This year is continuing to fly by and it’s hard for me to believe that I’m typing October. I’m tempted to say that this is my favorite time of the year, but don’t want to do that for the fear of causing the inevitable cold weather to come too soon. Generally at the beginning of the month I’ll come up with a list of things I want to work on, but I thought this month I’d write some fun bucket list-type goals that I’ll try to complete during the fall and then write some posts to follow up on how some of those go!

October and November Goals

  • Tailgate at a Mizzou game
  • Buy an autumn scented candle
  • Rake leaves and jump in them
  • Bake something pumpkin flavored
  • Wear dark nail polish
  • Pick out a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch
  • Wear Uggs and drink a #PSL at the same time
  • Decorate our front porch
  • Complete one fall DIY project
  • Host Friendsgiving
  • Go on a date to a Corn Maze
  • Make chili
  • Vote (this might be the toughest one on the list)
  • Go on a scenic walk
  • Run a 5K
  • Drink apple cider
  • Make a list of 30 things I’m thankful for
  • Visit a Farmers Market
  • Send a care package

September Goals

  • Catch up on OLW for August and September – Yay! I’m feeling so good about being caught up on both this and Project Life!
  • Cheer for Mizzou Football (I’m so looking forward to this season!) – Of course, we’ve been doing this every Saturday.
  • Chalkboard paint my closet – I may have changed my mind on this. I went to Lowe’s and asked the employee about covering up chalkboard paint and he told me that he’s not sure and he has never had anyone ask that question. Everyone wants to paint things chalkboard, but doesn’t anyone want to go back to regular paint? For that reason, I’m marking this as done.
  • Clean out office shelves – Done!
  • DIY Instax Project – Womp womp, I didn’t get this one done this month but looking forward to implementing it this month.
  • Complete all 30 Days of Blog-tember – I did pretty darn good on this, but didn’t quite make it every single day. You may see some additional posts from Bailey’s prompts popping up this month!
