Fall bucket list

I love fall...have I said that already?
Something about the cool crisp air in the early mornings, all the leaves beginning to change colors, having to wear sock to bed and seeing pumpkins and mums outside of the stores make me
 happy happy happy!
This will be my first fall in Cookeville and I am wanting to try new things and start some small traditions with Matthew!!
1.) Carve pumpkins....its just a fun thing to do and I like trying different carvings on them!
I also want to decorate a few small pumpkins, I have been seeing a bunch of different cute ideas on Pinterest that I am dying to do.
2.) Chili and game night...I want to try a new chili recipe and use my crock pot for it and I think it would be really fun to have a game night with a bunch of close friends.
3.) Corn Maze....I don't think you can ever be too old for a corn maze.
4.) Pumpkin patch....Love going to these and picking out the perfect pumpkin!!
5.) Local fall festival....I am hoping Cookeville has some type of fall festival or something for fall, like on the town square or something. Cookeville is small so surely they do!
6.) Fall picnic by the water....I love my new picnic basket and there is nothing better than a packed picnic basket sitting on a blanket with my man by the water enjoying the cool crisp air and just talking.
7.) Apple orchard....I have never been to one but I would LOVE to find on close by and pick the best apples and make a fresh apple pie or maybe some apple jelly!
8.) Farmers market....I absolutely LOVE our farmers market back home. It takes over the whole square every Saturday morning and they have every type of fruit, vegetable and flower you can think of. Always such a fun time and you are bound to see at least 10 people you know there.
9.) MUMS & PUMPKINS......like I said one of my favorite parts of fall!!!! I am dying to get some beautiful bright yellow mums to sit out on the front steps of our apartment.
10.) Scary movie night...I used to watch scary movies  every.single.Friday.night  when I was younger but as I got older I didn't watch them as much and now that I am living in an apartment I don't watch them but since it's getting close to Halloween I think it would be fun to have a scary movie night with the girls (definitely not by myself, HA!)\
11.)  Hot cider and walking around campus.....Last fall when I worked at the bank we made this hot cider that was AHH-MAZING! I probably had about 4 cups of it each time we made it. It tasted amazing and was perfect for the cooler weather. Our customers came to our location just for the got cider. So I am wanting to make some of that and take a walk around campus with Matthew this fall as well. I have heard campus is BEAUTIFUL in the fall and I am so excited to see it!!!!!

  2. This is a great fall bucket list. I can't wait to carve pumpkins. Farmers markets are my favorite.
    Stopping by the say hello from Wildcard Wednesday!

  3. I keep meaning to post my fall list and just haven't gotten a chance to.

    So excited to carve pumpkins! Is it bad that I don't know what "mums" are? I was confused when I read "mums outside of stores." I thought you meant moms!

  4. Yall could just drive on over to NC & come to our corn maze :)

  5. You should definitely find an apple orchard - it's so fun! Usually in October, most have their festivals too. Can't wait to see your re-cap as well! Thanks for linking up!

  6. Your fall bucket list sounds like so much fun! I might have to steal it :)
