Due to the fact that I was lying out on the hot sand on the first day of Fall, I was slightly in denial that the season had actually arrived. Naturally, though, if you checked my closet you would most definitely think otherwise. Fall has sprung in my wardrobe! Get it?
Anyway, I figured I'd come up with my little list of Fall Must-dos. Perhaps we can call this my Fall Bucket List? You see, I'm the kind of person who has a list of a million things I want to do and try and make but I never get around to them. So now, hold me to it!
Can you believe I have yet to experiment with all the nail art trends going around? I paint my nails and that's about it. Bo-ring, right? So, what better way to get into the game than to dress my nails up for the Fall holidays? Candy corn nails, anyone?
Pinterest. Gotta love it. I currently have over 4,000 pins but I can count on one and a half hands the number of pinned recipes that I've actually tried. And my DIY pins? Forget about it. So, here are the recipes [and hopefully I'll find a few more] that I will be making!
1. I found this Crock Pot Apple Cider. Are you kidding me? It's a must!
2. I love chopped salads and this Southwest Chopped Chicken salad looks divine!
3. I have been wanting to make chili and this Skinnytaste White Bean Chili might just be the one.
4. If the name of the Green Goddess Grilled Cheese isn't enough to make you want it, then I don't know what is.
5. Red Velvet Hot Chocolate w/ Cream Cheese Whipped Cream. Enough said.
Bake Pumpkin Bread
While we are on the topic of food, let me just tell you that I am in love with pumpkin bread. I had my first piece of the season last week from Starbuck's during my road trip and it was so delicious. I can't wait to try a healthy pumpkin bread recipe like this one. Perhaps this weekend?
Decorate Pretty Pumpkins
I have been wanting to do something fun and different for Halloween pumpkins. I am loving all the glitter pumpkins, painted pumpkins, etc. so maybe this year will be the year to do a little something special like these gorgeous white pumpkins I found.
It wasn't until I moved to Utah nearly three years ago that I saw people wearing TOMS shoes. I honestly wasn't sure what to think at first. I mean, I wore sandals and I wore heels and boots. There wasn't much grey area. Needless to say, after living back on the East Coast for a year now, and with Fall rolling in, it's time to buy some of those bad boys. (But really they are good boys because for every pair bought is a pair donated!)
Wear My Boot Socks
I think I bought some boot socks last Fall, although it could have very well been two Falls ago. Unfortunately, they have gone unworn. It's time to change that! I love layers and I think boot socks are the perfect way to add some layers (and some extra warmth!) to an outfit. I even found a DIY tutorial using old sweaters!
That's all for now! What am I forgetting? Better yet, what is on YOUR Fall Bucket List?
