Fall-la-la-la! Easy Autumn Bucket List Link Up!

Autumn is here!!!  Eep!  Eeep!  Scarlet and I have been secretly celebrating for weeks now.  Even though the sky is blue and the sun is shining bright I couldn't resist dressing up in our cozy duds, indulging in a warm drink and snuggling with a million pillows and a movie.  
When I was pregnant and dreaming about the someday adventures with my soon-to-be daughter, the idea of having a toddler join us in our harvest season traditions delighted me to no end.  Just think of the leaf crunching, hay riding, wool coat wearing, pumpkin carving, puddle jumping wonderment! And  again, I must eeep!  That someday is here and I'm utterly giddy with excitement.  Maaaaybe the giddy is fueled slightly from the highly caffeinated and highly caloried pumpkin spice lattes I've been downing.  Whateva it's from, I don't mind!  Eeep! 

The caffeine buzz got me thinkin', wouldn't it be fun to have a bucket list we can do together in Internetland?  I've noticed others out there but I wanted something simple.  I've created an easy link up list for anyone who'd like to get involved.  Read below the pic for the details.  If you have a blog and want in on the fun, let me know and I'll link it in this post so we can follow you as well. :)  If you aren't a blogger but would like to participate, you can join us on the GABI (Grin And Bear It) Facebook page to post your pics there.   This challenge can be done little by little or all at once, it's up to you!  If you live in part of the world that is currently celebrating Spring, you can still participate!  I think seeing the same items on the same timeline from a world perceptive would only add to the fun!
See the picture above?  
The words in white are the list of challenge items.  I want to see pictures of everyone's favorite Fall drink, meal, outfit, activity, make up  (think Autumn inspired looks or products) and decor.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 
NEW PARTICIPANT LINKS WILL BE ADDED 
HERE UNTIL OCT 31ST
AFTER THAT I'LL JUST BE ADDING COMPLETED POSTS FROM THOSE ALREADY PARTICIPATING

Bloggers here's how to get involved:
  1.  Whenever you do one of the six things on the list, blog about it with a photo and a little explanation as to why it's your favorite.  Share the recipe or info about the item.
  2. Use the picture above and link it back it to this original post.
  3. Let me know in the comments that you're participating and send me your post URL each time you complete an item.  I'll link it in this post and we'll all be linked together!  
  4. You can do it all in one blog post or whenever you cross each thing off your list.  Your blog will be linked with each item you complete!
  5.  Pin the picture above so others can join in on the link up as well.  
Not a blogger?  That's ok!
You can post your pics in the GABI FB page, your youtube channel or twitter account!
Simple as that!   

All pictures need to be completed by November 30th.

I'd also love to see any other traditions celebrate in the Fall as well.  But that's extra credit. 
Here's our Fall family bucket list
(this is not part of the link up challenge. It's just our annual list) 
  • Cracking open our fall wardrobe - boots boots boots!
  • Photos in the changing leaves (see my first ever blog post  for those)
  • Crafting Halloween costumes
  • Trip to a pumpkin patch
  • Hike through a corn maze
  • Go to a haunted forest
  • Breakfast at our favorite country breakfast pancake house with all our friends
  • Carving pumpkins
  • Giant Halloween party at our friend Pete's house
  • Induldging in Caramel Apple Cider, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, pumpkin pie and strawberry rhubarb pie 
  • Baking Fall treats
  • Make a hearty freezable soup
That's it for us!  
I'll post pictures of each thing as we check the items off the list.

All Bucklister blogs will be listed here!

  5. I love this! There is only one thing on my Autumn Bucket List this year and I plan to fulfill it every day... I think that counts as pretty dedicated participation.

    My blog has quite a bit of editing to be done. I originally started it for something else and ended up deleting all the posts, so the theme certainly needs updating. I didn't link your photo correctly but it's late and will change it in the morning.

    Thanks for doing this, Marie. Such a great idea!

  94. This post made me teary and feel like we could be best friends all at once. It made me teary because my toddler is now a 7 year old, and soon he will not want to be trick or treating and puddle jumping and fall movie cuddle watching with mommy.

    Everything you listed was everything I was excited for with my son, I love fall and Halloween and to me it's the greatest time of the year and I don't ever want it to end. I love sweaters and coats and boots and hats but no mittens and leaves and the smell of Autumn in the air and corn mazes and everything it's all so wonderful. I was trying to remember your blog name and when I googled your youtube name this is the post that came up first and it's made me miss fall so so much. But it's made me want to be in last fall, so that way he'd still be a 6 year old Dracula and not a 7 year old what ever he's going to be this year.
