Our Autumn Recap

Here's how I believe you can create autumn while it's 80F degrees outside:
Find a flower basket to spruce up your front door
(preferable one which has a bow missing, then ask for a discount which ends up saving you a dollar. Score!)

Add a bow you found at home and feel fall crafty!

Take your toddler to indoor activities such as this free KinderMusik class offered at the local library where we sang Halloween songs.

Attend a Fall festival happening nearby and get your kid's face painted like his favorite superhero.  Bonus points: get a balloon shape of the same character.

Attend ANOTHER fall festival, this time where they let kids dress up and trick or treat for candy. Bonus: Have your family pose with pumpkins, ignore the sweat dripping off your forehead this is fall fun at it's finest!

Download a free photo editing app (I mentioned here) to add a cutesy fall garland to your pictures.

The one day all month when it suddenly gets chilly (meaning 65 degrees and windy) quickly pull out your sweater and take a trip to the park! Warning: This could result in your child subsequently falling sick for the next 3-5 days thus keeping you up all night, but that 30 minutes of feeling autumn weather might just be worth it.
Pretend its too cold to go outside so you finally make time for this easy DIY project.
Our living room lamp has golden accents at the base, but it didn't at the top so I figured, why not add my own?
Even though my hands are super shaky and I didn't do a very clean job the benefit is from a normal distance it looks pretty good!

Dress up your 2.5 year old as his current superheros obsession for Halloween (ignoring how this costume is way to warm for the heat outside), prep him for the role by watching a few (million) Batman cartoons. 

End the night eating your son's trick or treating candy while forcing your husband to watch your favorite childhood Halloween movie. 

And if you haven't had enough Fall Fun yet, try your hand at these perfect autumn recipes!

More Autumn moments to come soon, til then hope your Pumpkin Spice/Salted Caramel/Peppermint Mocha latte is extra sweet!
