Fall Bucket List

So as the weather is changing I ( as well as the rest of the world) is beginning to feel the fall itch
I love summer but fall brings a southern girls favorite things
So here is my bucket list

1.  North Carolina State Football and Tailgating
It isn't fall without college football, cookouts and tailgating

2. The North Carolina State Fair
I love the fair. The first time I came to Raleigh to see Andrew in college he took me to the state fair. 7 years later and we haven't missed one! 

3. Apple picking
I love apple picking! After a successful trip there is apple butter, apple cider and apple pie cooking in the Tucker house!

4. North Carolina Zoo
I love the zoo and always feel like fall is the best time! The cool weather, leaves changing and amazing animals is a perfect weekend day date!

5. Corn Maze/ Pumpkin Patch
Andrew and I do this every year. Its so much fun and it is a team building activity! Then we can pick pumpkins, go home and carve and roast pumpkin seeds!

6. Halloween
In college I frequented the Hillsborough hike for Halloween but this year I guess I have to be more grown up about my Halloween decisions :(
However I love any holiday about dressing up and candy :)

7. Thanksgiving
I love Thanksgiving. Our families spend the holiday together and it is such a great time! I also love the following movies that come on when the holidays start 

While I am not as bad as the lady I pictured below, my family does map out a game plan and we are there at 3am. It is a tradition!

So what are you looking forward to most about the fall??


  1. First of all, I am loving your new blog design! And I can't wait for football games and the fair! We are wanting to go to the FSU game, but I'm so impatient waiting on tickets to go on sale, ugh!

  2. I'm so excited to fall to officially start! I'm looking forward to all of these things, especially football and the fair!
