fall bucket list.

I always. always, look forward to fall. There’s something about the air and weather that makes me love autumn, not to mention I get to wear all the boots, scarves, and jackets. I’m a senior this year and I’ve heard that’s when your supposed to live your life to the fullest, which is what I’m going to be doing, ha! My fall schedule is going to be jam-packed with my bucket list items and I can’t wait. I am so excited since I’m heading to one of my favorite places ever, Chicago, in two weeks AND Disney World in October. I am way too excited (is that even possible?). I’ve done bucket lists before for summer and fall but I’ve never shared the results (aka, did I actually do them? We will never know). Now that it’s finally feeling like fall, I’m sharing my fall bucket list and at the end of October, I’ll reveal my results (I am praying I got all of it done, ha!). What’s on your list?

    I’m headed to Chicago too!! I can’t wait to enjoy all the wonderful things Chicago has to offer. What kind of movies are you going to do for the marathon?? Also pie is a great choice for a baking item! So yummy and perfectly fall!

      If you ever need recommendations for Chicago, DM me on Instagram (or shoot me an email)! I go there almost every month and love it. Hmm, I haven’t decided for the movies. Any suggestions? Thanks love!

  • Ana De- Jesus

    Pumpkin is one of my favourite things about autumn so I am happy to hear that you have included it on your fall bucket list. What is your favourite pumpkin dish/ drink x

      I made this pumpkin pull apart loaf the other day that was SO delicious!! I’m hoping to make that again next week, yum!

  • Terri Steffes

    What a wonderful list! I cannot wait for fall.

  • Carrie & Shannon

    Oh my gosh, i think we have the EXACT same list! Fall is by far our favorite season because it’s an excuse to wear oversize sweaters and eat as many apple cider donuts as you want! Plus so many great photo opportunities in pumpkin patches!

      Yes girl, give me ALL the oversized sweaters! Too bad I’m not in DC, we could’ve checked off a few items together 🙂

  • Lindsey Mozgai

    This is such a great bucket list! I love fall and all the activities that come with it. My favorite is picking out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch!

  • Krystal // The Krystal Diaries

    I’ll be headed to Europe in the fall but I can’t wait to go apple picking and make all the pumpkin things!

      We can twin!

  • Robin Rue

    This is such a great bucket list for the fall season. We always try to spend a little bit of time outdoors when the weather permits.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    Love your list so much. There are definitely a few things on there I would put on my list, like drink cider, make something with pumpkin, tailgate, go apple picking. etc. Fall is my favorite time of year so better make the most of it.

    • Lydia
      Cindy Ingalls

      I agree! Hopefully we both manage to get all of our bucket list items checked off!

  • Jean

    This is a great bucket list for Autumn/Fall! I would have never have thought of doing this, but it seems like fun to do seasonal bucket lists. I hope you manage to do it all!

    • Lydia

      Thanks Jean! I hope so too, haha!

  • Sylvia

    Fall is my absolute favorite season too! Your bucket list looks a lot like mine. We always visit a pumpkin patch and get lost in the corn maze. So much fun!


    I have never been to Chicago and its on my list of places to see for a long time now. Cant wait. Loved going through your list.

    • Lydia

      Second best city in the US! I hope you get to visit soon 🙂

  • Jeanine

    Love this list! We love to go to the children’s museum and zoo! I love fall too and the pumpkin patch and buying pumpkins are always on the list!

    • Lydia

      The zoo is so fun in the fall!

  • Heather

    I love that you added watching a terrifying movie. I love scary movies but my husband doesn’t. Fall is my most favorite time to go see horror flicks in the theater with my mom!

    • Lydia

      Yes, horror movies during the fall are perfect!

  • Renee @ The Good Hearted Woman

    Great ideas for fall. Which I am not ready for AT ALL. It seems as though summer just got started, and now the pumpkin spice ads are already out.

    • Lydia
      Renee @ The Good Hearted Woman

      No, no! I’m so ready for fall. Maybe working in fashion and preparing for it since the end of July has had an impact? thanks Renee!

  • Nailil

    This is an awesome list you have going. I never thought about doing a seasonal bucket list. I’m sure this would give us a lot to do as a family, will be trying it.

    • Lydia

      Thank you Nailil!

  • Aniella

    Nice work with the blog!! I’ll definitely help you out with the bucket list. I’m up for basically everything on there! Looking forward to the Bible Study tomorrow~

    • Lydia
