FALL BUCKET LIST
It’s that beautiful time of year again when your weekends begin to open up after a crazy busy summer. The days are filled with walks outside in this crisp fall air, cozy sweaters, night’s in, fuzzy socks, big glasses of wine, delicious hot drinks and oh yeah, did I mention it’s pretty much acceptable to start watching Christmas movies?
The summer flew by so fast this year, so I thought I would write a bucket list for fall so I could fit in all of my favourite things to do in fall without letting the time passing me by. Here are a few things on my list:
Pumpkin Patch – Take a trip to to the pumpkin patch with my new favourite drink in hand (matcha latte)
Date Night In – We want to transform our home into a movie theatre, by turning off the lights, putting our phones and computers away, lighting a few candles and curl up on the couch under a big cozy blanket with a glass of red wine, a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie we have never seen before. One of the movies on our list is: The Greatest Showman. Any recommendations?
Take up new hobbies – Take a pottery class with some girlfriends or learn how to arrange flowers.
Do a DIY project – Make homemade candles and linen spray.
Review Your Budget – The fall is the perfect time to look over your finances. I know it sounds crazy, but the holidays will sneak up on us soon and we have so much to save for (wedding, honeymoon, buying our first home…babies!)
Taking in the weather: Weekend walks through Stanley Park with a cup of coffee. (My personal favourite way to enjoy fall)
Cook something New Together: Make a day out of cooking a new recipe. Pick out a recipe together, go to the farmers market to get some fresh ingredients and get to cooking with a glass of wine in hand. I really want to try cooking something from Goop.
Baking – Baking my mom’s famous cornmeal muffins with Nick. It’s one of our absolute favourite recipes.
Girl’s Night Out – go for dinner or brunch with the girls at a beautiful restaurant in town
Read a book – I want to curl up under a blanket and read a book that’s always been on my list. I was thinking of reading ‘Little Women’ in anticipation of Greta Gerwig’s next directiorial project with some of my favourites; Timotee Chalamet, Saroise Ronan, Meryl Streep…the list just goes on and on.
What are you planning this fall?
