Happy Fall!

Happy Fall! Today is the first day and now I'm all about the pumpkins, sweaters, and adorable boots. Every year I say I'm going to be adventurous and get Fall crazy but I usually end up spending my weekends curled up on the couch under a few layers of cozy blankets catching up with the fall show premieres.. (did anyone watch The Red Band Society last week? It was really good!) This year I'm going to make a solid effort to actually do some of the following things...

My Fall Bucket List for 2014:

1) Try a PSL again- everyone oohs and ahhs over this drink but honestly in the past I haven't been that excited about it. This year I will give it another solid try. I might like it or just going back to my Salted Carmel Mocha and Chai..


2) Go Apple Picking! New York has so many fantastic orchards and many are super close to the city- they tend to have mazes, homemade cider and doughnuts as well as tons of delicious,crisp apples. Now to convince my friends..

3) Make a pumpkin pie from scratch. This is one way I tend to enjoy pumpkins- in a pie. In high-school/college I used to be super ambitious and would make one from a sugar pumpkin every year- no cans in my house. Have been a bit lazier though these past few years and want to do it again, it is fun and tasty!

 (anyone else notice that my list revolves around food right now)

4) Have a wine tasting party. I still have an entire case of wine from this past spring when I helped my sister out for an event (remember this?)- what better way to enjoy it but tasting it with my friends!

5) Watch Hocus Pocus- kind of a given since it is the greatest Halloween movie in the world!


6) Find two pairs of great Fall boots. I will succeed this year, I must!
I literally just bought these from Shoemint for $30. If you are a member they are having a sale until Wednesday- first pair of shoes for $30. Sha-bam.


And that is it for now.. I don't want to go crazy, and chances are I still won't complete most of the list, but it is always nice to have goals!!

Now that Fall has officially arrived, what kinds of things do YOU want to do?

  4. Love your fall bucket list! Hocus Pocus is a MUST watch and if you don't really like PSL's, try a chai tea latte with pumpkin. Sooo good! Happy Monday :)
