Hello, hello, hello! Happy October, and welcome back to my blog! ☺️
As you read from the title of this post, today I’ll be sharing some things I want to do this fall! It’s going to be sort of like a fall bucket list!
Here we go!
🍂 Drink a pumpkin spice latte
I’ve never had one, because I didn’t used to like coffee, but I’ve been drinking more coffee lately! (Especially iced coffee!) Pumpkin spice lattes sound so good! My mom also said that it’s similar to chai, and I really love that, so I definitely want to try one!
🍂 Thrift some cute fall sweaters, and dresses
Thrift shopping is so fun, and I need some more sweaters and dresses for the cooler weather! Do you guys enjoy thrift shopping?
🍂 Go on a hike
I really enjoy hiking, but I feel like my family is just so busy in the summer, plus it’s very hot! I hope to go on some hikes this autumn.
🍂 Make these pumpkin bars
They look so yummy and fallish! I hope that I can make them sometime soon! I am excited to try a new recipe out!
🍂 Bake some fall themed cupcakes
I used to bake a lot of cupcakes (mostly during the quarantine, I think, because we were stuck at home) but I haven’t made a lot recently. I want to make some fall themed cupcakes, though. I would love it if you guys could give me some ideas of what flavor they should be in the comments!
🍂 Make caramel apples
I love how so many of these are about food! 😄 But, yes, I really want to make caramel apples this year! I’ve wanted to make them for the past year or two, but just never got around to it. Hopefully, I can this year!
🍂 Finish “The Return of the King” by J.R.R. Tolkien
I’ve been working on this series for a long time, and I’m now about halfway through “The Return of the King.” I’m really getting into it, which makes my sister happy, because she is a massive LOTR fan. I think I’ll finish it in October.
🍂 Take some pictures outside
Some beautiful fall photography!! 🍁 The leaves are starting to change colors, and it just looks so lovely.
🍂 Donate to Warm Up America
I heard about their organization a while ago, and I’m always thinking “I should donate some crocheted things sometime” but I never really get around to it. I think that autumn is a good time to donate to them, because winter’s coming up, and people will need warm blankets, hats and scarves for those colder months. Autumn’s also a time I think about all the things I’m grateful for in my life, which leads me to think about those people that don’t have all the things I do.
🍂 Finish a knit project
I actually made a knit pumpkin a few days ago, which I’m really proud of, because it was my first knit project! I want to practice knitting more this fall and winter, and I hope to find and make a cute pattern! Check out this post of BetsyJane’s if you are thinking about learning to knitting!
🍂 Start on Christmas gifts early
I usually crochet a lot of gifts for my family and friends. But, most times, I wait until the last minute, then I’m trying to finish crocheting gifts the night before Christmas. I want to plan my gifts more in advance, and start on them earlier.
🍂 Start a gratitude jar
I think that this sounds like a really nice idea! I feel like, sometimes, we focus too much on all the negativity in life. A gratitude jar sounds like a good idea to think about and acknowledge all of the blessing in my life!
🍂 Post weekly on my other blog
I Have not been very consistent on there, and I’m going to resolve to post once a week!
How’s your autumn going so far? What do you want to do this fall? I’d love to chat in the comments!
That’s it for today’s post! I hope everyone’s having an amazing Monday!
See y’all on Thursday!
