Fall to do list

29 September 2014

After a gloomy, rainy week in North Carolina, the glorious weekend we just had reminded me of everything I love about fall. These seasonal lists serve the same purpose – they get me excited for the months to come, and remind me of all the things I really want to do but might not remember to do! What’s on your fall to do list?


Pick apples at an orchard
Make apple pie biscuits
Host the second annual soup and pumpkin carving night
Make Thomas Keller’s chicken pot pie from scratch (filling, bechamel, pie crust, and all)
Hand out candy from our front steps (we’ll see if we can top our total from last year!)
Cheer at a Friday night football game under the lights
Make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins
Order Christmas cards
Watch the goat showmanship class at the State Fair (yes, it is as awesome as it sounds)
Make biscuits at our church’s Fair booth
Hike somewhere new with beautiful leaves

P.S. The Caitlin Wilson Designs giveaway is open until Friday!

So fun, Em! I am making apple cheddar scones this afternoon – and I cannot wait to hear how your pot pie turns out! xoxo

I miss everything fall so much although I suppose I can still do most of those things in Hawaii. Enjoy!

I live in Perth in Western Australia, and sometimes I really wish we had 4 seasons every year. As it stands, we have a “winter” which isn’t anything special, and summer aka a competition against the sun to see who will give up first. We’re heading into summer now, and it’s already starting to get hot. We didn’t even get a Spring! Sigh. Enjoy your fall, all of these things sound so lovely.

I haven’t officially made my Fall list but I already crossed off two on the list:
Eat squash (an amazing new dish I tried in Half Moon Bay)
Visit Apple Hill (last saturday!)

Those apple pie biscuits look delish!

You’re so smart to be thinking of ordering Christmas cards already. I agree, taking a walk somewhere with pretty leaves sounds like a must-do. Have fun, happy Fall!
