First day of Fall!!

on September 22, 2012

Morning!  It’s the first day of Fall!!


I am so excited about this!  I know that I have said it before, but I really love fall.   Some of the blogs that I read have put together Fall Bucket Lists, so I wanted to share some of the things that I wanted to do this year.



Fall Bucket List:

  1. Make some homemade chili
  2. go hiking before it gets too cold
  3. carve pumpkins with my niece and nephew
  4. make pumpkin muffins with butter cream icing
  5. Go for a bike ride
  6. drink (or make) a fall pumpkin latte
  7. make smores at a bonfire
  8. Make my pumpkin mousse cheesecake
  9. Go to a pumpkin patch
  10. Take some fall pictures


Well, there you have it!   I think these are pretty easy things to do, so I am excited about marking them off.


What do you have planned today??   I have to work until noon, and then I am finally going to put out the fall decorations in the house.  I also need to finish mowing the lawn….I was having an issue with one of the wheels on the back of the push mower, but thank goodness an awesome lady I work with asked her husband what it might be and it was a simple bolt that needed to be tightened.  I kind of figured that was the problem, but what I didn’t know was that as you tighten, you have to hold the other side of the bolt to do so.  Or basically you are just turning it round and round.  🙂



I tell ya, running this past week was great!  I busted out of the 8 mile a week range and couldn’t be more excited about it.  I wanted to make it to 15, but ended up doing 13!  That’s 5 more than usual!  I am going to rest my freakishly fast legs today.  Really, they are fast.  😉



I wanted a smoothie this morning so I threw together the following:

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen cherries
  • 1 tbsp of ground flax
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of protein powder




Got to get ready for work!  Have a great day!!
