Statesman Ties

I was given a tie from Statesman ties to review. All opinions are my own.

Today I wanted to share with you a wonderful gift I came across with. Statesman Ties is a wonderful gift for a special man in your life. A tie that has a meaning behind it. I was so excited to give one to my hubby that I knew he was going to love so much. I really like giving things with special meanings. I’m just that kind of girl. So I knew this was going to be perfect for Gary for his almost 3 year anniversary from getting back from his mission. 

Gary served his LDS mission in Paraguay, and I knew he would want a tie with the colors of the country where he spent those 2 special years of his life. He was so excited when I told him about it, that he kept checking the mail every day for it! When his Paraguay tie arrived, he was so impressed because of how pretty it is. The quality of the tie is so good that he wants to buy some to give as Christmas presents! And I couldn’t agree more with it. They make the perfect present for the holidays.

Fall Bucket List

Dress: similar here  Boots: here

Happy Monday! Thank you so much for all your comments on my anniversary post and on the taco soup recipe. It means so much to me! Today I wanted to share my fall bucket list with you. There are so many things I haven’t had the chance to do in my favorite time of the year. So I thought, why not? Create a bucket list and share it with everybody, that way it can give you all some ideas.

1. Make a pumpkin pie from scratch

What screams fall more than pumpkins everywhere? It is only obvious that I want to make a pumpkin pie. It is just so delicious and perfect for this time of the year and even better if it is home made. You can also try making one, it doesn’t have to be pumpkin. Try making your favorite and surprise your family!

2. Go apple picking

This just sounds like a really fun activity. Go to an apple orchard and pick some apples and later make something fun with them. I haven’t done this one, but I am looking forward to it.

3. Carve pupmkins

This is a must. Especially when Halloween is approaching. I love carving all sorts of designs and putting it by the front door with a candle. It screams Halloween and makes for a good decoration. Try making one and putting it on your porch.

4. Make a “thankful for” list

I’ve seen this on a lot of blogs and I think it’s a great idea. Not only because of Thanksgiving approaching, but because we need to realize how blessed we are and be thankful for it. You can also make a list and ponder of the things you have been able to do, and the goals you have been able to achieve. This is a great activity you can share with your loved ones and close friends.

5. Have a fall inspired photoshoot

What else can you ask for when nature does all the work for you? Fall is perfect for photos because the trees turn into different colors and there are leaves everywhere. It is a perfect setting to take some pictures. I love taking photos in every season, but fall definitely is my favorite one to capture great memories.
