Happy October! Tis the season of pumpkins, falling leaves, and Halloween. Today I’m sharing Our Family’s Awesome October Bucket List! My husband is excited to decorate our new house for Halloween with the girls as it’s one of his favorite holidays. We won’t take down our fall decor, but sprinkle the jack-o-lanterns, spider webs, and spooky ghosts amongst everything. We have a busy month ahead of us, but I want to make sure I slow down and soak in the best memories of this season.

I put together an October Bucket List for our family (just like September!). Here is to hoping we can complete it all by November.
Our Plans for October
From our town’s Annual Celebration to Annabelle’s preschool Scarecrow festival to a Halloween themed Cousin day, we are booked every weekend. My in-laws are making their first big trip to visit us the third week of October and I’m so excited for them to see how the house has changed since we bought it in June. We also may have another visitor (my husband’s best friend) fly in from California sometime this month and the girls will be so excited to see their “Uncle.”
Brandon and I are celebrating nine years of marriage on the 17th and taking a trip to Cape Cod and Nantucket to celebrate. If you don’t already know, Cape Cod is where Brandon proposed 10 years ago, so I’m excited to spend some time in one of our favorite places with him (and no kids!). We have never been to Nantucket and we are looking forward to exploring the quaint island.

I have this tank top and cardigan on repeat! The tank top is on sale for $6 and I found a few cardigans in a variety of prices.

I love your list!! There are so many great things to do in New England. My husband and I love cape cod as well, it’s so gorgeous.
Fall is just the best and October is prime fall time. I cannot wait to go halloween costume shopping with my girls and watch they get so excited to put on those costumes for our upcoming Halloween parties and trick or treating. I also can’t wait to do a smores + fire pit in our yard now that it gets darker and cooler earlier! Yay October!

Yep, my list is pretty similar! Except watch Hocus Pocus is on the list every day! (as are Casper, Halloweentown, Teen Witch and all the other good ones!)
In a couple weeks I’ll also be going to Disney’s Halloween party to celebrate my birthday! Woo! Trick-or-Treating at Disney is going to be the besttttt
Love this! Enjoy your fall! It goes by so fast.
So much fun ahead!!! Lyman orchards has AMAZING pumpkins!! We went today and so much fun!

Bucket list for my October? Um.. make it through my vacation in Florida! I know it sounds funny, but my boyfriend is meeting my family for the first time, and it’s his birthday so it’s going to be expensive!
Great list! We went pumpkin picking in Avon last weekend and it was so fun. Have an awesome time on Nantucket! I’ve never been either, but can’t wait to go. I keep saying I’m going to spend two weeks there on my 40th birthday. If you’ve never read Elin Hilderbrand, be sure to pick up one of her books before – she has the best novels about Nantucket.
What a great list! I love October and the Fall! Pumpkin everything 🙂 I love spending quality time with family and friends while enjoying all the fun activities! Looking forward to seeing all of your adventures!
I love how you have “collect colorful leaves” up here. Its the simple things in life that matter.
