Fall To-Do


Today is the day!  Our fall link up is here and I hope you'll join us.

To kick off this fresh, new season, I thought I would share my fall to-do's.  I'm nothing if not a list person (I weirdly love crossing things off of them) and after making one this past summer, I found that it really encouraged me to get out and do all of the fun summer things I love to do.  So, that's what we're doing again this fall!  These are all pretty quintessential autumn activities, but they're some of my favorites and I can't wait to get started on them. 

+Cider Mill
This one is on our weekend agenda!  So excited for cider donuts - that's what it's all about.  The apples, cider are great and all... but give me the donuts.

+Football Games
We've got quite a few college home games coming up - including Homecoming that everyone will be visiting for - and I'd like to attend a local high school football game.

+Carve Pumpkins & Scary Movies
Last October 31st, we carved pumpkins, passed out candy, and watched The Silence of the Lambs.  That was the night before we brought Brady home :)  I want a repeat this year!

+Decorate Front Porch
With our pumpkins, lots of mums and whatever else cute crap I can find at Hobby Lobby ;)

+Nature Hikes
Mid October is when the leaves really begin to change here in Michigan.  We have so many nature trails near us so I really want to get out and take advantage of them to check out the pretty colors.

+Apple Cobbler & Pumpkin Bread
Two of my favorite fall treats!  I've made them both before, but I really want to perfect the recipes this year.

+Farmers Market
We went a whopping three times this entire summer since we were never home :(  I'd like to make up for that with lots of trips this fall.

+Guest Bathroom Updates
This isn't your typical fall activity, but we have one bathroom in our house that hasn't been touched at all.  It needs paint and a few updates and I'd love to get it done before Homecoming weekend.

What are you looking forward to most about fall?  Let me know and be sure to link up your fall themed posts below!  Happy Wednesday!

  3. I moved to northern Michigan about a year ago, and it was a little hard for me to get excited for fall a few weeks ago. I was still hanging on reallllllly hard to summer and living at the beach. But, I can't say no this crisp air. Traverse City is beautiful in September!

  10. I am loving all of these fall posts today!! I'm so excited for farmers markets, too! They're open all summer in Austin, but it's way too hot and I don't enjoy going. I can't wait for the weather to cool off here so I can start going on Saturday mornings!

  12. I like this list! One of my goals is to get to a high school football game (besides the nephew's). Dallas Carter is one of our schools and I've heard that's a cool experience! (Played against Permian in the "real" Friday night lights!!)

  17. I don't normally decorate my front porch - mainly because we live in the country & no one sees it anyways except for deer or coyotes :) - but I really am wanting to do that this year since Ricky cleaned up our yard & landscape this year.

  24. Let's see... football, cider mill & a color tour! I'm in Michigan and it's always great to go up North for a "color tour". It's just gorgeous when all the leaves start to change up there! I just saw this post now, but I'll definitely join in next week :)

  35. Can I just say yes to everything? I can't get enough of college games but I really want to try to get to a high school game this year too - we can always hear the band and cheering from our house on Friday nights so it would be fun to get to.

  41. What a great list! Hope you can make it to the farmers market more this Fall and nature hikes are such a good idea. It's an obvious one, but one we don't think of as an option very often. Thanks for hosting! Am following you via GFC and Bloglovin'.

  43. LOVE FALL! I want to start hiking, I have never been, I do wish it was feeling like FALL where I live... Unfortunately it's still 97 degrees and doesn't look like it's cooling down any time soon! Le sigh...
