{Fall Bucketlist Update // Pumpkins & Friday Night Lights}

We have been checking things off of our 2015 Fall Bucketlist like a boss! Last Friday we took Mason to his town's Homecoming Football game. We went with our good friends, the Rochelle's. I think the boys had a blast, but started to get bored by halftime. For me, it brought back so many memories. Being a cheerleader, Friday Night Lights were my life for all of my high school career. And if I said I didn't miss it, I would be lying. But, I am so thankful and happy I get to do this with my family now.

We had fun! And Mason got to see our Vice Principal {who he adores} that recently got transferred to the Intermediate.

And another thing we checked off the list is buying pumpkins! This is one of my favorite things to do each Fall. I always go for the different looking pumpkins. I like different colored ones and ones with a big funky stem. Mason goes for the smaller pie pumpkins, but he too likes a good stemmed-pumpkin. Not gonna lie - picking out pumpkins this year was kind of frustrating. About a month ago I started seeing pumpkins at our local Walmart and HEB. I didn't buy any because I thought it was too early. That was my first mistake because those babies sold like gold. Our Walmart has only a tiny bin of them left and they are all of the wart-filled pumpkins that no one wanted. And HEB is the same way. Thankfully we found some at a town over at the Brookshires. Mason, of course, picked out a pie pumpkin with a good stem and I got a big jack-o-lantern and a white pumpkin. And then when we were at the pumpkin patch this weekend Mason picked out two tiny little pumpkins and I got a funky green colored pumpkin. LOVE!!

  1. The crate and pallet pumpkins are such a great touch! We have pallet pumpkins half way done :)

  2. Such a fun night! And I'm loving your pumpkins! We bought some and plan to paint and carve them this weekend :)

  3. I'm still hoping to make it to a pumpkin patch this season! It's supposed to rain this weekend so we'll see! I love your pumpkins, so fun! And I can't wait until Wyatt is old enough to go to games! He's just now gotten to where he'll watch it some on TV and yell, "run, run, run!"

  4. Your porch is adorable! I wish I would have picked up a Cinderella pumpkin!

  5. Oh your porch looks so good. I LOVE that Cinderella pumpkin. My girls have some tiny ones the pumpkin patch calls baby boos.

    Looks like you had fun at the game!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
