I hope everyone has stuffed themselves full of delicious Thanksgiving food and unstuffed their wallets on all kinds of great Black Friday deals! Now that this holiday is behind us, I feel it’s completely appropriate to retire the Fall Bucket List and bring out the Winter version!

Before I reveal my Winter list, I wanted to share how I did with Fall. Here’s what my list looked like:

Fall Bucket List3-page-001

And here’s how I did!

[[Go apple-picking & bake something with the apples]] – I did this one early on. We had more fun picking the apples than I thought we would, but I mistakenly added mint extract to my apple crisp instead of vanilla. I still ate it though! Thumbs up

[[Horseback riding]] – Loved this one after I got over being terrified! Thumbs up

[[Wear a Halloween costume out somewhere]] – I dressed as Gronkowski with a mask and a jersey for work, then made myself into some sort of spider thing for going out at night. Thumbs up (but thumbs down for the tiny cell phone picture)

[[Take new fall foliage pictures]] – Did this one several times and also found a few new places to photograph! Thumbs up

[[Make Butterbeer]] – Made 4 glasses to split with Dan, but somehow drank….4 glasses. Thumbs up

[[Donate to a food drive]] – Have a bag full of canned goods in my car right now waiting to find a food drive. Thumbs half up

[[Find a favorite pumpkin drink at Starbucks]] – Turns out my favorite pumpkin drink is no pumpkin drink at all. I tried a pumpkin latte and a squirt of the flavored syrup in my chai latte, but it’s just too sweet and too…pumpkiny? for me. I consider this a win though because I just discovered caramel brulee lattes, so I can change up my drink order when I want to now. Thumbs up

[[Watch 1 new Fall TV premiere]] – Started watching Scorpion, which was good, but it didn’t hook me. Stalker on the other hand? Obsessed. Also loving How to Get Away with Murder. Thumbs up

[[Get apple cider donuts]] – Obviously done. Thumbs up

[[Make an appetizer for Sunday football]] – Just bought the ingredients to make these for tomorrow’s game. Salivating. Thumbs up

[[Make a fall craft]] – Made some paper pumpkins that my cats promptly destroyed. Also helped make fall-themed decor for a friend’s October wedding. Thumbs up

[[Watch a horror move that I’ve never seen]] – You’re Next. Still terrified. Thumbs up

[[Make a Crockpot meal]] – You guys already know how this one turned out. Thumbs up

[[Cook a dish for Thanksgiving dinner]] – Sort of? I made corn dog muffins (corn bread with hot dog pieces), but I’m not sure if this can be considered a “dish” so we’re going halfway on this one. Thumbs half up

[[Try a new fall makeup trend]] – Tried matte lipstick in a fall-ish wine color. Not a fan of the matte, it felt very 90s, but I did like the color! Thumbs up

[[Try a new brand or flavor of cider]] – Found a pumpkin cider I loved at a brewfest in September. Was slightly drunk on samples, came home and bought a 6 pack, but it just doesn’t taste the same. Thumbs up

[[Go to a haunted house]] – This one was a bit of a fail? I made an attempt, but got uncharacteristically scared about 2 feet in and forced Dan to turn around and walk back out with me. Ugh. Still annoying. Thumbs down

[[Visit a local winery]] – Conveniently, there is a winery about two minutes down the street from us. We’ve already done two tastings in the past month and purchased several bottles. Thumbs way up

[[Bake something with pumpkin]] – Made pumpkin muffins, but promptly got sick of pumpkin this year and haven’t had much since. Thumbs up

So there it is! 18 thumbs up out of 20, and once I find that food drive, it will be 18.5. Not too bad, but let’s see if I can get 100% of my Winter list complete this year!! Stay tuned tomorrow for the big release 😉

What was your favorite thing you accomplished this fall?
