Not In Jersey: Fall Bucket List Wrap Up Fall Bucket List Wrap Up - Not In Jersey

Fall Bucket List Wrap Up

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


Thanksgiving officially marks the end of my Fall Bucket List, and we are certainly planning to do Thanksgiving tomorrow! For today though, I thought I’d take a look back at our fall and see what we managed to accomplish.


1. Apple Picking

Gabbie had dance, but Dave, the boys, and I went apple picking in September.

2. Try Making Caramel Apples

We have an apple shaped caramel melting pot and I wanted to try it out. It melted the caramel, but the caramel didn’t quite stick to the apples. It was great for dipping in slices though!

3. Rosh Hashanah

We celebrated Rosh Hashanah in September.

4. Drink Apple Cider

I think we did, and we also plan to drink more tomorrow. It’s one of the things I’m bringing for our group dinner!

5. Eat Candy Corn

I may have eaten this by myself…and Dave also got me candy corn for my birthday!

6. Pumpkin Patch

We had our yearly pumpkin patch visit!

7. Decorate Sukkah

Sure did!

8. Make Chili

I made and shared my vegetarian chili recipe.

9. Make Soup

The weird thing is that I can’t remember making soup this fall! I make chicken soup pretty often, so I must have done so within the past few months!

10. Bike Ride When The Leaves Change

The leaves really only just changed over the last two weeks, and we’ve been busy, so we didn’t do this. Yet.

11. Take Fall Photos

I normally take my fall photos at the pumpkin patch, so if we assume that’s what I meant by this item, then yes, I did it!

12. Attend a Festival

Last year we went to so many festivals in the fall and I had wanted to repeat some of them. We did not. We were at the Louisburg Cider Mill during Ciderfest though!


13. Wear Scarves

I put this on the list because I always forget to use my scarves. I did wear them a few times though!

14. Make a Thankful List

This post from last week counts, I think.

15. Thanksgiving


Overall, we did not do too badly. Now I need to decide if I should make a winter list!
