It's Friday! It's Friday! And here in Richmond, it's a whopping 52 degrees! I'm used to wearing cardigans all year because of my tattoos, so I can't tell you how nice it feels to actually need one (they were absolute torture when it was in the 100's this summer).

As I said yesterday, I'll be camping at Crabtree Falls this weekend and the weather could not be more perfect. I'm looking forward to cuddling up in a sweatshirt and warming my hands and face by the fire tonight :)

So I know Fall doesn't officially start for a few days, buuuuuuut with the weather like it is today one can't help but celebrate early. Sitting here with a warm Starbuck's drink in hand, I thought it would be fun to share my Fall ''to do'' list with you. I do this every year, because it's so nice to have fun things to look forward to each weekend!

btw - you may get offended by this, but speaking of Starbuck's has anyone tried the Salted Carmel Mocha yet? I got one last night to sip on while I shopped for camping goodies, and I've gotta say I'm not a fan. It was too salty. I think they actually put a shit load of salt on the top.... nasty. Maybe it was my baristas fault? Who knows... but I'll be sticking to my bff the Pumpkin Spice Latte for good from here on out! (sorry I cheated on you, my friend!)

So without further adeu........

[original imagine found here]

[01.] Get pumpkins, apple cider, and apple donuts here.

[02.] Plan a Murder Mystery Dinner with a group of my favorite friends.

[03.] Check out the local haunted hot spots in Church Hill. Hopefully meet a friendly ghost :)

[04.] Go apple picking with this girl here (again!)

[05.] Camp at least one more time before it gets too cold, but this time here.

[06.] Throw a scary movie marathon with friends. Including my favorite movie of all time: The Shining.

[07.] Throw a badass Halloween party where everyone gets dressed up. I'm thinking about incorporating this into my costume this year :)

[08.] Attend the infamous Richmond City Drag Brunch in honor of my best friends birthday! (not really fall-specific, but nevertheless a good time!)

[09.] Force my puppies to dress like this and this. Because I'm mean like that :)

[10.] Get a Halloween themed sleeve here with this guy -- appointment has been set! I'm pumped!


  1. Great post. We've been apple picking like crazy up here in Wisconsin!

  2. I really wish I could relate to some of these things, but the seasons are a little different here. Plus we don't have Halloween, really. It's starting to get muggy and tropical-y (it IS a word) here, Summer's a coming... Hooray! Enjoy your cooler weather and your new ink!

  3. I'm planning on going to Carter Mountain too, but it's my first time! It was on my to-do last fall and never happened. Womp womp.

    And SUPER exciting about your tattoo!

  4. @Kim... it is seriously so much fun! they have apples and pumpkins. but more importantly, the apple donuts are TO DIE FOR! same with the apple slushies!


speak your mind! always!
