I’ve decided to do season bucket lists. Sometimes you get sick of waiting for things. Like a trip around the world or to be on the best seller list.
So I’m writing a bucket list I can accomplish right now. This month. There’s kind of a deadline to it, if you think about it.
I made a fancy collage thing for the tack board in my room, and it’s on now. I came up with nine things.
1. Go to the pumpkin patch.
I’ve heard of people going, and yesterday, I saw a picture of a girl looking cute at the pumpkin patch on Instagram, and I was suddenly hit with the panic that I may have missed my chance.
I love the pumpkin patch. It’s just not fall without it.
2. Eat candy corn.
This may sound like a no brainier to you, but we never have candy corn in our house. I’m sure the answer is “your local convenience store, Rebekah,” but I honestly don’t know where to get candy corn.
But I will find it!!
3. Drink a pumpkin spice latte.
I guess it is a white girl thing to do. I’ve seen the meme’s just like anyone else. I just love pumpkin pie. And any warm yummy drink that tastes like pumpkin pie is a friend to me.
4. Buy fall boots.
This is the most expensive one on my bucket list. I try to keep costs down to a minimum (otherwise, let’s be honest, Thrift Store Girl isn’t doing it).
The truth is: I just want boots. *insert cute smile here*
5. Make a pumpkin decoration.
My coworker made these pumpkins out of cloth with one curly stick out the top, and I’m hooked. I’m dying to make one, or a family, for my own house.
6. Wear a scarf at least once.
I live in California. It hasn’t been very cold lately, but a scarf will happen one of these days!
7. Bake something with pumpkin.
I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread. . I made pumpkin muffins months ago and confused everyone into thinking fall came early this year. (That may have just happened in my mind.) This won’t be a tough task to accomplish.
8. Take a picture with a pumpkin.
That girl on Instagram at the pumpkin patch made me want to photoshoot with a big orange thing too. Pumpkins are so friendly, don’t you think?
If a witch had a dark mansion with cob webs and eerie walkways and creaking floors, put a happy pumpkin in there and suddenly it’s a warm Thanksgiving home.
9. Find a dry leaf.
Final entry on my list is to find a dry leaf, which may sound ridiculous to you, but where I live in the desert, there really aren’t trees or grass. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this one.
I give myself extra points if I can find an orange leaf. That’d be awesome.
