this weekend, i...

{oh, look! all my photos revolve around food...}

- welcomed the first day of Fall with these pumpkin pancakes (from the pumpkin recipe roundup in my previous post) & they were SO yum, easy & mess-free.

- finally tried Zingerman's Roadhouse in Ann Arbor & had my first Cornish hen (delicious!!)

- saw this documentary and highly recommend it, it's a truly incredible story.

- cleaned our house & put away summer clothes/organized my closet.. it's amazing what a sense of relief/peace I have when or house is clean/a {teeny} bit more organized!

- bought my first piece of clothing for fall thanks to a Target gift card. it was exciting. my spending freeze continues and it has helped put things into perspective for me. although, i have to admit, i have a serious hankering to go on a fall shopping spree.

- started this devo on the YouVersion app, thanks to this pretty lady. good stuff, so far!

- had an awesome dinner guest on Sunday complete with a fall-inspired, dinner, a bonfire, these for dessert, and oh yea, Trapped in the Closet.

i am loving {potentially our last} Michigan fall so far! can't wait for the leaves to change. hope you are all enjoying the new season, wherever you are. even if it still feels/looks like summer there, at least you can get a Pumpkin Spice Latte and pretend ;)

Such a lovely fall post. Putting away clothes, gearing up for the upcoming season... maybe your last in Michigan. Eek! Definitely makes me look at California a bit differently since it might be my last here also.

I love it, Megan! Chris and I also celebrated the first day of fall--both of ours favorite season! How nice of it to come on a Saturday, right? I'm so glad we will be coming for Thanksgiving this year since who knows where you could be next year! It's exciting to think about! Hopefully you'll go somewhere with Fall if you do move...
