about me, fall

When September Ends

It is no secret that fall is my favorite time of year. I think I have only mentioned it about a thousand times. The temperatures cool down, all my favorite jewel tones can be found in stores, the TV shows start back, we have football every weekend, the leaves turn colors, the fall scents are everywhere. Do I even need to keep selling it??? Today I am linking up with Andrea for TBB Asks for some fall themed questions! (Yes, I know I am a day late. I always have this post finished but like to share it on Tuesdays since I talk about my weekends on Monday.)

Favorite Fall Sweet Treat? 

I have to say that apple pie is my absolute favorite fall treat. There are so many delicious things that come with the season, but there is nothing better than my mom’s homemade apple pie. It is my goal this fall for her to come over and teach me how to make it so that I can start a tradition for Zoe to have some every year.

When my sister and I were young, we had our very own apple trees in our backyard at our house in Pennsylvania. I remember going out there and picking lots of apples to bring in for my mom to make us pie. She always had leftover crust and would put it in a small pan and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over it and get it crispy and perfect and let us snack on that while we waited for the pies to cool.

Red, Yellow or Green Apples?

Granny Smith green apples are my absolute favorite, but I also enjoy Pink Lady, Gala and Honeycrisp.

Favorite Fall Sport to Play?

Me play sports? LOLOLOL

Best Drink for Fall?

Are we talking coffee? Alcohol? Let me share my favorites that I look forward to.

Salted Carmel Frapuccino, apple cider and pumpkin beers

Favorite Fall Activity?

Watching football. I want to start some traditions with Zoe like going to a pumpkin patch or fall festival.

Must have Fall Purchase?

Cozy cardigans and boots!

Pumpkins: Pick your own or store bought?

I don’t usually go pumpkin crazy, but now that we have Zoe, I would love to make it a tradition to go pick our own each year!

Real or Fake Pumpkin?


Favorite Halloween Costume?

I don’t really dress up for Halloween anymore. In recent years, I did get a little festive when Chris DJ’d at an annual Halloween party, but it isn’t my favorite holiday. I guess it depends on how much Zoe gets into it when she is older.

College Football or NFL?

College Football is a must for us!! I think you all know that we are Alabama fans in our house. Roll Tide!!! I also pull for Georgia. I occasionally watch NFL and my heart belongs to the Steelers and the Falcons. Even if I don’t many of their games, I do keep up with how they are doing.

Fall or Halloween Decor?

I don’t go crazy decorating the house for fall, I save most of the energy for Christmas. I do plan to get a little more festive for each season when Zoe is older. I prefer fall decor over Halloween stuff.

Raking Leaves or no Leaves to Rake?

Nope. We don’t have a lot of trees in our yard so we just leave them. I love looking at them. And honestly, we still have to cut the grass after they start to fall, so the lawn mower takes care of most of them. We do have lots of woods behind our fence, but luckily the leaves stay back there.

Favorite Soup?


Favorite Fall Candle scent?

Marshmallow Fireside and Flannel. We have Marshmallow Fireside candles in our house year round and I have Flannel in my car right now. I also love Leaves.

Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice?

I enjoy a few PSLs every year, but I don’t get crazy about all the other pumpkin spice treats that come out. I also love to get one pumpkin scone.

Short Booties or Tall boots?

I love both, depending on the outfit. Though, I don’t wear boots above my knee because my calves are too muscular and they never fit right.

Favorite Halloween Candy?

Pumpkin shaped Reese Cups and candy corn

PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): YES or NO?

Yes (but I love the salted caramel more)

Hayride or Corn Maze?


Favorite Fall TV Show?

I can’t just mention one. I live for fall TV! Our regular shows include Grey’s Anatomy, Law and Order SVU, Big Bang Theory, South Park, Chicago Fire/PD/Med/Law, Modern Family, This is Us, Scandal, Jane the Virgin, Lucifer and The Good Place. I think that is all of them that come back?? I think we might try The Good Doctor too. And I kind of wouldn’t mind watching Will and Grace since it is coming back.

