Autumn Bucket List – Week 2 Update

A couple of weeks ago, I sat down and wrote my first ever bucket list.

You can find my post here: Autumn Bucket list

The last 2 items on my list are:

39. Document my bucket list with pictures

40. Blog about my progress weekly

This is my second update…  what could we have possibly done over the last week?


#1 – Get Emily ready for Halloween.

I am not showing you yet πŸ™‚ but it involves a wig, bow and arrows and an awesome dress!

#4 – Go apple picking.

Around here, it looks like everybody go apple picking at the same place which makes for a very busy outing with too many people… So, we went the other way and found a nice quiet orchard…

La Fleur du pommier

What’s with the hat you ask?Β  Emily wanted to wear it last week when we went pumpkin picking and we convinced her not to.Β  This week, we just couldn’t convince her not to so she wore it…

We picked and bought many apples.Β  Once home, I made a nice apple and blueberry crumble.

#15 – Catch a Wildcats game

Now that Jonathan works during the day (Yeah for no more overnight shifts), we will probably do this more often.Β  We used to be season tickets owners… I suspect we might be again in the future.

#18 – Make puzzles with Jon and Emily.

We started a 1,000 pieces puzzle… not done yet but I suspect that Emily will come and save the day towards the end of it!

#20 – Help with the United Way campaign at work.

I work with amazing colleagues and every chance we have, we help with fundraisers.Β  We can bake as a group to bring goodies to a bake sale or put a “gift basket” into our United Way silent auction.Β  For the 3rd year, we’ve also issued a challenge to other teams at work increasing the amount of gift baskets or items entered in the auction and increasing the money that is raised.

We haven’t revealed our “contribution” to the auction yet…Β  Once we do, I will show you!

We attempted #17 – Go on a fall foliage drive…Β  The colors were not there yet so we will give it another try tomorrow!

#34 – Change my hair color.Β  I have found a hair colorist and booked a consultation for this week!

Here you have it!Β  Week 2!

What about you?Β  Do you have a bucket list?

If so, is it seasonal, yearly or lifelong?

If you’ve written about it in your blog, please share it in the comments below.Β  I would live to read it!

Autumn Bucket list – Week 1 update

Exactly a week ago, I sat down and wrote my first ever bucket list.

To celebrate my favorite season and my 40th year, I wrote down a lit of 40 items I want to do before end of day on December 21st.

You can find my post here: Autumn Bucket list

The last 2 items on my list are:

39. Document my bucket list with pictures

40. Blog about my progress weekly

So this is my first update…  what could we have possibly done in 1 week!


#35 – Drink a pumpkin spice latte – this was my first PSL and it will be my last.  I couldn’t finish it… this is not my thing, I will keep drinking lattes…


#32 – Perform a random act of kindness – when I bought this Pumpkin Spice latte, I bought my colleagues their favorites too…  Just because 

#21 – Make binders for Emily’s cheer coaches – I believe I have mentioned before that Emily has joined a cheer club, they have a team for athletes of various abilities and I wanted to give our amazing coaches some tools to help them understands and work with their growing team.


#9. Buy our favorite Halloween candies and keep them for us…  I believe I will have to buy more as the box is already open!


#5. Go to the drive-in one last time.  Emily was so excited to see Hotel Transylvania 2.  And the good thing this time of year?  Movie started at 8:30pm instead of 10pm


#2. Visit a pumpkin patch and pick 3 pumpkins.  This was interesting!  It was family outing / physiotherapy appointment…  Emily’s mobility is much better than anything the doctors thought she would achieve but a pumpkin patch…  I never thought about how the ground would be uneven and covered in vines…  We managed, I helped Emily and we found our way around a huge field of pumpkins to find our perfect “future minions”

#7. Hop on a hay ride – There was no hay on the ride but a wagon pulled by a tractor has to qualify!

So, here it is, week 1.

I’ve also picked my future hair color, saw the blood moon and tried to photographed it, Emily is almost ready for Halloween, we bought the paint to tackle our pumpkin art project and bought supplies for treat bags & cupcakes…

I am so ready to continue tackling this list!

What about you?  Do you have a bucket list?
