A Few Favorites-Fall Edition

Hello and happy weekend! I am up before the family, enjoying a cup of coffee and some almond flour banana bread. I love mornings to myself. I get to enjoy the quiet and “me-time” before the day starts.

This afternoon, we are going to “Boo at the Zoo.” I am SO excited. K is going to be a teddy bear, and I have a mamma bear shirt and ears. My mom and mother-in-law are coming, too! I love that we can have an outdoor, safe Halloween activity for K.

Moving on….

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite Fall things…

COOL MORNING RUNS: There really is something about the crisp, Fall air that makes my runs SO much better.

PODCASTS: I think my true crime podcasts are extremely fitting this time of year. A few favorites are My Favorite Murder, Crime Junkie, Morbid, Full Body Chills, and Dateline.

SNACKS AND BAKING:

I found these at Aldi, and oh my gosh…YUM.

FOOTBALL JERSEYS:

We are Cincinnati Bengals fans! Well, I am…my husband is not. Also, this picture was from when K was sick, so she has a pedialyte popsicle.

READING: I am currently reading the Harry Potter series.

TV SHOWS: I have been watching Ratched on Netflix and oh my goodness it is creepy and so addicting! Not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. I am also watching the Bachelorette….it has always been a guilty pleasure haha.

DECORATIONS: I haven’t taken pictures of ours, but I love decorating! Our porch looks so cute and festive!

That’s all I have for today! K will be up soon, and I will be on mom-mode all day. I am looking forward to her morning hug! I love this mom life!

Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,

Carly

Fall Activities With Toddlers

Hello, and happy Sunday! My little one developed quite the cold overnight and feels pretty yucky. She is trying to sleep on my husband, and I am laying next to them. The changing weather always does this. Ugh!

Fall has always been my favorite season, despite the sickness that seems to come every year. The weather is perfect to get outside without being too hot or cold. We have had an absolute blast this Fall. K is so fun and curious this year and I absolutely love it! I am going to share some of our favorite things we have done so far (all while socially distancing).

Farm fun! K got to feed goats, have fall muffins, take a hayride, and pick pumpkins.
Choosing the perfect pumpkin.
Painging gourds and pumpkins! We put her in just a diaper when she painted her pumpkin and she ended up painting herself, too! It was so fun and messy!
We did a hayride during the weekday when there was only a few other people at the local farm. It was a great way to spend the afternoon!
Halloween stickers! K absolutely loves these!! My mom got her a ton from the dollar tree.

We have also done apple picking and a lot of baking!

If she is better by next weekend, we plan on going to Boo at the Zoo.

Well friends, that’s all for today. I am off to spend the day cuddled up with my sweet family!

All my love,

Carly
