The Perfect Fall Bucket List

M y goodness, I've been pretty MIA lately, haven't I?
With October being the busiest month of the work year for me (hello breast cancer awareness!), I've been exausted. I get home and all I want to do is unplug... and possibly go to bed even if it's 8:30 p.m. Hollaatchaworkingirl!

But you know what? Today is already rather lovely.
Traffic was light. The office is quiet and almost empty. And I turned on my beloved Christmas music today (yes, I'm out of control). It's my favorite season, and I love this.

I'm in a good mood today.

It's my favorite season, and I'm loving the arrival of fall! You should see Kansas City this time of year. Breathtaking trees in every warm shade, slightly chilly weather, and lots of fun to be discovered in the city. I'm ready to break out the cozy fall sweaters and find some fall adventures with my love and friends.

This weekend is welcomed with open arms. This is our first weekend where we don't have a darn thing planned... and we love it.

I was daydreaming about my perfect autumn weekend and fun date ideas on the way into work this morning. I came up with so many fun things I'd love to do... hence, this amazing list of adventures was created!

 { My Perfect Fall Bucket List }

+ roast marshmallows on the patio
+ sip pumpkin beer
+ make caramel apples
+ host a fall party
+ visit the vineyard on a live music friday night
+ fancy coffee date
+ explore the nature trails on a hike
+ volunteer together
+ football watch party w/ themed snacks
+ go on a picnic at the park
+ visit the apple cider mill (again!)
+ make pumpking pancakes & have a lazy morning
+ trip to the pumpkin patch
+ cozy day movie marathon
+ go apple picking
+ take a day trip
+ bake fall pies
+ play catch with the football
+ visit the zoo


Well now I can barely contain my excitement!! I have a feeling that we'll knock some items off of the bucket list this weekend, and I can't wait to share the fun with all of you next week!

I have a feeling like my Pinterest will probably explode form ideas this weekend, and I will wear google out by searching for some local fun... I can't wait!

{ What's on your fall bucket list, friends? }

Have a fun-filled autumn weekend!
