Friday Favorites - 9/19

TGIF!  Whew!  Today couldn't have come soon enough.  I am SO ready for a weekend.

Here are some of my favorites this week:

Tomorrow we are taking our annual trip apple picking.  It is my very favorite thing about September.  We all look forward to it.  Here are the kids last year with baby Annie:
 Here we are in 2012 (Lily was REALLY into taking pictures!  Ha!):
 In 2011 with baby Lily:
We go to Seven Ponds Orchard in Watermill.  It's such a great place.  Can't wait! 

Another favorite is making some delicious treats with all of the apples we pick.  Last year we made some really delicious treats - applesauce, Apple Banana Bread, Salted Caramel Apple Crumb Bars, and my favorite lunch salad - Nutty Apple Salad.

This year I have bookmarked a few new treats to try -  Apple Spice Cupcakes. Apple Oatmeal Bars, and Salted Caramel Apple Cups.

Our favorite post-apple picking dinner is Roast Kielbasa Supper.  I make once a year, when we get home from apple picking.  So simple.  So delicious.

How could this weather not be a favorite?  I love it.  I wish it could be like this year round.  

Derek Jeter is a true class act.  He has brought so much to New York and the Yankees.  Although it's time, it's sad to see him go.  I have been enjoying all of the tributes to him this season, but this video is a favorite:

Happy Friday!

Friday Favorites - 9/12


So excited for the new fall TV season.  It's one of the best parts about September.

My DVR will be on overdrive in the next few weeks as I record my favorite returning shows and try out a lot of the new shows.  If a new show seems interesting to me or is getting a lot of hype, I DVR it.  I usually try to stick with it for at least 3 episodes.  If I don't love it after that, then I stop watching.  Needless to say, my DVR will be chock full.  

The farewell season???  So sad!  I don't want it to end.  I love this show!  I will miss those Bravermans.

Grey's Anatomy
I don't think it's a very good sign that it's been moved to 8:00.  Hope it's not the last season.
The Middle
I think this is the funniest show on TV.
Modern Family
The other funniest show.  Hysterical.

I don't love this show as much as some of the others, but I still watch.  I like the music and the drama.

Dancing With the Stars
I have watched every season.  I love it.  I think it's so much fun.  Now Maddie is really into it too.  We have so much fun watching it together.
The Biggest Loser
I think this season is so interesting by having all former athletes.  I love seeing their transformation over the months.  

I know I am WAY late to the party on this one, but I just finished season 1 of Scandal and I love it!  I'm hoping to get caught up on seasons 2 and 3 in the next few weeks so I can watch it this season.
The Voice
I watch this one inconsistently, but I do like it.  I think Pharell and Gwen Stefani will be fun judges.

I have several shows I want to check out this season.  These are the ones that I think will be the most promising.

How To Get Away With Murder
Another Shonda Rhimes show? Love Grey's Anatomy and Scandal.  I'm in.