What are your must watch fall shows?

    Salted caramel is my jam!

    I’m with you on the fall decor, other than a few candles I just anticipate getting all of the Christmas things out at the end of the month! Holiday reese’s cups are the best and salted caramel mochas are my favorite fall drink too!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine October 3, 2017 at 10:45 am

    Thank goodness Fall TV is back! Why is it that holiday Reese shapes taste sooo much better! Fall traditions will be a must with sweet Zoe, I have a feeling she will Love Fall as much as mama! Oh I now want a yummy slice of Apple Pie! So happy you did our Q&A, I always LOVE reading your answers!

    I’m so happy pumpkin beer is back!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders October 3, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    These are always so much fun to read! I love that you had both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverage choices because I think that people get too sucked into PSL to remember that there’s pumpkin beer and Oktoberfest out as well! And I’m so thankful that we don’t have to deal with a ton of leaves falling. We don’t have a lot of big trees at our house, but I think that’s also a perk of living in the South!

  • Reply Brittany Pines October 3, 2017 at 12:18 pm

    Yes, Salted Caramel!!! Had one yesterday 😉

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth October 3, 2017 at 12:43 pm

    Fall is seriously the best right??? Now if only the South could get on board with some cooler temps for us.

    I mean, Fall Tv is everything!!

  • Reply Danielle October 3, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    I love fall tv. So many good shows. I love the story about baking pies with your mom. I would totally love to eat the crust that way. Crust is the best.

  • Reply Akaleistar October 3, 2017 at 8:45 pm

    Cozy cardigans are a must!

  • Reply emelia October 3, 2017 at 9:06 pm

    FALL IS MY FAVORITE and I get so excited reading fall posts hahaha. I love seeing the leaves too, and also just leave them and YES YES YES to Reese’s pumpkins- Chuck and I love them!

  • Reply Sierra October 3, 2017 at 10:37 pm

    Cozy cardigans are a must! Not having to deal with leaves is a beautiful thing. We have a tree outside of our back door and the kids keep bringing them into the house. I’m sweeping the floors constantly. It’s no fun! Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Marie October 4, 2017 at 9:41 am

    I too love fall!! I don’t think I have had the salted caramel mocha at starbucks but it does sound good. I will have to check it out next time I’m at Starbucks. Reese’s Pumpkins are the best, they taste better than the orginal ones and I have no idea why. But they do. Happy Fall

  • Reply Kate October 4, 2017 at 10:46 am

    LOL are we talking coffee? Alcohol? How about both 😀

  • Reply Deena Simair October 4, 2017 at 12:30 pm

    I need to find more pumpkin beers! Thanks for linking up

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston October 4, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    I’ve been adding lots of cardigans to my wardrobe for fall! With all the weddings we’ve been having – I have only watched one college football game this year and that makes me so sad…hoping to change that this weekend! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply Audrey October 4, 2017 at 3:18 pm

    I love the apple pie tradition you had with your mom. That’s awesome 🙂 Honeycrisp are my absolute favorites!
    The Good Place and Superstore are my fall TV picks!

  • Reply Kaitlyn October 4, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    Marshmallow Fireside and Flannel candles sound interesting! I’m not much of a PSL fan, but I do enjoy a good Chai Tea Latte in the fall. As much as I enjoy them, if I’m going to ingest 50g of sugar, it’s going to be in the form of ice cream…lol. We’re finally starting to feel settled in our new-ish apartment and although I’d normally decorate, I’m just not feeling it. I feel like we just got done putting up the finishing touches for our everyday decor. I put up the halloween candy jar and a couple of knick knacks on the selves and called it a day lol.

    We are enemies in college football but I am with you on the green apples and cardigans and boots. I immediately went to alcohol for the favorite drink, does that mean I have a problem, lol?

  • Reply kristen October 5, 2017 at 1:10 pm
