Falling for Fall

When I heard Katie & Pink Persistence were hosting this linking, I was so excited. I have serious fall love, and I cannot wait to read everyone's posts this evening!

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!!!


  1. I love your post, lady! You hit the high notes of fall so well. I'm so excited for fall football games [and tv shows, the Blind Side and Remember the Titans are two of my faves] and fall eats. Exciting about the blog revamp!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us!

  2. I've been watching all the football shows/movies too and of course actual football - the best!! I'm loving getting some nice workouts in outside - you can't beat these cooler temperatures.

  3. Ooh I definitely want to try those cookies! Give me pumpkin everything! ;) So happy football is back and can't wait to see your new blog design! Thanks for linking up!
