fall to-do list {followers fest}

Welcome new readers + old readers alike!  I'm excited to join Casey, Illy, Jess and Danielle for October Followers Fest today!  You can check out the many many links from their sweet blogs.

Since fall is my favorite season and we live in New England, known for its picturesque colorful fall leaves and scenery, I try to take advantage of the many things the region has to offer ((but having lived in six other states I know most places have fun autumnal festivities)).  Every year, I intend to visit an orchard to get pumpkins and apples.  I also love heating up apple cider with mulling spices to make our house smell good.  Those are just a few of my fall traditions.  Who doesn't love baking with or smelling baked apples and pumpkins?!

It's time to talk about our fall to-do list and its progress.
I've already blogged about several of these to-dos, but here are the links ((in case you haven't seen them yet)).  We visited a New England apple orchard on an unseasonably warm day, I baked this super easy recipe for pumpkin crisp, made a festive fall wreath for the front door, and decorated the mantle with leaf garland ((pictured below)) and many other pretties.
I created my leaf garland using this tutorial I found via Pinterest.  I also completed the 30 for 30 challenge in September.  Don't worry, I have a handle on New Hampshire and plan to learn to crochet in coming weeks...so we're getting there!

What's left on your fall to-do list?

((And don't forget to enter the birthday giveaways herehere and here.))
