It's Fall!

Fall is my favorite time of year! Here's why:

#1 As soon as it starts to get chilly outside I start counting down the days until my birthday. (15!)
#2 Leaves changing colors, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful things
#3 It makes for great camping weather and photo ops.
#4 I love the clothes that accompany the weather. (I'm a sucker for sweats, coats, scarves, gloves, etc)
#5 Fall food is delicious! Who doesn't love a good caramel apple?

This year was fun to have Hunter is the south with me to partake in fall festivities! We have a Gilland Family tradition just before Halloween to go up to North Georgia and get apples and visit Burt's Pumpkin patch. Hunter loved it! We bought some little baby pumpkins for Peanut since he wasn't allowed in the pumpkin patch.


We also visited Amicalola Falls! It was a fun little hike that ended with 175 stairs to the falls!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Weekend Getaways

We closed out the month of September with a trip to Georgia where we explored with our new little guy, Peanut. We love having him around!

The first weekend in October we went to Mississippi with our awesome friends Hope & David and Annie & Spencer! We (well, Hunter and I) went to go support our Broncos! Southern Miss was playing BSU so we roadtripped over to watch. We had a blast!

We met a little girl named Lori who kept coming to sit with us. She kept screaming at the USM mascot and calling him a chicken. He was an eagle. She told us she wanted to cook that chicken!

Not only did we get to watch the Broncos claim victory but we had some much needed girl time and the boys went fishing afterwards as well. We ate at the famous Leatha's barbeque in Hattiesburg. Apparently, Morgan Freeman visits there quite frequently for some delicious ribs!

I would say that was all we had planned for this crazy month but I'd be lying! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to commemorate! Happy Fall!
