My Fall To-Do List

For many, fall is their favorite season. Unlike others, I’ve always been enamored with summer, but this year, things are a little bit different! Though fall is slowly approaching in Austin, I’m trying to embrace every minute of it. So this year, I’ve created a to-do list for the season – a bucket list of sorts. Here’s what I plan on doing:

1. Host an apple cider party in my dorm room.

2. Go paddleboarding on Lady Bird Lake very early in the morning on a school day.

3. Eat a cinnamon roll pancake at the original Kerbey Lane Cafe.

4. Attend a tailgate and stay the entire football game.

5.  Have an old movie marathon with friends.

6. Hike and hammock in St. Edwards Park.

7. Make and gift some homemade bread and pumpkin butter with my little sister.

8. Arrange some fall florals for my windowsill.

9. Cook up this amazing butternut squash chicken pan-roast for my family.

10. Cozy up and read a novel that’s not a textbook. (I’m currently flipping through this one.)

What a week it’s been, y’all. I submitted three homeworks today, and after my last full day of classes, I think I deserve just a little bit of a break. Tonight I’m super excited to be attending a pre-ACL party at The Domain Austin with one of my close girlfriends, so be sure you’re following along my Instagram story @sarah_thebella for a peek! I would love to know – what’s on your fall to-do list?
