This past Saturday, Steven and I decided to celebrate by having a “Fall Date.” Everything we did Saturday, from the food to the activities, had a Fall theme to it.
Although completely corny (I am not afraid to admit it!), we had such a wonderful time! I highly suggest it to couples who are looking to have a unique and fun date.
I feel like we were able to pack it all into one day! From a wonderful breakfast in the Park Blocks under the falling leaves to the always delicious Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I swear I could have them year round!) We went to Baggenstos Farm where we did a corn maze, went on hay rides, and scoured the patch for our perfect pumpkins! The farm, located in Sherwood, was super adorable and has tons of activities to do for both kids and adults. Later, Steven surprised me with a pumpkin craving kit, scary movies, and Margaritas! (ok, our one departure from our fall-theme, but still my favorite drink!)
For dinner that night, I wanted to make chili. Nothing seems more perfect than a bowl of chili on a cool, Fall evening.
Steven’s Aunt Donna is literally the best home-cook in Oregon and lucky for all us aspiring cooks, she has a blog filled with recipes and tips! Sloppy Jo’s is now a one-stop blog for me and her famous chili recipe is fantastic and super, super easy! It was the perfect dinner to make to end our “Fall Date!”
We have now decided to implement “season dates.” Have any suggestions for a “Winter Date?” Let me know!
