Fall Bucket List


Today I'm linking up with Brave Love Blog and bringing y'all my Fall bucket list. :)

At the top of the list is going to a football game, hopefully an Auburn game!
Chris and I love our Auburn Tigers and I really hope to be at the game this Saturday as Auburn plays the Jacksonville Gamecocks (the university that I go to!)

Carving a pumpkin is also on my list...call me basic if you want, but Chris and I did this two years ago (we carved a super cute cow into our pumpkin) and I can't wait to do it again. I want to carve our farm brand into one this year!

The fair has been on my calendar since I found out when it was coming to Montgomery. Cole Swindell will be playing and I am so, so excited to see him!

I'm a fire-bug, I just can't help it. There's something about having a bonfire and roasting marshmallows that just makes me realize that fall is finally here.

The crock-pot is my favorite cooking tool, especially for Fall and winter. I have bookmarked tons of recipes on my Pinterest slow cooker  board that I can't wait to try out. From pork chops to cheesy bacon potatoes, I've got them all ready to try which will be perfect for when my student teaching starts and I need an easy meal.

Live music is my absolute favorite. Chris and I saw Riley Green (side note: YouTube his song Bury Me in Dixie if you don't know him) this past weekend & we definitely want to hear some more live music before it gets too cold outside to do so!

On October 20th it will be the one year anniversary of Chris proposing to me, he did it when we were trail-riding so I think I would like to take a trail ride around that date to kind of commemorate that :) Plus trail-riding in the Fall is just SO  much more comfortable than riding in the summertime.

Just like trail-riding, hiking is much better in the Fall than in the summer. We're blessed to be less than 20 minutes away from beautiful Cheaha Mountain (which is the highest point in the state of Alabama). I hope that we can get in at least one or two good hikes before it gets too cold outside.

My last two go together, the perfect apple dessert and wassail can be served together on a cool night. I've got several apple desserts pinned on my Sweet Dessert board on Pinterest that I plan on trying out along with my stand by Wassail recipe. If you've never heard of Wassail, it's basically like a spiced cider/orange juice drink. It's heavenly & I love to serve it at family get-togethers (& keep some on hand for when I get a scratchy throat!)


I hope y'all enjoyed my fall bucket list...what do you have planned for your Fall?

Head over to BraveLoveBlog and see what is on everyone else's bucket lists!

Until next time. . .

  2. Neat idea to narrow it down to a fall bucket list. Summer is my favourite season, and I'm struggling to deal with the changing of seasons. This helped me remember that there are lots of fun things to do in the fall as well.

  5. Love your fall bucket list!!! Once September hit, I couldn't resist baking a fall dessert, so I made apple oatmeal bars. They were so good!
