Fall To-Do List

September 02, 2014

It's hard to believe it's September and now that the last hoorah of summer (aka Labor Day) is officially over. And now that Labor Day is officially over, it's officially time to start thinking about the impending fall season. I woke up this morning after extensive Labor Day lake time this past weekend and was met with tons of rain and lightening...and coldness. Yikes. I didn't think the transition from summer to fall would happen so quickly, but hey, let's embrace it.

Last year I started doing little seasonal "to-do lists" of things I want to do/document during each season. Fall is a favorite, because there's just so many festive things to do! It may be a bit early to think about purchasing a new sweater and carving pumpkins, but on the other end the PSL (pumpkin spice latte) is already available at Starbucks. If that doesn't scream 'fall,' I'm not sure what does.

Fall To-Do List

  • Drink a PSL (I celebrated finishing a test with a PSL!)
  • Buy at least two decorative 'fall' items for the apartment
  • Have a horror movie marathon (watched 2-3 scary movies)
  • Carve/decorate pumpkins with friends (painted a pumpkin with my Mom and Jack!)
  • Buy a fall scented candle
  • Document Fayetteville's beautiful leaves whenever they begin to turn
  • Buy new fall apparel (tall socks/cardigans/sweaters/scarves/etc)
  • Make a fall inspired cocktail (made apple pie moonshine for #halloweekend)
  • Go to a haunted house
  • Try pumpkin flavored beer
  • Go to a pumpkin patch date (with Jack) (did this over fall break!)
  • Bake something with pumpkin in it
  • Go apple picking and make something yummy from picked apples
  • Have a bonfire

What's on your fall to do list? Let me know!

  1. Great list, I especially love the PSL and the pumpkin date with your man. I'm so going to drag Ian to do the same with me

  2. Ah, Fall lists always make me so happy! I love Fall, I wish I lived somewhere where we actually got Fall-like weather! Andrew and I go apple picking every year and it's my absolute favorite Fall activity!

  3. This just got me so excited for Fall. Also, why do I feel like you would make the greatest best friend ever? pumpkin spice latte's, haunted houses AND bonfires? Girl I like the way you think!
