bucket list

Links of the Week

After planning a wedding, many brides enter a post-event planning slump of boredom. This website, an offshoot of wedding blog 100 Layer Cake, shows you how do fabulous family and kid events, complete with invitations, tablescapes, favors, etc. The party continues!

My new go-to salad recipe.

I do hope we all know what IKEA hacks are – awesome updates to cheap furniture? Love these ones.

Some pumpkin-spiration for my Harvest Bucket List #5.

One of the funnest home tours I’ve seen in awhile. It’s definitely of the “more-is-more” persuasion.




Harvest Bucket List

I love fall and back-to-school season. While growing up, I would spend my summers obsessively planning out what new school clothes I wanted and then once I had them, what outfits I would wear. I got the deepest pleasure from hand-selecting each and every school supply, and organizing them in to my backpack, taking into account convenience and of course, cuteness (for instance, in 9th grade my best friend and I got matching lime green label-makers). And that sweet day when you finally got to use all your new stuff? Almost as serendipitous as Christmas. Back to school is a Type A personality’s dream. In my adulthood, I no longer go back to school, but I have an apartment to decorate and people to cook for. It just never ends! I love it.

Lately I’ve been seeing Harvest/Fall/Autumn Bucket Lists on Pinterest, and I feel inspired to create my own to get in the spirit of the season. It’s not the most “family friendly” list, as there are no pumpkin patches or stomping through crisp leaves, but bear with me.

What do you think of the list? Any blaring omissions? I will be working my way through these tasks until I lose interest and start obsessing over the holidays instead, and charting my progress on this blog along the way.
