  1. these sound like some good things to do in texas!!! not sure if i would ever visit the state but if i do, i’m totally coming back to this checklist 🙂

  2. My roommate is moving to Austin after we graduate, so I’ll have to share this with her! I’ve always wanted to be an astronaut, so NASA would be first on my bucket list!
