The Autumn Bucket List.

by katelin on September 21, 2018

You guys, Fall is finally coming.

At least it’s supposed to. This weekend marks the beginning of Fall but we’re still supposed to have weather in the 90s for the next week or so (blech). Despite that, I’m revving up and ready for all things Fall (except allergies, my Fall allergies can suck it).

And this year, with two kids in tow, I feel like I’m even more excited about all the things we can do and I want to do. So alas, here is my Autumn Bucket List:

– Visit a pumpkin patch – whether than be our favorite Underwood Farms or trying out a new one like Tanaka or Irvine.

– Carve some pumpkins. I’m honestly drawing a blank on if we carved pumpkins last year and it’s maddening. Although I don’t love all the mess and goo, it’s fun and I want Riley to love it.

– Bake! Once it cools down I can’t wait to start baking with Riley again. Banana bread, pumpkin bread, muffins, anything. My KitchenAid mixer is calling my name.

– Halloween, I have every intention of Rhys dressing up in Riley’s costume from his first Halloween (a pumpkin) but alas I also want to capitalize on matching costumes while the boys are too young to argue.

– Apple picking. I’ve always wanted to visit Riley’s Farm and perhaps this will finally be the year that I do.

– Related: I would like to eat all of the honeycrisp apples. ALL OF THEM.

– Halloween movies. Although Riley is a little too young for Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic, I will 100% be watching them this Fall. As for Fall movies with Riley, you can bet your bottom I’ll let him watch every cartoon Fall/Halloween special there is.

– Send out cards. I love real mail. And I feel like before the madness of Christmas cards, good ole Fall cards to say hello would be fun to do as well.


I seriously love Fall. Bring me all the candles and scarves and pumpkin and candy corn. What’s on your bucket list this season?


happy weekend!
