Fall Bucket List

Fall! My favorite time of year. Beautiful leaves, crisp cool air, and all things cozy! I swear the second October hits, I switch out summer scented candles for apple cinnamon & pumpkin spice, swap dresses for sweaters, and turn on the oven almost every day to make something warm and cozy. I try and fit as much into this season as possible, so a much needed Fall bucket list is order! “β€˜Fall-ow” along and you will definitely feel like you did the season right!

Fall Bucket List

  1. Go to the pumpkin patch and carve a pumpkin

  2. Watch all of the classics: Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, Halloween, Ghostbusters, and Young Frankenstein to name a few!

  3. Bake a pumpkin pie from scratch, homemade crust and all

  4. Go apple-picking

  5. Make caramel apples

  6. Visit a local brewery and try some of their seasonal beers

  7. Have a afternoon picnic complete with warm spiked apple cider in a thermos

  8. Make a pumpkin spice latte at home

  9. Have a cozy night in and make a Fall-inspired cheese board, light all the candles and pop open a bottle of red wine

  10. Make pumpkin pancakes and have breakfast in bed

  11. Go to a Halloween costume party

  12. Visit a scary haunted house

  13. Walk around the farmer’s market on the weekend and shop for fresh produce, seasonal flowers, and apple butter

      Breakfast in bed is the best – especially on cold mornings when you just want to be cozy inside! πŸ™‚

    Fall is my favorite time of year, too! If you’re looking for a spooky novel, I recommend The Boy Who Drew Monsters. It’s SO CREEPY!

      Ooh, thanks for the recommendation!! I’m reading Shutter Island right now which is super creepy, but I’ll start the boy who drew monsters as soon as I finish!

    What a great list- I used to not fully appreciate fall because I’m a major summer lover and was so sad to see it go. Now, I appreciate both seasons in their moment! One I hadn’t thought about was trying seasonal craft beers- love that idea!

      I agree Kelsey! I am a Florida girl at heart, but now that I live in Oregon I absolutely love Fall! Pumpkin stouts are my favorite this time of year, so I’m excited to go check some of the breweries out πŸ™‚

      Thanks Erin! My mother-in-law brought them to me from Norway or else I would tell you where they are from! πŸ™‚
