I have this weird thing where I really can’t decide if my favorite season is summer or fall. It’s a major toss up. I guess they’re tied? There are so many fun things to do in each season and so many wardrobe changes I look forward to with each. Since fall in Utah is notoriously short before it decides to go on and be winter (boo!) I’ve got my bucket list all set up–hopefully we can accomplish everything before the first snow fall…which honestly here you just never know when that might happen. While I’ve lived in Utah the first snow has come as early as the day before Halloween. Yikes. But anyway, here’s my bucket list!
1. Visit the pumpkin patch
2. Go apple picking
3. Make pumpkin pie
4. Make caramel apples
5. Have a hot dog roast over the fire pit and make s’mores
6. Carve a pumpkin with Joshua
7. Roast pumpkin seeds
One thing I love about fall weather is the rain. It’s nice to curl up inside on the couch with a snuggly blanket, a good book, and mug of apple cider. But when you do have to venture outside in the rain, you might as well do it in style! I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Hunter Rain Boots for a while and I’ve teamed up with 13 other bloggers to bring you the chance to win your very own pair! You get to choose the color of course!

What is on your fall bucket list? What color of Hunter wellies have you been dying over?
I’m excited to introduce you to Martha Kate from Seasons with the Strattons! This girl is so sweet and genuine with a beautiful heart after God. She’s honest enough to admit her faults and share about embrace weakness. She’s got a love for cooking and shares delicious recipes like this killer Beef & Broccoli. On top of that, she has the sweetest love story–she met her baseball playing husband when she was just 14! Read on to get to know her better. :)
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging after I got engaged to keep friends and family updated on the start of our new chapter as husband and wife and our new journey in Minor League Baseball. I mainly blogged just to send updates on my husband’s baseball career and our travels associated with Minor League life. It wasn’t until the beginning of this year that my blog turned into more of a creative outlet and a way to share how God is using our Minor League journey rather than just a place to keep friends and family updated. Seasons with the Strattons has really turned into one of my passions and not just a journal style blog.
Where is your favorite place you’ve traveled?
We travel a lot with my husband’s baseball career, but my favorite place we have gone is still Saint Lucia. It is absolutely gorgeous and I would go back this second if I could! We had the best week there right after our wedding in January of 2013 for our honeymoon. I’m hoping an anniversary trip back to Saint Lucia might happen one day!
What is your best Halloween costume?
I’ve had a lot of great Halloween costumes over the years thanks to my mom’s picks during childhood. But my most recent favorite is when my now-husband and I dressed up as old people for a Halloween party in college. We were always known as the “parents” of our friend group, so dressing up like grandparents was only fitting.
What’s your favorite dessert?
My favorite dessert is a hard one to narrow down. I love anything chocolate, but I’m also a sucker for any type of fruit crisp or cobbler. I also have a huge obsession with Tiramisu and any type of ice cream. So I guess to sum it up, anything sweet!
Which TV series are you currently watching?
I’m loving the fact that all of my shows started back this month. My current favorites are Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Law & Order SVU, and Nashville. I’m not a huge movie person, so TV shows are my thing.
