10 Best Things About Fall 

Hi, guys! I haven’t posted in a while so today, since it’s now fall, I decided to make a list of the very best things about fall. I LOVE fall, it’s probably my favorite season. It’s not too hot, and not too cold, which is perfect! So here is my list: 

1. Color: The leaves have finally changed color! Yellows, reds, oranges, and browns. So pretty! 

2. Wearing warmer clothes: I love taking out my scarves, flannels, sweaters, mittens, and hats. I knit, too! I just finished my first scarf of this year and I can’t wait to make more. 

3. Baking: My mom and I just made apple crisp, which is so good. I also like making cookies and other yummy treats!! 

4. Pumpkins: Pumpkins are just a reminder that fall is here! Pumpkin carving is also a favorite as well as pumpkin pie, pumpkin seeds, and everything PUMPKIN!!! It’s such a fun word! 

5. Halloween: Halloween is a super fun holiday. I love dressing up, trick-or-treating, and CANDY!! 

6. Thanksgiving: I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays! Since my family is vegetarian we have a tofurkey every year. My favorite foods on this wonderful holiday is probably the tofurkey, cranberry sauce, gravy, and mashed potatoes. But I love it all!!! 

7. Hot Chocolate: I have already started drinking it. It’s just so good and comforting! 

8. Corn mazes: I have gone to a corn maze almost every year for the past few years. This year I want to go through one with my friends. They’re so fun and a great way to hang out with your friends and family! 

9: Movies: I love staying inside watching movies. My number one favorite is a Charlie Brown Halloween… It’s a classic!! Who doesn’t love the peanuts?! 

10. Photos/Instagrams: I follow so many awesome accounts on Instagram and their feeds are just filled with color for autumn. I love it and I hope to have feeds like them this year! 

Well, those are just some of my many favorites for fall. What are yours? Have a great day!

Fair Day!

Every year, my town has a fair that runs all through Labor Day weekend. It is definitely one of me very favorite days! The Friday before that weekend, my school has the day off because it’s such a huge event so we have a four day weekend! I especially love the fair because I can spend it with my friends because basically my whole school is there, and because it is a tradition! I’ve gone every year of my whole life and I hope I never miss it! I thought I would share some highlights from that awesome day!

The Ferris Wheel and some AMAZING corn on the cob! We get it every year!

Some of my (many) favorite rides!

IMG_3855IMG_3699

Yup, I did go on the super slide! And of course got my DEL’S!!

IMG_3738IMG_3741

I had so so much to eat but I like to say that it’s only once a year that we go, so why not?! I got the Ben and Jerry’s mixed berry smoothie! So yummy!

IMG_3709IMG_3724

One of my all time favorite treats to get there is the chocolate banana. Oh – and the fried oreos! This ride above, The Freak Out, is also one of my faves!

I tried a Blueberry Shortcake for the first time and it was so delicious!! I may even like it more than strawberry!

That’s all for today! Sorry it took so long to post this! If you’d like to see more pics of this day, go check out my Instagram! Have a great day and weekend!

Just A Quick Hello…

Hey everyone! I haven’t posted in a few weeks so I thought I’d check in and say HI! How are you all? I decided today to update you on some things that have happened lately…

  1. I started 8th grade! I started on August 26th and have been at school for about a week now! I am really liking it so far, and excited that it’s my last year in middle school!!
  2. I switched my Instagram to a separate account. When I first started blogging I had one, then deleted it, and now it is BACK for GOOD! I just enjoy having a whole different one so I can post ALL the food posts I want without worrying if people get annoyed. 🙂
  3. IT’S ALMOST AUTUMN! I absolutely LOVE autumn and am so so so so happy for it to (almost) be here. I am sick of this hot weather! :/ I’m ready for carving pumpkins and apple picking!
  4. I will be trying to update my blog way more often! In fact, I should be posting again this weekend because on Friday, we have the day off from school to go to my town’s fair! I am very excited. It is one of my favorite days of the year and I love that I get to spend it with my friends! Can’t wait for you to see!
  5. I am HOPING to update the look of my blog by switching to wordpress.org… I started with .com because it was cheaper and easier, since I was just starting… but I will let you know if I do! If you have any tips feel free to leave a nice comment down below!

