TLC's 10 Favourite Fall-ish Things To Do:

Disclaimer: I may not technically do all of these things. Some are "bucket list items!"

1. Decorate pumpkins. (Because carving is too messy for my OCD tendencies.) Pinterest has so many cute ideas! Monograms. House numbers crafted out of gold thumbtacks. Polka dots. Glittered stems. I want to do them all!

2. Wear a scarf. every. day. I LOVE scarves! (Little Leighton really wants one of her own, too!) I'm currently on the hunt for something Burberry-esque, minus the Burberry price tag.

3. Starbucks. As much as I love all things pumpkin, I actually prefer their Skinny Vanilla Lattes over the PSL. (But I'll have a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin on the side, please and thank you.)

4. Visit lots o' pumpkin patches!

5. Go on a hayride! (We actually went on a hayride at a pumpkin patch this year!)

6. (Learn how to) Bake Gluten-Free Apple Cider Donuts. Yummy! I would actually love to go apple picking, too!

7. Sit on a quilt and gaze at the pretty, twinkling stars. Crisp. fall, evening air is enlightening.

8. (Learn how to) Knit or crochet a cozy throw blanket. 

9. Have a movie night--outside! We have friends that would host an annual Halloween Party. They would set up a projector and screen in their backyard. We would cuddle-up under blankets, munch on popcorn and have a ball! It was always so much fun.

10. Let a big pot of (Gluten-Free) Homemade Taco Soup simmer on the stove all Sunday afternoon. Nothing beats football watchin' and soup (and cornbread!) eatin'.

Gosh, Fall makes me so happy!
