Fall Bucket List

Fall Bucket List

Setting some goals and ideas for the upcoming season was never on my radar until I joined some bloggers for this kind of themed post. I’m one of those people that work well with lists, and feels fantastic about crossing off items that I’ve written down to do. Therefore, I decided to continue with this endeavor for autumn and put together a fall bucket list. And if you at all interested in how I finished up with my summer bucket list goals, you’ll be able to see the updates tomorrow.

If you joined in by creating a fall bucket list, I hope you’ll add your post to the linkup below. It’s so fun to see what other’s are planning. Even if you don’t blog, or didn’t join us, you can still see what other women have planned! So with no further ado, here is my fall bucket list.

 

List for the fall bucket list

Home

Considering that we just moved into this place 2 years ago, you wouldn’t think anything would need to be done. But let’s be honest. When I first move into a new place, I put things away just to clear out the boxes, and tend to make it the same as it was in the former house. Well, that’s all fine and good, but I also love to rearrange and reorganize on a regular basis.

Organize Purses

For some strange reason my purse collection has grown considerably since I’ve started this fashion blog. Therefore how I organize them needs to evolve also. I’ve decided to clear out this wardrobe and make it my purse storage.

Wardrobe organization

Right now it is full of t-shirts, undies and my dressier purses. My everyday purses are in my walk in closet. Well, that’s just plain silly, as they should all be together, right? And luckily, we put together a bed frame in June, that has drawers under it. Two of the drawers in the bed frame are empty, so I plan to relocate these t-shirts to one of the drawers and my undies to the other and have all of my purses here in one place.

Inside of wardrobe to organize

Showcase Rob’s Crosses

Rob has a collection of crosses that people have given him along with ones we have picked up on our travels. We used to have them glued to a large mirror. But we have since moved the mirror and now need to find a better home for these crosses. Unfortunately some of them got damaged or ruined when we took them off the mirror, but we can always find more.

Cross collection

Rearrange Office

So here is small view of where I type these blogs everyday. I don’t have a better photo because right now it’s even messier, with no hope of cleaning it up just for photos. So this is the picture I took after we first moved in.

My husband wanted a better layout for us since there isn’t much room to work side by side. So we traveled to AFW to find some new desks and figure out a better layout.

This desk we have been using actually used to be my father’s drafting table from the 1960’s. I have a feeling, we will be trying to get rid of it, if anyone is interested?

Office space

Clothes

I don’t plan to buy new clothes every season, but it would be impossible for me to say that I don’t buy any. There is a difference between planning and doing, right? Needless to say, it’s nice to think about the gaps in my wardrobe, and keep an eye out for what I “need.” Right now I have longer cardigans, OTK boots and plaid on my fall bucket list for new clothes!

 

Outings

Of course any outings that we will be doing will have been planned ahead of time. As much as I love the idea of spontaneity, I am a planner through and through.

Seattle Meet Up

We are planning to visit my 40+ cohort, Sherry, from the Fab Collab Posts along with other wonderful women. You will surely see a post all about it after the first weekend in October. If you want to see it as it’s happening, feel free to follow me on Instagram and check out my stories as we go along.

Christmas?

I realize that Christmas actually falls in the winter season; however, mom, Nancy, Rob and I usually plan on a fun activity together for the day. Therefore, we really need to get our heads together and decide what we will do for this year’s holiday. Last year we spent a couple of days in Vegas together. Many years we go out to a nice dinner and see a movie. All of this instead of exchanging gifts!

Eating

I added in the idea to practice my korma recipe. This is far and above my favorite item to order when we go to an Indian restaurant. I’ve been thinking that it’d be fun to try to make it myself, so the gauntlet has been thrown! I’m going to try to make this for the book club meeting that I am hosting in November, so I better get practicing! Of course, if I’m not successful, I will just order some from the restaurant and serve to the women anyways!! So if anyone has the best ever korma recipe out there, will you share?

The other item I added in for the fall season is making ice cream. Not that this is really the season for ice cream, but since it’s my husband’s most favorite food (besides pizza), I thought it would make him happy to read this. Should I try pumpkin ice cream?

Blog

Part of the aspect of blogging that I enjoy so much is finding new and different companies and ideas for my readers. Of course, I should ask you if you enjoy that too? Hopefully, you do, because it’s on my radar now! I know earlier in the year I discovered a Finland company, Coruu, that made silicone jewelry which is so lightweight. And then just recently I introduced you to Jambu who has melded comfort and style into their shoes! If you know of any companies that you would love me to approach, then feel free to let me know!