Well that’s about it for now! Hope you all have a great day!

Vermont (Trip #2) 

Hey guys! Last Tuesday, we left for Vermont and we stayed until Friday.  I had so much fun! I decided to share some photos from the second trip.

The first day we got there we went to Ben and Jerry’s, again! I failed to take pictures of my food, but I will say I got Phish Food ice cream which is one of my faves! After Ben and Jerry’s, we went to a Cider Mill which was really cool and smelt soooo good! We got free samples of cold apple cider, and we got cider donuts too! Oh, and I got a CIDER SLUSH which was amazing!!

I definitely recommend it if you’re ever in Vermont, or anywhere that sells it!

The next day, we spent some time in Burlington. It was a super cool town and there were so many awesome stores!  Here are some more pics:

This was a super neat mural that was all down an alleyway. It’s filled with famous and historic people from Vermont!

So yummy… This is a Nutella, strawberry and banana crepe. It was amazing! Last time I had a crepe was last summer in Maine, so this is a total treat for me!!

I got these cute socks in a store that ONLY sells socks!!

For dinner, we went to a restaurant called Tilt which was really cool because while they’re preparing your food, there are tons of arcade games like Pinball and Pac Man!


This was the sunset on Lake Champlain that night. So pretty!!

The next day, we went to Jay Peak which is a huge resort up in the mountains of VT. It’s at the highest point of the state! We went there for the water park (which is INDOOR!) and also for the arcade. The water park was awesome. There were water slides, a lazy river, hot tubs, a pool, and a surfing/boogie boarding wave.

 
The next day was our last day. 😦 We went down to Burlington to a restaurant called Penny Cluse Café.

 

I got yummy blueberry pancakes.

The bathroom was filled with these cute little coffee cups which is their logo!

That’s all for today! Have a great last few weeks of summer!

Vermont (Trip #1) 

Hey guys! So this past weekend my brother and I were invited to spend the weekend at our friends house in Vermont! We are actually going next week with my mom, too, so I will call this post Vermont: Trip #1. Here are some pictures (all iPhone) from our awesome time there!

   

The ride there was so beautiful! There were mountains pretty much everywhere I looked.
No wonder they call it the ‘Green Mountain State!’ 🙂

     

My first meal there was pizza and garlic knots. They were probably the best garlic knots I have ever had! (The restaurant was called ‘PieCasso Pizza,’ by the way!)

    

After we ate dinner, we got some dessert at the Von Trapp Bakery, which is right down the road from the Trapp Family Lodge. I got a magic bar and it was DELISH!!! The second pic is the view from where we sat and ate. This photo is nothing compared to it in real life!   

The next day, we went to the Ben and Jerry’s factory. I LOVE Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, and I had never actually been to the factory, so it was so much fun! We took the factory tour, but unfortunately you couldn’t take pictures 😦 I did take some of other things there, though!!

I got Milk and Cookies ice cream. It is probably my favorite flavor! (next to phish food! 🙂 )

IMG_2240 IMG_2235

On the factory tour, you get to sample a flavor! The flavor of that day was a new one called Save Our Swirled. It’s raspberry ice cream with raspberries and chocolate covered waffle cone I believe. I don’t think this one is out in stores yet, but when it is I will totally be getting it! Oh and the second pic is of the outside of the factory! Super cool!

After that, we went to the Stowe Mercantile General Store. It was awesome! I love little stores like this and I did not want to leave!

Penny Candy!!

IMG_2306 IMG_2280

I ended up getting maple candy. SO YUMMY!! I love maple candy and since it was from VT, I think it tasted even better. 🙂 Oh, and there were so many adorable salt and pepper shakers!

Oh the third and final day, we went to the lake which was tons of fun. We were only there for about an hour, because we had to leave in the afternoon.

IMG_2307 IMG_2305

All in all, this trip was so much fun, and I can’t wait to go again next week! Stay tuned for the next VT post, and for more back to school posts, too!

What’s your favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor?

Happy Saturday!
