Apple Picking

Good morning!

Weekend update...coming up!

Matt and I had such a lovely weekend!! I had wanted to go apple picking all week, but the weather was seemingly not in our favor. My hopes were low when I woke up on Saturday, but it wasn't raining so we took a shot. Oh my, I am so glad we did! It was a perfect fall day, no coat required, and simply beautiful outside. It was the first day I loved that it was fall.

Right as we got there I wanted to snap pictures of course! So I took this one!


As you can tell, NOT a picture. I was accidentally taking video...but it made me laugh so I thought I would share. Please do not judge my hideous laugh....



Please excuse the hair in my face...obviously I was struggling.






Matty...an action shot!






Peek-a-Boo!



I wanted to act like I was eating the apple right off the tree..but instead it looks like I am eating the branch. Funny photo FAIL.



Take Two...Success!






Matt in the tree getting the perfect apple! We later read a sign that said you weren't supposed to climb the trees. Oops. Sorry tree. Our bad.







We finished the day with a trip to the grocery and enjoyed homemade lasagna for dinner by yours truly! It was yum! Tomato and Basil Prosciutto! Yeah for leftovers!


We got our butts back to church on Sunday which felt incredible and hit up Sonic on the way home. Then I finally put up all of our fall/Halloween decorations! I am so excited to share those with you guys...perhaps tomorrow...

Then the very best thing happened! I went to the gym for about an hour, came home, and walked into a kitchen where ALL OF THE DISHES WERE DONE and I could hear the faint sound of the laundry running. My husband was busy, busy when I was gone. Talk about a love tank overflowing. My tank runneth over. I have to admit, I got a little teary. So sweet!


I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!! I cannot wait to hear about them all!!

XOXO

Ha!!! My absolute fave photo is the one of you about to eat a chunk out of that branch. Totally awesome!!! It looks like you guys had a great time...yay! What delish apple treat are you going to make for me?? :)

Lucy Marie said...

Sounds like fun. I agree with S .. the photo of you having your way with that branch is amazing.

Glad to hear you enjoyed church on Sunday ... our service was really awesome this week. We had a special thanksgiving service.

And - I love that he did the dishes and laundry. Last night E did some laundry for me too. So sweet. Except he put one of my sweaters in the dryer. But I just won't bother saying anything about that. Sometimes I think he does it on purpose so I won't ask him to do laundry anymore :D

A fall day of apple picking while wearing sweatshirts?!?! I am officially jealous! We used to go apple picking every fall when I lived in California but I don't think we have apple picking in Florida. Maybe orange picking? Doesn't have the same appeal does it? What are you going to do with all the apples?

New England Girl said...

What a wonderful weekend!! :) I am so glad you guys got in some time outside and enjoyed all of this beautiful fall weather. Apple picking looks like it was a success! I have yet to engage in this activity this season, but it is a must on my list. I can't wait! Your lasagna sounds wonderful and I am sure it was even more wonderful to come home after a workout to dishes and laundry done. Great weekend in my book! :)

Chelsea said...

Just stumbled upon your blog. I laughed out loud at your "action shot" of your husband picking an apple!!

Looks like fun. I'd love to do that!

Ashley said...

Sooo jealous that you got to go apple picking! I told Brian that the next time we went on a fall vacation this is something we will have to do!!!

I have always oved the movie, Baby Boom, (I dont know if you have ever seen it) but in the movie Diane Keaton has an apple orchard and she makes her own baby apple sauce! I really want to be able to do this...one day :)

Have a great week!!

Isn't fall the bees knees? (I'm trying to say that as much as possible)

fall is so nice. with pumpkins and scarves and colorful leaves.
its the impending doom of winter that always gets me.
the first snow fall may be magical and the golden and red leaves beautiful, but give the sun shinning on my shoulders and i'm in bliss.
