Happy Monday! This past weekend Katie and I took our second trip to the apple orchard this season, and we had a blast! We tried out a few DIY pumpkin decorations that we found on Pinterest, and Katie’s went a little bit better than mine did. I was a bit ambitious!? Painting a pumpkin plaid takes a lot more time than you’d think, okay? With enough time, I’ll finish, I swear.

The forecast called for rain while we were at the orchard, so we wore our rain boots and bundled up. I’ve been obsessed with this plaid open-front poncho I found at Old Navy, so I’m wearing it ever chance that I get. It’s comfy, warm and easy to throw on. Apparently I’m not the only one obsessing, because when Ty and I got home from buying my plaid poncho, I spotted it on a fellow blogger on Instagram! Ponchos and plaid. What screams fall more than that?

As for Sunday, I’m pretty sure I never left my bed for more than an hour, but I’m a strong believer that we all need those kinds of days. In fact, be sure to check out one of my favorite bloggers Leah over at My Favorite Adventure, who just wrote a great post on taking care of yourself. It’s definitely a nice little reminder to carve some time out of our busy schedules for ourself.
