November bucket list

I made a fall bucket list here and I'm proud to say that I crossed almost everything off the list! I thought I'd make another bucket list because apparently that's the only way I get stuff done, AND November doesn't really feel like fall to me. We have crazy bipolar weather where I live. Let me explain. Monday we didn't get above 30 and it snowed all afternoon. Today our high is supposed to be 63. So because the weather changes so drastically from day to day, November doesn't really count as fall in my book. So a new bucket list it is :)

1- Buy a candle (or two) from Bath and Body Works. I admit that this was on my last bucket list but I couldn't find any scents I liked (I know, crazy!) But I found a couple that are so yummy plus their Christmas scents? Too die for, or something! Does anyone know when B&BW's is supposed to have a sale??

2- Make a dang craft! This was also on my last list and it just didn't happen. (I blame my friends because friends don't let friends craft alone!)

3- Clean out our storage room. I mean, pull out every. single. box. and throw stuff away! I guess not everything can be fun and carefree on this list.

4- Set up a little playgroup. I admit that Mia and I have been having a lot of fun with friends but it's been months since we did an actual play date with with all of our friends who have babies within just weeks of Mia! I wouldn't have survived the move to this town without those girls so I want to make more of an effort to not let our busy lives get in the way of our friendships (and our babes friendships)!

5- Bake more pumpkin goodies, of course :) I still can't believe how much I baked (with the fresh pumpkin from my MIL's garden that I pureed, thank you very much!) in the last month and a half. Eric doesn't know what to think about it, either ;)

6- Run a race this month. It's been difficult to get out and run with the cold weather but I really don't want to lose it! I get out of (running) shape so quickly if I slack!

7- Win the Gerber photo contest... but we can't do that without your help! Click this link and vote if you want to help change Mia's future (and share the link with your friends if you'd like)! Please and thank yoooou!!

What's on your bucket list?

I need to paint my house, unpack and then the fun part: Decorate! That candle is also on my list. And I'm running a Thanksgiving 5k, so running a race is also on my list!

Sounds like a great list! I have baking more pumpkin goodies on my list too. I haven't made anything yet this year. Terrible, I know.

I hear ya on the B&BW candles. I want them every year, but I feel like I pay a fortune for them. They are having a 50% off sale on the candles now while supplies last. It's 2 big candles for $22. They are normally $20 a piece.

#2- Get on pinterest and find something Thanksgiving-y (is that even a word?) and make it happen, girl! You can do it!

I still have Christmas candles from B&B that I bought last year but couldn't burn because the smell of them made me so nauseous at the beginning of my pregnancy. Her outfit is adorable!!

Laurie @ Disney 'n Diapers said...

I'm going to B&BW today! I'm excited to get some new scents.. it's my addiction. Hubby jokes that I even have a candle budget lol I've been wanting to do a craft forEVER but it's so hard making the time with an infant!

I entered an ornament swap, so my sister and a few friends are getting together this month to decorate and make ornaments for it (:
Plus I am getting ready for a soup and wine night with my friends (:

Mia is too dang cute!

Ashley said...

I love the Winter Candy Apple candle from Bath and Body works…my absolute favoriteeee!!! I hope they have a sale soon!

I want to do a craft this month, too. I agree…friends should craft with other friends!! :)

Sasha Savy said...

She is so dang cute!!!! And this bucket list is a great idea!

Chelsea said...

I love this list. And by golly, Mia is going to WIN that contest. I'm feeling very passionate about it right now, actually. My house really, really needs some crafts...so if you ever get in a crafty mood call me! I haven't made a trip to Joann's in wayyy too long.

So glad we got to walk for a bit this morning! Excited for tomorrow, too!

Bath and Body Works just had a sale this past weekend - their big three wick candles were 2 for $22! They usually do the sales on the weekends - at least once or twice a month I think! I have the blueberry pumpkin patch and sweet cinnamon pumpkin scents - so yummy! Not sure if they still have fall ones out or if they've switched to Christmas, but check those out if you can!

Sky-Ann @ The Little Button said...

Love your bucket list, what a great idea. November doesn't feel like fall to me as well, we have thanksgiving in October and now this week we are suppose to get snow!!!! I am not ready for snow lol.

Anyways great list and love the photo of your little girl. I am on my way over vote and share the link :)

Sky-Ann @ The Little Button said...

Hey Courtney, I would love to vote for Mia, however was unable to find her pic. This is where I went, just wondering if this was the right place.
Thanks

RadiantKristen said...

I don't think Colorado or Utah have real seasons most of the time... We just have crazy weather that can't make up its mind! If it weren't a horrendously long drive, I would come craft with you!
