Hello!

I know it’s Tuesday, but I can’t forget to fill you in on my Saturday. I went to the Ballantyne Fall Festival. Emilee dragged me out of the house to go with her.

It’s so weird experiencing fall in 90 degree heat. I’m so used to a freezing fall, but I’m not complaining. I can live with this!

Thank goodness the festival had all the food trucks, I was hungry.

Emilee and I split a plate of bbq pulled chicken, coleslaw, and baked beans.

The festival was set up with all kinds of crafts and goodies. Β Luckily the weather held up and the storm in the background passed without a drop.

My favorite part was the pumpkin carving contest. Of course, I always vote for the pumpkin with the least votes.

Although the bouncy house looked tempting, I left it for the children πŸ™‚

When I got back from the festival, I was in a baking mood, so I baked some fresh cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning.

I also made some delicious pumpkin cookies! Later that night, I went out to dinner with Emilee and then came home to pass out!

    I’m not going to lie, I’m a LITTLE jealous of your 90 degree fall weather! Here in Wisconsin, it’s been rainy and cold!

      I am also from Wisconsin (MKE area) and can definitely attest to that statement! I usually love rainy fall weather, but this year seems to have gotten a lot colder a lot sooner than usual.
