Autumn Outings

Autumn in Phoenix is always full of awesome festivals, art gallery showings, food truck dates, and time spent wandering around my favorite places in the city. A few weekends back Scott, Scout, and I checked out the annual Tour de Fat Festival at Tempe Town Lake. We thought by the time we got there things would be almost all the way wrapped up, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that so many things were still going on (the band, lots of booths, and people all around)!

While at Tour de Fat we ran into the lovely Chanelle and her hubby, Gabe, and had the best time checking out all of the unique bikes (I saw one that had wheels made out of shoes!) and costumed festival goers (we saw so many crazy costumes and lots of steampunk style)!

After the festival we decided to head down to Mill Avenue in Tempe to visit Short Leash Hot Dogs where they were set up at a small, local Oktoberfest. I was really excited to introduce them to Scout, and I'm already scheming of a way to get Scout to be the featured pup of the week (I LOVE when they create hot dogs (or veggie dogs) around someone's cute pup). Before we headed out Scott got a bratwurst, and I got fried pickles (they make the best!). Afterward we found a nice, grassy spot and enjoyed the cloudy day. It really was such a lovely afternoon!

Tonight I'm finishing up another analysis paper, and still deciding on what to eat for dinner. Do you think candy corn, hot apple cider, and maybe some of those cider donuts I hear so much about sound like a good dinner? Yeah, I do too haha!

What are you up to today? Have you been to any festivals yet this fall, or are you planning on going to any?