Knitting

Knitting pattern

My wonderful neighbors bought this kit for me when they visited Iceland, so of course, it needs to be my next knitting project. Trust me when I say, I’ll be working on it for awhile. I used to be able to knit a sweater in about a month or two. However those days are long gone, now that I spend a ton of time on social media for the blog.

I am changing this sweater to be a cardigan by knitting in steeks, so I can cut it up the middle. My neighbors had also purchased these fabulous buttons at the same local store in Iceland, so I figured it would be a perfect way to use them.

Thanks to one and all of you for your support. It means more than you know. 

Keeping in Touch

  • Cindy

    Wow! I’m feeling lazy now! I don’t know what is on my bucket list this Fall, but I better start thinking about it! Let’s see…always…eating healthy. Down 17 lbs in the last 3 months! 10 more to go! So I guess regular exercising should also be on the bucket list. Seems it’s always on my list!! I gave away a bunch of clothes to friends a few weeks ago, so my closet is organized. Now just keeping it that way is a weekly organizational project! Visiting my dad and family in November. Fashion purchases? IDK! Probably go on a no-spending October/November for clothing! There…I came up with a few. 😉

    • Wow…what a great accomplishment with the weight loss, Cindy!!
      I need to go on a no-spending spree. But there are so many fun items out there that I don’t have. Like red boots…..
      XOXO

  • I love these! I need to make a Fall bucket list of my own!

    • I think it’s helpful…not that I wouldn’t get anything done otherwise, but it gives me guidance!!!
      If you want to join in for the winter bucket list…let me know and I’ll get you in touch with Leslie??
      Thanks Angie
      XOXO

  • Looks like you’re having busy days ahead..!
    My uncle has a small brick wall in his terrace where he displays all of his crosses. They’re from all over the world and they’re displayed from the ceiling all the way to the floor, they look amazing.

    • That’s so cool about where your uncle has his crosses, Lorena. Do you know how he attaches them on the brick?
      XOXO

      • Ha! that’s a good question. I have to visit him in a month or so. I’ll check it out and take pictures if possible 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing your fall bucket list! I feel like it’s sparked my own brainstorming about what I need to accomplish in the next few months. I’m really excited about your Icelandic sweater kit because we saw those sweaters everywhere in Iceland, and they’re truly beautiful. I need to organize my purses too, especially my rapidly expanding clutch collection. We’ll have to share strategies!

    • I just came back from B,B & B with a couple of things for my purses!! I’m hoping something works…ha ha!!
      I’ll keep you up on the progress!!
      XOXO

  • Helena “TheQueenofCollage” Ash

    Like you I like to create a good list and feel great when I’ve accomplished things on them. #ablogginggoodtime

    • It is a good thing, right, Helena?
      Sometimes I think I wouldn’t get anything done otherwise!!
      Thanks!
      🙂

  • Purses are such a challenge to store, aren’t they?!? I haven’t been able to come up with any good solutions other than limiting them to what space I do have. Also, does OTK stand for over the knee? Woot – you rock if so, in that I’m a bit nervous to buy them myself but can’t wait to see them on you!

    And so cute that you and hubby share a desk. ☺

    • OTK is Over the Knee, and I bet if you tried a pair, you’d like them more than you thought. Especially if you wear skirts or dresses or even leggings at all in the winter because they really keep you warmer!! I started out with a very inexpensive pair to see how I’d like them. Now I have 3 pairs!!
      And I’m heading to B,B, & B today to see what I can find to help with the purses—wish me luck!!
      XOOX

  • This is such a good read. I should make my own bucket list as well, and that should include rearranging my office (if that’s possible). ha!

    Jessica | notjessfashion.com

    • It’s funny how our office can get out of control, right, Jessica? And I’m usually such an organized person, but …..
      We started putting my new desk together yesterday, so hopefully it’ll be more organized soon. Now the question is, how long will it stay that way—ha ha!!
      XOXO

  • Hey love! Your autumn bucket list appears to encompass all areas of your life. Love that you thought to include ideas and plans for your blog. I should have done that in hopes of committing to a blogging schedule. I had forgotten about the silicone jewelry you shared with us, so glad for the reminder. Want to look for a piece for my mom’s Christmas.

    I keep saying it everywhere I comment but this six weeks of working has whooped up on me. I am so exhausted and disorganized. I don’t feel like myself when I am like that.

    Cannot WAIT to see your finished sweater. That is a lovely pattern. And a thoughtful gift.

    Your office and the desk in my loft look very similar. Really just a nook. But I have so much scrapbooking stuff piled underneath my desk that I can hardly scoot my chair up close enough to sit and work. Need to give that area some serious attention this fall. And I love the unique crosses in Rob’s collection. Hope you find the perfect way to display them.

