And just like that, today marks the first day of fall. It’s the season of apple cider, pumpkin patches, hayrides, and cozying up by the fire, and I couldn’t be more excited. So I’m pulling out my notepad, or in this case, blog post, and making a fall “to do” list.
MY FALL BUCKET LIST:
- Go to a Pumpkin Patch and buy enough great big pumpkins to line our brand new front porch steps. (Here’s last year’s visit.)
- Go to our first apple orchard. (Check!)
- Plan a picnic where we actually pack a yummy lunch, in a basket, and go somewhere beautiful.
- Transition our home for the season. I’m breaking out the blankets, pinecones, scented candles (I’ve heard this scent is incredible!), and fall décor.
- Go all out for Halloween this year.
- Plan a movie-viewing party in our backyard. I’ve always wanted to do this, complete with a drop-down screen (i.e., a white sheet hung over our back deck) and I’m determined to try to make it happen this fall.
- Find the perfect shade of vampy lipstick.
- Serve spiked cider at a party. Always a huge hit.
- Go for a walk with the family along the trail by our house and pick our favorite fall leaves to decorate our dining room table.
- Learn to bake a few recipes I’ve had on my must-try list. (Plus, ALL of the pumpkin everything.)
- Take a trip to the Farmers Market to check out all of the new things they have to offer for fall.
- Get creatives with pumpkins. There are so many awesome pumpkin DIY’s out there and I’m definitely going to try out a few this season. (Remember these glitter-dipped pumpkins?)
- Go through our closets and finally donate clothes hubby and I haven’t worn in more than a couple of years.
- Plan a fall dinner party.
- Take a staycation somewhere local, complete with hotel or Bed & Breakfast stay so that we really feel like we’re getting away.
- Use our fireplace for the first time. (And toast marshmallows, naturally.)
What’s on your fall bucket list? Do you have any “must do” activities in the fall?
