As I was reading about the world of blogging, it was suggested several times that I introduce myself to my readers. Considering most of you are friends and family, it’s a pretty safe bet that we’ve already met and you know quite a bit about me. I did, however, come across this cute idea for sharing my favorite things about fall. So, because I love a good alliterative title for a blog post, I decided to give it a try. Note: I did not create these categories on my own; I’m simply following a template that’s floating around in blog land.
Favorite Fall Candle Scent: “Leaves” from Bath and Body Works. I am a loyal BBW candle shopper (2 for $22!!), and our house smells like Leaves for three months straight in the fall. In fact, I recently threw a Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin into the rotation. What was I thinking?! It smells good, but I miss Leaves already. Good thing I have one ready and waiting!
Best Fall Fragrance: I don’t change my perfume scent based on seasons, but I do change my lotion. I love Wild Madagascar Vanilla from BBW. I’ve tried apple and pumpkin scented lotions, but they aren’t for me.
Fall Beverage of Choice: Um . . . water, I guess! I’m not a coffee or tea drinker so I can’t jump on the Pumpkin Spice Latte bandwagon. I suppose I do enjoy the occasional apple cider.
Favorite Thanksgiving Food: Anything but the turkey! . . .it just gets in the way on my plate. I love homemade stuffing and green bean casserole. Last year there was some sort of miscommunication and we didn’t have GBC at Thanksgiving! It caused quite the ruckus . . . remember, mom? 🙂
Favorite Type of Pie: None! I can pass on pie any day. Why can’t we have Thanksgiving cake? If I had to choose, I guess I could stomach an apple pie . . . or maybe a few bites of pumpkin. My Grandma Matzo used to make a peanut butter pie. It involved lots of peanut butter, cream cheese, and Sanders hot fudge . . .now that’s my kind of pie!
Favorite Fall Sweater: Haven’t worn too many yet, but I did just pick up this one at Target. I love how long it is. Matty, if you are reading this, please ignore the DSW bag on the bed!
Football Games or Leaf Piles?: Shopping
Favorite Fall TV Show: Not watching too many shows these days, Lucy sees to that! Matty and I do enjoy Blackish, though. And we’ve started watching the first season of Fargo, which I’m really enjoying but wish I could stay awake for more than one episode at a time. I record Scandal and watch it in 10 minute increments throughout the day during feedings.
Combat boots or Uggs: Uggs . . . I know it makes me look like I’m trying to be 19 again, but they are just so WARM!
Is Pumpkin Spice worth the hype?: Yep . . . when it allows me to have a cute decoration in my house! Thanks, Hobby Lobby!
Halloween, Yay or Nay?: Yay! I’m extremely pro-holiday. Let kiddos (and kiddos-at-heart) have some fun and be silly.
Which is better, fall mornings or evenings?: Mornings! I love a good cool, crisp, and sunny morning in the fall.
