September Bucket List

Hello Pals! Today I am enjoying a much needed day off - the first week of school really kills ya. Good news: the numbness in my toes is almost gone and my voice is back to full volume. Friday we hung with friends at a reception and got delicious tacos at Street 180 in Provo (go!!!), I spent Saturday up at Swiss Days with my sisters and MIL, Sunday at Church and lounging on the couch and today I'll be hiking with friends and family, getting caught up on laundry and cleaning, and working on my newly enrolled Masters program classes. I need to rest up, prep and recharge for a full and crazy month ahead!

September means the last few days of heat, school getting more regular and busy, The Beard starting his very intense program, his birthday and both of us speaking in church. Yikes and yay! My cute friend Aubry does her monthly to-do lists on her blog and I just love them. Not only am I a crazy list-maker, but I also want to make the most of my fall. Life is just better when we're making goals and seeing them through, rather than just chillin on the couch 7 nights a week.

So here it is. My September To-Dos.
  • Go on a hike (checking this one off today! Bridal Veil Falls with my Holdaway girls!)
  • Make homemade cinnamon rolls on a Saturday morning
  • YogaYogaYoga - gonna try these at home and attend a few classes at Gold's
  • Go to a football game
  • Watch John Adams on HBO GO
  • Finally use those rackets the Beard got me for our anniversary
  • Finish 1 of my courses for my Masters program
  • Wear my summer/warm weather clothes 1 last time before packing up
  • Try a rich fall lip color
  • Drink more water, less Diet Coke. 
  • Soak up the remaining warm afternoons at the pool and in the park with Glen
  • Wear a monochromatic look
  • Throw a fun baseball-themed bachelorette party for my girl Kayla


  1. Your list is a good one! Jealous you're hiking Bridal Veil--hear it's a beauty.

    beauty & truth

  2. We're gonna watch John Adams, too! I bought it last year for a few clips to show my kids, and the whole series was pretty cheap on iTunes, so I bought the whole thing. Neither my husband nor I have watched the whole thing, so we're gonna this month!
    I've actually been buying more Pepsi now (I almost was done completely drinking soda) because I need it to help with headaches and staying awake after I get home from my 45 minute commute to lesson plan and grade!
    Our Fairy Tale

  3. I love your goal to wear a monochromatic look. For some reason, it's something that is SO HARD to pull off! There was this girl in my old ward who could pull off a tan look and looked so put together. I've thought about trying it out, but for some reason it gets complicated. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. I love bridal veil falls. my husband and I went on one of our first dates there! there's also another hike a mile up the provo river trail that's a well kept secret called upper falls. it's a tiny bit harder but it's nice that there is never anyone there.
