GOMO (Going Out More Often): My Fall Activities Bucket List

* This post is NOT sponsored. 

Happy Fall, Y'all! 

Eventbrite has inspired me to squash FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) and counteract it with GOMO (Going Out More Often). Eventbrite is the largest self-service ticketing platform in the world that helps people find and plan events. With Eventbrite's event planning and managing software, you can keep track of tickets, track sales and registrations. It's an easy, quick way to plan your event and keep it all in one place without stressing about it. Who wouldn't love that? I'd rather enjoy myself and make memories without all of the fuss. Often times, I will plan things out on pen and paper. While this can be a great thing, I am prone to loosing my lists and just completely forgetting about them. With this software, it's all in one place and there's no way that you can misplace it like you can paper! 

This fall, there's no need to stay at home and miss these wonderful memories that you could be making! Get off the couch, and get out there! I made a fall activities bucket list and I'm throwing a little twist on it. I decided to also create different looks that I made on polyvore.com just for this that you could wear to these activities that I'm sharing below. Enjoy!

#1. Go to the Fall Apple Festival. Around where I live, there is a Presbyterian church that holds their annual Fall Apple Festival and donates the money that they make from the festival to several charities that they have chosen for that year. I think it is a great thing that they do and I'd like to go this year since I have never been before. It's on October 15th, so that's not too awful long from now. It's a free event to go to and it would be perfect to bring along your kids, grandkids, or anyone for that matter! They sell homemade BBQ, apple butter, fried apple pies, funnel cakes, and much more. This year, they are even having live entertainment. If you are like me and live in the South, it's something you can look forward to for some country, family oriented fun. 

What I'd Wear:

#2. Have a weenie roast. My Grandpa had always loved having a weenie roast every year with the family. Sadly, he passed away in February of this year. I'd like to keep his wonderful tradition alive and have a weenie roast. It's such a wonderful time to spend with family conversing and eating together. It makes us all closer. I love roasting hot dogs over the fire, drinking hot chocolate, feeling the cool breeze against my cheeks, smelling the smoke from the fire, and just being with my loved ones. My Grandpa was a great, intelligent man and he knew how important family was. I am glad that he knew how much his family loved him before he lost his battle with cancer. Always cherish those moments that you spend with your family, because you never know if it could be the last time you see them. 

What I'd Wear: 
Weenie Roast:

#3. Go pumpkin picking at the pumpkin patch. When I was a little kid, my school took us all to the pumpkin patch to pick out our very own pumpkin to keep. It was like a treasure trove looking at the various sizes and shapes of pumpkins. There were hundreds to choose from and I remember how beautiful they all looked in a row just waiting to be picked. It's a cute tradition to start with your family. You can take the pumpkin home and carve it, or make a nice pie out of it! Either way, it's an opportunity to have fun and spend time together as a family. 

What I'd Wear: 
Pumpkin Pickin':

#4. Have a picnic. I love nothing more than having a picnic on a crisp, cool, fall day. There's just something so magical about it! All of the colors in the Earth that God has blessed us with are more vibrant and alive. I love this time of year. You also don't have to worry about bees stinging you with murderous rage...Haha ;) Having a picnic gives you a chance to get outside and enjoying the scenery while munching on a tasty treat. It's a time for peace and relaxation while drinking some apple cider out of a thermos. 

What I'd Wear: 
Fall Picnic:
#5. Go on a nature walk. It's nice to be outside in the fall since it isn't too hot. You can actually enjoy the scenery while walking. They say that it's the very best exercise that you can do for your body, so why not enjoy it at the same time? Bring a camera with you and stop to take pictures to document your lovely experience. You might just be surprised what you end up catching on your camera while walking through nature. If you have kids, you can challenge them to find the biggest leaf that they can. It might make them more excited to be walking around if they are given a fun task to complete. However you choose to go about walking outside, make sure you enjoy yourself and just have fun!

What I'd Wear:

Take A Walk:

Hopefully you now have some activity ideas and fashion ideas to go along with it! As always, thank you so much for reading my blog. I appreciate it more than you know!


  1. Each fall I look forward to everything you've mentioned with the exception of a weenie roast. I didn't even know what that was, but it sounds fun! Like having a campfire cookout at home. It's awesome that you want to keep your grandfather's tradition alive. I wasn't expecting to see an outfit for each outing, so that was an added bonus. The picnic outfit is my fave. It's the plaid dress that makes it! I'm all about celebrating each season, and they tend to get away from me, so it's important to plan ahead to make the most of it!
