Setting the stage….ok, so You remember last years’ first falliday celebration; it’s a fall holiday inspired by The Girl Next Door podcast . You can pick how you want to celebrate and when.
We celebrated early this year! In the last week of September. Here’s the Trader Joe’s goodies ready to go:
We’ve got a pumpkin muffin mix, a fall pumpkin and squash soup, some apple cider, the apple cider jam is back again, pumpkin spice joe joe cookies, chocolate covered ginger, multigrain crackers, and dark chocolate covered oranges. (The chocolates were purchased not so much for fall, but because Dave loves the ginger and Wil loves the oranges)
Trader Joe’s had a whole section of fall and pumpkin goodies!
The muffins turned out super yummy; I added dried cranberries and chocolate chips and a glaze to top.
She’s ready for the party!
She immediately put on her fuzzy socks and ate the caramel apple lollipop. Aren’t those felt pumpkins cute? (Dollar section at target)
Dave and Wil got fallish socks, and Wes received his socks, lollipops, and cookies in the mail ♥️:)
Oh the falliday fairy visited me too and what cute socks on my plate! 😉 (Target always has cute fall socks!)
Candles lit…the smell of cinnamon, apple, and pumpkin spice fills the air!
It was all good…my fam loves a cheese and cracker board, but they all hated the soup! I loved the soup. I guess they were expecting a sweet version of pumpkin soup which I make occasionally, and this was savory.
Good thing I made Mac n cheese for them too (🤣at least that’s orange)
The apple cider jam is a favorite, and the cookies and muffins were amazing. Hot apple cider was good too.
The kitchen was a disaster! But all in all, a nice cozy evening together in the middle of the week♥️
Happy Falliday! It’s actually chilly here today and I’m wearing a flannel shirt! Yay for fall🍂♥️🌲🍂♥️🌲
This post was not sponsored by Target and Trader Joe’s but should be, don’t you think…🤣…those two are my fall headquarters. Would love to hear your favorite fall treats!
