AUTUMN BUCKET LIST.


I am a list maker. I love writing out everything I need to complete for a project, or everything I need to pack for a trip, or everything I need to pick up at the grocery store. Some people get overwhelmed by lists because all they can see are the things they have to complete. Not me. Lists keep me organized and less stressed because they help me stay on track! It brings me unexplainable joy to be able to check something off the list. I know, I'm a nerd.

As you all know, autumn is my favorite. And because I get more done when I've made a list, I created my bucket list for my favorite season of the year! There's a lot to do, so I better get busy!

1 | Visit a pumpkin patch.

2 | Carve or paint pumpkins.

3 | Host a game night and smores night. Time to break out that fire pit!

4 | Take a long drive just to look at the leaves.

5 | Make an apple pie.

6 | Complete one fall-inspired craft.

7 | Go for a hike on a crisp autumn day.

8 | Go out of my way to step on crunchy leaves.

9 | Create a gratitude jar.

10 | Make a delicious Thanksgiving dish.

11 | Have a Harry Potter marathon.

12 | Visit the apple orchard.

13 | Sit outside and breathe deeply...maybe go hammocking?

14 | Go stargazing.

15 | Take a getaway to the mountains.

WHAT'S ON YOUR AUTUMN BUCKET LIST?

Yes! Stepping on crunchy leaves. I will forever crush them as hard as I can. And look like a dork while doing it. Doesn't matter... it's FUN!

Chelsea said...

Fall is the most wonderful time! Love your list!

Marissa Giddens said...

Pumpkin painting, baking apple pies and a Harry Potter marathon?!?! Sounds like a great fall bucket list!

For the past two years I've watched all the Harry Potter movies in the month of September and I think it's time to call it a tradition. Now I'm aiming at getting my roommates to watch them for the first time!

AbbeyS said...

Awesome list!!! All of a sudden there are crunchy leaves eeeeverywhere. I loove it.

Megan Sybrant said...

I love how you turned hammock into a verb. I so wish we had apple orchards here!

Christina Main said...

These are great! Can't wait to see things start to check off!

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

Colorado mountains per chance?

Amy @ Set Free said...

3 & 11...totally adding those to my list!!

Jenna Griffin said...

How about, while we are at the mountains, let's stargaze, hammock, step on crunchy leaves, and lots more on this list! Yes?

Paige Williams said...

Best autumn bucket list ever!! It all sounds wonderful.

Amy Hodgdon said...

I love this! ;) Fall has the very best of all traditions! :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Agreed!! P.S. I went kayaking yesterday and thought of you!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Aw thanks!! I can't wait to start checking things off the list!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh my gosh, yes please. I'll bring my hammock!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

DO IT! They are great ones! :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Sigh. I wish I could spend Thanksgiving with you again this year. It was so much fun last time! BUT I will see you 2 weeks later at DISNEY!!!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha!! I forget things all the time. Lists definitely help! Hope you have a fantastic autumn. :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Eeeeps. Me too!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hahaha. I tend to do that with words a lot. :) Our apple orchard isn't one where you go pick your own (I wish it were!) but there ARE orchards there behind the little shop. We always get apple cider slushies and they are DELICIOUS.

Meg McIlvaine said...

I know!! I was leaving my driveway this morning and thought "what is that sound??" It was all the leaves crunching under the tires. THE BEST.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oh that is so fun, Marissa! Make it an official tradition! I think I'm going to start the HP movies this weekend. It's supposed to only be a high of 66 on Saturday! I can't wait!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Thanks girl! I completely agree!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yeah!! It doesn't matte what you look like crunching leaves because it is so fun! :)

Lifeplus1 said...

Have you tried that new game that everyone is talking about... Cards for Humanity...or something like that..?

I'm really interested to find out more. On my birthday list!

We are going to check so many things off my list at the retreat! I told Jenna I'm bringing my Eno...bring a hammock if you have one!! AND we are spending a weekend in the mountains, AND we are going hiking, AND we can totally go stargazing!

Meg McIlvaine said...

My dad has that app and he LOVES it, so I use it on his phone sometimes!

Amy said...

and bring photoshoot stuff - because let's keep it real i'm dreaming of photography on those dang mountains.
fun fact: i was getting ready this morning (before sunrise) and found myself thinking "i will be early to rise saturday and sunday depending on the schedule and may even hike around before the day starts" hahaha.

Meg McIlvaine said...

I was thinking this morning that it would be fun to watch a sunrise one of our mornings there!!!!

I am a list maker too. I have a terrible memory, so I literally need to write things down to get them done - even fun things! This list is super fun and makes me want to go out and celebrate the season! Happy Fall!
