Fall is Here.

Fall is is here.  Pretty soon there will be apple picking, corn mazes, and pumpkin pie to bake.  Doesn't that sound amazing?  Last night I made homemade persimmon and chocolate chip cookies.  It was an experiment that ended up being delicious.  I've noticed that the leaves are beginning to change and the corn in the fields is slowly changing from green to brown.

I really like this picture.  I spilled half a cup of coffee on my chest, dropped a cantaloupe on my foot, and almost knocked over a little girl trying to take it...

A few weekends ago Jess and I threw a Bachelorette party for our friend Dianna.

Bachelorette parties are a good excuse for married ladies to have a night on the town with their girlfriends, wear blue eyeshadow, and pretend like they are in college again.  I can't believe my lovely friend Dianna is getting ready to enter into marital bliss this weekend.  As the matron of honor I have been diligently preparing my speech and practicing to make it just right.

The best news for me is that I get to go to a good party, drink free wine, and dance the night away as I celebrate with them.     

My birthday was on the 16th and to celebrate we had friends over for the weekend and we tailgated at the Ball State game.  My 26th year is off to a good start.

Ignore the IU sweatshirt... this really was a Ball State tailgate.  Promise.

I've been doing other Fall things like making decorations.  I made this wreath after seeing it on Thrifty Decor Chick's blog.  I read Sarah's blog religiously and love her ideas.  My only wish is that I would have waited to make my wreath because just wait until you see what she did with candy corn!

I did take her advice and only put flowers on part of the wreath.  Her wreath was entirely covered with the flowers and although it looked amazing I didn't have the patience to keep going.  Check out the link above to visit her blog for the full set of instructions.  I can't wait to make more of these flowers.  Wouldn't they make cute pins or hair clips?

Excuse the dreary hallway pic.
LOVE this season!  Now its off to bed.  Happy first day of Fall!
