Currently October 2017 + Fall Bucket List

Posted October 4, 2017 by shooting in Personal / 38 Comments

I’m linking up today with Anne from In Residence for Currently. I’ll also be linking up with What’s Happining Wednesday and What’s New With You?

styling: new clothes! My sister’s friend’s mom (say that five times fast) gave me a bunch of her old clothes because she was moving and didn’t really have the room. I’ve been trying on different things in the past week and loving it! After losing weight this year, it’s been a lot of fun to actually wear different clothes! Not everything fits yet but I think they will in the next year so I’m holding on to them!
saving: Well…I haven’t been great at saving money lately (see next point) but I really do want to get back into that. When I get money from the blog I always put that in my savings, so a little here and there. I’m hoping to work some extra hours at my job this month- all of that would be nice to put into savings! If you want to help me save some more money, sign up for Ebates with my affiliate link. When you make a purchase (I think you have to spend $25 on one website) you’ll get $10 and I’ll get money too! After, you get money back when you make purchases at TONS of sites like The Book Depository – for all you readers out there! Thanks in advance! This is a great way to get money back on all your holiday purchases!!
searching: for all the fun Halloween and fall things (If you live in or near Cincinnati, Ohio, check out my post about October 2017 events here). I love this time of the year and there are always so many fun activities to see and do! I have a lot planned already, but hopefully I can squeeze in even more!
picking: Nothing…no pumpkins. no apples. Sigh. I wish my nieces and nephew were in town already so we could do all the fun Fall things like hayrides and farms! Next year though!
makingI made a clothespin wreath for a friend’s little girl (she’s due in November). The wreath is so that she can pin cards and/or photos of the baby and hang it up! I think it turned out really cute. I’ll be doing a DIY post on it soon!
I also wanted to remind you about my Hunting Prince Dracula prize pack! Remember: International entries get the book, U.S. entries get everything! You can enter to win until October 30th!!

Fall 2017 Bucket List: What's on yours? #fallbucketlist #ontheblog Click To Tweet


The fall season is my favorite, and since it doesn’t end until near the end of December, I’ve also included a couple of more winter type of things that will occur before Christmas! I’m pretty sure I can cross off all of these since I already have some of them planned. Regardless, I’m so excited for all things fall! What’s on your fall bucket list? If you have a post of your own, let me know, and I’ll come visit!

  1. Im awful at saving and really need to work on it. LOL . My boys are 8 and 12 and have been begging me for a scary movie marathon. I will have to find some not so scary movies. Caramel apples sound so good right now! Happy Wednesday!

  2. Love this list! I am definitely searching out all the fun fall/Halloween things to do around town, too. You just can’t miss out on October fun! 🙂

  3. I miss all the New England (where I’m originally from) fall activities. It’s not quite the same in FL lol but I go all out closer to Halloween with corn stalks and hay bails for decor around my house.

    And we’ve actually had a cooler week so yay!

    For What It’s Worth

  4. Yay for new to you clothes! That is always the best! I can’t wait to see how the wreath turns out! Some of my favorite baby gifts were ones I knew people had made.

  5. I like the bucket list! I may join in on some of these ideas! 🙂 I’ve been searching for a local place that does apple picking!

  6. I’ve love to go to a fall event as well like apple picking or a pumpkin patch. This November it’s on my bucket list to go to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. I’ve always wanted to go but still haven’t been.

  7. All of the things on your bucket list sound amazing! I’m happy I did one so far, I ate some caramel apples and I don’t regret it for a second 🙂 So good!

  8. I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone Lauren and I need to start my Christmas shopping soon. Have the flu at the moment which I caught AT the shops. Go figure. I love new clothes and it was so lovely for your sister’s friends mum to pass them along to you. You’ve done so brilliantly with your health goals Lauren and it’s nice to have a little reward <3

  9. yay new to you clothes! that is so awesome. i LOVE ebates. i use it a lot for work and then of course personal use as well, i totally buy most of my books from places like The Book Depository just to use ebates. of course amazon is awesome and all but i’d rather wait for shipping vs missing out on ebates when amazon doesn’t offer it. i do not have a fall bucket list because… well, honestly, i’m not a fan of fall! i know. am i even a blogger? lol. but seriously. i turn into the biggest scrooge/grinch on like the 1st of september. we’ve had lovely weather though so i didn’t turn into a grinch until the 1st of october this year. i keep trying to un-grinch myself but i just despise the cold weather, and anything under 80 is cold to me lol. but maybe i’ll try this year. we’ll see 😉
