While the temps are soaring in the upper-90’s here, it’s not deterring me from pulling out what’s left of my Fall decorations box. What’s left?! Yes friends, my dogs got into the storage building and knocked it down. They thoroughly enjoyed playing with the new, fun toys that came out with it.
One thing I’m very much looking forward to (besides the cooler temps) is the start of our afternoon family walks. It’s sort of tradition that when it cools off, we get outside. We have a fairly big neighborhood, so we hit the pavement and take in the scenery.
Another thing that I’m looking forward to is buying replacement fall decor. Hobby Lobby is my trusty go-to, and with the amazing sales they’ve been having – I might stock back up and then some. I really want to get back to the place I was in my “former life,” and be the fun Pinterest mom.
The third way we are Falling Into Fall is by bringing out all the coziest blankets, throws and sweaters. We keep it nice and frigid in our house, and since we don’t really leave anymore – it’s a win/win. My favorite throw is this burnt orange/rust one from Better Homes and Gardens that’s at least 10 years old. It’s has been through a lot, and it’s only broken down and gotten cozier over time.
Finally, the fourth way we Fall Into Fall is through cooking and baking, no surprise there. We love all the warmth that a good, fulfilling meal brings in these cooler months. I love doing a traditional Sunday dinner – consisting of roast, potatoes, carrots, mac-n-cheese, green beans and some yummy butter rolls. Also up, fun breakfasts that we eat on the weekends I don’t have to work.
I’m looking forward to Falling all the way into Fall this year, because it’s been one hell of a year so far. Over the last few years, I really let myself down decor-wise, and cooking/baking wise. I have missed going all the way out, and having it spook-taciular in here! Look forward to some fun pics here, as well as our Instagram – @aintthatamother!
