Falling for Fall Photos Challenge

The Instagram photo challenge: #fallingforfallphotos is finished! Some of days were challenging (I almost forgot to do a couple of the posts), and a few of the pictures are a little bit of a stretch in keeping with the category of the day, but nevertheless I posted a something for every day. It was fun and I love looking back to see all the memories and moments associated with each picture. It’s like a mini fall scrapbook!

I’m linking up this post with Stephanie at wifemommyme.com where you can see how all the other participants portrayed each category.  It’s really amazing how many different pictures and stories can correlate with the same daily themes.

Here is my #fallingforfallphoto challenge favorite photos with the captions I wrote on Instagram to tell the story of each post:

{Day 2-Comfort Food}

comfort-foodI had it all planned out, I was going to make pork chops and Mac and cheese and greens beans with apple crisp for dessert for today’s comfort food photo challenge….well life happened and we ended up eating sandwiches and leftovers for dinner but I still managed to make the apple crisp so it will have to do for day 2 of the#fallingforfallphotos challenge!

{Day 4-Outside}

outsideIs there anything better when you’re a little kid than roaming along a grassy path in the sunshine surrounded by endless rows of apple trees and filling your bucket with ripe fruit you picked all by yourself? Our first orchard experience was a success!

{Day 5-My View}

{Day 6-Sweet Treat}

Football parties call for chocolate frosting and pound cakes, shaped appropriately for football of course.

{Day 7-Pumpkins}

{Day 8-Cozy}

Fall for fall photo Challenge

Did you notice there were multiple football posts in this challenge? We do love our college football! It’s one of the most exciting parts about fall. That and cute little fashionistas like my daughter in her boots and red sweater with a mess of curls.
