Just over a month ago I put together a fall bucket list. I thought it was time for an update!
Carve a pumpkin
A few weeks ago my good friend Amanda hosted a pumpkin carving party! I flexed my awful pumpkin carving skills once again and am the artist behind the toothless looking pumpkin 3 pumpkins in from the right. Even though my pumpkin was pretty silly looking, I had an awesome time!
Done! I visited Olana this past weekend with my brother and his girlfriend and a great time.
I unfortunately haven’t gone kayaking this year! Maybe there is still time to go before it gets too cold out.
Go apple picking
I went apple picking about a month ago! I didn’t take many pictures, but I did manage to get a half peck of apples and my share of apple cider donuts. Mmmm.
Make an Autumn wreath
Hasn’t happened! I actually found my fall wreath from last year and I actually like it… so I have a feeling this isn’t going to happen.
Clean out ALL closets (how does it seem that every closet in my house is jammed with crap after one year?)
Kinda done? I cleaned out all of my clothing closets. I went through all of my clothes and sent a jam packed bag to ThredUp. I have had good luck with ThredUp before and wanted to see what I could get for the clothes that I absolutely wasn’t wearing anymore. I am planning on going through the other closets soon!
Host / Attend a Fall beer tasting. (I do not enjoy beer that much. But I wish I did! I am going to try to sway my taste buds this year)
Not done yet… soon!
5 new fall recipes (excited about this one!)
I have cooked quite a bit lately, but haven’t done any original recipe development. Recently I have made broccoli cheddar soup, spanish rice stuffed peppers, stuffed chicken, and one of my new favorites- a whole chicken in the crockpot. I have also been eating a lot of turkey sandwiches, eggs and butternut squash.
