The air is crisp, the leaves are colourful & scarves have been pulled out! Fall is here & I couldn't be more excited for boot & sweater season. Fall is definitely in the running for my favourite season. It's just so hard to pick between fall & summer; they go 50-50.
Anyways, I've pulled together 10 things everyone should be doing this fall with their spare time. Take a peak & let me know what is on the top of your list!
1 - SALADS IN A JAR
Seems pretty basic, but have you done it yet? I've talked about doing it forever & I think I've maybe done it once. So I'm definitely putting this on my list of to do's this fall.
2 - MAKE SOUP
Soup is probably my favourite food...besides pizza. I'm obsessed with it & I can eat it almost all year round, but in fall it's my absolute favourite meal to have. Making soup can be quite easy & healthy! That's a great thing about it. You can throw in all the vegetables in your fridge & make up a delicious concoction. I stumbled across an apple cheddar soup over at our friend Amanda's blog & it sounds so yummy. I will be making this soup hands down! Click the photo for the recipe.
3 - GO TO A PUMPKIN PATCH
If you buy your pumpkins at a grocery store shame on you! Head a bit to the country & pick your own. You'd be surprised at how many colours & different sizes are out there, plus all the other fun activities they have at most farms for the young & old.
4 - GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR PUMPKIN
Sure putting a silly or scary face on your pumpkin is fun, but why not try something different this year? Michelle & I like to mix things up every year! See below last years fun take on decorating.
5 - APPLE PICKING
My boyfriend & I went apple picking this year already! Trust me on this one, you want to go. The apples are so juicy & flavourful. We even ended up baking a pie. My first pie! I think it was a big success...so add that to the list too!
6 - FALL FIRE
There's nothing like a hot summer fire, but have you had a fall fire yet? Go get toasty by a fire outside and indulge in some treats too! Time to bring out those cozy sweaters & comfy socks. Invite some friends/family over to have a fun night in the backyard.
7 - GET CRAFTY
With the winter months approaching, set up shop inside. Collect all your summer photos & start creating a scrapbook. I have a weakness for scrapbooks! Invite some friends over & do it together. Don't forget the wine. :)
8 - TRY SOMETHING NEW
Why don't you learn something new this fall? Look into classes in your area & see what interests you. Whether it's a new workout class or something to enhance your education, it'll be fun! I've always wanted to learn the craft of calligraphy. Click the photo below for a helpful website on the basics of calligraphy.
9 - MAKE SWEET POTATO FRIES
These are just too good to be true. Simple, yummy & not bad for you. Click the photo for a recipe. Don't forget to add your favourite spices or some herbs for a fresh taste!
10 - HOMEMADE BATH BOMBS
The best for last. Now that it's cold, bath time is here! I love my baths & I LOVE adding bath bombs. They always make your bath smell divine & leave my skin silky smooth, plus the ones with sparkles always make me feel like a kid at heart. The only downside to bath bombs are that they can get pricey! So why not try & make homemade ones? Click the photo to see how you can make your own.
