2015 Fall Goals

It’s officially fall now! Everyone’s favorite season, or at least that’s what the blog world makes it seem like. I absolutely love fall. I know it basically only means winter is creeping up on us. While I’m not looking forward to snow I am looking forward to crunchy leaves, cool weather, wearing clothes I actually like, allllll the beautiful colors autumn brings and hot drinks!

The older I get the quicker times flies by. It used to feel like each season lasted for ages but now it seems they’re gone in the blink of an eye. I mean I know I complained all summer about the heat but dang, how is summer over already?! I want to make the most of my favorite season so I made a little list of goals I want to accomplish this fall.

This fall I want to…
Go to a haunted house! Or at least try my hardest to convince friends we have to go… I’m not going to a haunted house alone, and I already told Jeff it can’t be just me and him. I’m such a wuss I think the only way I won’t have a heart attack is to have someone there in my group who is more frightened than me. My only two haunted house experiences were when I was much younger. The first time I just buried my head in my brother’s back the whole walk, and the second time I turned around and walked out about two minutes in. Haha. I’d like to conquer this silly little fear.

Press lots of leaves. I don’t think I’ve pressed any plants all summer long and I suppose that’s fine because fall is my favorite time to press anyway!

Visit the abandoned greenhouse. I’ve visited the abandoned greenhouse twice now, once in the winter without snow and again in the summer. Ever since the first time I have been waiting eagerly to see it in the fall.

Accept the question “Did you do that for Halloween?” with grace. Or find a funny response… Normally I avoid having hair that coordinates with a holiday (orange near Halloween, green near Saint Patrick’s Day, red near Christmas, etc) but I really don’t want to dye my hair right now. I’m still loving the orange. I’m dreading hearing people ask that question though. I know it doesn’t sound that bad but when you hear it constantly and from people who say it with thinly veiled snark it gets old reeeeal fast.

Don’t forget how awesome the beach is. I kind of avoid the beach in the summer for the most part since there are so many people there. I love the beach in the fall because it’s so peaceful. I’m not longer in the habit of going though, I need to get back into the swing of it.

Take lots of photos! This season brings the prettiest colors, I want to capture them all!

Pick at least one bouquet of wild flowers. I love picking wild flowers and I used to take the time to pull over and pick myself bouquets fairly but honestly can’t remember the last time I did that. This apartment needs more flowers!

Visit the sunflower garden. There is a giiiiiant sunflower garden that was planted in memorial of a young girl that passed from cancer back in 2007. I’ve been seeing photos pop up of it a lot these last few days. I have to go see it in person.

Keep up the biking momentum! Fall weather is my favorite to bike in. It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold. I want to keep on racking up those miles.

Spring Fall Cleaning. I don’t understand spring cleaning seeing as the nice weather means you won’t actually be in the house very much. I’m all about that cool weather cleaning. My big thing I want to get all sorted out is my kitchen. Under the sink is a mess, and I know my cabinets could be neater. Also, it’s just me living here I don’t need ninety nine million mugs.


What are some of your goals for this fall? It’s not too late to make some if you haven’t already.

  • I will have to make some goals. We always try to go to a haunted house or two. Before we had kids, Hubby and I used to work for a haunted house and it was always so much fun! Even though I know lots of the "tricks of the trade" they still scare a good scream out of me.

  • hope you hit all of your fall goals. for me, i will be avoiding all haunted houses and anything scary. i prefer not to pee my pants, especially not in public.
    regarding the hair and people's questions, i choose to think strangers bold enough to ask someone they don't know such questions are generally curious. (doesn't matter what their reasons actually are, i assign curious and innocent to folks like that.) i find the best reaction to be a happy, enthusiastic, "NOPE! I FIND THE COLOR TO BE SO HAPPY AND PRETTY ALL YEAR LONG!" helps if you say it with the biggest smile you can muster. who knows, maybe one day they will decide to color their hair to find some of your joy. it is my hope that no matter what you decide, others don't dictate how you shine.
    love to you.
