I like that Linz did an update on the progress of her fall bucket list. If you asked me, I would have said I failed miserable this season, but when I actually look at it, I hit six of ten. Go me.
1. Try making apple cider cream pie-with the twist of a ginger cookie crust.
2. Run a race-with another 5 miler happening next weekend.
4. Host a housewarming party- it was 90′s theme and fantastic!
5. Attend a Fall Festival- multiple actually, Bmore is good for that.
6. Brunch with bottomless mimosas- it ended up being pitchers of fancy sangaria (even better!).
And it should be noted, appreciated and laughed at, that Murphy (Linz’s baby) and I wore the same Halloween costume this year. Magical. I only wish we had been in the same place to have a Robin Thicke off.
Let’s move on to our winter lists!
1. Try acupuncture
2. Make bread/rolls to accompany all the yummy soups I make during this season.Try at least 3 recipes.
3. Check out 34th street in Hamden.
4. Read.More.Books. I have really fallen out of this habit since being in grad school. Cozy days indoors seem like the perfect time to restart this habit.
5. Make a winter playlist. I keep saying I’m going to do this one- it is happening!
6. Visit one of my besties in NYC.
7. Knit a new piece- I’m hoping it will be a very big chunky infinity scarf.
8. Make up a recipe for chocolate cinnamon rolls with raspberry filling (I literally dreamed up this idea).
9. Get my blogging grove back. Post at least two times a week.
10. Make my ultimate Baltimore/Maryland/East Coast bucket list. I don’t see myself on this side of the country forever. I need think about all the things I want to see and do while here.
1. Cultivate a Christmas card mailing list and send cards out.
2. Host a holiday party at the house.
3. Try a new baby-friendly brunch location (carried over from my Fall Bucket List.)
4. Stolen from Jess: Read.More.Books. Aiming to finish two by New Year’s, and two more by then end of February. (I was reading every day up until a couple of months ago, but then I ran out of books in the series I was reading. I guess this one includes a step one: find a couple of good books to read.)
5. Try out two holiday cookie recipes.
6. Put together at least one great holiday outfit that I feel fabulous wearing.
7. Invent a recipe. Setting the target low on this one: I feel a dearth of creative juices, so if I get one, I’ll be happy.
8. Start a Christmas tradition.
9. Stolen from Jess: Get my blogging grove back. Post at least two times a week.
10. Sing every day until New Year’s.
