My Autumn 2017 List

I was inspired by Kelle Hampton and her summer 2017 list. I loved seeing her and her family scratch things off of their list of to-do’s, knowing that they squeezed every bit of life out of the summer season. Some of the to-do’s on her list were: epic lemonade stand, drink from a coconut, go to the movies on a rainy day, twirl in a sundress, buy corn from a midwest farm stand, have a water balloon fight, family night swim party, and so much more. So, seeing that her list ranged from big to teeny tiny small. Mine does too.

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch
  2. Carve pumpkins.
  3. Bake cupcakes with Jena.
  4. Bake cookies for work.
  5. Bake sweet potato bread.
  6. Bake whole-wheat chocolate chip cookies.
  7. Hike the arboretum with Jena.

  1. I love you Sarah Marie Thigpen Weichman and your list making! I can’t wait for the things you have to do with the Weichman’s!! I need to make a list now too! There are a few things on your list that I would like to do as well! One thing in particular, I would love is picking apples, where can you do this in Alabama? I’d also like to go to a winnery, although not on your list, i’d Like to do so with you and Trey as I don’t believe Jeff would 😉.
