Fall Happenings

I thought I would join in on what others have been doing and write about our Fall Happenings, or what others call Fall Currently...

What We've Been Up To:
Doing everything we can to soak up the last bits of summery weather before Fall really hits and the cooler weather starts (which is basically starting today). We have been going to Nevada Wolf Pack football games, Apple Hill, walks with the girls and pup after work and trying to sneak in a few weekly girls nights.
 The family that watches football together....

What I'm Loving:
Spending time with my family. The girls are becoming mobile now and are at very fun stage right now. They love being vocal, sitting in high chairs, going shopping (can sit in shopping carts now) and being on the move. Each day is pretty much fun right now (thought very busy).

What We're Eating {& Drinking}:
We have been kind of bad lately and ordering take out more and more. Time to get back on the cooking at home train. I have some new crock pot recipes I can't wait to try out and I have a ton of soups that I am dying to make again. Plus I have been eating everything pumpkin that I can while it is still available.

What I'm Wearing:
The comfiest sweaters. I finally broke out my Pearl and Monroe sweater and it is heaven. I have also broke out the riding boots and have been wearing them with everything. From dresses to jeans, I have it covered. I basically plan my outfits around wearing those boots.
What I'm Working On:
Planning the girls first birthday party. I have a theme, ideas, a to do list, shopping list and now I just need to start buying things. Plus I am also working on Christmas planning. Trying to figure out what gifts we are getting the girls and which event they will get them at.

What I'm Watching & Reading:
Watching: Fargo season 2, American Horror Story (though it is pretty bloody and crazy this season), The Affair, Scream Queens (can't decide if I like it or not), Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy (not loving this season, but so dedicated to the show). And I am mostly reading blogs.

What I'm Excited About:
The holiday season and sharing it with my girls. I have been dreaming about this time for a long time. I have always wanted to show my children my family traditions surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas and now the time is here. Plus we get to see so many of our family members around this time and the girls will finally get to meet some of them. I can't wait to put up a Christmas tree and see how the girls react. I can't wait to see the twinkle in their eyes over the lights on the tree. Get ready for photo overload this holiday season.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:
We don't have much planned. But since it is Halloween, we are taking the girls to a local trick or treating deal at the Automobile Museum. It is more for the fun of showing the girls what is to come and showing off their cute costumes. We plan to hand out candy Saturday night and hopefully build our first fire of the season. Then it is making some yummy dinners this weekend and staying in. Couldn't ask for a better weekend ahead.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
Well next month is November which means Thanksgiving with my in-laws and family. And Christmas tree cutting with my family. We have our last home football game which means last tailgate of the season. And it is a good one. A huge chili cook-off. We never participate in it, but we bring corn bread and other yummy things. I love tasting all the chili's and enjoying the cold games.

And there you have my latest installment of Fall Happenings.


  1. Oh my! So much to look forward to!! I'm doing all of that too and am so excited about it. I can't wait to see what you get the girls. Please share you ideas: I need some. Ha ha

    1. Oh yes I will definitely share my ideas. Glad to help another momma out.

  2. Ahhh noo! Another person giving me baby fever! Your babies are so precious :) And my boyfriend and I have also been pretty bad with eating out a lot lately.. but we've been going on a lot of movie date nights so it's been fun! And it's been a nice break from cooking & cleaning dishes. And I can't wait for the holidays and to see how your girls react to a Christmas tree!

    1. Yes baby fever is going to be at an all time high this holiday season because I can't stop posting pictures of my girls!

      Oh I would love to have a movie date. Hoping that will be my next date night sans girls. Any movies you suggest seeing?

  3. Aww this made me smile! You've got so much excitement ahead and this Fall has looked amazing. I'm sure the Birthday planning is keeping you plenty busy in itself. I can't wait to see the girls' Halloween costumes. Also, I'm super excited for Christmas too. It's going to be so special sharing it with Ben :)

    1. I can't believe the holidays are upon us and we get to share them with our babies. Going to be so different than any other year. How old was Ben last Christmas? The girls' Halloween costumes will be up later this morning!
