You know what I love about the changing of seasons? Other than a relief in the weather, that is. The change. With the coming of a new physical season is also the opportunity for a new season of our lives to be ushered in. What could be more refreshing than taking time to change things up, even set some goals for the next few months? So today’s roundup is just that: my fall checklist, or rather things I would like to accomplish before the season is over.

Do you ever have that moment where you’re laying down on your bed, relaxed and ready to doze when, what catches your eye, but dust creeping around the corners of the fan blades? Little, airy stalactites of dust threaten to defile your bleach-white linens at any moment, or worse, fall directly on your face. Because that’s likely, for that tiny dust bunny to fall right on your face. This is why this fall I’ll be tackling this sexy
little checklist. Before we hunker down in this house for the winter, let’s give it a once-over.
I think everyone has apple picking on their fall to-do list, especially families looking for some kid-friendly fall activities (that doesn’t involve a highschooler dressed like a clown chasing you with a chainsaw). Unlike the Carolinas where we originally hail from, it is pretty tough finding a place to go apple picking in these parts. Thanks to pickyourown.org, though, we’ve been able to find multiple semi-local (hour drive) apple orchards that allow you to (yep) pick your own.
First of all, Unfancy is a delightful style blog that won’t make you feel like you have to go shopping every weekend to have it together. I’m all over that. Second, in this blog post, Caroline shows you how to create a “capsule wardrobe” (a small wardrobe made up of versatile pieces that you truly love as opposed to tons of clothes that are low-quality or just not your favorites). This is something I am excited to try (especially with our hilariously small closets). The idea here is that you can be really happy with a lot less. Yes. Please.

It’s been 7 months since Nugget was born and I’m finally starting to physically feel more like myself in the fitness department. I can take the girls in the running stroller and actually feel good. So when I read Dana’s post at House Tweaking on training for a 5k, I thought, yeah, let’s go for it. She recently talked about some things that helped make her training process easier, if you’re interested in getting out there and breaking a sweat in this fall weather.

Lastly, another lovely to-do to get me out in this stunning weather before the cold sets in. I’d like to do more in the garden this fall to prep it for winter.
So what’s on your to-do list this season? Anything you want to try out?
