Fall 2018 Bucketlist

Fall 2018 Bucketlist

Happy first day of fall!

Fall is my second favorite season! It used to be my favorite before I realized just how much I hate winter. Fall means that winter is coming so it has dropped to second place behind summer.

Fall in Michigan is absolutely stunning! Every day is beautiful, crisp, and full of promise. I try to enjoy it as much as I can before the evil snow starts to fall. Fall in Michigan means fresh honeycrisp apples straight from the trees, homemade cider, and lots of drives to see the leaves.

Without further ado, here are the items that I added to my Fall Bucketlist for 2018!

  1. Visit the apple orchard
  2. Watch Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown
  3. Decorate our front porch for fall
  4. Drink hot apple cider
  5. Go on a drive to see the leaves
  6. Pass out Halloween candy at our new house
  7. Have a bonfire with friends
  8. Carve pumpkins
  9. Host a football watching party
  10. Make a double batch of my mom’s chili and cornbread
  11. Take Oscar and Megan on a trail walk
  12. Rake all the leaves
  13. Decorate the whole house for fall and Halloween

I am really excited to enjoy our visit fall season in our new house. I have already started to decorate for fall and have been collecting décor for Halloween.

21st Birthday Week Activities!

It is officially the week of my 21st Birthday! As I have mentioned before, birthdays have always been special to me because I share it with my Grandpa and Riley. Birthdays give me a chance to celebrate everything that I have accomplished in the last year and give me something to look forward to.

This year, I started my birthday week off with a trip to Cedar Point with Brett. Brett is a huge roller coaster fan and yesterday (October 19th) was the last day that the ride Mantis would be running. Brett is weird and sentimental about roller coasters so I agreed to drive down with him to say goodbye to Mantis. It ended up being the perfect day because it was pretty warm and the park was slow so we were able to ride almost every coaster without waiting. We had a great day together!

Some other activities that I am looking forward to this week are:

  • Getting my new driver’s license: My current license features my braces and awkward 16 year old face. I am super excited to get a new one that actually looks like how I look now.

  • Organizing my birthday party: I am looking forward to having an awesome 21st birthday with all of my friends. We are still figuring out all of the details but it’s going to be a fun night no matter what we do.
  • Outlet Shopping: On the 25th my mom, sister, and I are traveling to the outlet mall for some serious shopping time!
  • Birthday party at the lake: Celebrating my birthday at the lake with my Grandpa and the rest of my family is seriously the best part of my birthday every year. I love spending time with my family and the lake looks beautiful in the fall!
  • The Lake!

  • Carving pumpkins: My dad bought me and Dani pumpkins to carve for Halloween. I just think that carved pumpkins are so cute and I always have a great time designing mine!

Overall, this week is going to be filled with so many great memories. I am planning on cherishing the time that I get to spend with my Grandpa, family, and friends this week. Turning 21 is a huge milestone but to me it is about way more important things than finally being able to drink alcohol. Turning 21 means that I have spent the past 20 years growing, learning, and becoming a better person. I am grateful for all of the opportunities that I have had over the last 20 years and I am looking forward to all of the adventures that 21 will bring me.

Why I love October!

Today is October 1st which means that my favorite month has officially begun! Happy October everyone! I thought that I would share with you some reasons why October has always been my favorite month and why I look forward to it every year

1. It’s my birth month: I feel like this is the most obvious reason of them all. Birthdays have always been special to me because I share my birthday with my Grandpa who is one of the most important people in my life. I was also blessed with the most amazing birthday gift when my god sister, Riley, was born on my birthday as well. I love sharing my day with two of the best people in the world.

Me and my Grandpa!

2. Fall is finally here: Fall officially begins in September but it never really feels like fall until October. Fall is my all-time favorite season because I love visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards, watching the leaves change colors, and snuggling up in my favorite sweaters. And of course, drinking gallons upon gallons of warm apple cider!

3. Pumpkin everything: I love pumpkin donuts, drinks, cakes, and everything in between! Seeing ads for pumpkin flavored things makes me happy. I’m also a huge apple fan. Give me caramel apples and apple cider and I will be set for life! I’m just a simple girl who loves fall a little too much 🙂

4. Halloween: My favorite holiday growing up was always Halloween. Partly because of how close it is to my birthday but also because I love the atmosphere. I love passing out candy on my porch and seeing everyone have such a great night. My neighborhood goes all out for Halloween so it’s always a really fun night!

I hope you guys enjoyed the reasons why I love October! I am so excited for this month and all of the activities that are taking place. I’m thinking about writing an October Bucket List if anyone is interested! Have a wonderful day!
