The beginning of Fall starts September 22nd so what is your favorite thing about fall? What about activities?

I'm leaving tomorrow for Chicago and will be gone until Sunday but on Saturday we are hopefully going Apple Picking. This was a big fall activity for my family when I was a kid and I can't wait to share this with my girls. As well having Pumpkin Spice Latte's (they're my favorite and i've gotten many decaf ones over the past few weeks) at Starbucks definitely puts me in the mood for warm clothes and fall leaves!

There's a family farm a few miles from my house where they do a big harvest festival every year. It's so fun. They have a huge pumpkin patch, a corn maze, a farmer's market and a big open area with giant slides, bounce houses, etc. It's so fun. It's THE fall tradition I get excited for every year.

Apple picking is at the top of my list. Then we eat the apples, and I make Dutch apple pie, applesauce, and apple butter. And let's not forget the apple cider donuts - those are the best!! Mmmmm!

And then I love carving pumpkins and making roasted pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin cookies are also a big favorite at my house.

Most importantly, I am looking forward to "jeans and sweatshirt" weather, even though I might not be able to wear most of my "normal" stuff.

We love Halloween!! We always have a party and I love to dress up! I haven't decided what to be this year, the bump might get in the way. I'll have to be creative! Reading all your posts makes me ready for fall, except it will be warm here for awhile. I am craving that pumpkin spice latte!!

Some apple cider is not pasteurized. You can buy pasteurized cider too though.

I Fall

my SO's birthday is on Monday, my birthday is in a few weeks ... it will be 2nd trimester time in a few weeks ...

We carve pumpkins every year and then we roast the seeds, they are sooooo yummy. I love all the decorations and the foliage ... there is a state park about an hour away from us that we go to Columbus Day Weekend for a huge craft show ... we more go to look at the foilage because it's just beautiful, with the changing leaves and the oranges and yellow hues, it's beautiful.

I am most excited about the weather cooling off. I can't wait to put on the cozy sheets and for the air conditioner to be turned off. Even though the weather will be cooler outside, I will be much warmer inside!!!

I had my first pumpkin spice latte last week and it totally set me in the mood for fall. I'm ready to do some baking and enjoy the season.

to pretty much what everyone said. What's not to love?

I love everything. The cooler weather, apple picking, the festivals, the decorating, and the holidays that follow along.

Love fall I'm soo excited to break out my sweaters and hoodies. I'm trying to talk my DH into carving pumpkins this year since we have a front porch now. Though I might just get my SILs and niece and nephew over to do it.

I've had the windows open the last few days its been so nice to turn the air off

Mostly I just love the cooler weather, and the excitement in the air. There always seems to be so much going on in the fall!
