Happy Fall, Y'all! Our Autumn Bucket List


Can you believe fall weather is here? It was such a hot and humid summer with temps in the 90s for weeks on end. The cooler temps are going to be a blessing with all that we have going on. Troy and I have been invited to join our blogger friend, Leslie at Once Upon A Time And Happily Ever After in creating an Autumn Bucket List for 2020. 

Here is what we have planned:

LSU Games - We will be watching the games from home and will not be able to tailgate but it will be exciting to see how LSU does this year. We will certainly miss Joe Burrow but Myles Brennan has a lot of potential to win a championship game this year!

Engagement Party/BBQ Couple Shower - Someone in our family is engaged to be married next year. We received an invitation and RSVP'd to attend their party/shower next month. It is the first gathering we will attend since Covid.  

Company is Coming! - My sister will be visiting from Texas in October and we are excited to see her. The last time we were able to visit in person was Christmas of last year. 

Celebrate a Birthday - It's hard to believe that our youngest daughter will be 25 in October! We will celebrate this milestone with her next month.

Visit our Granddaughters - We had planned to visit our oldest daughter and her family over Labor Day weekend. But the hurricane changed our plans. It will be good to see them again because we have missed them so much!

Hunting Season Begins - Troy will be making plans to go deer and duck hunting very soon. He will probably ask our son and brother in law to join in the action. There will probably be some Fall fishing trips thrown in the mix, too.

Ladies Night - I plan to attend a ladies gathering later this month. We will have a outdoor picnic on the patio. 

Celebrate more Birthdays! - We have lots of November birthdays in our extended family, including our son, my Mom and yours truly. I can't believe I am turning 50 this year! Age is just a number, right?

It will be a wet and rainy week due to the new storm in the Gulf, "Beta." I have big plans to make a homemade chili for us. I have been wanting to enjoy some Chili Fritos; but, it has been way too hot. Hope y'all have a great week!

Happy Fall, Y'all!

  1. Thank you for joining me!! Great list of activities. Goes to show Covid can knock us down but can't keep us there. The ladies night sounds like fun. And the engagement party. Glad you will be able to celebrate your daughter's birthday, be with the granddarlings and host your sister's visit. My sister is coming for Thanksgiving. Yay!!

  5. Hi! I'm joining in too for the Autumn Bucket List. I'm trying to get back into blogging again and LEslie encouraged me to join in. Sounds like a great list you have going. I live in the PNW and we are finally welcoming the rain to blow away all the wildfire smoke we were inundated with for about 2 weeks, YUCK!

  6. Greetings from South Dakota. This is also my 1st link up sharing my fall bucket list. Good too see another avid hunter & fisherman husband. My Feller plans to hunt antelope here in a couple weeks. We just got back from a week of camping & doing a little fishing. We put some fish in the freezer to have along this winter.
