I really feel like Fall “officially” starts when the kids go back to school and we are getting SO close to that happening here! Meet the teacher night is this week for both boys, supplies are purchase, new clothes are ordered and Jackson’s backpack is all packed up and ready to go.
So is this mama anxious for school to start? Yeah, I’d say so.
Fall is by far my favorite season, and at this point in the year I’m actually even looking forward to winter (don’t remind me I said that in February). So now that things are moving along in that direction, I wanted to share a few fun things that I’m really looking forward to in the coming months!
7 Fun Fall Activities I’m Excited About
New Fall Decor // We have been doing the same thing around our house for fall decor since we moved in and this year I’m excited to change up a few things in our mudroom (a new door decoration and pillows for the bench), front porch (a giant wreath, new planters and lots of mums and heirloom pumpkins) and dining room (velvet pumpkins, natural elements & white candles).
Our Disney Trip // It’s an annual tradition that we go down to Disney for the Epcot Wine & Food Festival, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and we’ll be heading back this year. Our FastPasses are booked and so are a few dinner reservations!
The Pumpkin Farm // Last year we went to a new pumpkin farm with the boys and we all LOVED it! Except for the giant corn maze that we thought we’d be “so good at” and quit after we got lost about 3 minutes in. Truth be told, I think I’m the one that gets the most excited about stuff like this, so I can’t wait!
Crock Pot Recipes // I love my crock pot and can’t wait to get it out and start making chili and other big batch meals. Our goal is to do a little stockpile of lunch stuff in the freezer and I just got this little lunch crock which will be great for warming things up when I need to.
Football Weekends // We are a house divided with 3 teams to watch every weekend: Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Florida State. Even though most times we’re too busy to actually sit down and watch a full game, it’s nice to have it on in the background and watch while we can!
Sweater Weather // I can’t wait for things to cool down a bit and get out my new fall clothes! I’ve been doing some good shopping and I can’t wait to share some new, fun finds with you all – AND I’ll be restyling some of my summer clothes for fall. A few favorite buys so far: this Theory Jacket, these star earrings, this fringe tank and this dress.
My New Office // As I shared last week, my new home office is just a few weeks away from being installed and finished. I’m so looking forward to having a dedicated work space and a beautiful one at that! I feel so much more productive and creative when I’m at a desk with my favorite Pandora Station (the Piano Guys) going, so get ready for good stuff to come!
