Hello Friends, Here are a few snaps from my Instagram, which I update a little bit more often than the blog here. Feel free to follow me (@sisforSandy) to see more about what I’m up to! My amazing brother make … Continue reading
A few weekends ago O and I went to the Pumpkin Patch down the street from her house. It was a blustery, rainy day, but it was the time I had with her so off we went. We were all tricked out in rainboots, jackets and umbrellas cause Rain in California is no joke. Rare but usually a serious storm. I didn’t get that many pictures due to the weather conditions, but she loved helping me pick some out for my door step and my classroom for my students to draw in Visual Arts.
Now, every weekend she asks if we can go back. I wish we could kiddo! How did you prepare for fall? Did you find any decorative gourds to place around your house?
Here are a few things that have caught my eye lately. Enjoy!
So, now that I’m back into the full swing of school and fall, it’s been a little crazy around here trying to keep on top of grading, lessonplans, sleeping, and ya know, feeding myself. I’ve been eying this list of smoothies as potential breakfasts (or really anytime) for a girl on the go! Any sound good to you? I’ve heard so many people talk about green drinks that it might be time for me to finally try one.
My AP art students last year were obsessed with Bob Ross. It only took one video from me, and then they would just make a playlist of him and watch during class while they were working on a project. His hair, his soothing voice, his ability to make “happy little trees”, he was a big hit. This article goes in depth on what working with him was like, and it sounds kinda amazing.
Uh… not much to say on this one, cute porcupine meets and eats a pumpkin for the first time. I want one now.
I’ve followed this blogger for a while now, and she has just recently started creating weekly videos of her life in with her hilarious boyfriend and two fluffy pups named Hamilton and Theodore. (#socute) I might have watched like an hour straight of her videos last night.
Anyway, it feels like September is going by so fast! I typically love fall, crisp cool mornings, bright sunny days, hot drinks, and of course PSL’s!
I remember I idolized Mathilda as a kid, I loved the whole storyline. I must have watched that movie so many times. This article discusses what she is up to these days, how its been like growing up from being a child actor, and a cute documentary she made during Mathilda. Did you like that movie as well?
Hows your September been? Anything good going on?
I personally really love Fall. I like all of the things that make the cold crisp mornings and start of a new season feel so much better. So without adieu, here is my welcome to Fall Bucket List!
- Explore a corn maze
- Pick out some pumpkins to decorate your house with (i love the white mini-ones!)
- Bake a pie
- Make Chili (I love my dad’s recipe!)
- Go apple picking (have a sunday planned to do that with my brother)
- Make s’mores
- Build a crackling fire and enjoy a good book
- Decorate pumpkins
- Smell cinnamon Candles at Bath & Body Works and try not to buy every Fall/Holiday candle scent
- Pull out the ol’ galoshes and splash in puddles
- Cozy up with your blankets on the couch watching the fall shows premiere ( i’m so excited for so many shows to return)
- Go for an early morning walk in the crisp foggy air
- Decorate your front door or porch with some cute fall decorations
- Start planning your halloween costume
- Start your morning with a steaming cup of tea instead of coffee
- find and devour ALL of the candy corn
I also love October because it’s my birthday month. Even without that special date, I love everything about the summer ending and a new season beginning. This year it really felt like our California summer lasted from March to well, now! I am really looking forward to pulling out my box of mittens, hats, scarfs and fuzzy socks!
How do you celebrate fall? Do you like the cooler temperatures of the upcoming weeks or do you wish summer would stick around?
