Our Fall Bucket List #LifeIsASpecialOccasion


For the past few weeks my mind has been on the holidays. I’m gearing up for my BIG Gift Guide and sponsors are wanting posts already just to get you started thinking about the next couple of months.

While this time of year is important, it is hard not to get lost. It’s important to remember that family memories can be created any day of the week. It’s ALL special.

Hallmark is on the right track. They just aren’t about the holidays – Hallmark is about life.
Fall always holds special memories for my family and this year is no different. We’ve done almost everything on my Fall Bucket List.

We’ve made Pumpkin Bars with Cheesecake Frosting and Pumpkin Popcorn Balls and themed Chocolate Covered Pretzels.

I’ve eaten pumpkin ice cream. I’ve drank multiple pumpkin coffees.

We’ve even already had one Trunk or Treat Event that Hubby participated in for work.

We went to the pumpkin patch which is my favorite Fall activity. While we were there P’Diddy got to ride on all the old tractors. This is three year old heaven!

Today we scratched another one off our list. Leaf jumping. We barely have any leaves in our yard, but there was one tree where they were starting the fall and the boys were excited!

There is just one event left. Pumpkin carving. This is a tradition where Hubby takes the boys to each carve their special one. They draw a plan up and start to work (getting messy!) while I sit inside and patiently wait to be surprised with their creations. I’ll have to show off pictures next week.
Hallmark can be a great resource to help with our everyday projects. A lot of great ideas on their site.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t walk past a Hallmark Gold Crown Store without strolling inside to see what is going on…

  • Pre-Season Stock-Up Event  Oct 14-27  (Discounts on cards and gift wrap)
  • Holiday Open House  Nov 8-11 (Holiday kick-off to the season with weekend only deals on lots of products)
  • Snowvember Weekend Event Nov 22-24 (Discounts on snow/snowman related products)
  • Keepsake Ornament Gift of Memories Weekend Dec 6-8 (Weekend offers on Keepsake Ornaments and Keepsakes fun)

I used to work at a Hallmark store and I’ll tell you that is super fun to work there, especially this time of year! Always something exciting going on.

I’d love to hear how you celebrate everyday life!
