What are you up to this weekend? We’ve rounded up 10 fun things to do for your weekend! Share your favorite things to do in fall in the comments below!
02. Read Little Fires Everywhere
A Reese Witherspoon book club pick, Little Fires Everywhere is the story of several drastically different families whose lives intersect. The uncovered secrets and lives mixed with a little bit of a whodunnit will keep you glued to the pages (or the digital pages, if you have a kindle.)
03. Try a butternut squash spread recipe
Spreads. Breads. Wine. Can there be a better combination? (No.) Daou Vineyards serves an incredible mesi platter with a butternut squash and walnut spread that is to die for. NYTimes has a winter squash and walnut spread that looks easy if you can’t hop over to Paso Robles this weekend.
4. Make your reservation for the Caymus wine dinner
Make a reservation for the October 10th Ruth’s Chris Tastemaker wine dinner, which features Caymus Vineyards wines paired with chef-prepared courses. This is a national event, and available at most Ruth’s Chris restaurants!
5. Listen to this podcast
Rebecca Minkoff’s podcast, Super Women, features interviews with entrepreneurs. The latest episode is the founder of Farm Girl Flowers, which she started from her San Francisco apartment. Loved her interview with Katie Couric, too! What a cool company!
6. Watch Hustlers on the big screen
Katie Couric’s interview with Julia Stiles will make you want to go to the movies this weekend. She says, “I love that I am playing the character who comes in and says “Hey, I’m not here to take advantage of you or exploit you. I actually want to know who you are as a person, and what your side of the story is.” And she’s speaking to a group of women who have only ever been looked at as commodities, but who also have this complex and fascinating story to tell.”
7. Get a taste of the pumpkin life
Chowhound reviews 29 pumpkin spice items from Pumpkin Spice Cheerios to Pumpkin Spice Almonds. Whether or not you’re all about that pumpkin spice, it’s fascinating to see how many odd items are turning to the fall flavor phenomenon!
08. Pour a glass of bubbly
Saint Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc Brut is a peachy, crisp sparkling and the perfect way to say “cheers” to the weekend. Pair with the butternut squash spread, yoga pants, and a classic movie like When Harry Met Sally.
09. Plot out your next home design project
Even if you’re not in nursery-planning mode, Jessi’s design tips for creating a baby’s room on a budget with non-baby items and designer swaps is a must-read.
Myrtle Beach this Weekend
Get your tickets for the Neil Diamond Fall Tribute Concert at Brookgreen Gardens – originally scheduled the week Hurricane Dorian decided to visit. The first show is this Thursday, September 26th.
