Fall Bucket List

Fall Bucket List

I’m gonna go ahead and say that this is gonna cover half of November as well. With my seasonal late ass.

| Visit a Pumpkin Patch

This has been on my Fall Bucket List forever. Some day I’ll actually go to one. You’d think there were a ton in Texas, but for some reason there really aren’t that many in my area.

| Eat Disney Fall Snacks

I’m celebrating Halloween at Disney this year and I’m SO EXCITED. It’s been years since I last have and I CAN NOT WAIT. I already have a food wish list lol. Disney snacks are obvi my fav but Fall snacks even more. I’m so glad most of them aren’t exclusive to the Halloween party anymore!

| Do a Fall Photo Shoot

This sort of ties in with visit a Pumpkin Patch. There aren’t many places around me to take Fall photos; I may just have to do one while I’m at Disney instead! But I’ve always wanted to do one of those cliché Fall photo shoot’s people do! I’m still salty I didn’t get to take maternity photos like I wanted to! I’ve resolved that if I want to do something, I’m gonna have to do it and I’m responsible for making sure it happens.

| Bake Something Fall Themed

This is one that’s been on my list for a while now! I finally have a Kitchen Aid so I don’t see why this can’t be done this year. And I’m not talking cupcakes or cake or anything. I want to do something like Fall themed bread or a pie… something warm, cozy and comforting spices!

| Paint a Halloween Light

They have these at Michael’s where you pick a blank object to paint and it’s actually a table light! I don’t think Tums is old enough to do this one just yet, but I really want to start doing this myself. I don’t have many Fall/Halloween traditions, so I think this would be fun.

| Make Caramel Apples

I keep buying things to MAKE caramel apples but I end up eating all the supplies. I LOVE caramel apples, especially the ones from Disney. I use to work at Candy Cauldron so I know HOW to make Disney caramel apples lol. I just need to stop eating everything before getting there. And I need to find the right kind of caramel!

| Read Spooky Books

My Halloween Reading Challenge falls into this one! But I tend to set aside most spooky books for October!

| Decorate for Fall

I usually start this one in July, I live in places where it doesn’t get cold until December so it doesn’t really matter how early I start. However this year I haven’t even started yet. I just haven’t been in the Fall mood for some reason this year. Granted most Fall seasons in TX haven’t really been that great and have sort of been taken away from me. But I plan to decorate for Fall/Thanksgiving pretty soon.

| Light all the Fall scented candles

This one’s a given but still deserved to be on this list. Thankfully I haven’t gone crazy on the Fall scented candles or wax melts this year!

What are some things on your Fall Bucket List?

Fall Bucket List 2018

This is my second Fall in Texas and I’ve been searching for more and more events and things to do during the Fall time. I spent 5 years in Florida and while I love love love the 90º year round I’m also slightly excited to be in a place that has a REAL Fall — despite my hate for cold rainy weather.

DALLAS ARBORETUM

I don’t know why I just stumbled on this place a few months ago (via an Instagram ad at that)! Last year they themed it OZ! OZ! And my heart breaks a little that I had no idea This year’s theme is Neverland which, I can also get down with. I peaked the location tag on Instagram and the grounds look gorgeous! I’m not sure what to expect but I have the cutest outfit ready and set to take a million pictures of the Baby Lo bump and of course me!

I know they also have an afternoon Tea Time here but only Mon-Fri and since Bubba works during the week it’s going to be a bit difficult to be able to attend one; but from looks of it they also set up the place nicely for Christmas as well! So, we’ll see!

NORTHPARK CENTER’S PUMPKIN PATCH

Northpark is one of my favorite malls in Dallas — actually in all of the DFW area! This place is my absolute weakness! We were just there last weekend and now that I think about it, the place was completely decked out in cornstalks and pumpkins. It was some kind of magical! I didn’t see the outside bits since we usually park in the parking garage but we may be able to stop by here again one more time before they take it all down and I’ll definitely take a bit of advantage of that and wander the grounds outside to see if this is out there!

I haven’t been to a proper Pumpkin Patch since I was a child. There is something ultra Fall about a Pumpkin Patch! Granted I don’t really dabble in carving pumpkins anymore… now that I’m older I see how messy the whole process can be and I’m just not about that life lol but it’s always fun to see all the different shapes and sizes of Pumpkins. Is that weird to say?!

TEXAS STATE FAIR

It has always been on my bucket list to visit the Texas State Fair! I remember years ago I’d watch segments on it on The Food Network and how EVERYTHING there was deep fried, this was before that trend started to spread nationwide at least as far as I knew.

Last year I got to go for my first time and we went on the last weekend of the fair which made it pretty crowded and hectic but there was SO much to see and do! As you can see from the photo it was also cloudy and had rained earlier that day. I’m hoping this year will be bright and warm!

There’s a few new snacks that were added to this years line up and I have a few of them on my list of foods to try. Besides that there’s so much of the fair I didn’t get to see the last time we were there that I hope to see this time!

Maybe this time I’ll actually grab a map lol.

RAMEN EXPO USA

A random event I had stumbled on while scrolling through Facebook is the Ramen Expo! I had no idea things like this happened and happened in Texas at that! This gives you the chance to taste test different types of Ramen from broths to noodles and everything in between! I don’t know too much about it just that it’s RAMEN and it’s an EXPO, I mean how cool is that?!?

DALLAS WATER LANTERN FESTIVAL

I’ve always wanted to do one of these and I thought you could only do them in other countries! Imagine my surprise when I found out you can do them here as well!

Tangled was one of the first movies Bubba and I watched together so stuff like this has a special spot in my soul! Though I think the date of this event may clash with another event we had planned, whomp! But I’m still holding out hope I get to see this happen!

FW BOTANIC GARDEN AUTUMN AFTERNOON TEA

Another tea event I randomly stumbled across that takes place in the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. I’ve passed by this place a few times but have never actually been yet. Thankfully this tea event is on a Saturday! But we’ll see what Bubba has to say; it sound fun!

What are some fun things you’re looking forward to doing in your area this Fall?
