After starting my first full-time job in February, I’m afraid I’ve been neglecting my blog. In an effort to revive my writing space, I decided to kick off September with a Fall Bucket List.
1.) Do a horror tour of Iowa.
We have wanted to go visit the Villisca Axe Murder House for ages, and this October we are finally going to do it! We are planning to follow up the Villisca tour with a visit to a haunted theme park in Des Moines.
2.) Visit Wilson’s Orchard.
We’ve never been to Wilson’s Orchard, but I’ve heard so many good reviews that I want to make sure we get the chance to visit it before we move.
3.) Bake cinnamon rolls.
I’ve been avoiding baking my cinnamon rolls since I’ve been losing weight because they are too delicious to resist. Since I’ve been pretty successful (only about ten lbs away from my high school weight!) I think it’s time to taste those cinnamon rolls again.
4.) Set new fitness goals.
After running the Bix 7 in July, I’ve been at a stand still with my fitness. I want to keep up with my running, but I also want to pursue lifting more. I’ve been struggling to find a gym that fits my needs and is still affordable, but now is the time to get it all sorted out!
5.) Attempt NaNoWriMo.
NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Thousands of participants spend the entire month of November attempting to write a novel of at least 50,000 words. I have always wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo and I’m hoping that this will give me the motivation that I need to start writing more often again.
