Scott's Orchard

Last weekend, we headed upstate 35 minutes or so from Huntsville to Scott's Orchard, which grows several different varieties of peaches and apples. It's just the beginning of apple season here, and we were thrilled to pick our own! We signed up for the half-hour tour followed by apple picking. Parker and his buddies had tons of fun on this hay bale play area while we waited for the tour to start.

Plant-Based Snacking

This post is sponsored by Pearls® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I'm always looking for easy, healthy snacks that can be tossed into my purse for whenever they might be needed. I found such the thing with Pearls Olives to Go!® In addition to kalamata, green and black olives, they also have infused flavors! Parker is a fan of the Italian Herb while I prefer the spicy Sriracha. 

Crazy Rich Asians

I've read (and loved) the entire The Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy. I read Kevin Kwan's first book, Crazy Rich Asians, several years ago. It follows New Yorker Rachel Chu and her trip to meet her boyfriend's Singaporean family for the first time. She assumed he came from a humble background, but what awaited in Singapore was nothing short of a palace complete with private planes, and a family that was equal to Singaporean royalty. It was such a fun read so I was super excited when they announced that a movie based on the book was being made!

Life Lately | Almost Fall Y'all

Happy September, and Happy Football Season! Parker's new (K-12) school had their home opener football game last weekend. It was also "Lower School Night" and Parker even had the opportunity to go out on the field before kickoff!
