Fall To-Do List

Seeing all the fall to-do lists on blogs and FB, the hubs and I were inspired to make our own list. We always talk about what we want to do, but life usually takes over and the frivolous stuff gets put to the back burner for "next year". Not this year baby! We are gonna be on it!

Apple Picking
I found this awesome place near our home, Oak Glen, that I can't wait to check out! I've wanted to go there for two years now and this year is the winner! Not only do you get to pick apples, you also get to make apple cider, one of my faves! Plus, they have all kinds of apple goodies to sample and buy. Oh, I'm so excited!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch 
Last year the hubs and I went to our alma mater's pumpkin patch and had a great time (see the post here- we also visited the bug fair) and plan to revisit the festival again this year.

Pumpkin Carving & Baking the Seeds
Pumpkin carving can be so hard, it amazes me what skill some people have with it. Last year, the hubs and I carved our own from the above pumpkin patch trip and we saved all the seeds to bake...and never baked them! What a shame! This year will be different though!

Family Photo
I love having photos taken that we can hang and use for projects. Even though we don't have children yet, I'd like for us to take pictures every year. 

Weekend Getaway
I've been pretty conservative with taking days off work and now I have two weeks to still schedule! Time for a getaway if you ask me! Matt and I were thinking of just going somewhere close by like a camping trip or back to Palm Springs

Visit the Beach 
Matt and I live in CA and hardly ever go to the beach. We'd like to take a day and just walk around, eat, and enjoy the view. 

What are some of your fall goals? Are we missing anything on ours?

These sound like great goals!

These sound like perfect Fall things to do! I love them all!!

Pamela said...

Please tell us all about apple picking after you go! I've been eying Oak Glen but it's far enough from me that I need to know it's worth it first. :-)

Patrick and I are getting our yearly family photo taken this Thursday. I think it is a good tradition, especially because I wish my parents had more pictures of their "before kids" life. Making a Fall to-do list is a good idea. I'm stealing it :)

I feel like as cute as you 2 love birds are, it is imperative that you take love bird pictures together until the little bambinos come!! ;)

Carolyn said...

Such a great list! It is hard to just get out and do things, isn't it? When you go to the beach I will make an appearance. Haha. ;)

I love apple cider and baked pumpkin seeds too! And taking a family pic is a MUST!!

Great list! Mine is to carve a pumpkin, go to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival at Disney *finally*, find a Halloween costume, and we went on a haunted hayride while we were up in CT this past weekend which was a lot of fun!
