Fall 2014 bucket list

Moccasins c/o Freshly Picked Bow headband c/o Her Joyful Studio
Our happy mail days, the stormy weekend that dropped the temps and my Halloween decor are proof that Fall really is officially here ;) I had so much fun crossing items off our Fall bucket list last year that I couldn't resist making another one... especially now that Mia's a little older and understands a little better. I'm really looking forward to all the fun Eric and I are going to have with Mia!

1- Go to a farm and visit the animals (plus purchase some yummy veggies/pumpkins for baking)!

2- Get crafty and make Mia's Halloween costume (just kidding, I'll only be making a small part of it, ha!)

3- Bake Fall goodies!

4- Pumpkin patches. Wagon hay rides. Hot chocolate. etc

5- Paint pumpkins with Mia to put on our door step. (This one is a big deal for me because it's so hard for me to let Mia get dirty, but I know she will love it! Also, I don't even know what paint to buy? Ha! Guess I'll be googling!)

6- Take Mia trick-or-treating, even if it's just to a couple homes. I know she would LOVE it!

7- I just realized that I should probably try and teach Mia to say "Trick or Treat" :) Wish me luck!

8- Clean out my gosh, dang home! I put this on every bucket list yet I never make it happen. I need to yard sale my junk asap!

9- Try and prep for Christmas and Mia's birthday as much as possible. December is the craziest month for me now that Mia's birthday falls during the month, along with Christmas! So I'm really hoping to have mostly everything taken care of before the month even begins.

10- Soak up every second with our quickly growing babe! Last year we really had a blast, but in the back of my mind I was heart broken with every second that passed, knowing that we were getting closer and closer to her first birthday. I don't know why I had such a difficult time with that milestone, but it really killed me inside! So this Fall? My goal is to not have a care in the world and look at the world through Mia's eyes. This is gonna be the funnest Fall/Halloween, ever!

You are going to love trick or treating this year! When Olivia was this age we said she could do three houses and she ended up doing the whole block once she got the hang of it! So sweet!! And if you need a friend to go to cornbellys with, the kids and I got season passes! So excited.

I LOVE your list...and I seriously need those shoes for Hallie when she is big enough to wear shoes!

Chrissy@SimpleJoysBlog said...

Great fall bucket list. I love that you will be prepping for Christmas early. I am Christmas obsessed so I do as well! :)

P!nky said...

What a great list...love those lil shoes!!!!

Sara Elizabeth said...

I am totally on the cleaning bit... I keep saying I'm going to do it... but somehow it never gets done. Fingers crossed I do it before the move... so I don't have to do it again for awhile. HAH! Mia will be the cutest on Halloween... and however the trick or treat goes, well, she'll still be the cutest! ;)

Desiree Macke said...

Your list is packed with awesome! Do you have any apple orchards near by? I bet Mia would love picking apples and making pressed cider! :)

Trick or treating will be so much fun!!! I can't wait to see what you dress her up as!! Fall is just the best time of year for everyone, but especially if you have a little one that is so exciting with all the decor and activities!!

Aww I miss fall! We don't really get a true fall down here so I never do any of those things any more! Good luck teaching Mia to say trick or treat!!! :)

If you get Mia to say "Trick or treat" you need to video it! It's going to be so adorable!

hello erin said...

your list is perfection. and i fully plan on stealing it. . . if only we lived closer and could do it all together. now that would be ideal :)

Kristen said...

so many fun things - i want to do a fall list now! that last picture is precious!

Emily said...

Oh my goodness, look how much she has grown!! She a beauty :)

Sarah said...

Love the trick or treating part with the kids. Especially if you go with a group of them, all the kids at the door just kill me! I didn't realize Mia's birthday was in December. My son's is too, so we throw a half birthday party, so I'm not running around like a crazy woman trying to organize a birthday party and Christmas!

Erin LFF said...

Good list girly!! I think Jared and I are actually going to be nice neighbors and pass out candy this year.. last year we hid out in our basement and watched movies ;)

Lauren said...

great list! my Fall bucket list is definitely more in my head than written down on paper...but I still know we've got lots of fun to have this Fall!

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

Yes to all the things!! It will be so much fun. We painter taped a pumpkin for Aria to finger paint last year, idea via Hello Erin, and used crayola finger paints from Target. Anyway, it was a bit hit!

Pamela said...

Come to NC for Fallllllllllllllllllllllll! PLEASE! Pretty leaves, corn maze, and ME! ;)

KelseyB said...

I want to do all of this! I cannot wait to go pick out pumpkins. Halloween is my favorite holiday so I go all out. I need to step it up for Christmas since I always all short on the decorating.

Ashley @ Words About Waverly said...

Love it all .... Wish we could come play with you girlies!!

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I really need to get on my Fall list! We are going up north to go trick or treating with my sisters kiddos can't wait!

Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason} said...

Love your list! I am so excited for fall too and have our list all picked out but as much fun as we always have, I wish it would't go by so quickly! Like you said... its October and then November and then December and then boring January all over again. Can't wait to see all the fun you girls (and guy!) have!

Crystal Hall said...
