Friday Favorites September 29, 2023: Best Fall Movies


I am so glad the weekend is here. This week was ahem, interesting. Running Daddy noticed that on Wednesday night there was a full moon and it definitely seemed like it this week. 

For today's Friday Favorites, I am linking up with Erika and Andrea and sharing a list of my favorite fall movies. Not Halloween movies...yet, just fall-themed. I am hoping this list broken out into Hallmark fall and non-Hallmark fall gets you into the fall mood and helps you relax this weekend. Grab your softest blanket, your favorite movie snack, your favorite fall beverage and let's fall into movie night. 

Note: this list is not ranked. This is just a list of fall movies that I love and make me think of fall. I will make note here and there of some that I particularly love.


You've Got Mail

This movie is just the perfect fall setting in New York with two delightful main characters. I tell Hockey Guy every time we watch a Tom Hanks movie that Tom Hanks is the greatest actor of his lifetime and a national treasure. He rolls his eyes, but he also agrees.

1. Favorite fall traditions

For fall I am frankly all about the food. I love to hit the farm stand and see when the apples and pears come in and then the fall squashes. Fall food, besides low-country food, is my favorite food.

1. Burt's Bees Pumpkin Spice

I love lip balm and I love pumpkin spice, so when the Burt's Bees Pumpkin Spice lip balm launched I bought it right away. This lip balm is totally silky and has a slight pumpkin spice taste and scent. Yes, please!


Parmesan Chicken Tenders with Creamy Honey Dijon


These chicken tenders are super easy to make and were the perfect after work, after school but before sports dinner the other night. They come together really easily and you probably already have everything to make these in your kitchen right now.

I served these with a simple roasted veggie mix and the veggie pasta from Birdseye and dinner was on the table in about thirty minutes. This recipe is the essence of Good Better Best food.


Joy in the Lasts: Senior Year Edition Flash Back


I have been thinking about the piece I wrote four years ago a lot lately. It's senior year for Hockey Guy and I am not as sad as I probably should be. He has really had the high school career that most of us, his mom included, would dream of. He is happy, he has lots of friends, he is in a school where he is supported, he is a peer mentor and he is a successful athlete. I know not every kid has this experience in high school, and I know that because I was one of those kids that really struggled in high school. I think that because of his experience and my experience being polar opposites, I am once again finding Joy in the lasts.

I am not one bit sad Hockey Guy is in his senior year. I am loving the traditions like Senior Sunrise, I am counting the days until the first puck drop of hockey season, and trying to breathe during the college application process. The one thing I am not doing, is trying to make time slow down. This is his time, not mine and it will all move along for him exactly like it should. It will all fall into place exactly like God wants it to, even though at times lately I am raising my eyebrow a little at a path God is adding for us.
