I can’t get over how nice the weather has been this week. Fall is in the air!
Don’t worry… if you are in a part of the country (or world!) that is currently experiencing temperatures warmer than what we deem “sweater weather”, you can still participate in all things Autumn because the season officially started this week.
Last year I shared my Fall Bucket List and thought it would be fun to continue the tradition annually.
It has easily become my favorite season living in Michigan!
Here is what I am looking forward to most this year:
• apple picking
I still have yet to do this in my lifetime.
I couldn’t tell you why.
• all the pumpkin things
This is obvious. If you share my obsession, feel free to tag me in your photos (@hwglamour) and use the hashtag #givemeallthepumpkinthings.
I love seeing what’s out there that I might be missing!
• fall scents
Already all over it, my friends.
Still loving the smell of these wallflowers throughout our house.
• hot apple cider
This is a given that will happen sooner than later.
Trip to a cider mill, anyone?
• visiting a haunted house
One of the first things Scott and I did after we moved up to the Detroit area was visit one of the scariest haunted houses in America.
I hate to love them and actually turn into a huge baby when I’m inside.
I guess I just enjoy the thrill!
• making pumpkin pie
We made pumpkin pies for a Thanksgiving dessert last year and I already can’t wait to indulge. YUM!
• boots and scarves
Part of the agreement to move up north between Scott and I included a free pass for me to slowly acquire a cute winter wardrobe.
(Throwback to blonde hair and hotel living two years ago!)
My absolute favorite thing to wear all year long has to be tall (or combat) boots, skinny jeans (or leggings), a big oversized sweater and scarves.
• holidays with family
For the past two Thanksgivings, we were fortunate enough to have Scott’s father and step-mother in town with us to celebrate the holiday. This year, my mother will most likely be joining us and it’s comforting to know family will be around!
• decorating pumpkins
I swear I’m going to make this happen this year.
Whether we go the old fashioned carving route or I get paint and glitter happy and pull something from my Fall Pinterest board, I fully plan on getting into the season with pumpkin crafts.
• crunching leaves
Don’t act like you don’t to it. I shared my love to crunch leaves as one of the things that I get embarrassingly excited over and I’m not ashamed of it. Go on and fall, leaves, I’m waiting for you!
and last, but definitely not least (speaking of leaves)…
• fall foliage
The tops of a lot of our neighborhood trees are already turning red, and my heart gets a little giddy every time I see a yellow tree on a drive.
Growing up in Florida, I never got to experience “real” seasons and it has to be one of the best things about living here!

Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
I love everything pumpkin! It is still warm in Austin, but I am enjoying a break from the crazy heat even if it isn’t like fall yet.
Did you see this article recently about girls in the fall? Many of them were so me!
Hehehe… yes I did see this article! I actually shared it on the FB page a couple of weeks ago and again on my Friday Favorites. HA! Obviously, I could relate! Ha.
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
I adore fall. I’m going to miss Utah’s fall season SO much. It was my favorite and so beautiful. Here in AZ, there’s not much of a fall season so I’m trying my best to make up for it by going crazy with all the smelly fall scents and foods. An oversized sweater + scarf + leggings + boots was my go-to outfit the last couple fall seasons. This year, I’ll be doing the same thing, but I’m going to have to go a little lighter on the sweaters and scarves. 🙂

I think fall is fun, but summer will always be my fave!
I do like boots, pumpkin stuff, and scarves though, so that is something to look forward to. We went apple picking this past weekend, it was awesome!
I love summer! I think the pumpkin puts fall at the top for me 😉
This is a good fall bucket list. This weekend will be the second time this year that we have gone apple picking. It’s so much fun so I hope you can do this soon.
I done own any scarfs so I really need to invest in some this year because they are such a great way to add to my outfits. They look great with boots too 😉
Thanks! Oh wow, I definitely need to go! Also, you need some scarves girl!
Linda @ Fit Fed and Happy
Ooh, I can’t wait to see what you do with your pumpkins. I want to use one as a soup bowl and another for carving and putting a candle inside. I can’t wait for Halloween!
I love candles inside of pumpkins! It always reminds me of old fashioned jack-o-lanterns before they got all Pinterest-y. 😉
Ahh you have to go apple picking! It is so much fun and although I will admit it doesn’t take long but it is a great way to get out there and enjoy the weather and then you have a million things to think about baking with your sudden over supply of apples 🙂
Can’t wait! Definitely going to make it happen this year 😉
