Now that we are into December, it feels like autumn flew by! If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen that a lot has changed! I’m finally accustomed to my new job, I traveled back to Kentucky for my brother’s wedding, and I got a boyfriend! 2016 has been a great year and I’ve learned so much and improved myself as a person. I want to make it go out with a bang, so back in October, I created an Autumn bucket list! I didn’t achieve everything on it, but I did most! Here is the list and I’ve crossed off what I finished!
Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Tailgate a football game
- Go apple picking
Buy a new fall candle Watch a spooky movie Go to a tree fair Bake pumpkin bread Make a Halloween costume
- Drink apple cider
- Watch Hocus Pocus
Make a homemade pie Carve a pumpkin
- Drink mulled wine
Decorate the yard Drink a pumpkin beer
- Make caramel apples
Pick a pumpkin from a patch Go on a hay ride
- Host a chili cook off
- Go on an autumn hike
Go to a corn maze Go to a haunted house Drink hot chocolate Spend time with family
- Go trick or treating
- Go to Oktoberfest
I didn’t go home for Thanksgiving, but I celebrated with friends. We threw a giant Friendsgiving party for the Portland community and around 100 people showed up. The organizers rented out an empty restaurant so there was plenty of seating and counter space for people to put their pies and side dishes. The best dish was swedish meatballs! So good.
It has been a busy fall season but winter seems to be busier! My boyfriend, Shan (pronounced Shaun) and I are going to Vancouver, Canada this weekend, so I will be sure to post lots of photos from that! I’m also going home for Christmas, so that is a nice trip. Then, in January, I have my work holiday party AND Shan’s! This season is going to be a lot of fun!
