tbb aks - fall theme

Hey there, Lovelies!! I'm technically still out of the office but couldn't pass up participating in the monthly TBB Asks. This has become one of my favorite link ups! Bonus - it's all about Fall, my favorite season of the year.

By the way, Little Baby and I are doing well and I'm hoping to return to the blogosphere soon. Right now, however, sleep or something requiring zero brain cells wins out all hours of the day. I mean, this post itself has taken several hours since I've only been able to work on it a little at a time. 

1. Favorite Fall Sweet Treat - I could eat buckets of candy corn. Oh, and I make the best fudge. 

2. Red, Yellow or Green Apples - My favorite is green but yellow comes in at a close second. Not a fan of red apples at all. 

3. Favorite Fall Sport to Play - I'd have to go with volleyball since I played it for years. 

4. Best Drink for Fall - When Fall arrives, I am no longer embarrassed to order hot chocolate. I mean, I drink it all year round but feel kinda awkward ordering it when it's 90 degrees outside. 

5. Favorite Fall Activity - Bonfires! I love having family over, the sweatshirt weather, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a warm fire. And smore's! 

6. Must Have Fall Purchase - Mums and pumpkins, does that count? I do love new cardigans and dressy sweatshirts. 

7. Pumpkins: Pick Your Own or Store Bought - We pick up our pumpkins from a local greenhouse every year. The boys always pick out their own. 

8. Real or Fake Pumpkin - Real. The boys love to carve a pumpkin and when it's time, toss them off the bridge - a perk to living on a farm. Bonus, I'm pretty sure there's a pumpkin plant over by our bridge from previous years tosses. Ha!

9. Favorite Halloween Costume - Negative. I am anti-Halloween. You can read my thoughts on it here. We let the boys dress as something fun and not scary and beg for candy from relatives, but that's it. I know, I'm a fuddy dud. 

10. College Football or NFL - College. Even before all this NFL nonsense. But, I really don't follow either very faithfully. 

11. Fall or Halloween Decor - Fall. And if your Halloween decorations are so scary that they give the neighborhood kids nightmares, you should probably put them where children will not see them. 

12. Raking Leaves or No Leaves to Rake - Plenty of leaves to rake, but we never do. Instead, we chop them up with the lawnmower. 

13. Favorite Soup -Vegetable. I seriously make the best vegetable soup. I'll try to share the recipe soon. We've already had a couple of pots in the last month, and I'm thinking we need another very soon.

14. Favorite Fall Candle Scent - Apple. 

15. Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice - Not a fan, but I swear I am a Fall person all the way. 

16. Short Booties or Tall Boots - Tall boots. I look funny in those short booties. Plus, I'm always a few years behind when it comes to fashion trends. 

17. Favorite Halloween Candy - Candy corn or Reese's pumpkins. They are so much more fresh than regular Reese's cups. 

18. PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): Yes or No - No. It might not be fair though since I do not drink any form of coffee at all. 

19. Hayride or Corn Maze - Hayride. Corn mazes scare me. The fear of being lost is just too much. 

20. Favorite Fall TV Show - Scorpion and NCIS just started back up. Those are my two favorites. This season's NCIS premier was one of the best episodes yet. 

How would you answer these? Bloggers - I hope you're joining in on the fun and crafting a post of your own. Non-bloggers, feel free to share your responses in the comments. It's so fun getting to know one another better. Happy October!

  2. Yay, so happy you came to link-Up with us! Corn mazes scare me too! So happy mama and baby are doing great!

  3. I love that you drink hot chocolate all year long. I do too when I'm craving something sweet.

  5. Yay, so happy to hear from you!!! Fun answers and squeeze that little sweetie for me!!

  6. This is making me want all things fall, and some pumpkin reese's candy! I'm glad you and your baby are well. Enjoy this sweet time.

  7. Oh I love me some Reese's pumpkins! They totally taste better than the regular ones. The holiday theme ones always taste better. While I do love fall, I'm not a huge fan of Halloween. I don't like being scared.

  8. Yum to all the green apples! I typically decorate for fall too so that it'll carry through Thanksgiving <3
