It’s Officially Fall!

Although I consider myself a summer weather kinda girl, I must admit that a few of my favorite things come in the fall! The longer I live in Ohio, the more I learn to appreciate all fantastic things that come with this time of the year…


1. The change in the colors of the  leaves is definitely one of the best parts of        fall. All the different shades of red and orange are absolutely breath taking.

2. Pumpkin spice lattes – DELICIOUS!

3.  Apple picking is an all time favorite! I haven’t had the chance to go this
year, but it’s always an adventure. –> As a result of apple picking I get to bake apple pie, apple muffins, apple crisp, baked apples…

4. Crisp Air – although I LOVE warm weather, fall days where the temperature is perfect and this air is crisp and refreshing are always appreciated.

5. Scarves, my all time favorite. First off, they’re a perfect addition to any outfit.  Second, they keep me nice and warm !

6. Halloween – I love handing out candy to the little tricker treaters…AKA I love having an excuse to buy candy to eat.

7.  Now that the weather is cooler, its the perfect time to start enjoying all those                                                        warm foods and drinks that you couldn’t enjoy during summer -chili, tomato soup, hot cocoa, warm apple cider…etc!

So basically, how could you not love fall?

UPDATED: A messy home makes me anxious!!

Our place is my version of a DISASTER!!! I feel like EVERY room is a mess. I’m pretty sure that a normal person would walk in here and laugh at me and tell me I’m crazy, because really it’s not that bad.  So, I’m a little OCD, what’s the big deal?  Sure I’m having a little trouble breathing as I walk from one room to another making lists of all things I need to do.  And yes, I am pacing back and forth as I make sure that my list of things to do is complete before I can start, because if I start cleaning before I complete my list it might throw everything off.  Okay, so maybe I am a little more than a little OCD, but thats okay…I accept this flaw of mine and well, there’s nothing I can do about it.  Time to clean. Such an exciting thought.

Thankful Tuesdays

Life is crazy, so crazy that we all tend to get caught up in our routines and list of to-do’s that we forget to take a second and remember everything that we have to be thankful for.  I especially have so much to be thankful for in my life and I never want to use “life” as an excuse for not remembering what those things are…

I am thankful for

– Our incredible condo

– My husband

– ALL my friends and family that love and support me

– Diesel, because he is the greatest dog in the world

– My acceptance into Ohio State’s dental school

– All the materialistic things I have: phone, computer, car…etc

– My health

– My good hair (not going to lie, I have great hair)

… and SO much more.

A list of to do’s in Columbus:

Although I lived in Columbus for a few years prior to living in Michigan, I never really explored the city.  I think it’s time do all the “touristy” things this city has to offer. While exploring I hope to find the best places for food, drinks, and entertainment =)

1. North Market:  I hear this is an excellent place for fresh fruits, veggies, and even yummy cooked meals from various countries!

2. Pita Hut N’ Grille:  The best shawarma and falafel in Columbus?  I’ll be the judge of that!

3. Hot Air Balloon Festival: Um, I love hot air balloons!! How could you not?

4. The Book Loft: One of the largest bookstores in the country, it has expanded to 32 rooms and contains nearly 750,000 books!!

5. Gallery Hop: On the first weekend of every month, art galleries remain open late to show their latest collections.

6. German Village: It’s an old historical village, that German’s once lived in.

7. Clintonville Farmers Market: I discovered this a few years ago actually, it’s an incredible farmers market.  The most incredible part of it is the fresh donuts the Amish make.  They basically melt in your mouth, okay so they’re pretty much the BEST donut I have ever tasted.

8. Alum Creek: There’s a doggie park here, it apparently has a large lake just for dogs.  Diesel would be the happiest dog in the world here.

9. State Fair:  I just want to eat my way through the fair: funnel cakes, fried cheese on a stick, elephant ears, ice cream, corn dogs, cotton candy…

10. Columbus Museum of Art:

11. Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Garden

12. Brewery District: Many bars and restaurants with excellent ratings in this area.

13. Jennis Ice Cream: Fantastic  ice cream!

I’m sure there’s a lot more to explore in Columbus, but I think this is a good start! If anyone has any other recommendations, please share :)!
