We. Love. Fall.

We slept with the windows just cracked open last night.  It made the our room the perfect temperature- chilly enough that you curl up under your down comforter and say to assure yourself that you are never leaving that exact spot again, but warm enough that you won't wake up shivering when your wonderful husband steals that comforter off of you at 3:00 a.m.  This is my favorite time of the year.  I have decided to make a short "To Do" list for our fall.  I'm sure that if you check back at this post at the end of the season it will look quite different than it does at this very moment.  I plan on checking things off, one at a time.  All items are related to this wonderful season, well, almost all of them.  Bring on the pumpkins, burning leaves and comfort foods.  It's FALL!!

  • Make the trip to Kenosha for apple picking.  
  • Spend next two days baking pies and apple goodies.
  • Catch up on Martha Stewart's newest Halloween decorating/treat ideas.
  • Learn two new soup recipes.
  • Introduce Michael and William to Shady Knoll Pumpkin Farm.
  • Take the kids to the park just to play in the leaves.
  • Find the perfect monster or lion costume for Michael.
  • Spend Saturday afternoons and Sundays watching as much football as possible.
  • Try to get over the fact that it was another baseball season wasted.
  • Pull new ideas to decorate our new home- when we get it!
  • Take a day to spend at the Arboretum.  
  • Build warm fires and cozy up in a blanket on the couch and read one good book.
  • Scrapbook.
  • Make the trip downtown for one good farmers' market where I will spend way too much money on pumpkins and gourds just because I LOVE THEM!
  • Enjoy every second of the September and October cool air.  
I better go.  I need to get started!
