Leaves & Pumpkins . . . Fall is Coming

Earlier this week, one of my crafty blogger friends whose name is Katie {as in Katie Stories}, shared her checklist of things she plans to do this fall *see her list here*. I warned her that I would likely be copying her in the near future, and here it is - my Fall Bucket List:

As much as I love the warm, dry summer . . . I can't resist the beautiful colors of fall.  Around here, even though it was 95 degrees outside yesterday, the leaves are already beginning to change.  I guess it is time to accept the inevitable and make the best of it!



*My car thermometer hit 103 on Wednesday.  I am pretty sure it is off my about 5 degrees...but still. We broke the local record for September 11th by 1 degree.

*A local fire department hung this massive flag off one of their ladder trucks, out over the highway on 9/11 in remembrance.  I wish the photo better portrayed just how big it was.

*I got my first FREE copy of Popular Photography in the mail this week!  I can't remember how many I get...I want to say 6 months, though.

*Work has been a little out of control this week - getting a little bit of OT!

And.....because technically it happened within the last week, here are some more camping pics!

It's not a camping trip without some "adult beverages."  If you like the various hard ciders that have become popular in the last year or two . . . you have to try it mixed with some cinnamon whiskey.  This SinFire is a local variety, but you can also use Fireball or something else.  Also important to note - the grocery store pic in the bottom right corner was my FIRST EVER Instagram upload!

Some of my favorite pictures from the coast are still to come - I need to put a little more thought into which ones to share, though.....

To wrap up Friday and head into the weekend, I am linking up with Whitney for #backthatazzup!  The inspiration for this week's song comes from the live Taking Back Sunday concert we were watching last night on AXStv.
