Fall Bucket List

Sharing is caring!

What's on my fall bucket list? Click to find out.

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you’re all having a fabulous morning. 

Now that fall is finally here..My boyfriend and I decided to make a fall bucket list that we plan to tackle by the end of November. Because WI doesn’t have a long Fall. We usually start getting snow in November. I’m so excited about this Fall Bucket List because the boys and I didn’t have one last year since we had just moved into our apartment. So much was getting done and we just didn’t have time to tackle anything. This year we are definitely going to make sure we do it. 

Fall Bucket List

  1. Pumpkin Patch
  2. Apple Picking
  3. Make S’mores Dip (Since we can’t do s’mores in our apartment)
  4. Drink Hot Cocoa with marshmallows
  5. Halloween Movie Nights (this includes: Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas & Halloweentown)
  6. Make Thankful Jars
  7. Visit Milwaukee Zoo
  8. Hay Ride
  9. Trick-a-Treating
  10. Bake Halloween Cookies
  11. Eat Caramel Apples
  12. Carve pumpkins
  13. Jump in a pile of leaves
  14. Bake a fall dessert

Didn’t want to over do our list so this will be fun to do with my kiddos. 

What’s on your bucket list?

    I love your fall bucket list, and I love that you made it with your boys and boyfriend. Your movie choices are excellent; I can’t wait to watch Hocus Pocus. Do you know what your boys will be for Halloween?

    • 9.28.15

      Lol thanks!! They want to be Superman & a Ninja. I have to be “Super Girl” because my youngest wants me to match him.

  2. 9.28.15

    I have a list of things my hubby and I want to do this fall. I am volunteering in a classroom on the day of their pumpkin patch/apple orchard field trip. I’m super excited!

    • 9.28.15

      That’s awesome!!! I wish I could go with my oldest but I have youngest so he can’t tag along. Otherwise next year when they’re both in elementary school I’m definitely doing it.

  3. 9.28.15

    Such a fun idea! It’s not really fall yet where I live (we’re still seeing temps consistently in the 80s!), so I’m looking forward when the weather cools off a little and I can start my own fall bucket list. I want to make some s’mores dip!

    • 9.28.15

      Ugh that sucks!!! Reasons why I can’t live in the south or west coast because I love the cooler temps in Septembers lol .

      • 9.28.15

        Haha, it’s really not that bad. And, considering what the weather’s like in the summer here, 80 IS cool. 🙂 We’ll get those nice, fall-ish temps later, as our fall doesn’t hit until late October or early November. I’m okay with it since I’m SUCH a wimp when it comes to really cold weather. I’d never last anywhere that it snowed! 😀

    I love all of these! It is still in the high 80s here-ugh! however our city hosts one of the biggest pumpkin patch festivals around so I hope to make it to that!

    ADORABLE! Seriously, I love Fall and I love all the Autumn-inspired things on your list. 🙂

      Thank you!!! Its definitely my favorite season. I just wish ours in WI was longer. But we tend to get snow mid november 🙁

  10. 9.28.15

    These sound like great ideas for the fall! I just went apple picking this past weekend. I’m really looking forward to making smores and all the Halloween movies 🙂

    • 9.30.15

    So fun! I want to make a list with the hubs 🙂 He won’t be as excited as me, but it’ll be fun.

    • 9.30.15

      I think once someone does it the other person will be happy doing it. lol

  15. 9.28.15

    Aw, what a fun list! I am still struggling through triple digit weather over here, so I’ve been putting off making a bucket list because I still can’t wear my favorite clothes or anything! Arizona is killing me right now!

    • 9.30.15

      Thank you. I couldn’t live there lol I need my fall weather.

  16. 9.28.15

    I love Fall! Great list. Reminds me of some things I’d like to do too. I did this post last week on my blog and I think I’ll be doing it for every season from now on.

    I need to work on my fall bucket list…so many things I want to do and not enough time!

    • 9.30.15

      WI only gets about 1 1/2 month of Fall so we take advantage before the snow starts to fall. lol

    I love this bucket list! I need to make one, they’re so fun to have and even more exciting when you get to cross one off your list! You should take tons of pictures and make a scrapbook out of it once you’ve finished – something your boys will remember it by! : ) I cannot wait for the SYBL Instagram challenge! So excited!!!

    • 9.30.15

    All of these are a must! I can’t wait to go get our pumpkins and pass out candy for trick-or-treaters since we finally have our own house.

    • 9.30.15

      We live in an apartment but were definitely passing out candies to our neighbors 🙂

    We love halloween movies at our house! Last year we had the nieces over and we watched halloween town. I don’t know that they loved it, but we sure did! We don’t have enough space in our house for a legit smore, but we end up doing it over the stove and it’s still somewhat fun and exciting. Great list! Hope you get to do most of it!

    • 9.30.15

      Halloweentown exists in Oregon. I must visit soon lol My boys love that movie.

  37. 9.29.15

    I always love a good instagram challenge. My fall bucket lists includes going to a corner maze and a few festivals before it gets super cold

    • 9.30.15

      Thank you. I can’t wait to see your images.
      Were going on a haunted hay rides without the kiddos. 🙂