    • I think I might have been a little too overanxious in my to do list, Leslie! However, I did get my wardrobe cleaned out today, and we started putting together my desk!
      I can’t wait until that is done!!!
      XOXO

  • Your office looks like mine Jodie! I am the worst at being organised! I write to do lists and forget to read the list! I do have a wardrobe clearout on my list though. Now that’s something I can’t forget if I want to hang anything extra! xx

    • I’m so glad I’m not the only one, Laurie!! The funny thing is I go through spurts–I get organized, and love it. But then life gets crazy!!
      OXOX

  • Nicola Bromley

    I’ve just written my own Autumn Bucket list but it’s slightly different to yours, just ways in which I want to enjoy the season. I like the idea of adding goals as well, one of my goals for this month was to tidy my kids playroom and I eventually managed to complete it yesterday! Good to be able to tick that on off the list! #ablogginggoodtime

    • I may like your way better Nicola!! Maybe it’s better to enjoy the season, instead of worrying about getting things done!!
      XOXO

  • I like how you organized your list! I may have to try this format for my Winter bucket list. Fall makes me want to live in long cardigans…I’m only 5’3″, so most cardigans are long on me, whether or not it’s intentional!

    • I’m the same way, Amber!! I’m only 5’2″, but most of my old cardigans are short!!
      Thanks!!
      XOXO

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    I don’t have a ton of purses, but I do have a lot of clutches. I do need to clean out the 2 purses I use the most. I’m sure I have 6 months of receipts from every place I’ve been in them. I love that your going to devote a whole storage space for yours! I have a few fall items I’d like to purchase, too… I’m trying to save up for some fall OTK boots. I’ve been wanting a pair forever.

    Carrie

    • I used to be so organized, so I don’t know what’s happened to me…ha ha!! But I will feel so much better once I get my purses all in one place!!
      You definitely have to get some OTK boots—they are so fun!!
      XOXO

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

  • Christie Hawkes

    You’re going to be busy this fall, Jodie! You inspired me with the very first one–organize purses. I actually have several nice purses kind of shoved on a couple of shelves. I suspect they’ll stay nice longer (and get used more) if I displayed them better. Thanks for sharing your list and good luck!

    ~Christie

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one that has purses all over, Christie!! I haven’t quite figured out how to make it work in my wardrobe. I was thinking of using stickable hooks on the sides, but then It seems like there’d be a whole lot of room in the middle??
      Let me know what you come up with for yours!! Maybe we can help each other!!
      XOXO

  • Emma Jones

    This is a great, busy but balanced to do list! I should probably create a fall list, but it’d be full of boring things like call the carpet cleaners, clean out the garage before it gets to cold to do it, and more boring chores. I love your fall clothes list, maybe I’ll have add some of those to my list to!

    • Although, the things you listed are good things to get done. We cleaned out the garage last spring, and it felt so good. Maybe not great post material—but I bet everyone needs to do it??
      Thanks Emma!!
      XOXO

  • Great bucket list Jodie! I need to work on mine! Happy Friday!

  • Great idea thanks for sharing with us.

      Have a great weekend!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    What a great list, Jodie! So thorough with some fun crafty ideas in there for creativity. I’m all about home organization but ya gotta have tools!

    • Thanks Terri!! I love thinking about what i can accomplish for the season!!
      XOXO

  • Judy Gramith

    I like it when you reveal a bit more of your personality in these interesting ways Jodie. I think a list of goals is very telling!
    I’m really excited to see the sweater. That kind of pattern is not for the faint hearted knitter I’m sure! I’ve always loved sweaters that are connected to a culture and this one looks very Scandinavian!
    The cross collection gathered by Rob is very intriguing. I’ve read that it’s best to gather collections in one area together because they’ll have more impact that way. Perhaps you have a small wall somewhere that you could paint a color complimentary to your decor and then arrange the crosses there in an interesting way ( like a picture grouping). It looks like he has some really cool ones and the background stories are always the real deal!!!

    • We had Rob’s crosses on a wall in our other house, but ran out of room in that area. That’s why they got transferred to the mirror before this. So maybe we will do that again…it’s such a great idea!!
      I was just working on the sweater before I came up to the computer. I have about 8 inches done on the body area, and that part is quite easy!! I love knitting fair isle, because it’s more challenging!!
      Thanks Jude!!
      XOXO

  • Sue Loncaric (Sizzling Towards

    I love your list Jodie! Can’t wait to see your knitting project I’ve just rediscovered knitting this year but of course now it is almost Summer here.I would love to know more about your business side and what you do to collaborate with companies. I’ll look forward to your posts.

