Wow, I can't believe October is already here! Autumn is just flying by, though it STILL doesn't feel like autumn since Southern California is perpetually stuck in summer temperatures. Nevertheless, I've been trying to enjoy the autumn season as much as I can, and one of those ways is participating in the Countdown to Halloween (along with a bunch of other Halloween fiends). And today kicks off my 31 Days of Halloween, where I try to blog as much as possible during the month of October. I don't think I'll attain my goal of a post a day this year, but I'll still be sharing lots of ghoulish goodies with you!
To kick things off, I compiled my annual autumn bucket list, which is a tradition I like to do every year. It helps me stay organized during this crazy month and acts as a reminder for all the activities/events I want to do in autumn. I won't have as much free time as I normally do this year due to work and personal commitments, but I'm hoping to get as much autumn and Halloweenie fun in as possible!
My 2015 Autumn Bucket List:
-Visit a pumpkin patch
-Drink pumpkin tea/pumpkin flavored coffee
-Watch as many horror movies as possible
-Bake pumpkin muffins, bread, scones, cookies, etc.
-Watch as many Halloween-themed movies, tv shows, specials, etc.
-Burn pumpkin spice wax melts/candles 24/7 so my house always smells like an autumnal wonderland
-Buy a new Halloween blanket
-Drink apple cider
-Wear scarves, boots, sweaters (quite the challenge in SoCal)
-Sample pumpkin or autumn beers
-Crank up the Halloween music
-Host a pumpkin carving party or horror movie night
-Hand out vegan candy to trick or treaters
-Send Halloween cards to friends and family
-Come up with a costume to wear on Halloween night
-Watch Halloween cartoons
-Visit the Halloween display at Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach
-Go to a haunted house, haunt or hayride
-Read The Halloween Tree and other Halloween-themed stories
-Paint my nails orange
-Check out horror movies in theaters
-Roast pumpkin seeds
-Try new vegan autumn recipes
-Eat as many pumpkin-based foods (that are vegan) as possible
-Make creepy and/or creepy cute Halloween foods
My bucket list is significantly scaled back this year, but I think it will still be a great month! And I can't wait to share my posts with you!
What's on your Halloween bucket list this year?
