Fallin' Behind

Since Fall has arrived and I consider the season to be a "fresh start" so to speak - I thought it would be nice to make a little list of to-do's, then try and accomplish them all before winter sets in. (And let me tell you, where I'm from, the winter comes fast and furious!) I know this is the kind of thing most people start in August, but better late than never, right? Not everything is a chore, some of these things are just ideas I am rather fond of! Here goes:

1. Take D through a Corn Maze, now that she's old enough to enjoy something like that!

2. Visit Boo At The Zoo

3. Clean out my overly cluttered hallway closet, and donate what I don't need. (There will be a lot of it.)

4. Transition D to her "big girl bed."

5. Make caramel apples. Check out this yummy recipe from Saving SAHM Sanity!

6. Start properly potty training D, perhaps on this coming long weekend.

7. Clean up the yard. Ugh.

8. Help Mom with her garage and closing up at the lake.

9. Decide on a Halloween costume for D (and maybe one for me, too!)

10. And number ten is a doozie, so brace yourselves - get pregnant!!! Yup. I totally just went there.

What are you hoping to do before winter???




  1. Oh my gosh- the corn maze and caramel apples are a great idea. I might just copy you :)

    Hmmm, I'm thinking pumpkin patch ASAP and get to carving that special pumpkin face... and only after that, replace the basement window that broke in a storm ;) It's been taped up with a garbage bag and masking tape since August. Talk about procrastinating.

  2. Thanks for the mention. I like the idea of a fall to do list, I know what you mean about winter setting in, we only have about five weeks left of fall, six if we're lucky!

  3. Hey, visiting you via the blog hops!
