Ok, technically Monday was the start of fall but I’ve been celebrating since Sept. 1 so whatever. I live by my own rules.
Before we dive into fall let’s check out how summer went…
Finish cleaning out room & paint nursery Organize basement
- Read and finish 3/4 of Erin’s Book Challenge
Find out gender & plan reveal event Assist in baby shower prep Continue financial goals Visit Aub in Florida!! Finish the registry
For the most part, I did well! My half of the basement (which is party supplies, serving dishes, and holiday decorations) is cleaned, organized, and shelved. K’s half of the basement is a bunch of drums. That’s on him. Lol
The nursery is empty & painted. The gender has been revealed. (I blogged it, too.) The baby shower is in motion and the reins have been handed over to my mom & mother-in-law; I’m completely out of it 🎉 Registry is done with me adding random things every now and then.
Still working on financial goals. Definitely did not read enough for Erin’s Challenge.
And now… *drumroll please* …the best season of the year! FALL!
- Attend baby shower (& send thank yous)
- Host Halloween Party
- Put nursery together
- Get 3/4 Xmas shopping done
- Go to TWO fall festivals
- Add mums & pumpkins to the house
- Celebrate my bday & our (dating) anniversary
- Read 3 books per month
- Get Christmas decor up before baby arrives… maybe
- Give birth
Some of these are bound to happen… like #1. Lol
Pretty much all these goals revolve around baby arriving on time- not too early, not too late. And there’s no guarantee of that soooo… in the wise words of Elsa I am prepared to let it go. Ha.
What are your fall goals? Anything fun on your fall bucket list?

Such fun goals. I am especially exited about the last one – I can’t wait to “meet” her.
I don’t have fall goals but my cousin is coming for a few days in November and I am EXCITED. I haven’t seen her since we met up in New Zealand in 2016!
Haha- I’d say I’m especially excited AND nervous about the last one. Lol! Thank you, friend ❤ (And thank you for the birthday gift. You're so so sweet!)
You will have so much fun with your cousin!! That sounds like such a great time!
Great job on all of your Summer goals, and I hope Fall is just as successful. You have some fun things on there!! I love Fall – it’s my favorite too. I hope to attend a couple Fall Festivals as well, and do some spooky/mystery reading.
Thank you 🙂 I’ve already been to two fall festivals so yay! Possibly attending an apple orchard this weekend- we’ll see!
3/4 of xmas shopping done???? Girl – in my dreams. I need to set that as my goal.
Hahaha- I figure I’ll be a little tied up come December. I’m going to try to knock a bunch out now!
September 1st IS FALL thank you very much bye.
Agree agree agree!!
I start Fall on September 1st too. High five.
I still smile and feel so surprised every time you talk about baby! Eeeek! I am so excited for you.
Haha! It’s the best season- why would I want to miss out on those key days?
I can’t believe how close to the due date I am. Less than 8 weeks! Yikes!
You kicked summer’s butt with the goals! Sounds like a fun Fall planned, have so much fun at your shower! I love mums, fall makes me so happy 🙂
Thank you! I can’t believe how much summer stuff I checked off. I still don’t have mums or pumpkins but I’m planning to change that this week!
I did the mums and pumpkins this week! I’m going to do very understated indoor fall decor this year too. I’m hit or miss with that.
I have NOTHING. I wanted to wait on mums and pumpkins until travel was over, but then shit hit the fan with Lylee. And my motivation to decorate inside has been 0 since all that. I’m feeling better this week and I think it’ll make me happy to do some decorating so that’s my plan.
I love your kamikazi Fall date rules – you’re my kinda lady!!
Ha. I figure I don’t have any control over baby’s arrival so there’s no sense in stressing about stuff. Lol
i’ve already started christmas shopping as well. i like to be done by october so that i dont have to rush around….it also gives me time to keep an eye out for sales bc paying full price for anything is for chumps lol
I agree. I think I get better deals and have better gift ideas when I don’t try to cram it all in at the end of the season 🙂
