Bring on the Fall...My Bucket List!

Friday, September 23, 2011

Today officially marks the beginning of fall! Can you tell how excited I am? After a summer of temperatures that never seemed to drop down below 90, I am ready and willing for some colder temperatures to settle in to Music City {and apparently rain as well}. I have seen a few of my favorite blogs list their own "fall bucket lists" and I thought it was such a cute idea that I made one myself: 
Visit a pumpkin patch and decorate our finds for the front porch and trick or treaters
Enjoy a bonfire and make smores in our backyard fire pit!
Visit Bell Buckle for the craft fair with Mom
Bake homemade pumpkin bread and deliver to family and friends
Throw a chili party on a gameday Saturday
Go for a Sunday drive with Jeff, just the two of us...
no plans, no set destination, and just see where we end up
Have the girls over to do some type of crafting!
Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Make homemade caramel apples
Go through the closets and drop off unused items to Goodwill
Decorate the house for Halloween and Thanksgiving

So, what's on your bucket list to accomplish for Fall 2011?
 I'd love to hear what everyone is wanting to knock out this season!!  

This weekend, we have lots to knock out, and I am thankful for a quiet weekend at home... stocking up at the grocery store so I can get back to cooking dinner 3-4 nights a week, bringing out the fall decor to spruce up the home, shopping for our gender reveal party goodies {less than a month to go!}, working with our contractor on more design elements, and then just taking time to relax and catch up on TV and football--Boardwalk Empire comes back Sunday night and I can hardly wait!! Happy Friday friends ;)


  1. For starters......... WHHHHAAAAAAAATTTTTT??? Oh, my gosh - I've been out of blog land for two weeks and drop by to see "Bumpdate: 14 weeks!" below and thought it was a JOKE!!, sweet friend!!! So extremely happy and excited for you and your hubby.

    Best blessing ever. Promise.

    Agghhhhhh..........and so the fun begins. Lots of awesome things ahead my dear. I'm absolutely LOVING this time in life and am just a huge dork when it comes to pregnancy / all things baby. I can't get enough of it.

    Happy, happy, happy for YOU!!!! *Oh, and as you've likely picked up on, I'm crazy Type-A and do my research!! So, if you have any questions, etc. I'm happy to share what I learned and went through. I'm sure you have tons of friends who have been there / done that too, but just in case you need anything, ask away!!

  2. So envious becaue I KNOW you will do every single one of these! You inspire me :)

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! What a fabulous bucket list. I wish I could just get in my car and would make it a lot easier to accomplish these things. The things I give up for a life in the city.. Happy Friday! :)

  4. I love the chili party idea... I want to do that this fall, too!

  5. Love your bucket list! And the front of that house is adorable, such cute decorating!!

  6. I love your bucket list! I think it's such a great idea to have these fun fall traditions in place--especially before you have a little babe to share the traditions with! :)

  13. This is such a great idea to make a bucket list for every season. All of these things could definately make it onto an annual traditional list!
