Fun in the Fall: My Fall Bucket List

I got so much positive feedback on doing a Fall series, instead of just one post, I am launching the series TODAY! I will be posting one Fun in the Fall post each week. The days will differ, so be on the lookout!

You can follow along, as well as join in the fun with me with the hashtag #FunintheFallwithCNH

There will be posts about how to decorate your house for Fall in under $20, Fall fashion in Texas heat, recipes of all sorts, my Fall bucket list, DIY projects, a Fall playlist, and I want to try some other bloggers Fall “how-to”s and give you guys my feedback! There is a lot in store for this series and I am so excited to have fun in the Fall with you!

This is my personal Fall Bucket List, I encourage you to make one of your own. It gives you things to look forward to, helps you plan those date nights that you have no idea what to do, and just makes Fall that much more enjoyable!

I promise to update you guys on my bucket list, what I was able to accomplish and what I wasn’t, as well as feedback! Also, if you guys have any ideas of things I could add to my bucket list, please don’t hesitate to let me know! Especially if you live in the Dallas or Waxahachie area! 

I want to hear what’s on your Fall Bucket List! Share yours and use the hashtag #FunintheFallBucketList on Instagram, Twitter, or even Facebook! Or share in the comments! You can also use the hashtag #FunintheFallwithCNH to share in the Fall fun with me!
