L ast Sunday ago we enjoyed what I want to call “A perfect fall day”. My day started early as usual, after my cup of coffee I sat down and wrote a few things I would like to do that day and immediately asked my husband if he was up for a fun day :)
We left the house around 10:30 am and headed straight to a local farm to pick up a few pumpkins and homemade goods. We were the first people to arrive and it was a bit too calm for our taste but we left with a few small pumpkins and a jar of apricot jam and pumpkin butter, yum!
Right after that we went to Home Goods to pick up a few home decor items for the new season, a tradition of ours. There were lots of cute things, we chose a marble sign that said Thankful, a couple dish towels, a mug that said “pumpkin spice and everything nice” and an adorable dish for a casserole. (Stay tuned for a post all about fall home decor)
The next stop was Lowes to pick up a hanging mum and larger pumpkins, we found really different ones, my favorite was a gray colored one.
By the time we left Lowes we were pretty hungry, since we skipped breakfast due to a late dinner, so we decided to get the new Impossible Burger from Burger King (I told you was a fun day!). So good! Hope they keep it on the regular menu, it’s a nice treat for vegans!
On the way back we realized we should get a stack of straw/hay to decorate the yard, so we went back to the farm we were earlier (it’s pretty close to home) and stumbled upon a type of festival! We couldn’t believe how busy the place was compared to a few hours earlier. There was a band playing, a full parking lot, games, etc… We ended up staying a bit and doing their awesome corn maze. We had a really great time.
At home we got straight to business. My husband was in charge of making chili (vegan, of course!) in the slow cooker and I was responsible for decorating the house. I also decided to make pumpkin bread. It’s easy to say that by the end of all the cooking we were both tired but happy to enjoy dinner with a relaxing and cozy home. And let alone the smell! I wish I could share it with you guys!
We went to bed watching Battlestar Galactica (we just started) and feeling pretty good about our perfect autumn day. If you want to see how our home looked after all the changes, come back in a few days, I’m writing a post all about that.
Thanks for reading.
