Fall Bucket List, and a printable-because I love you.

UPDATED 2013 BUCKET LIST HERE!


Yesterday I told you about our Fall bucket list idea, and today I'm gonna share it with you because I can, and I'm feeling generous. Oh, and I kind of like you. In a girl crush kind of way.

Anyway, we've just been talking lately, wanting to enjoy this Fall with Emeline and our little family. We wanted to approach this season with more intentionality. Memory making. Being better about using our time, and figuring out ways to do our best to make the most of it. So we comprised a list of things we're hoping to do in the next few months...probably by Thanksgiving time. After that, we'll work on a holiday's/winter list. Who knows, maybe we'll make it our thing.

Sometimes, seeing fun ideas written out help to hold you accountable. You know?

So I decided to make it cute, and fun. So this is our list (and it may just work for you, too!):

Note: THIS image is not the printable! I would totally not give you a printable with a watermark :)

So the idea is to put it in a frame, behind glass, so you can use a dry-erase marker to check-off your activities as you do them. Fun, huh?

This is mine:


Pretty fun, eh?

Obviously nothing is checked off yet, but soon we will be a checkin' things off. And? If this list doesn't work for you, make your own, or something :) ha. No, really. Or just write extra's in the blank spaces.

We have some of the few obvious things....you know, apple picking, pumpkin decorating, corn mazes....but then we threw in a few extras. We put "Go on 2 dates" because this is an absolute necessity to our marriage. We need the alone time, and we need to make that time together a priority. However, if you're an unmarried/not-dating person, dates with friends to meet for coffee, or other fun things could totally work, too. We all need some good girl time. Oh, and we're totally having a Fall Picnic. In hoodies. Because, why not?

***

So here's a link to the printable for you. When it comes up, just click on it to magnify. It'll print in an 8x10 and will need a little trimming but should fit in a frame nicely for you.

If you want the image in a 5x7, you can resize in any other photo program you'd like.

You better bet your bums that I'll be documenting our way through whatever we get through on this list (which is hopefully most of it), and maybe you will consider doing that same? I'd love to see how a Fall Bucket List works out for you.

And here's to hoping we make lots of fun memories.

***

Happy Tuesday!

Oh, and you're welcome :)

    We have a couple things we always do in fall with our kiddos, and its part of what makes the season so awesome for me.

  54. Oh, I do love yours. Thank you for being so very inspiring. When I made mine out I didn't make it available for print, it was more of a personal thing for my little family. I have it hanging in my 4 year olds magnetic chalkboard.

    Bucket lists are so much fun I did one that was similar for the summer, too. :)

  74. HI! Very cute! I wanted to let you know this is being re-pinned all over pinterest but for some reason it is not linking back to your site....somewhere along the way it just became an image from photobucket, so you may want to search for it on pinterest and comment on it or link it back to your site in some way.... Iended up just googling "fall bucket list images" and found you that way. :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. This is such a cute printable! It took me quite a while to find you though...pinterest can be pretty sucky about linking back to the original source sometimes! I found you though, and I'm going to be sure to pin directly from your site!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hi! I came here from Pinterest. It's 2014 and people still love your Fall Bucket List printable! Any plans of making a 2014 Bucket List? I loved the 2013 version you made, but I don't know how to change the date to 2014. Let me know if you do another one! It's so cute!
