FALL TO-DO

my sweet friend theresa did a great summer to-do list that i admired, and now that she has her fall to-do list out, i was inspired to the same! so here's what's on my fall to-do list- the list grew longer than i thought it would, oops! heres's to a fun fall and checking off this list!

COOK MORE MEALS AT HOME
i love cooking from scratch - need to actually try some of the many recipes i've be pinning lately!

CARVE  PUMPKINS
halloween is not really my favorite holiday. ever since being traumatized by the chuck e cheese mouse all things costumes (where you cant recognize the person) are not my favorite.
however, i do like to part-take in fall festivities (love me some fall!!) and decorating with pumpkins is always fun. why not carve one or two for the front porch!?

KEEP FRESH FLOWERS IN THE HOUSE
its so fun to freshen up a house with fresh blooms. its harder in the fall/winter when most all you can find is mums. but i'm thinking a weekly or bi-monthly flower spruce up around the house is a good idea.

TRY A NEW RESTAURANT
there are countless restaurants in dallas. somehow it always ends up being a massive struggle to pick a place to dine at. why we don't step out of our box and try something new more often is always a mystery. but with this list in place, i'm thinking a new restaurant once a month is a good goal!

TRY A NEW COFFEE SHOP
just like the restaurants in dallas.. there are coffee shops galore!
these are two in particular i want to give a try: ascension coffee and the hospitality sweet.

SNAIL MAIL
i just love getting read mail in the mail box! always have.
growing up in germany and sending letters to family back home is probably where it all started.
so when mallorie said she wanted to be my snail mail pal i was over the moon!
since real mail puts a smile on my face, i would love to share it with more friends - we can't let 'real mail' die. handwritten letters are a treasure!

GIRLS NIGHT OUT
my roommates from college and i try to get together once a week. it normally ends up being once every other week. when we get together we always share so  many laughs and memories. 
for the fall though, i'm going to plan a fun night out. we have a glass of bubbles, get a little dressed up and treat ourselves to a fun dinner!!!

WEEKLY WALKS
my friend kendall and i have been on a good schedule for the summer- here's to keeping up with our weekly 5mile walks even with the weather changing...

are you a list maker too?!
what's on your fall to-do list?

  1. Love all the items on your list! Weekly walks and girls night out sounds so fun! And we're the same way with restaurants, there are so many amazing places in the city, yet we end up at the same ones and in the same neighborhoods. We were saying this weekend we need to start picking new neighborhoods and go walk around and explore on weekends. I'm so glad you made a fall list too! Hopefully we can get these items checked off :)
