We’re so sad to see this Fall-lover’s series come to an end already. It feels like we’re just getting started! You can catch up on Days 1-4 here, here, here and here. But because we just can’t get enough of this season, we’re going ahead and giving you our
Fab Find: Top Fall Finds
1. Create a Bucket List
Fall is chock full of fun things to do with your family. Print out a must-do list like this one….
Update: We found out who created this adorable printable: Katie at Loves of Life! Go on over to her super cute, super fun blog to get your own printable! Thanks, Katie. 🙂
…or create a custom one using Picnik
for your family and hang it up. I’m putting mine in a frame (with the glass still in it) in the kitchen and will use a dry erase marker to place check marks in the boxes of the ones we did! That way we can use it year after year…let the traditions begin!
2. Fill your home with the Scents of Fall.
Mmmmm….pumpkin pie and spiced apple cider. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love those smells. Load up on candles in scents that remind you of the season (my fav is Autumn Wreath from Yankee Candle

3. Traditions .
Every year we go on the same hayride that takes us to the same pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins and we usually run into friends while we’re there. (Bob White Acres, for those of you who are local. It’s the best!) And we always host a Halloween party before all of our kids go out trick-or-treating together. Monica and Eric usually host at least one firepit and smores night during the Fall, too. It doesn’t matter what it is- just do something this year that you’ll want to do again next and the year after that. Traditions make the season something to look forward to!
4. Wear a Dressed-up Sweatshirt
You know you want to wear sweatshirts all the time in the Fall, but you also don’t want to be that frumpy mom. Mix that comfy sweatshirt with some style with this DIY old sweatshirt makeover.
5. Get Saucy
Maybe one of your new traditions will be apple picking?? I’m from New England and we take our apple picking very seriously. We go back up north every fall to pick in Massachusetts.
You already know that I love making pies
, but apple sauce is a family favorite too! It tastes amazing and makes my house smell even better. This site
has some awesome recipes for all kinds of different sauces.
So, there you have it, our Fab Finds for Fall…
Now, we want your help… Leave us a comment letting us know what else needs to be on a Fall Fab Find List. Just to give you a little incentive, we’re giving away another Starbucks giftcard to a randomly chosen commenter. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte would totally be my number 6 on this list.
