Weekend Recap: Movie Marathon, Outdoor Shopping, Rainy Weekends

What a rainy glorious weekend we just had. It was so relaxing and lovely. This past weekend our area was hit with the remnants of hurricane Ian. So it pretty much rained all weekend with some breaks in between.

I started the weekend with taking a Friday night yoga class. I was nervous at first because I was the only person to sign up 😬 no pressure. There ended up being three students and the teacher. I get nervous because my ego gets in the way and I doubt my poses, but it ended up being great. I’m gonna try going every Friday.

Saturday was an unexpected adventure. We decided to visit Peddlers Village, which is a charming, old-fashioned “village” with shopping and restaurants. We usually go once a year and decided to go. There was a break in the weather and it turned out to be such an amazing time.

We purchased wine, popcorn, stocked up on some chocolate honey that I love and had a delicious lunch. We even got Millie some goodies.

Garlic pesto pizza. So yummy 😋
Little water creek in between the shops.
Millies very fitting new toys for the weekend.

I got to cross another item off my Autumn bucket list. Movie marathon 🎥 and it was very fitting. We watched Hocus Pocus 2 and then the original. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was good. We set the mood with our pumpkins and Halloween decor.

Millie destroyed her hocus pocus pumpkin then relaxed on my lap the rest of the night.

Sunday was very relaxing and I didn’t take really any photos. I took a yoga class then relaxed all day. It downpoured most of the day which called for lots of relaxation. I tested out a new hair drier which I really like. The rest of the day was spent getting ready for a new week.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun or maybe you just relaxed? The weather has changed so quickly and Fall is full blown 🍂

Weekend Recap: Apple Picking, Baking & Autumn Bucket List

The weather this past Saturday was perfection 😍 It was such a beautiful cool day and perfect to work on my Autumn Bucket List.

We went apple picking 🍎 Neither my husband or I have ever been apple picking and I was excited to do something different. We found a local farm and just went! It was such a fun experience. First, I got to learn about this huge local farm that I’ve never even heard of and also explore the farm. There were a ton of families with their little children enjoying the activities. They had live music, food, cider drinks, and activities. They even had a pumpkin patch they created so you could pick pumpkins. I tried their cidre peach and it was so yummy 😋

Something else I’ve been wanting to do more of this Autumn is bake. I told my husband I wanted to bake something with the apples and he mentioned how is grandmother used to make Jewish apple cake. So I decided I would make one. I found a recipe I wanted to make and it recommended certain types of apples. The farm had these apples avaliable for picking so it was perfect.

I am no cook or baker but this cake came out so delicious 😋 I can’t stop eating it. I am pretty proud of these cakes. My husband did help me so props to us!

Now to pick what to do next on the bucket list! What are you doing this autumn?
