Fall to-do List

Fall is one of my favorites. . .

but it always seems to go by so quick!

This year, I wanted to make a to-do list (you guys know how much I love my lists. . .) to try to take advantage of the 6-ish weeks of fall in Minnesota!

#1. Hiking. There is the beautiful trail between St. Peter and Mankato called 7 mile creek park. And with the fall colors.. . it is pretty amazing.

#2. Apple orchard. Fresh apples.  Apple butter. Apple doughnuts. Apple cider. Apple everything. Yes please.

#3. Crockpot meal. Tis the season, right? I’m ready to embrace it, starting with this one.

#4. Go to a football game.

I love to watch my beloved Packers on the big ‘ol TV at home, but doesn’t an outdoor football game just scream fall? (Why do I live so far away from Lambeau stadium??) And we just happen to live within a mile of Minnesota State University football stadium. Go Mavs. Smile And I think Luke would love all the activity and let’s face it, he’s all boy, so he loves any sport with a ball these days. . .

What’s on your fall to-do list??

Also, I am linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday!

  1. Wish we lived closer to one another. We’d definitely be making it to a Packers game.

  4. My crockpot is out and I’ve been using it for a few weeks! Also on my list is chili, football games, apple cider and pumpkin beer! Ok, all but one of those are food so you can see where my focus lies.

  5. I do love fall… just not what comes next. Eric took Annabelle to a preseason Cikings game this year and she loved it! I’m sure Luke would love a game too!

  6. I totally agree with all the things on this list! Well, except #4-I’m not much of a football fan 😉

    But, seriously, hiking is my favorite thing in the world to do, and since October is the very best month of the year to do it in, it gets a gold star!

  7. Dan and I were just saying this morning that we want to make a fun list of things to do in October. Definitely yes to football, hiking, and anything apple and pumpkin related 🙂

  9. I hope fall lasts a little bit longer and winter stays away 🙂 Crockpot needs to come out asap!

  10. Yes to the apple butter! I love apple butter on top of pumpkin bread. Perfection! It takes fall a little while to reach Williamsburg, but that just means we get a nice long fall to enjoy! Home-baked goods are definitely on my fall list, also crockpot chili.
