This weekend was great for our little family as we kicked off our first weekend in October. Although we did some of our usual mundane errands it was exciting and warm to see the grocery shelves filled with pumpkin and Halloween everything along with pumpkins spilling out at every store and farm stand.
Saturday was our home day as we worked on different things around the house. Mike has been collecting pallets and left over lumber from the houses being built in our neighborhood. He spent the day constructing a work bench for the garage. Not bad for using scrap wood, especially when the thing cost literally nothing to build. We ended our night late {yes anything past 10 is late for us} making homemade egg rolls and settling into the couch to watch our Huskers play Michigan State. It was definitely a tough game, but I love the fact that our team never gives up and fights until the very end. 
We woke up to a very chilly Sunday morning and it was the first day we could actually get away with wearing scarves and boots! I think everyone around here is more than ready for fall. Which brings me to the whole point of today's post. We took advantage of the cool, chilly temperatures and did a fire pit last night. Of course when there's a fire pit there has to be either beer, cider, hot cocoa or smores. There's no objection to having more than one either and it's actually encouraged to create your own combo :) 
Last night was a definite smores night. It may be a little ridiculous how much I really love s'mores. I love the classic combo, but they are so much fun to play with and mix different toppings. For our Christmas in July we made s'mores with peppermint dark chocolate and it was divine. We've also mixed in peanut butter cups, another delish mix up.
For a little fall twist we added an apple slice and caramel....can we just say AH-MAZING??!?? I kid you not, they were absolutely divine and a perfect bite of fall in your mouth! 
The possibilities are never-ending and so much fun! I'm dying to try a swap out for the graham, I'm thinking a pumpkin cookie or even a ginger cookie for Christmas! What are some of your favorite smore mix-ups???
