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?

Last 2013 outing to the Drive-in

The summer is done. We are well into fall season when we consider school started 3 week ago.

Most campgrounds end their season during Labor Day weekend.

Outdoor markets do the same.

Yesterday, Jon told me the drive-in was open for one last weekend and the movies are Emily friendly.

Sometime, the first movie is ok, the second not so much. Most times, Emily wouldn’t care for either movie…

But tonight!!! For $20 entrance fee we will see Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 & Grown Ups 2.

This is going to be fun!

We started by a stop to the best Root Beer place. Dinner at A&W

Then we stopped at the Bulk Barn to fill up on drinks and snacks.

And now, we are waiting for the sun to go down.
I remember loving the drive-in as a kid and really enjoying it as a teenager!

Back when I was a teenager, we had to use those big grey speakers… now, we just need to turn the radio on a specific channel. I like that, Pascale in the car, mosquitoes and black flies out of the car!!!

Most of the Drive-in are closed now.

The season for it is so short in our part of the world.

So, we try to do this as often as possible.

Emily loves it, she has the best spot in the vehicle.

Although tonight, it looks like she might have to share!

From our family to you! Have a lovely Friday night!
