Gardner Village (with bloggy friends)- Check!

First- Remember that Pumpkin Project I mentioned?? Well it's UP! Just click HERE. :)

One of my favorite fall activities (it was on my Fall To-Do List- which by the way, I've completed all but TWO items on that list!! Go me!) is to visit a wonderful place called Gardner Village. They have such fun Halloween displays, the scenery is Fall perfection, and wonderful shops. I decided the best way to do that this year was with some of my local bloggy friends!

We first met for a delicious lunch at Gardner Villages wonderful restaurant- Archibalds. Then we strolled around the shops and enjoyed the crisp cool Fall air (or froze in it... I had on- thick tights, a long sleeve undershirt, my chambray top, a thick dress, warm boots, and a warm vest- and i still froze!).

The main attraction in October would be their "witches" that are everywhere. They're all so funny and different. There's a hoola-hooping witch, witches playing baseball, and even a witch using the outhouse... :/

Look at this- Fall perfection, am I right?!

They also have a candy shop that is a must see. It's filled with all of your favorite old fashion candy as well as fresh fudge in a variety of flavors!

It was such a fun afternoon with these ladies! I'm so glad they were able to make it (especially those who ran over during their lunch break!). I hope you are all having a FABULOUS week! Are you ready for Halloween?? What are you going to be?! Keep voting on my costume poll. I can't wait to see what the result will be! haha!

P.S. DON'T FORGET to enter this weeks giveaway from Printed Peaks! It's seriously AMAZING!!!

What fun! It looks gorgeous there. It still looks like summer here in Florida...probably because it's still 80 degrees! You guys look so cute and fall-esque. Your outting at looks pretty much like my dream Saturday afternoon. Glad you had such a fun time :)

Ashley said...

Oh my gosh Gardner Village looks like so much fun! I wish I knew of a place like that here in Florida... I'd love to get more in the holiday spirit by going someplace fun like that.

I think this is the first year in a while that I'm not really excited about Halloween. We're probably not dressing up, and I have to work basically every evening. We might carve pumpkins though... I always love that.

I cannot wait to see the results of your costume poll. (:
