October 2017 Bucket List

Bando Agenda, ShopBando, flatlay, October Bucket List

I've been so behind with my posts - this was supposed to go out last weekend but I wasn't feeling well and work kept me busy so here it is today: My bucket list for the month of October. 
This month, I'm looking forward to just relaxing and doing things that make me happy. September was just such a busy time for me and all I want to do now is wear warm sweaters and crawl under blankets with a mug of warm apple cider.

  • Make apple cider from my slow cooker: I did this for the first time last year and it turned out so great! We had fun getting the apples, making juice, adding our spices, and since Brian has a pretty heavy whiskey hand, it was a big hit at the Halloween party we brought it to. I'm so excited to do it again! Speaking of Halloween...
  • Find the perfect Halloween costume: I'm not the biggest costume person. Last year I went as Holly Golightly and the year before that I was the 11th Doctor from Doctor Who. They were pretty minimalist costumes that didn't require much commitment nor effort and I don't see my laziness when it comes to Halloween changing any time soon. I need something that's going to be easy to put together but very recognizable. If you guys have any suggestions, send them my way!
  • Read The Raven: This is my annual October tradition - reading the classic Edgar Allan Poe novella. I'm excited to pick up my copy again!
  • Go vegetarian for a week: This is something I'm going to be doing - going vegetarian is something I've been wanting to try for a while now. I've always hesitated because I absolutely love red meat. Early this year, though, I cut red meat out of my budget (not diet) which surprisingly has been going quite well and I don't miss it at all! For health reasons I want to try a vegetarian diet for at least a week. If I can manage longer, I may just do that! 
  • Sober October: I'm not a heavy drinker to begin with but I just want to see if I can go this entire month without drinking (meaning my apple cider will have to be one without the whiskey).
What are some of the things on your October Bucket List?


  1. Oh I had no idea you could make apple cider in a slow cooker! I might have to look into that, so fun! :)

    Good luck with your goals - and finding a Halloween costume! We don't really do Halloween here so I have no ideas for you sorry!

    Hope you are having a great weekend :)
