Autumn Bucket List

Earlier in the summer, I did a Summer Bucket List--thanks to Jillian from Cornflake Dreams for letting me be a part of that (love her & her blog). I shared my results here. It was so fun, so I decided to make one for autumn! Let's see my Autumn Bucket List:

  1. I love the smells of autumn, don't you? One of my favorite is the scent of cinnamon & apples.  This fall, I want to bake an apple pie. Note: I've never baked any sort of pie. What's an easy recipe to try?
  2. It's just not autumn to me unless I go to a pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins of various sizes. The little ones I decorate with, sugar pumpkins I use for pumpkin pie (ok, I have someone else make the pie!), and of course, I must carve a pumpkin. I'm pretty much the winner of the Number 1 Pumpkin Carver in Atlanta (according to me, and um, I was the only contestant and I, um, invented said title/contest).
  3. I have a horrible sense of direction, but I love a challenge, so maybe I should try a corn maze! Wish me luck! Are you good at corn mazes?
  4. LEAVES, lEaVeS, leaves...can you tell they're one of my faves? This autumn I've got to see the colorful leaves (North GA is the best around these parts), jump in some leaves, and catch a falling leaf (harder than it looks!).
  5. Next on my autumn bucket list is stargazing! I grew up in a small town and now that I live right in the city, I miss seeing the stars. I need friends with a truck and I need to make it all comfy like the pic above.
  6. My final item on the list is to roast s'mores. Last year, I made s'mores cupcakes, but this year I wanna do the real thing; preferably around a fire!
That's my list. Share yours in the comments!
I hope you have the best weekend. Be safe, behave, and be well. Love, Elle


  1. I love this bucket list. Autumn is my favourite season as well, so I'm defintiely going to try things from your list.

  2. I love this autumnal post!
    Take a look at my blog, and if you like it, follow me, I'll be waiting for you!

    Cosa mi metto???

  3. I love the smell of autumn too and wish we had pumpkin patches here!

  4. sounds like a blast.
    and yes catching falling leaves is hard, we used to spend hours doing it at school.

  5. Sounds like a great list. I'd add colorful mums to the list and making applesauce. Like you, I decorate with pumpkins and I can't get enough of the colorful leaves.
    Have the best weekend, Elle!

  6. Such a fun list! S'mores might be my favorite thing about cooler temps... well, s'mores and boots ;)

  7. Great list, I love fall!

    The pie recipe I posted yesterday is super easy and delicious, I definitely recommend it for your first pie


  8. I have never actually attempted to make my own pies, apple or otherwise, and I feel like I need to be bold and experiment with that this fall.

  9. PERFECT bucket list for Fall! I would totally do all those too.! I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch, I'm forcing my roommate to come with me...maybe we'll go next weekend...or the one after :)

  10. mmm applie pie! If you get a good recipe, please share because I would love to make one myself!

    Fall foods are my favorite :0)

  11. your list is so fun! we are headed to the corn maze next week and i'm super excited!

  12. Wow, I love this list. It's getting me in the mood for fall (especially since it cooled off today down here in FL, yay!). Apple Pie is super easy to make, so you should have zero problem with it. And the corn maze sounds like so much fun- I've been in one a long time ago when I was little and it would be so great to go back in one :) As for the leaves and stargazing, since I live in south Florida, I'll have to live vicariously through you! (Oh, and I really want to make those smores cupcakes now!)

    This post made my day :)

  20. Oooh yes! I want to do all of these things! I so want to bake but I'm going on this vegan and gluten free diet thingie starting on Monday. I have no idea why I am doing it nor why I decide to do it this time of year... Silly me. Let's see how long this lasts.... :)

    Have a great weekend! xoxo

  21. Your list is very cool, I love it all! Autumm is my favourite season! <3<3

  22. This is an awesome list! I would try an Apple Pie with a frozen crust, trying to make it scratch is a lot of work! And star gazing..ooo that is so much fun!

  23. I need to find a pumpkin patch around here!

  24. Love your bucket list! This is so cute. I attempted to bake a pie and it was a disaster!


  25. Great list! I am so excited fall is finally here!



  26. I actually prefer the smells of summer but I am looking forward to my boots. ;)

  27. Nice list- well in my book any list with s'mores on it is a nice one :) have a great weekend!http://www.saysskippy.blogspot.com/

  28. Those smores look AMAZING! I love #4! I took like a million pics of leaves on my vacation! Paul (my fiance) thought I was a bit out of control but I was like HEY we live in Florida...we NEVER see them anymore...he said it was surprising that I wasn't gathering them up to bring home.

    Have a great weekend!!

  29. So excited that Autumn has arrived! This is a great post!


  30. I have a husband with a truck, why haven't I ever thought about stargazing? We could even do it in the driveway! Stargazing I mean.

  31. Awesome bucket list Elle I love the scent of cinnamon too and I love how leaves crunch under my feet weird huh lol

    Bucket list for fall is to get more scarves and chunky jewelry because I am obsessed.

    P.s. You should give us the recipe for the cupcakes smores :)


  32. I'm all about s'mores too! Totally 'tis the season!

  33. Amazing lists! I totally agree with the pumpkin patch theory-I love pumpkin and carving pumpkins! I would also love to do a corn maze, however, I get a little claustrophobic, so maybe not such a good idea for me!

  36. Great list. Fall is a fun time of year. I can't let a year go buy without pickin' a pumpkin. I recently received a book on unusual ways to carve pumpkins so, this year, I'm gonna experiment. Let's see your carving skill!

  37. I love this list... I need to learn how to bake a pie too!

  38. Great bucket list doll and I just may be stealing a few and adding them to my list! :)
