Without a doubt, autumn is my favorite season. The colors, the scents, the cozy outfits, the delicious flavors. It’s a time of year that we express thankfulness… and eat large plates of oh-so-delicious comfort foods. 😉 (Plus pumpkin makes a comeback, and I’m allowed to indulge in pumpkin-flavored everything without coming across as weirdly obsessive).
So I was excited when Playing House nominated me to do the Sweater Weather Faves! This kind of ‘questionnaire’ is right up my alley!! 🙂
Favorite Candle Scent: Home Sweet Home by Yankee Candle. It smells of warm spices with a hint of sweetness, and it makes the house feel cozy on chilly afternoons.
Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate: Coffee, coffee, coffee! I looooove pumpkin spice latte’s, and I’m positively giddy when I find out that they’re back. (But on the days that I’m not feeling like caffeine, I’m also a huge fan of apple cinnamon tea… and hot chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream).
What is the best fall memory you have? Marrying my best friend! AND giving birth to my precious baby boy! 🙂
Best Fragrance for Fall: Honestly, I wear Daisy by Marc Jacobs all year long, because – well – it’s just what I do.
Favorite Thanksgiving Food: My favorite Thanksgiving food is definitely the stuffing! I usually skip the potatoes just so that I have extra room in my stomach for a second helping of stuffing. Ha, ha! And pumpkin pie is a close second. Soooooo delicious!
What is autumn weather like where you live? We have a saying here in New England… If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change. 😉 We’ve had beautiful, sunny weather in the 60’s this year! (I remember last year though, we had an insane snowstorm the day before Thanksgiving. And a few years ago, we had a snowstorm on Halloween. Sooooo, you never know around here)!
Most Worn Sweater: Last fall I was super pregnant, so I honestly can’t remember what fall clothes I have. Ha, ha!!
Football games or jumping in leaf piles? FOOTBALL!!! 🙂 The hubby and I are both huge fans! (Plus the food is amazing too, so it’s a win-win).
Favorite Type of Pie: I can’t pick… Right now, I could go for a slice of chocolate cream… or coconut… or lemon meringue… or pumpkin… or apple…or cherry… Anything. I don’t discriminate against pie.
Which makeup trend do you prefer, dark lips or winged liner? Yeahhhhh, so I’ve never tried either. I have a simple makeup routine that takes less than five minutes, to be honest; and I’ve never tried winged liner OR dark lips. Recently I’ve been meaning to try a darker shade on my lips, but I’m scared to. 🙂
What song really gets you into the fall spirit? I don’t think I have one…
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype? Yesssssssssss! Every time I see something that’s pumpkin spice flavored, I need to buy it…and then eat it. It’s an obsession, really. I also have a growing list of pumpkin recipes that I need to try.
Favorite Fall TV Show: I love shows that will make me laugh; so I usually watch The Middle, Last Man Standing, The Grinder, and Modern Family. Plus they’re only 30 minutes, so I can squeeze them in after a long day.
Skinny jeans or leggings? I wear skinny jeans more frequently, but I love leggings just as much!
Combat boots or Uggs? I’ve never owned a pair of combat boots or Uggs… But I do love boots SO much! I have a tall pair of leather boots that are my favorites, because they’re so comfortable.
Halloween – Yay or Nay? Nay. I’ve never been a fan, because I don’t like creepy, gory things. (You all know how much I hate zombies)! I skip that and jump over to my favorite holiday ever: Thanksgiving. 🙂 That being said, it’s going to be hard for me to resist dressing up Brady in a costume. He would be such a cute pumpkin! Sooooo, he may be a pumpkin this year.
Fall mornings or evenings? These days, I’m loving the evenings! I bundle Brady up, and I push him around the neighborhood on his little red car. It’s a special way for me to unwind after a busy day… and he loves it too.
What do you think about Black Friday? I get excited about Black Friday every year, but I only shop for bargain deals on clothes. I stay clear of the crazy electronics lines. I usually try to hit the mall around 6am, grab some stuff at half off or more, and then I’m back home by 11am.
One Fall 2015 Trend You Love: Just one?!? 🙂 How about this moose hat? No? Well, then, definitely ankle boots, plaid, and skinny jeans to name a few.
I nominate anyone who wants to do this!! (Just let me know you’re doing it, so that I can check out your answers). 🙂 Trust me, it’s soooo FUN!
