A Fall Bucket List

Since I completely failed on making a summer bucket list this year, I thought I’d make one for fall (because why not, everyone is doing it!). Even though I am a list person, I am usually not very good at making a bucket list and then trying to check things off during a particular season, but I am always inspired when I read other people’s lists and how much they were able to do and check off. 

Since temperatures have been dropping (ever so slightly) and we had the first thunderstorm coming through, I am getting more excited for a new season. Fall is really the nicest time of year around here in Northern California. 

So, without further ado, a things-I’d-like-to-do-this-fall list:

+ Decorate for fall (I rarely do)

+ Visit a pumpkin patch

+ Go to Apple Hill

+ Watch Halloween movies with J (just the non-to-slightly-scary ones though)

+ Use my crockpot

+ Bake apple or berry crisp

+ Participating in #NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) again in November, wanna join me?

+ Burn a bunch of yummy-smelling fall candles

+ Getting a head start on Christmas gifts

+ Got to the Causeway Classic football game (that’s an old tradition with J and me)

+ Go for a Halloween walk around the neighborhood to look at the decorations

+ Find more time for knitting

+ Drink seasonal drinks (hot chocolate and all the teas!)

What is on your Fall bucket list? 

  1. I love seeing others’ bucket lists but also rarely make them myself. All I really want to accomplish this fall is moving/settling in. But that’s a big to do! We do have some other fun things planned, like a Halloween Trolley ride with some of my mom friends and their kids and the annual pumpkin carving party with Phil’s college friends. We usually host but this year someone else is taking over since we close on our new house 10/25 and I travel that following week for work. I’m bummed that we won’t get to host it one last time in our house but I know I’ll be glad we aren’t hosting when that weekend rolls around!

  2. Pick leaves with Eva, press and frame them. And send them to Nathen and family.

  3. Yeah for bucket lists. Yours has some cool stuff on it. All the best for crossing many things off. I wonder what a “apple or berry crisp” is… As you already read on mine I’ll plan to do the NaBloPoMo again.

  4. I’m glad you’re doing NaBloPoMo – always fun to see you in my reader every day! :)

    I’m not sure what I want to do this fall. It’s still hot in Florida, although we’re getting some 80-degree days which feel like HEAVEN after the oppressive heat and humidity. I’m definitely going to burn some fall candles and watch a Halloween movie, but other than that, not really sure!
