Fall Bucket List 2018 - What We Accomplished

I know everyone has officially made the shift to the Christmas season, but y’all know me, I never abandon a good list, so today is the day to see how we did on our fall bucket list…

O N E – Decorate the House for Fall

CHECK!  And you can see the tour here!  It was by far my favorite fall tour yet!

T W O – Drink Plenty of PSLs

CHECK!  I had two or three from Starbucks and made a couple at home, too!  

T H R E E – Attend the Gala at My Alma Mater

CHECK!  You can see the recap here.

F O U R – Attend Homecoming Festivities at My Alma Mater

CHECK!  And it was such a fun evening.  The recap is here.

F I V E – Fall Weekend Getaway in the Mountains

CHECK!  And it might have been my favorite yet!  Recaps here, here, and here.

S I X – Go Apple Picking

CHECK!  Recap here.

S E V E N – Go Wine-Tasting at Our Favorite Vineyard

CHECK!  We went to our favorite place on our mountain trip and it was another wonderful evening.  See the post here.

E I G H T – Visit the Top of Brasstown Bald

CHECK!  This was our first trip and it probably won’t be our last.  Recap here.

N I N E – Spend the Day in Helen, GA

CHECK!  We actually went twice!  Recap here and here.

T E N – Visit Rock Ranch with Friends

CHECK!  And this trip was even better than last year’s trip.  See the recap here.

E L E V E N – Watch Football on the Back Porch

CHECK!  We actually only did this once due to different circumstances, but since we did it, I’m calling it a win!

T W E L V E – Watch a Movie Under the Stars

CHECK!  Technically the stars weren’t completely out, but we did manage to squeeze in Room on the Broom outside one evening.  It was wonderful. 

T H I R T E E N – Introduce the Movie Hocus Pocus to the Kids

CHECK!  And they both loved it!  Olivia wasn’t even scared, so it went even better than I could have imagined!  Recap here.

F O U R T E E N – Visit a Pumpkin Patch

CHECK!  We didn’t do this as a family, but since Olivia and I went to one on a field trip together I’m gonna count it!  Recap here.

F I F T E E N – Carve Pumpkins

CHECK!  This was our best one yet!  Recap here.

S I X T E E N – Trick-or-Treat

CHECK!  The kids went longer than ever and got more candy than ever this year so it was a great one!  Recap here.

S E V E N T E E N – Go to the Georgia/Auburn Game & Then Ed Sheeran??

CHECK!  The Georgia/Auburn game was originally scheduled for the same night as the Ed Sheeran concert and choosing which one to go to was killing me.  Well, we ended up being the LUCKIEST people in the whole world because Ed Sheeran’s concert had to be moved up one night due to Atlanta United (soccer team) making it into the finals.  That meant we were able to do BOTH and we didn’t have to choose!  Whew!  Recap here.

E I G H T E E N – Fall Family Photos

CHECK!  We did them ourselves again and they came out beautifully.  You can see them all here.

N I N E T E E N – Friendsgiving

CHECK!  This was the one thing that I didn’t think we’d check off of the list, but WE DID IT!  Recap here.

T W E N T Y – Watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

CHECK!  As always, we spent the morning hanging out on the couch, eating homemade waffles, and watching the parade… one of my favorite days of the whole year.  Recap here.

Well, for the first time EVER on a bucket list, we checked off every single item!  I can’t even believe it.  And now that we have fall out of the way, it’s time to move on to all of the Christmas goodness!  Stay tuned for our Christmas bucket list next week!
