait for this year... I have a really good idea for my pumpkin!
-hot drinks-Cider, cocoa, coffee... you name it, I will drink it. Hot chocolate is on my grocery list for this weekend because I think it is finally "fall" enough to make.
- blog changes-I've been working with the ladies at Designer Blogs for some revamping of the blog. Fall is the perfect time for new beginnings, right? Stay tuned for more information, but I am so excited!!!
-fall workouts-Down here, out workouts move outside in the fall. To be honest, outdoor running in August can be pretty gross. I am excited for evening runs in the cooler air, weekend hikes, and outdoor picnics. We have a day trip planned this weekend to go hiking and have a picnic. Any it looks like the weather may be under 73*! #fallinthesouth
What are you looking forward to this fall? Any must-make recipes that feel like fall to you?
P.S. Thanks for the sweet comments on my wedding photo sneak peak. More coming soon!!!
