Fall Bucket List 2017

Truth be told, I wasn’t going to do a Fall bucket list this year.  Soccer dominates our lives on the weekends, and it’s already October.  I really wasn’t sure what I would be able to fit in.  But the more I thought about it, I decided I need to MAKE time for fun fall activities.  I mean, it is my favorite season after all!   And so the Fall Bucket List 2017 was created!

1-  Haunted Hayride:  We didn’t fit this in last year so I’m really hoping we can do one this year!  They are so much fun!
2-  Apple Picking:  Fingers crossed.  Apparently the apples here are ripening quicker than usual thanks to the HEAT WAVE we had in September.  I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get to the orchard before all the good apples are gone but we’ll try!
3-  Make apple crisp:  Oh yeah, this is definite!
4-  Go to a pumpkin patch:  Fingers crossed on this one too!  But I think we can fit it in!
5-  Carve pumpkins:  Put this is the DEFINITELY column!
6-  Do a Halloween craft:  Anyone have a good one??
7-  Halloween movie night:  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  Complete with Halloween inspired snacks too!
8-  Trip to Salem, MA:  This has been booked for months!  I am sooo excited!  I’ve always wanted to go to Salem and being able to go during October is going to be awesome!
9-  Weekend away with the hubs:  Coming up this weekend!!  We are headed to the Finger Lakes.  More to come in a future blog post!
10-  Day in VT leaf peeping:  Definitely on the “maybe” list.  Not sure if there will be time but I really want to!  The leaves are always gorgeous in VT!
11-  Attend a fall festival:  If I can locate a local one, I think I can make it happen!
12-  Go trick or treating:  Definitely!  My favorite part of Halloween!

What’s on your list???
