Fall- my favorite season of them all! We are TWO days away from the start of the season and every year, there are several things I MUST do before it ends, so here is my fall bucket list:
Tailgate at a football game.
Go apple picking.
Buy school supplies.
Watch Halloween movies.
Decorate with tons of pumpkins and DIY fall crafts.
Travel through the mountains to see the leaves.
Visit the county fair.
Carve a pumpkin.
Make an apple pie, apple butter, apple pie, and homemade apple sauce. (Can you tell I like apples…alot?)
Stuff myself during the holidays.
Go on a hayride.
Eat s’mores at a bonfire.
Wear a hoodie, while snuggling up with a cup of hot chocolate.
It’s fall, y’all!

Trick-or-treat! Smell my feet! Ok…hopefully, not.
Going trick-or-treating on Halloween is just one of the many fun parts to the holiday. So, why not make giving out candy just a little bit more creative? Add that extra Halloween flare with putting the candy into vinyl gloves and closing the top with a ribbon.
