Collecting Moments: Fall Bucket List, Complete!

At the beginning of fall I posted about my fall bucket list.  (Read about it here.)  I am very happy to say that I have completed everything on my list!  (yay!)  I love lists.  I get a huge sense of satisfaction when I cross things off.

  • Buy fall scented candles:  See which ones I chose here!
  • Bake with apples:  I live in the apple capital of the world, so apples are abundant, especially in the fall.  I baked apple bread and apple cookies this fall season.  Yum!  
  • Make a pumpkin dessert:  I made a maple pumpkin cheesecake with caramel sauce, one of my favorite pumpkin desserts.
  • Find the perfect pumpkins:  Read about my trip to the pumpkin patch here!
  • Grab a coffee and take a stroll: One of my favorite things to do!
  • Have a fall photo shoot:  We did a fall photo shoot with Holly and her fiance Alec.  It was so much fun!
  • Carve pumpkins:  Check out my post about carving pumpkins here!
  • Dress up for Halloween:  I was a baker this year and my hubby was a chef.  Read about my simple DIY baker costume here.
  • Decorate for fall:  I had fun getting creative with decorations this year by using things I already had.
  • Have a movie night:  My hubby and I had a movie night date complete with popcorn and cider.  Our Halloween movie choice?  Beetlejuice!  (Talk about old school!)
  • Try something new and fall-inspired:  I tried a couple new things this year… I made apple and pumpkin bread for the first time.  Also, I tried my first ever pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks!  I know, right?  My first!  I’m a huge latte fan, so I was surprised myself that I hadn’t tried it until this year.
  • Make soup:  I made ham, cheddar and potato soup with beer bread.
  • Walk the dogs:  I’m making a point to keep walking my dogs even though it’s getting so cold outside.
  • Watch football:  I’ve watched a lot of football this season.  The Seahawks, the Cougs (my college team) and my little brother’s seventh grade team.  So fun!
  • Capture pictures of the season:  I think I did pretty well taking pictures of almost everything this fall season!


I love fall.  I can’t believe how fast the season is going.  Before we know it we will be gathered around the table for Thanksgiving.  How have you celebrated the fall season this year?
