Fall Must-Do List

Last Friday when I posted my fall lust list, the temp here was a whopping 105 degrees and same on Saturday. My lust list didn't help my desire for cooler temps, and today's post isn't going to help so much either. This is my fall must-do list, goals of what I want to accomplish during fall. Is apple picking a goal? Not so much but it is on there and I am sticking to it is a goal, just to get it scheduled, drive out there and pick some apples is an accomplishment in itself. So yes it is a goal!
1. apple picking (photos from previous years)

2. make apple pie with apples from above activity
3. make homemade applesauce with again from above activity
4. visit a pumpkin patch and make jack o'lanterns
5. a. make pumpkin bread
b. load up a slice of pumpkin bread with cream cheese then run massive amounts to work off cream cheese calories
c. or make pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting

6. make cute and creative fall decorations
7. wear boots!!
8. weekend away to a cabin in the mountains
9. make soup and homemade bread for dinner
10. frolick in the autumn leaves
11. watch my husband grow another beard and me attempt a moustache
12. watch Kip and Kimbia attempt to grow a moustache too

13. hope that my team wins each week in fantasy football and I play in two leagues, thanks to the influence of my husband. The first week I was 0 for 2 and this past weekend I was 2 for 2. Lets hope this past week was a kick-off to a winning streak!
Watch me as I cross things off of my must fall do.
Whats on your fall must-do list?

One of my goals this fall is to make a pumpkin cheesecake and to visit a pumpkin patch! I think half the reason I love fall is for the hearty soups and playing in leaves.

So fun! I need to make a list! I'm from Texas and fall is hit or miss around here most of the time, but I will be spending 10 days in Ohio and Indiana next month and I am so excited to experience fall there - I should definitely find fallish things to do!
