All The Things Fall + SB Giveaway

September happens to be one of my favorite months. Scott, both my sisters-in-law, and I all celebrate birthdays. Football is in full swing. And, all the things pumpkin! September also kicks off one of the most glorious seasons of all, FALL!

Isn't September lovely?

Though the fall temps haven't quite reached Southern California that hasn't deterred the mood to get into the fall spirit. I mean, I've probably consumed at least 37 pumpkin spice lattes since their early release two weeks ago. So, let's go ahead and chalk that up to a successful start to the season.

I haven't pulled out the decorations, but that's coming. Like, this weekend.

To celebrate this fabulous season Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me, Elizabeth from Chasin' Mason, any myself are hosting a Fall Bucket List to share all the adventures and fun that only fall can lend.

Does that list not make you ache for weekends filled with family fun? Beginning next Tuesday, September 23 (which just happens to be the official first day of Fall), link up with us and showcase what Fall bucket list items you've checked off.

So pick an item, or create one of your own (!), start celebrating the goodness of Fall and come back this way next Tuesday and link up with us!


Grab our Fall Family Bucket List Button. Just right click the photo and add it to your post. Be sure to tell your readers how to find one of the 3 hosts: StephanieElizabeth, or myself.

The Fall excitement doesn't quiet end there… To celebrate the unofficial start to fall, pumpkin spice lattes, and birthdays (mine is today!), I'm giving away a $25 Starbucks gift card. All you have to do is enter in the raffle below. Happy Fall to all!

  15. Oh gosh! I was re-reading our fall bucket list and to be honest with you, I am SO excited about almost all of the activities! But if I had to pick one, I think I would say the pumpkin patch. I don't know why, but I look forward to it every year! It's just so fun and festive :)
