My Fall Bucket List

Fall has officially arrived here in North Texas. Well, according to the calendar! It would be super awesome cool if the weather would get that memo too! Every year I promise myself up and down that I'll make a bucket list of things to do around town & then, you know, actually check them off. Since the short one is 5 now, I decided the time has come!

So, without further ado, here's my super awesome Fall Bucket List!

1) go to the State Fair of Texas
2) make a pumpkin pie (since the husband doesn't like pumpkin, that means I get it all to myself!)
3) have at least 1 pumpkin spice coffee from Starbucks
4) go to the pumpkin patch
5) go apple picking
6) go see the fall decorations at the Dallas Arboretum
7) paint some pumpkins
8) go on a hayride
9) go to a fall festival
10) build a fire in the fireplace
11) go camping & eat s'mores
12) make an art collage with leaves
13) have a chili & cornbread night
14) make homemade chicken soup
15) create a Thankfulness tree (for Oct & Nov)- Done!
16) make pumpkin bread
17) make rice crispy treat turkeys
18) take fall pictures of the family
19) play in a pile of leaves
20) make caramel apples
21) watch "The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
22) watch "Charlie Brown Thanksgiving"
23) watch some football  (this is an all-Fall event for me!)
24) go on a family bike ride (when the weather cools off some more)
25) break out my long sleeve shirts & my UGG boots

What about you? Have you made a bucket list for Fall? What are you looking forward to the most?

I do not know if you have a recipe for homemade chicken noodle soup or not. Love the one we do. Take a whole chicken, or legs and thighs put them into a soup pot, cut up some carrots, can add onion and celery if you like, salt, pepper, whole cloves, parsley flakes and water. Put on the stove at medium heat around 1 pm. Stir ocassionly and add salt. After a couple of hours, peel and cut potatoes (about 5-6) and add to the pot. you might have to add water during the afternoon. The soup can take 3-4 hours to cook. When the chicken and potatoes are soft and tender, cook noodles in another pot. When done cooking, put noodles into a bowl, pour soup over and enjoy!
