It’s Fall Y’All

Happy Fall!!! These next few months are my favorite. Cooler weather, football, smores, jewel toned colors, sweatshirts and leggings, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Zoe’s Birthday, Christmas. Just give it all to me!

Got our porch looking more fall like!

A running theme of the pandemic for us is celebrating anything and everything we can. Sunglasses party! Rapunzel Party! Cookie Party! Well, a few weeks ago I decided to have a Fall Party! I ordered a few halloween/fall themed books from Target and set them aside for today. When Zoe wakes up, she will see the decorated table in the kitchen, and we will have some pumpkin rolls for breakfast!

This past weekend, we had some gorgeous fall weather!!!! It was in the 50’s in the morning, and never got above the low 70’s during the day with little humidity. That is the perfect weather for me. We spent a lot of time outside soaking it all up!

Zoe and I met up with my mom on Saturday for a little social distanced visit in a parking lot. This is the first time we have seen her since July, so it was really nice to see her in person. She brought candy corn for Zoe, and had picked up a really pretty blue sweatshirt for me that I couldn’t order online. I pretty much cried the entire way home, because honestly, I just wanted to hug her. I hate that we live in a world where we cant give our own mother a hug right now. But I am grateful for the time we got to see her and Zoe has mentioned her several times since, so I know that makes her feel good.

On our way home, we picked up BBQ from one of our favorite local places and spent the rest of the day building towers out of blocks and playing outside.

We had tomato soup and grilled cheese for dinner. Such a classic, and always my favorite. Zoe was a huge fan.

Sunday morning we got the floors cleaned and hung around the house. We ordered curbside pickup for lunch at a new to us restaurant called The Farmhouse. We got fried pickles, loaded fries, burgers and smoked gouda mac n cheese. It was delicious! I think my favorite was their fried pickles. I definitely want to eat there in person when we feel comfortable dining in. Their steaks look incredible!

Sunday afternoon we pretty much lived outside.We played soccer, took a walk, Zoe drove around in her Minnie car, bounced on her unicorn, played in her playhouse, it was just so pretty!

What is your favorite season?

    Fall is my favorite – absolutely no other season can even compete! You’ll have to let me know how those pumpkin rolls turned out! And I love your fall party!! I think it’s such a great way to make things special.

    The BEST season! I am going to get the pumpkin rolls for this weekend… even if I’ll eat them by myself. Yes, this year has been a shitshow. I love how you’re celebrating the little things.

    You guys celebrate fall right!
    I feel like we’re all experiencing this pandemic at different levels and that makes it even more frustrating. I’m so, so sorry you can’t hug your mom! We’ve seen both our parents because they’re the babysitters for M while we’re at work- although we’re still not hugging or kissing anyone. I know they kiss on M but I know they’re being careful and masking up when they have to go out. But it’s still so hard to be as cautious and we’re all being.

    Fall for sure! I am so glad that football is finally back this weekend! Sorry you can’t hug your momma. I have the opposite problem, I wish mine wouldn’t insist on hugging me. I feel so guilty about all the places I go because of it!

    This is such a fun time of year! I love the idea of celebrating anything. Having perfect weather makes a huge difference. It’s so hard not hugging your loved ones. Sending you a virtual hug.

    I’m glad you got to see your mom, but I hate that you still can’t hug her. It’s definitely tough to be cautious when it comes to certain things and people.

    Looks like you had a really nice weekend though – and yay for great weather. Fall is my absolute favorite season. My favorite holiday is Halloween, so these next couple of months are amazing for me. LOL I love that you celebrated Fall Day – how fun!! I’m sure Zoe loved it.

    Room on the Broom is CUTE! The Netflix version is great too. We watched it last year.

    Girl, I still have not had my mom since March! I’m so over this Covid stuff but I am happy that fall is here! Your tomato soup and grilled cheese looks divine and I’m gonna have that soon!

    I am so glad that you got to see your mom. It is a weird world right now and any chance to see family is a good one. I love that you celebrate all things. My girls love Fancy Nancy. I need to look for that book. I am all about grilled cheese and tomato soup!
