Friend Makin' Monday - All Things Fall


Can I just tell you how excited I am that FMM is back. Thanks again to Amber for hosting and thanks to Kasey for coming up with such a wonderful idea. I have met some really cool people through this fun activity.

Today Amber asked us to talk about our favorite things about Fall. I love Fall, so this is a great topic for me. Here's my list...in no particular order:

My birthday. OK, so maybe this IS #1 because I love my birthday (it's November 8 if you want to mark your calendars). I don't need a big to-do, but I enjoy hanging with friends and doing some of my favorite things.

Going to the pumpkin patch. I love the hay rides, the treats, and picking out pumpkins. We have gone to a lot of different patches over the years and each one has been a great time.

I kind of took this from Angie, but I love it too...the cool breeze through the windows. I'm feeling it right now as it's about to rain and it is just so relaxing and peaceful. I love fresh air coming into my house (and the reduced electric bill is nice too!)


College Football. There's nothing like a Saturday, hanging out at home or with friends watching the games. Of course I am an Ohio State/Big Ten fan but I love all college football.

Apple cider. Each year we drive to a little town south of year to get apple cider. It is delicious and not like what they sell in the grocery stores. Having a nice glass of cold apple cider screams fall to me.

Well, there you have it...my list. Of course there are other things too like Halloween, school supplies, and Thanksgiving. I could go on and on, but I'm off to read your lists!

Pumpkin patches are a fave of mine too, but I can't believe I forgot to mention it! Hope you have a wonderful week!

I totally forgot about pumpkin patches...I used to love them as a kid! We are hosting a party this year for Halloween so maybe I will get to go pick some pumpkins this year! :) Happy Monday!

I love pumpkin patches and you guys all reminded me about them. I can't wait to see my little guy toddling around the pumkins real soon!

Once again...

I'm loving your weather report, and am so jealous today that you are enjoying a breeze. We are still boiling here in TX. We had a few nice days, but I'm getting ready to see my curtains blowing in the wind hopefully SOON!!

Happy Fall my friend! and FMM ;)

I agree I love birthdays, not the gifts but the time with friends. I can also agree with you about the trips to the pumpkin patch. The patch we go to always has a great corn box.
I hope you are having a great labor day weekend.

Cool breezes on warm days are one of the best things about fall! It's not on my list, but it should have been. My birthday is November 20th, though I never know if that counts as fall or winter. I guess it's technically fall.

Thanks for sharing your list =)
