happy fall & bucket list update...

As I type this, I am watching Hocus Pocus, the world's greatest Halloween movie!

Did you know today is Autumn Eve!?! Yes, tomorrow is August 1st!  And you know what that means!  I start celebrating fall NOW... well, at the stroke of midnight! ;)

I have a few Fall Bucket List updates!!

SwEeT bEaN's FaLL BuCkEt LiSt: 
  • Attend my town’s annual harvest festival where giant pumpkins are weighed
  • Go pumpkin shopping with Momma; buy a big one with a funky long stem and a few little ones too
  • Enjoy pumpkin treats like a pumpkin scone and a pumpkin latte… and pumpkin ice cream too
  •  Exchange Great Pumpkin gifts with Momma
  • Order & enjoy the yummiest apple spice syrup in a fun cocktail DONE!

  • Watch the best ever Halloweenie movie Hocus Pocus DONE!
  • Read my favorite Halloween books including: Twisted Sistahs, Scarecrow Pete, Miss Fiona's Stupendous Pumpkin Pies, The Very Best Pumpkin & other Autumn related children’s books (do you notice a theme in the books I linked? All by the same author and illustrator! And their Christmas books are even better!)

  • Dress Penny in her pumpkin costume, just for fun
  • Carve a pumpkin with Hubster & Pen
