All Things Fall with the Blended Blog

Before we get into the post, I woke up this morning to hear about the tragedy that happened last night in Las Vegas. It is such a senseless tragedy. Lots of thoughts and prayers are going out to the people involved especially the victims, families, first responders, hospital workers, and law enforcement.

Hey y'all, 

I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was a bit busy with babysitting, church events, and preparing for vacation Friday. Since it finally started to feel like Fall I thought I would join in on the Blended Blog's link-up on all things Fall and tomorrow I am sharing my Fall bucket list.

Let's get started with the twenty questions:

Favorite Fall Sweet Treat? 

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. My favorite recipe is from Real Food Whole Life. Apple cider doughnuts are my second favorite.

Red, Yellow or Green Apples?

Fuji Apples are my favorite and they are a mix of green and red.

 Favorite Fall Sport to Play?

I never played fall sports. I danced until I was in 5th grade. I was on swim team through middle school. In high school I was on the Marching Band so I guess I would say that.

Best Drink for Fall?

Apple cider or Yogi's Caramel Apple Spice Tea.

Favorite Fall Activity?

I love going to football games in the fall. Also, hikes and walks in order to see the changing leaves.

Must have Fall purchase?

Riding Boots. I wear mine all the time. I have the older version of this pair

Pumpkins: Pick your own or store bought?

I have done both depending on the year and my schedule. I love going to the farm to pick out the pumpkin. There is a farm less than 10 minutes from me and I hope to go one day and pick out my pumpkin next week.

Real or Fake Pumpkins?

Decor, fake so you can keep them up longer but I have always loved carving real pumpkins.

Favorite Halloween Costume?

My most creative one was being a potato sack racer with my bestie, A, when we were in high school. Other than that I have been a clown, ballerinea, gypsy, hippy, Holly Golightly, Thing 2, and a cat.

College Football or NFL?

College Football. GO HEELS!

Fall or Halloween Decor?

Both. I grew up where Fall decor came out in September and lasts until after Thanksgiving but we also went all out for Halloween decor with fake ghosts hanging in the tree on the front year and a spiderweb on the porch.

Raking Leaves or no leaves to rake?

As a kid I loved jumping in the piles of leaves when we raked them up and even had the pumpkin leave collection bags like these. I currently live in an apartment though so no leaves to rake.

Favorite soup?

I am a big fan of the classic tomato soup with grilled cheese. I also love this taco soup from Skinnytase in the Fall.

Favorite Fall Candle scent?

Cranberry Woods from Bath &Body Works

Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice?

Hate. I don't drink coffee and would rather have apple flavored things than pumpkin.

Short Booties or Tall boots?

Tall boots. I live in my riding boots (similar) all of the Fall.

Favorite Halloween Candy?

Baby Ruth bars.


No. I do not drink coffee.

Hayride or Corn Maze?

Corn Maze. Especially Haunted Corn Mazes.

Favorite Fall TV Show? 

Currently I am excited Scandal, Blindspot, and Poldark are returning. I am excited to watch the Good Doctor and the new Law & Order: True Crime.

What's your favorite fall drink?



  1. I'm the same way about decor - I love the idea of real pumpkins, but the fake stuff lasts longer LOL and you can reuse it! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  2. It's so sad about Vegas, absolutely heartbreaking. I'm all about the fake pumpkins, haha.

  3. So many of our answers are quite similar! :) I'm particularly interested in trying the Cranberry Woods you mentioned - I've never smelled that one!

  4. A haunted corn maze sounds fun!

  5. I have heard so much about the taco soup from Skinnytaste. I definitely need to give it a try! We carve pumpkins every year but like you, I prefer fake decor.

  6. Happy fall! I'm with you on thinking apple cider is the best drink. I'm drinking some right now!

  7. We have a lot in common! I've always wanted to try an Apple Cider donut - sounds so yummy!

  8. What a fun post. My favorite drink is apple cider, especially when it's been on the stove with cinnamon sticks. Also, we always had fall decor out through Thanksgiving. I don't decorate for Halloween mainly because we don't have kids

  9. My favorite fall activity is the fair and fair food.

  10. I'm so excited for Scandal to start back on Thursday!!!!!!
    I kinda am like you - I like apple more than pumpkin - but poor apples get no credit anymore with all the pumpkin craze

  11. Hmm fave fall drink..so hard to choose. I enjoy apple cider,I just tried a maple pecan coffee yesterday and creative holiday cocktails!

  12. YES! Just tomato soup and grilled cheese...such a staple!

  13. Tomato soup and grilled cheese is one of my all time favorite meals!


  14. I'm with you on preferring apple things over pumpkin things! But you don't drink coffee??

  15. I love fake pumpkins also, but we do purchase a real one for carving!