    • When you get back from your vaca, Sue—email me and maybe we can connect/talk!! I’d love to share everything I know!!
      As for knitting, I still do it in the summer too, only because our evening are usually cooler and it’s freezing in our house—LOL!!!
      XOXO

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie, you put me to shame. I can’t even get my meal plans done for the week. I always feel like I am barely keeping my head above water. Ha, ha. Teach me how to do this! Great list and I hope you get all these things checked off. – Amy
    http://stylingrannymama.com/

    • I feel the same way Amy. Not that I have it all down, but I do make our lunches for the week on Sundays. Rob is the best helper and we eat the same thing for lunch all week. Luckily he’s good with that, because I know some people snub their noses at that idea. To me—it makes my life SO much easier!!!
      Besides…I’m retired, remember. It’s not like I go to a job like you do!!!
      XOXO

  • A good mix of fun & organisation…but pumpkin ice cream? Yep, I’m definitely seeing a pumpkin thee through these Fall posts…

    • I’ve never been the hugest fan of pumpkin things, but it’s intriguing yes?? Do you have a recipe??
      XOXO

      • Ummmm not for ice cream lol. Is there really such a thing? Pumpkin macaroni cheese, however, is well worth making…just saying.

  • That’s a great, comprehensive list, Jodie! I love all the organization, etc. items and that there are also a lot of fun things on the list!

    Have a wonderful fall!

    You have so many great things in this list J. I did a Summer and Fall bucket list last year and I must do one this year, too. Fall in Michigan is magical except it is 88 degrees today and I am totally fine with that. Fall can wait. =)

    Happy first day of Fall tomorrow and welcome by and join the linkup, today. 😉

    • Thanks Ada!! It’s fun to do these lists, just for some goals and new ideas!!

  • Eileen Flanigan Sinda

    Love all of your goals for Autumn. One of mine is to make several more crocheted presents for this Christmas. I am not on the sweater level, but can make some nice scarves, blankets etc. I have just brought out Autumn decorations, did the inside and now to decorate outside. Need some Mums. We haven’t changed over to warmer weather clothing yet, so I need to go through my clothes from last year and decide what needs to go and if I NEED anything new. Starting plans for Thanksgiving as we usually have it here. Nice to know others are making lists too.

    • I love hearing what others are doing Eileen….so thanks so much for joining in!! And can I just say, that if you can make scarves and blankets, you can certainly make sweaters. It’s all about following directions, and it’s so convenient to be able to You-tube something you don’t know or understand!! Just sayin’….
      I may need to start changing out my clothes now. I’ve never done that but for some reason the stash keeps getting bigger. Hmmm, I wonder why??? LOL
      I have to ask you about T-Day. Do you always keep it traditional, or do you try new things?
      XOXO

      • Eileen Flanigan Sinda

        Hi Jodie,
        I started reading about the Konimari method of clutter cleaning and the also about the Essential Wardrobe idea. Konimari recommends taking everything out of you closet, holding each article of clothing and deciding if it makes you happy (I would add fits properly, looks good on your body as it ages, or you wore it at all last year.). If it doesn’t do these things, thank it for its service and put it either in a give away or trash bag. The essential wardrobe idea is sort of a condensed wardrobe of essential, well made items that you wear frequently. I think they advocate 10 items, but I can’t quite quite go that far. However, I am learning to let go of things I really don’t like or wear, or are out dated, or don’t fit. I try to do it Spring and fall. Makes life a lot easier.

        I do watch a lot of You Tube videos on crochet, but I am just a beginner. Maybe I will eventually get to a sweater! Who knows?

        Funny you asked about T-Day. We used to always do it traditionally, but have mixed it up in recent years. A couple of years ago we went with the grandchildren to Disney World. We like to do little day trips to hike in the mountains sometimes too. A couple of years, we found a Thanksgiving Buffet and did that. My son talked me into getting a turkey dinner from the grocery store, because as he said, “why should you be in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove on a holiday?” Love that boy! Daughter does a deli buffet or made ahead casseroles we all bring for Christmas. We would rather be spending time together rather than worrying about what is cooking. Mind you we always decorate to get into the holiday spirit.

        What do you do?

        • I love that declutter method. Not that I’ve done it per se, but I’m all about purging. Of course, for some strange reason, my closet has gotten a little out of control lately….hmmmm!!!
          And I love your T-Day activities. Not that cooking is a bad thing. But really it’s all about the family and having fun, I think! We still do the cooking thing for T-Day to a degree, but we try to make Christmas more about spending the day doing other things!! My moms still love all of the traditional recipes when we cook, but I’m the one who loves to scour Food & Wine for something new and different!!!
          XOXO

  • Oooh! I love the sweater! I crochet (though sometime I might teach myself to knit) and am finally nearing the completion of a kimono duster I began years ago. (I’ve unraveled it several times until I made a pattern I liked). This is such a fun list!

