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!
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?
