20 FALL Questions

Happy Thursday!

If you asked me my favorite day of the week, I’d respond with “Thursday”.  This season we have no practices, no dance, no games, NOTHING on Thursdays.  And I kind of love it.  With Tab out for football, it has become our new option for date night, which is really nice.  I don’t know why but date night feels weird on a Monday night?  Thursday feels so much better.

I had written down in my calendar to do a Twenty Questions-type of post today and THEN I spotted this fall theme version of Twenty Questions on another blogger’s Instagram.  I ditched my plans to chat all things FALL!  It’s like Twenty Questions-FALL Edition.

Thank you to The Blended Blog for this fun fall post idea.

Favorite Fall Sweet Treat?
I’d say something like apple crisp or apple cobbler.  {Like this Apple Spice Cobbler-YUM!}  If you add ice cream, we’ll be BFF for life.  πŸ˜‰

I should also add, if you haven’t tried these Cookie Butter Oreos, you are missing out!  I cannot say “NO” to these cookies.  You should try them ASAP!

Red, Yellow, or Green Apples?

Favorite Fall Sport to Play?
The last time I played a sport in the fall would have to be last Thanksgiving when we had a little friendly two hand touch football game.  Can you tell by the picture above how amazing my football skills are?  I was doing everything I could to distract the other team.

In high school, I was all about volleyball in the fall.  Can you spot me?

I’m a little easier to spot in this one.  πŸ˜‰

Now my favorite fall sport to watch is this guy playing flag football!  Hands-down!

Best Drink for Fall?
I’m a pretty boring girl because my favorite drink is the same all year long…my drink of choice is a Skinny Vanilla Latte.

 Favorite Fall Activity?
I have a soft spot in my heart for a pumpkin patch.  Most of our trips to the pumpkin patch here in Texas are HOT, but I don’t even mind!  Seeing all those pumpkins, enjoying a hayride, and spotting all the kiddos dressed in their fall best make my heart happy.

Must Have Fall Purchase?
I have so many thoughts swirling around in my head, but the number one thing I think you need for fall is a pair of great jeans you feel good in.  Find a pair on sale, splurge on a pair, try on a ton until you find the perfect pair you feel comfortable in.  That’d be my MUST HAVE purchase for fall.  I wear jeans ALL THE TIME and you should feel good in something you’re wearing daily.

Pumpkin-Pick Your Own or Store Bought?
Most of the time we buy ours from the store.  It makes our visits to the pumpkin patch way less stressful.  (The picture above is from last year.  I like buying those fresh wreaths from Home Goods.  They’re really inexpensive and look great, but this year I couldn’t find two that matched.  I had to change it up…long story short I can’t get the wreaths to stay up with the wire I bought.  So my wreaths aren’t up yet this year.)  But I do have mums and pumpkins-from the grocery store.  πŸ™‚

Real or Fake Pumpkin?
Do I have to choose one?  We like both around here.  I tend to put the real pumpkins outside and decorate inside with the fake ones.

Favorite Halloween Costume?
The cutie pie clown and dalmatian puppy are my favorite costumes to date.

College Football or NFL?
We watch a lot of both around here, but we enjoy watching this guy’s games the most.

Fall or Halloween Decor?
Mostly just fall.  I tend to decorate for Christmas a little early and if I do both Halloween and then fall my Christmas decorations aren’t up very long.

Raking Leaves or No Leaves to Rake?
We don’t have many leaves but the few we have we rake up.

Favorite Soup?
I like things a bit spicy and this Enchilada Soup packs a little punch.  It’s my very favorite fall go-to soup.

Favorite Fall Candle Scent?
It’s hard to go wrong with Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin from Bath and Body Works.

Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice?
LOVE it in muffins or something baked, but it’s not my favorite thing to drink.

Short Booties or Tall Boots?
Definitely a short bootie. 

Favorite Halloween Candy?
Need I say more?

Pumpkin Spice Latte-Yes or No?

Hayride or Corn Maze?
I’d choose a hayride ANYDAY over a corn maze.

Favorite Fall TV Show?
This definitely isn’t a new one but the fall has me thinking of Gilmore Girls.  There’s really no better show to watch in the fall (in my opinion).

What about you??  What are your fall favorites?  Hayride/Corn Maze?  Favorite fall treat?  I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts today!  Happy THURSDAY, Friends!  Let’s make it a great one!  XO

    Skinny vanilla latte – there's really nothing better! However, I recently tried an iced carmel mach with almond milk. It's not too sweet and the perfect blend. Nothing else has made me stray away from the tried and true skinny vanilla latte.

    I'm not a pumpkin person at all. I don't mind the smell, but keep it away from my mouth.

    And YESSSSS to Gilmore Girls in the fall. I'm thinking of starting it again, just because it seems so perfect for this season.

    I wear a lot of leggings paired with skirts and skorts all year long though, I don't wear jeans a whole lot. I like pumpkin spice baked in muffins or pumpkin pie but I have made my own pumpkin spice coffee before though.
