APPLE Picking!

Have you ever been apple picking?
I have had never been. Husband and I made plans every Fall, but timing just never worked out. As one of our anniversary dates, we finally went apple picking this year. It was the perfect date and a great way to kick off the Fall season. Plus, it was made even better because we were able to take our pup along with us. 

Husband was completely in charge of planning this date, and he did the best job. My favorite part about the orchard we visited is that you could actually climb the trees. And the best apples are clearly at the top so that's exactly where we picked from! 
there were plenty of ladders throughout the orchard... 
but if you're adventurous like us, you don't always use them. We felt like little kids, climbing trees and stuffing our faces with sweet delicious apples. 
Welcome Fall!

What do you Wear Apple Picking? 
While grabbing a plaid shirt would have been the obvious choice, I'm glad that I didn't because I would have matched every other girl there. Instead, I focused on being comfortable and unique while wearing pieces that would help transition into Fall.

Loved Apple Picking with my two favorite Guys
Gala Apples...McIntosh...Cortlands..Golden Supreme...Empire Apples. 
You name it, PJ loved them All! 

We definitely saved the best part for last with these Apple Cider Donuts covered in Cinnamon Sugar. We ate half a dozen of these along with the freshest caramel apples I've ever tasted on our ride home
And we have been eating apples non-stop since our little adventure, which is perfect because you know what they say about an apple a day...I've already baked an apple crisp and an apple pie {from scratch of course}. Plus, we still have about 10pounds of apples left...definitely not a bad problem to have. I may just have to try my hand at apple cider donuts next! 

Linking up with Thoughts for Friday


  1. Those pictures of PJ are so cute! And I am loving your crossbody and your shoes!

    1. The PJ pictures are definitely my favorite. We probably have an unhealthy obsession with our dog so we take him everywhere with us

  2. Hi Jasmine,

    Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm so happy you did because I am excited to checkout your budget category. I am looking to revamp my wardrobe and am definitely on a budget. I think the outfit you chose for apple picking is great! I love your white pants, and I am a sucker for army green! I haven't been apple picking before but it looks like so much fun!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Im doing a budget update soon so this is perfect timing! And do go apple picking if you ever get a chance, it's a blast

  3. Looks like so much fun-but scary! I would have to pick all the low hanging apples. I love all the apple-y things you have made and will get to make! Trish - tales from trish

    1. Thankfully the trees weren't too tall but the ladders definitely were not the greatest. I felt more secure when I just climbed the tree branches because the ladder sometimes wobbled but the tree wasn't going anywhere lol
