Pumpkins, Leaves, Sweaters and Blessings...Fall Bucket List

Happy Fall Y'All!
i know it's early to some but i just LOVE saying that:)
and you know, they say Fall begins in October.....
but once school starts.....it's Fall Y'all!

so i made my Fall bucket list this morning.
no surprises.....
it's truly that time of year when you want the same ol' thing.
the smell of pumpkin spices and apple pie.
college football on saturday.
crisp fall air.

(actually, I can only DREAM about that one......and i do!:)
see what i mean.......no surprises with my list:)

time to start making some sweater vases like last year.
they were really easy and kinda cute,
if i say so myself:)

do you decorate for Fall?
the easiest thing to do is plaster the house with pretty pumpkins:)
inside AND out.......
if i had a pumpkin patch, i would SOOOO do this.....

and since i like TREATS.......
here are a few of my favorite.

candy corn pretzels!
just dip pretzel sticks in white chocolate
 that you colored and you have these cute little treats!

oh my gosh.......
i LOVE caramel apples.
there are so many cool ways to make them these days that
I'll have to do a blog post sometime.
but here's one that is so stinkin clever i can't stand it:)
pretty self-explanatory, so go for it!
if you're a tiny bit more ambitious, try this.......

Hollow out apples and bake with cinnamon and sugar inside. 
After it's done baking, fill with ice cream and caramel. 

and if you're lucky enough to get those cool, crisp days.......
try making some pumpkin pie white hot cocoa!

there is a recipe out there somewhere but it has a few more ingredients than this LAZY
girl likes......or can remember.
so to keep it simple, use white chocolate instead of chocolate chunks 
to make the cocoa and add pumpkin pie spices.
totally DELICIOUS!
have a LOVELY day!!!
