Fall Catch Up
It has been far too long since I’ve posed an update here. I wish I had an excuse, but honestly I’ve just been putting this aside a bit so I can focus on work and other projects around the house. I’m hoping to keep up a bit more regularly over the next few months, as things slow down a bit and I feel less stressed. Plus, I’ll have plenty of time off over the holidays to do all kinds of projects which will make for fun posting.
Anyway, I just thought I’d do a quick catch-up post to chronicle some stuff that I did over the fall. No major projects just some fun photos of things around the house and out and about from September through November. The next post will have more substance, I promise.
Let’s start out with the yard. We’ve had incredibly warm temps this year so all of our summer plants were going pretty strong throughout fall.
I did pick up this fall blooming clematis though for a little fall prettiness.
Our sedum bloomed like a champ.
The tree out front of our house turned a stunning color! Too bad it only lasted for a week before the leaves all dropped.
They did look pretty on the ground though.
I did a bit of fall touring with my family, too. We hit up the Apple and Pork festival.
The amazing mums.
Freshly ground corn meal.
We also hit up a pumpkin patch and apple orchard.
October is also home to my husband’s birthday. We threw a party with the them of “haunted sports” so I had to get a little creative with the decorations.
Happy Haunted Sports Birthday banners.
Ghost jocks make of tracing paper.
More ghost jocks: a football player, a baseball player, a wrestler, and a batsketball.
The birthday cheesecake!
In other fall food news, I made this salad like a million times. It is crazy healthy and really good. Go here for the recipe.
Finally, we carved pumpkins. Rob’s pumpkin was super thick. Probably explains why it was so heavy.
Mine on the left, his on the right.
I’ll end with a shot of our first snow of the season. Even though it has been 50-70 since. I love warm weather, but my allergies are really ready for it to be cold so I can stop sneezing.
