Weekending | All the Fall Fun

Happy Monday friends!! What a weekend - we soaked up all the beautiful weather and did all the Fall things, basically in one day!! I'm pretty pumped for the week - Sia concert tomorrow night & off to Nashville for an extended long weekend, but before that - here's how we took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend! 
Nashoba Valley Winery is our one stop shop for all things fall! Gary and I have been going here for the last 5 years and it's never disappointed. About 30 miles outside of the city you get to take in the amazing views of the valley, get all the Fall foliage you could want, go apple and pumpkin picking AND taste wine! 
Nashoba Valley Winery
The trick to getting the most out of your time there, is trying to beat the crowd - so get there early! We started with the wine tasting at 11:00 AM which is perfectly acceptable if you ask me! For $8/pp you get a variety of wines to sample & a wine glass - which we have way too many of now! You can also do the tour, but since we've done it before - we just get straight to the good stuff! 
Lunch at Nashoba Valley Winery
You could eat lunch at J's restaurant or preorder a packed lunch to enjoy a picnic outside! Last year I discovered that you could preorder and it's a game changer! The views of the vineyard are a perfect backdrop! 
Apple Cider Donut
Before apple picking you have to get an apple cider donut (or two)!! Then it's time to get your apple pick on! 
Apple Picking in New England
This was the first year we used the apple picking poles and I fully admit Gary was way better at it than me! 
Nashoba Valley Apple Picking
We went throughout the orchard and while most of the trees to the front were picked through - there was a great section in the back, where the poles came in handy, that had the best looking apples!! Now the fun of actually eating them and baking a pie or two! 
I usually have lofty goals of carving these fabulous pumpkins, but poor Gary ends up doing about 75% of the work and then they don't keep - so we opted for 6 smaller pumpkins of different colors and varieties to keep around the house and use as decorations! Last year they stayed until after Thanksgiving - talk about a great ROI on a $6 investment! 
Core Power Yoga Ink Block
Sunday morning I joined Core Power Yoga on the roof deck of Ink Block for a fun outdoor yoga session! I think I've said more than once that I am not a yoga person...something about not being able to still my mind, but maybe acupuncture has changed me because it somehow "clicked" and I felt like I could be a tree and downward dog with the best of them! Just kidding - far from being able to balance on one leg, but at least now I feel like I should be able to handle it! 
Public Garden in Boston
A long-ish stroll through the park, much needed mani/pedi & lots of prepping for the week ahead rounded out Sunday! 
After being on the go for the last few months, I have to say this was one of my favorite weekend's out of the entire year!! A lot of fun and relaxation! Stay tuned for a little fashion post this week! How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!

  3. Love the apple picking! And every time I read your blog I get city-living envy! I think it would be so awesome to live in the middle of it all and be able to walk everywhere. And also have so many things going on around you...like yoga on a rooftop! Definitely not available in small town Alabama haha!

  4. So much Fall fun in one post! Nashoba winery sounds perfect to enjoy the fall weather, sip on some wine and enjoy the views. It looks beautiful there. Yayy to Nashville next weekend!

  5. That place sounds like the coolest - wine, apple pick, AND pumpkins all in once place?! Sign me up! I have never been a yoga person, either, but I feel like I need to give it a try again - especially if it's on a gorgeous rooftop! Happy Monday!

  6. what a fun weekend! apple picking sounds so fun and that apple cider donut looks amazing! I haven't had one since I was young and living in michigan! Such a fun fall weekend y'all had!

  7. The same thing happens to me with pumpkins; I think I can make cool-looking designs, but I usually just end up making a basic jack-o-lantern. I would rather use small ones as decorations and not cut them. I have never been apple-picking, it's on my list of things to do one fall. That park is lovely.

  8. A winery AND pumpkin and apple picking all in one?! So cool! And you're right-- that's a great ROI on your $6 investment 😉

  14. What a great fall filled weekend!!! So jealous of your apple (and donut ;) ). I hear you on the yoga. I hated it for ages, and then about a year ago, I became hooked!

  15. Happy Monday! That picture of you two by the apple trees is so cute! I'm really connecting with your image from Boss Babe! I'm hoping to follow that mantra more this week.

  28. Looks like a perfect fall weekend. I've never seen these apple picking poles before. Granted, I haven't gone in forever. I like the idea of just using smaller pumpkins for decorations. Happy Monday!

  29. Okay totally jealous of your weekend! I have been wanting to find a cool local winery (after pregnancy I guess, womp womp) and go apple picking! So perfect for fall.

  30. I'm so glad you had a wonderful weekend, beautiful! I saw a sneak peek on IG the other day and it looked like you had such a great time at the winery! We had plans on going apple picking this past weekend, too, but then as you know, I got sick and totally ruined the plans :( We're hoping we can go next weekend and bring my mother-in-law who's never done anything like this before (she's from Guatemala) so I'm sure she'll love it! Now, you have me craving apple cider donuts, haha. Thank so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead!

  32. Nashoba looks like a ton of fun. i have never been apple picking, those poles look legit and i could 100% guarantee i'd be horrible with them and KC would be better too haha. i'm glad yoga is clicking for you, must be the acupuncture. a wine tasting is totally acceptable at 11am, i mean it's not like you're drinking entire bottles ;) those doughnuts looked so good, i went out and got doughnuts from the grocery after i saw your picture and i totally blame you. haha! but they were just plain and chocolate iced, definitely not sustenance like your apple cider ones haha.

  33. Yalls weekend looks absolutely fabulous! So fun! And that apple picker thingy? So nifty!

  39. Oh my goodness, your weekend sounded absolutely perfect and like the best fall weekend in New England! I love that you got to pick apples and pumpkins, and you're totally right about it being perfectly acceptable to wine taste that early in the morning! I hope that your Monday is off to a great start!

  42. So glad you two had a relaxed weekend, especially after the 2 back to back weekends of wedding fun. We are hoping to visit a pumpkin patch this weekend, hoping it doesn't keep raining...if so, it will ruin our plans. The donut sounds so darn good!! Hope you are having a great Monday!

  48. I MUST try an apple cider donut at some point! Gah, they look so good! We were wanting to go apple picking in the mountains this week, but all of the orchards said that they are no longer having the You-Pick because they've all been picked. I'm SO sad!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The most perfect Fall weekend! Have fun is that orchard and with wine and everything!

  67. When we were at the orchard a few weeks ago I was trying to explain to my husband how weird it is that orchards here don't have donuts! We always had them growing up and they're soo good, definitely something I miss here! We started getting mini pumpkins too-- I was going to make them glittery or something, but didn't feel like even the mess of that! haha.

  68. Wine, pumpkins, apples, yoga...sounds like the perfect weekend. So I have a question...how did you find a good acupuncturist (is that a word?!) and how did you know what it'd help you with?

  69. Looks like perfect weather for a beautiful weekend! You are just so photogenic...have never seen a bad picture. :)
