fall is calling my name...

I'm sitting in front of a large fan with the air conditioner on right now, and it reminds me the tiniest bit of fall. It's the closest thing to fall we have for at least another month, but I love when October comes and the weather cools down a little! I'm hoping for a simple, fun fall that we can experience as a family- it would be so nice to relax and enjoy it all. :D

I don't decorate for fall or do anything special, but I love these free labels you can put on your used veggie cans! It seems like a great project for recycling our cans.


And is it weird I'm getting really excited about wearing my fall clothes again? I hope at least some of them will fit me by the time the weather cools down. :) I found this outfit on Pinterest, and I already have all of the pieces other than the earrings. :) It makes me happy when Pinterest reminds me of things I already own!

Fall always makes me think of popcorn balls, hayrides, and fairs too. I have these popcorn balls on my imaginary fall bucket list:

And this chicken and dumpling recipe is also calling my name. When I was a little girl, I would request chicken and dumplings for my birthday dinner- that's how long I've been loving them. Mmm... :D

easy recipe I'm going to try from Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife
Even if I don't get around to making crafts, popcorn balls or any other fall foods {hey, those are all just for fun, anyway}, I am excited about one of the very best parts of fall at our house this year:


Ahhhhh. So much sweetness. :D

What parts of fall are you excited about?

Ooh, he's soooo sweet!! I really love fall, fires, roasted chestnuts, walks in the forest ... but here it is often the return of cold (50 ° F this morning) and the rain ... then puts the big sweaters, boots and socks!Blessing, Sophie

Oh he is so precious!! I love fall and everything about it!! I shared on my blog at www.reina4jesus.blogspot.com. But for me the yummy scents, coffees, teas, goodies, boots, sweaters, scarfs, leaves changing colors, crisp cool weather, pumpkin patches, hayrides, apple picking, family time and friend gatherings!! It's so much fun. I love making popcorn balls too I will have to post a recipe we've been using for the past couple of years they are the best, gooiest popcorn balls ever!! When I saw your pic of popcorn balls with caramel, I have to try that out!!
Blessings,
Adrienne

I'm excited about raking leaves! We bought our little one a play rake to "help us" when we're working on all the oak leaves in our backyard. I also want to do all the cheesy pics with leaf piles too. :)

I love fall food! And I'm excited to start dressing for fall, too. Oh! And a big one: I'm ready to not sweat to death when I go on my morning runs. :-) I'm learning to tolerate being drenched in sweat, but it will be nice to come home refreshed and dry.

I too love all things fall, but I am still savoring the last few moments we have of summer! Those labels are great, and they remind me of some beautiful tea tins that I need to get out and use! Thanks for the inspiration!

(and my house is big enough for your whole family, really!!)
