Fall Bucket List >>> Chalkboard Style

It feels like a fall day around here. I will have a perma-smile all day long! Last weekend the boys and I sat down and made our fall bucket list and decided our home needed a chalkboard wall to write it on. So I painted and waited and chalked and today it was ready to write on. So here’s our new addition to our kitchen. It’s imperfect, quirky, and full of fun. It fits right in!



Dave really likes the black against the white so I have convinced him that I want a black and white hallway. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! My little plan is coming along swimmingly. I knew if he saw it, he would be on board.


These kids are awesome at telling all the things they want to do. The “buy slippers” one cracks me up. I will totally buy slippers. Bryce is very practical and also suggested getting more wool socks because it gets cold at night. He is the one I will not have to worry about when he starts driving. He will drive like a senior citizen on Sunday and that will be fine by me. Sam on the other…hand, well not so much!



Pretty awesome list, if I do say so myself! Aren’t chalkboard walls homey? I totally love them.


I may have to pull out some fall clothes today. I like that idea!

      Seriously, he is an eighty-year-old stuck in a nine-year-old’s body…well, he’s like super tall for his age so a nine-year-old trapped in a twelve-year-old’s body who acts like he’s eighty. LOL, not going lie, I kinda love that about him. I was against having a chalkboard wall for the longest time because of the mess…but the kids won. Happy Weekend!!! xo Kristin

    Love the chalk board! I bet the kids LOVE it πŸ™‚ I’ve been back and forth on doing a chalk board in my kitchen. I’m still pretty on the fence about it. But you’re making me lean towards it! Aw, peer pressure πŸ™‚

      Thanks Kenz πŸ™‚ I was too. I finally decided to do it since the kids were so excited about it. The messiest part is having to chalk the surface before you use it, but it was pretty easy to clean up. xo Kristin

      I have never done the crayon leaves before, but I thought it would be worth a shot. I love doing that stuff with my kiddos. xo Kristin

    Well that turned out nice, didn’t it? Chalkboard walls dominate. We have one designated in the mudroom of our new house.

    Just catching up on your blog. You’ve done a killer job with your house… I hope you’re a proud of it as you should be πŸ™‚

      I am really wondering why it took me so long to be on board (LOL) with this trend! Thanks so much…it is a work in progress. We will be done in 10 years…xo Kristin

    Looks great. They seem so helpful with reminders and messages. We need one of these as well, especially since we have a little one that may use it more than us.

      It really is my favorite time to get outdoors and do stuff. So many good things, I think I hear the apple orchard calling my name this weekend!! xo Kristin

      That is sooo true. It was a strange summer. I can’t help it, I’m sold out to fall. It has my heart and always will πŸ™‚ xo Kristin
