12 Fall Date Ideas For You Basic Maryland Couples, Old Bay Definitely Required

Just because summer is ending, does not mean you can't have fun!


Fall is my FAVORITE season, leaves are changing, the nice crisp, cool air is coming, as well as all the bugs are going away. I know a lot of people like the summertime and the beach, it doesn't mean that fall doesn't have some awesome things to offer. I even came up with some great ideas specifically for my Maryland folk.

1. Pumpkin Carving/Painting

It can be a happy or scary one!

2. Apple Picking

Who does not love a fresh picked apple? Try Weber's Cider Mill Farm!

3. Chill night in Ocean City, MD

See? I told you fall still offers some awesome beach moments.

Halloween movie marathon

You can stay up all night cuddled under blankets and laugh at all the classics that you grew up with.

5. Fall photoshoot

As a photographer, i truly enjoy taking photos of people with all the nice leaves.

6. Make smores at a campfire

Did someone say chocolate?

7. Go on a hayride

This will give you a chance to look at what nature has in store without you having to drive your own car. Rodger's farm might be the one for you.

8. Maryland Renaissance Festival

Are you even a Marylander if you have not gone to Ren Fest? I think not!

9. Drive-In/outdoor movie

Kick back, relax and enjoy you the company of everyone around you watching a movie at Bengie's.

10. Go to a football game

Go Tigers!

11. Camping

Check out some places in Hagerstown!

12. Run/Walk a 5K

Maybe we will just stick with the one mile turkey trot.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.
