Happy Monday! I hope that everybody had a good weekend. After last week, we really needed a good few days around here. And, this weekend of fall fun delivered!
Lucky for us, Wisconsin saw some unseasonably wonderful weather this weekend. I’m talking all-day sunshine and temps in the mid-70s. It was glorious let me tell you! We took advantage of every hour and were outside as much as possible. This weather witchcraft sadly won’t last much longer.
Anyway, we kicked off Friday with an item on my fall bucket list – a corn maze! You guys … I’M NOW OBSESSED WITH CORN MAZES. That probably sounds pretty dumb, but it’s true. I can’t believe I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life and just now took part in this fall right-of-passage. It was ridiculously fun, and I think we started a new fall tradition!
If you’re local, head over to Meuer Farm for this year’s Elvis-themed maze!
We ended the day with a long walk with Finny boy, deep dish at our favorite local Italian restaurant (Ala Roma), and the first couple episodes of Mindhunters. Who else has started this show?! I admit that the first episode was kind of eh, but it quickly gets better from there. We’re already on episode seven!
Saturday was another gorgeous day! I decided last-minute that I wanted to try and get a new family photo to use for this year’s Christmas card. The plan was to just use a photo from our at-home lifestyle session, but unfortunately there aren’t any photos in there of all of us looking at the camera. So, we busted out the tripod and knocked out a little backyard session in less than 20 minutes. Having a wooded backyard does have its advantages at random times!
We also fit in our last mini-golf game of the year and a visit to our favorite drive-in before it closes for the season. I seriously wish these warm, sunny fall days would never end. Finn wishes the same!
Although Sunday was dreary and rainy, we ventured out to meet new friends for brunch! At my second 5k race last month, a girl was nice enough to come introduce herself after recognizing me from reading this little blog! (Hi, Ruth! 🙂 ) We’ve since met for coffee, and we got our husbands involved for our little brunch date. It was such a nice way to spend the morning and kick off the week!
A weekend of fall fun was exactly what my soul needed after a rough couple weeks. I’m glad to be going into this week back on track with a clear head and full heart.
