Our Fall To-Do's...

I have had this post in the making for weeks and something else just kept popping up.  So instead of making a full blown bucket list, I'm sharing what we've done or will be doing this fall.  These are our family's fall favorites...

 *Halloween Party at School
Bowen and Ashby aren't in the same class this year so we won't get to recreate this picture.  Bowen is looking forward to celebrating with a yummy treat at school.

*Trunk or Treat
Last year our church started a new tradition...Trunk or Treat.  Trunks are decorated, candy is passed out, and everyone is all dressed up.  

 *Dressing Up
That's fun for everyone.  Right?  I've procrastinated big time on this one, but I'm hoping to find something for Tab and I to dress up in.  I'll keep you posted.  :)

We meet up with friends every year and trick or treat around town.

We've been the boo'er and the boo' matter which side you're on it's a fun little tradition.

 *Pumpkin Patch
There's something about having all my pumpkins at the patch.  It makes my mama heart happy.

*State Fair of Texas
We've already hit up the fair this year and it did not disappoint!

*Make Soup/Chili

*Have Smores

*Carve Pumpkins

What about you?  Does your family have a special fall tradition?  If so, PLEASE share!  Happy Thursday, Friends!  See you back here tomorrow for some faves.  :)

What's Up Wednesday

 I'm joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What's Up Wednesday link-up!

What we're eating this week:
Monday-Family Golf Night-so we grabbed something before our round of golf.
Tuesday-We had pizza at one of my favorite pizza places!
Wednesday-BBQ Chicken Tacos are up tonight!
Thursday-BBQ Chicken Rice Bowls-I'm making extra chicken tonight so dinner will be ready crazy quick tomorrow night.
Friday-On Fridays, Mama likes to keep the kitchen clean by going out.

What I'm Reminiscing About:
At this time last year I was binge watching my way through the entire series of Gilmore Girls.  Oh my goodness!  I LOVED that show!  Apparently, it's what I do in October because as teeny bopper as it is...I'm doing the same with One Tree Hill right this second!  

What I'm Loving:
THIS WEATHER!  Our weather has been incredible!  This week the highs are in the 80's, but the 80's are feeling like fall 80's and not middle of summer 80's...if that makes any sense.  ha!  We've officially busted out all the fall clothes!

What We've Been Up To:
ALL THE FALL activities!  

What I'm Dreading:
Nothing at the moment.

What I'm Working On:
Light fixture hunt!  The front sitting room is almost completely finished.  I just have to find a new light fixture.  Right now there's an ugly white fan.  Ugh!

I was working on this last month...still working.  :)

What I'm Excited About:
Taking these crazies to New York!  THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your recommendations yesterday.  I appreciate them SO much!

What I'm watching/reading:
I'm in the middle of Season 5 on One Tree Hill.  I'm not even reading a book right now because I can't wait to get to the end of this show.

What I'm Listening To:
The same songs as usual...Kidz Bop, Disney, and Christian music.

What I'm Wearing:
Top:  Exact here. (On super sale!)
Jeans:  Similar here.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:
We have all kinds of Halloween fun planned for the weekend.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
Seeing all these faces in layers of fall clothes around a Thanksgiving table.  

Hope you ladies have a great Wednesday!  XOXO

Need Your Help!

I have some fun news...


Not today, we're headed to New York City in a couple weeks!!!

My one and only trip to NYC happened earlier this year with Shay. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND!) It was an absolute BLAST and couldn't have been a better girl's trip.  You can see all our fun here and here.

This time I'm going with the family and I'm hoping for your help!

Tab has work to do so we're turning a work trip into a little family getaway.  We have a couple split days for sightseeing and such.  What would be your MUSTS in NYC with kiddos?  Do you have any favorite restaurants?  I'd LOVE your advice and help on this one.  

I can't thank you enough for your help!  Please let me know any recommendations!
