{2016 Fall bucketlist update #1 // Hallow PJS // PSL // Porch // Wreaths // Wardrobe}

Goodness gracious I love this time of year!! The colors, the weather {when it cooperates}, the festivities, the coffee, the overall feel of fall, the pumpkins...everything! We have been so busy checking things off of our 2016 fall bucketlist and enjoying every minute of it. Sharing the first round of things today.

Buy Halloween PJs - full post coming on this with our Halloween Pajama and Costume link-up. details here. It's getting tougher and tougher to find seasonal pajamas for Mason! He's so tall that I have to buy pajamas in a couple sizes up. But, we found some and loves them...if you couldn't tell by the picture below.

Get a PSL - I really wanted this in a warm latte form, but with the temps still in the 90s I had to go with a Pumpkin Spice frap. I couldn't wait any longer. It was pretty delicious, though! I enjoyed it while perusing Home Depot shopping for mums.

Decorate our porch for fall - I am sure this will change a few times before fall is over. But for now, this is what it looks like. I made a new fall wreath and I am currently working on a Harvest sign like this one to add to my porch. I think I may have it say Pumpkin Patch rather than Harvest since I already have a harvest sign on my wreath. And we're looking for some more fun pumpkins, too.

Make wreaths to donate to our church - I made three wreaths and donated them to the church for the 26th annual fish fry, craft & bake sale. All three wreaths sold! I don't have any pictures from the actual fish fry because we were so busy working!

Update my fall wardrobe - I'm excited about this one! I needed new clothes something fierce. I finally found some boyfriend jeans and a Utility Vest that I like and I got my first pair of booties {I know!}!! I also found a new fall purse in the prettiest olive color that I have been obsessed with.

13 down...20 more to go! We will be knocking quite a few of them out this weekend. What is your favorite thing you've done so far this fall? Do you decorate for Halloween? Or just go straight to fall? I didn't even pull out my Halloween decor this year. Part of me wishes I had, but I am loving the fall pretties.


  1. Wow! You are attacking your bucket list. I love it all. Your wreaths are beautiful! Great job! The front porch looks so great with my bench. ;) Where did you find the utility vest? I want one so badly.

  2. I guess I should have come to you for pj advice, because I struggled this year because of sizes! I love your porch, your wreaths, and your new clothes... I love it all!!!!

  3. The fall pjs are darling :) Chelsea @ http://thewilliamsjourney1.blogspot.com

  4. I love all of this! My boys wear pjs up a bunch of sizes too. It's kinda weird how small pjs run! Your porch looks great. How cool that you made wreaths and they sold! And I really love the fall wardrobe updates! That flannel looks awesome! I too got booties for the first time! Well, that's not true, I did have a pair before, but it wasn't comfy. Now I have two pairs that I actually wear!

  5. Wow what a list! Loving it all! I sooo need to get myself a PSL. Just one at least, right? And hey yay Friday!!!
