Fall Bucket List: Check in

If you read here, I made a bucket list for Fall Activities that I wanted to accomplish. It kept me accountable and I really liked having a list of simply FUN things that I wanted to incorporate in my life. So far, I've done pretty good!

Put a personal touch on some pumpkins and decorate with them  : Went with Chevron

Go to a pumpkin patch : Check!

Host a book club meeting : Proof from post coming tomorrow

Upgrade my fall wardrobe: Working on this 1 day at a time. Proof in checking account

Invest in good boots : Took the plunge with Steve Madden Intyce

Bake fall goodies for my co-workers: Need to do this asap

Bake fall treats and bring them to friends and family in the neighborhood: I even have cute containers just waiting to be used.

Meet my new baby cousins and prepare a treat for their whole family : Need to visit them again soon

Cook dinner with new recipes : Made a very successful Lasagana Soup but hoping to try some more

Try navy blue for an upcoming manicure My next manicure...I'm doing it.

Give a Pumpkin Spiced Latte one more shot I dont know....

Order new magazine subscriptions ..... Got nothin. I want Chicago Magazine, Cooking Light, and Real Simple.

Run a race: This will be completed on Thanksgiving, doing an 8K turkey Trot

All of this to be completed by December 1st.



So far, not too bad. The one that I really don't know if I'm going to accomplish is that Pumpkin Spiced Lattee....I just don't know if I can stray away from my classic, grandenonfatchaitealattewith1pumpvanilla.
A final update will come at the end of the month, and a Fresh, New, Winter check list will be in order!
