Weekending in the Fall

I love all things outdoors in the Fall, especially festivals!

Friday

We had an annual Oktoberfest in the town where my parents live this past weekend and it has continued to grow and get better each year! We tried everything from traditional Oktoberfest food (brats) to pizza and shepherd's pie.

Saturday

Mom and I headed to Tampa for a scrapbook crop fundraiser for Joshua House. A house for abused children that's been around since the 90's I believe. Anytime I hear about these kids and fostering or adopting I think I could take in a kid. Then I remember that I don't really like children so that's why I put my money to good use instead.


This was probably one of the more interesting crops we've been to. They have a drop off zone for all of your scrapbook stuff which if you've never seen all of the stuff that we lug to these things you wouldn't understand what a blessing this was. The fed us pretty much every two hours which was almost too much food. I was full the entire day! Attending this crop really got me excited for the one we're doing in January, and made me want to get more organized so I can get more stuff done while I'm there!

Sunday

After church I got caught up in a good book, Friction by Sawyer Bennett and then I started meal prepping for lunches. Tried this recipe for crockpot roasted veggies and 4 hours on high was waaaaayyy too long.

Last night my sister and I finally sat down to watch Final Destination 5. Having loved the first two and experienced the others, we decided we needed to see 5. It brought the whole thing to a close, I think but other than that the gore has gotten a lot more gruesome and I didn't much care for the storyline like I have in the past.

How was your weekend?!


Linking up for weekending with B Loved Boston!

  3. Always nice to support a good cause while doing something you already like to do. I had no idea the Final Destination was still going on.

  12. I haven't scrapbooked in forever and I totally miss it. There's nothing more fun than buying papers and embellishments!! I've never been to a crop but my sister has been to several and always raves about them!