    • Well, you are quite impressive with your crocheting if you’ve just made up your own pattern!! That shows how creative you are, Mary!!
      XOXO

  • I like the creative items on your list, Jodie! I’m travelling a bit this fall so I’m deferring my home organization plan to winter when the weather here keeps us indoor more.

    • Ha…well that could be smart Natalie. I may have gotten over zealous in what I hope to get done in the house this season. The only reason so much got done this summer (which I’ll be talking about tomorrow on the blog) is because the neighbor was doing it all!!
      XOXO

  • Mother Daughter

    I just wish I would do a list and follow it, checking things off means nothing to me. lol Of course daughter being who she is makes a list for everything, could be why she is more productive.

    • It’s funny how one of you is that way and the other isn’t. There are times I wish I could be more lackadaisical because who needs the stress at this point in my life?? LOL!!
      I have a feeling much of this was over zealous, but I really love organizing, so I’m hoping I get the purse project done!!

  • Barbara –

    Working on getting my list up today. My father in law has crosses from all over the world. HIs solution was to paint a section of his office wall and display them there, but he had so many that eventually they could all not be put up at the same time!

    • That’s such a great idea Barbara. We did that at first in our other house, but for some reason then put them on the mirror. They were outgrowing the space we had dedicated at that time….but maybe we should do that again!!
      XOXO

  • Juhli Newkirk

    What a nicely varied list! I like the idea of picking key pieces to buy each season and may steal that one.

    • It kinda keeps me on track with my spending Juhli (hah—who am I kidding, nothing keep me on track, but it sounds good)
      XOXO

  • donnaduck

    Great bucket list, Jodie! I never made one before, but I’ve been thinking about them ever since you posted the summer one! I think making one up per season is MUCH less daunting than one for the whole year (let alone one for your whole life!). I’ve got a small one in my head right now, but looking at your home organizing note, I think I’ll be adding that to mine too! When you have limited space, as I do, organizing is essential to keeping messes and clutter under control.

    Wishing you much success in getting your Fall list accomplished!!

    • I’d love to hear what you come up with Donna. I really love organizing, and it always makes me feel so productive. Now the question is why doesn’t it stay that way? LOL!!
      One of these days, I need to reorganize my mother’s closet too—just today we spent over 15 minutes looking for a pair of leggings—–ugh!!

    • We actually just talked about going to a pumpkin patch—It’d be fun even though we aren’t huge into Halloween!!
      Thanks Lauren!!
      🙂

  • Great bucket list — and kudos for being brave about before-pictures!

    • Right?? I don’t usually show my areas when they are messing—but just keeping it real, Michele!!
      XOOX

  • Super motivating! I need to get my list going 🙂

  • I am not a list person. They make me feel like a failure.

    I’m sad I won’t be seeing you at the blogger meet-up : ( It was too hard to make it during Canadian Thanksgiving. It was just becoming too complicated so I cancelled. I know I’ll be missing out on loads of fun.

    If I lived closer to you I’d take that drafting table off your hands in an instant. I’ve wanted one forever. Ah well.

    • Oh, that’s such a bummer about the meet up, Suzanne. But I totally get it. I’m thinking you need to road trip down to these parts for the table…I’ll save it for you??
      XOXO

      • I am simply not a road trip kind of gal anymore. One too many trips back and forth from coast to coast in Canada with a pug, four birds and all my plants in a crappy car has cured me of that. Thanks for suggesting you’d hold it for me though : )

  • Wow! You have quite the bucket list for fall! You go, Jodie! I really love this idea for a post. And the Seattle meetup sounds fun – can’t wait to see your pics on IG! 🙂

    • I have a feeling some things will get put on the back burner….but I’ve always been hopeful that I can get a ton accomplished!
      Thanks Lindsey!

  • I’m exhausted reading your list. My fall bucket list usually includes putting the garden to bed for the winter, decorating the house for fall (done!), and taking a drive every weekend to see the fall colors.

    • Did you notice that there is no mention of outdoor activity, Amy??? Because that’s what kills me. And you have the hugest yard and garden ever!! We had a small yard, and it was still too much! That’s why we moved to a place where we don’t have to take care of a yard—and it’s heaven to us!!
      XOXO

    Nice!!! That list has me thinking of a few projects I should tackle… Fun post! Inspiring!
