Two Teens And Their Mama: 5 Favorite Things About Fall

5 Favorite Things About Fall


It's Lifestyle Systas Friday, and this week we're sharing our 5 Favorite Things About Fall, which just happens to be my favorite season!  



--Hiking.  There is no better time to hike in Washington than in the fall.  The mornings are crisp and clear, the afternoons are warm, and the trails in the mountains are stunning.  In September and October we hike every weekend if its not pouring down rain.

--Hot chocolate.  I'm not a coffee girl, but give me a cup of melted chocolate in milk and I'm SO happy!  


--Fall clothes.  Boots, sweaters, scarves, coats - I love it all.  Fall clothes are so warm and comfy, and they hide the...ahem...problem areas so much better than shorts and a tank top.

--My crock pot.  I make at least two meals a week in the crock pot once fall rolls around. It's so nice to come home to a delicious smelling house, with dinner already done.  I'm always on the lookout for new recipes, and I found these at Home. Made. Interest..  Yum!



--New TV shows.  So much promise every fall .... until the networks cancel them after only two episodes.  Last year we discovered The Goldberg's.  If you remember the 80's at all and like to laugh, you need to be watching this show.  It's hilarious and spot on!

I hope you'll link up below, or join us in two weeks for 5 Favorite Pictures of Me. Now, that is going to be a treat :)!  Be sure to check out the other Lifestyle Sistas!

  1. I haven't watched The Goldberg's yet but am always looking for something we can watch together as a family. I'm checking out your crockpot recipes. It's the only way I can get dinner made during the week!

    2. I'm not sure - I actually like them as they are, because the rest of your fonts are not that big. Maybe try it and see if you like it?
      I wrote a post for your Lifestyle Sistas linkup on Saturday, and totally spaced about linking it up! Just did though. Hope your weekend was good!

    1. Go Goldberg's! You were the first person (besides myself) that I talked to about watching it. It just gets better and better. Our new favorite saying in the house is "You know I don't like things".

  11. Do you watch The Goldbergs all the way to the end to see the actual video footage of Adams's family? You can also see the real Goldbergs the show is based on here. I'm with you for BEST show! http://www.historyvshollywood.com/reelfaces/the-goldbergs/

  15. I don't really do any outdoor sports and I don't use my crock-pot much. However I am 100% with you on all the other things. Will be checking out some of the new Fall TV Shows this week and see if I may start watching any. =)

    Happy Fall, Lana!!
