In case you missed the memo, it’s finally October. Except it’s 80 degrees and humid here in Brooklyn so that Fall feeling isn’t really happening. However, I came across this festive Fall survey over on Nadine’s blog (who found it here)and even though I’m tardy to the link up party, I’m going to do it anyway because I can’t resist.
Favorite Fall Sweet Treat?
hmm.. apple cider donuts. good ones though because sometimes they could be dry. i like the ones with the cinnamon sugar on them, sometimes they’ll throw some apple bits in too. my mouth is watering.
Red, Yellow or Green Apples?
RED. like my home girl Snow White, i can’t resist a perfect red apple. just hold the poison, thanks.
Favorite Fall Sport to Play?
Best Drink for Fall?
Favorite Fall Activity?
i would love to say apple/pumpkin picking but i haven’t been in years. i would also say watching football, but again, that hasn’t happened for me in forever. so, who knows.
Must have Fall purchase?
cardigans, boots, leggings, skinny jeans, BLANKET SCARVES.
Pumpkins: Pick your own or store bought?
pick my own. i just feel like there are some things you shouldn’t just throw on a grocery shopping list.
Real or Fake Pumpkin?
Favorite Halloween Costume?
i just had this conversation with my mom. as a kid, i went as “my mom” where i put curlers in my hair, a nightshirt and pajama pants, a robe and carried a coffee mug. that was a big hit, except my mother has never walked around in curlers and a robe a day in her life so, semantics? i was also a phone. there should be pictures somewhere on here from last year’s halloween post. if not, picture a Zach Morris cellphone with my face where your ear would go. also, it rang. surprisingly, i was never bullied.
more recently, i was a martini, which was one of my favorites. this year i was thinking of going as 90’s mom on vacation, complete with a fanny pack and scrunchie but some other parts of the costume i was building in my head don’t easily come in my size (a neon windbreaker, acid wash jeans) so i bought a headband with a crown on it from the dollar section at target and voila, i’m a princess.
College Football or NFL?
NFL. go Giants!
Fall or Halloween Decor?
Fall, unless it’s cute halloween and not scary halloween.
Raking Leaves or no Leaves to Rake?
we have leaves but we don’t rake them. we sweep them up along with the acorns the squirrels throw at us. i’ll pretend like i do this on
a regular any kind of basis, but i’d be lying.
all of them. loaded potato, autumn squash from panera, clam chowder, lobster bisque, french onion, minestrone. yum
Favorite Fall Candle scent?
specifically, i like Leaves from bath and body works and home sweet home from yankee candle. in general, i like spicy scents for Fall.
Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice?
i’ve grown away from it. i like a nice pumpkin spice frappuccino once in a blue moon, but i’m more of an apple kind of girl.
Short Booties or Tall boots?
both. i’m actually on the hunt for short, black booties, so if anyone knows where i can find some in a very wide width, let me know!
Favorite Halloween Candy?
reeses and almond joy. i love the fun size bars of basically any kind of chocolate.
PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): YES or NO?
very, very very occasionally.
Hayride or Corn Maze?
have you ever seen the episode of impractical jokers where Sal’s punishment is a “haunted” corn maze and they strap a camera to his chest so they can capture his every expression and he freaks out over everything (as usual)? that’s me. so i’m going to go with a non-haunted hayride.
Favorite Fall TV Show?
oh man, you know how I feel about TV. This Is Us, The Little Couple, Jane the Virgin, The Good Place, Bob’s Burgers, The Mindy Project, Grey’s Anatomy, How To Get Away With Murder, Chrisley Knows Best.
There’s just so many.
