  4. Hi there! I just wanted to let you know (so the link could be corrected) that the Fall Bucket List is actually a creation of mine and the printable can be found here: http://katieballa.blogspot.com/2012/08/fall-bucket-list-2012.html (I even updated it with the correct year for this year, too!). Last years post can be found here: http://katieballa.blogspot.com/2011/09/fall-bucket-list-and-printable-because.html


    Thanks for fixing this!

  5. hi Jen! love your blog and I was so excited when I saw the bucket list. Unfortunately it’s mis-cited though and I know that because my sister created this last year and it’s been improperly pinned ever since. She made a new one that says 2012 and you can read her post about it here: http://katieballa.blogspot.com/2012/08/fall-bucket-list-2012.html?m=1


  6. Fun! We just finished our “Fall Checklist” for this year, but we might need to do a few things from your list too. :-) http://eastcoastmommyblog.blogspot.ca/2012/08/fall-checklist-with-free-printable.html

  7. We have the BEST fall activity: BALLOON FIESTA! New Mexico Balloon Fiesta is amazing. Last year was our first time going and it was a blast. We’ll probably just park somewhere near by and watch the ascention because it gets crazy down there. I think everyone needs to see the fiesta at least once in their lives. We went the day they broke the world record and it was just too cool. It makes up for waking up at 4am to wait in traffic for an hour, park and walk to the fiesta. :)

  8. I’m sure you get a million comments, but I just wanted to thank you for such a nice blog and your updates. There have been a lot of changes recently in several of the blogs I normally follow, and it’s been a breath of fresh air to see the consistent quality and enthusiasm from yours. I look forward to every update, and almost always end up either pinning or bookmarking at least one thing you’ve shared. So thank you.
