this is one of the only trees in our yard that knows it is now officially FaLL! :) trace actually noticed how pretty the leaves were the other day! :) can't wait til the rest start turning to beautiful oranges, reds, and yellows!
1. do you like starbucks? and are you a fan of their seasonal coffees?
no, and no. i do not like starbucks (or any type of coffee for that matter.) the only time i ever buy anything from there is when i'm surprising nate with a caramel frappachino- his fav! all together now- awwwwww. :)
2. how do you decorate and prepare for fall?
we have a few fall decorations... mainly just cute plaques that say something about giving thanks. and we have a few halloween type things too. i think i'm gonna buy a few pumpkins and put them outside this year. but ya'll, we live IN THE WOODS. so it's so hard to get motivated to decorate outside when my family is the only one who will enjoy them. but i bet the kids will love them, so i'm gonna suck it up and decorate, for their sake. oh, and CANDY CORN is a must you guys!
3. will you participate in your college's homecoming activites?
bahahaha! i went to harvard on the hill (jeff state community college for all you people not from around here!) i doubt they have a homecoming...
4. what is your fav fall clothing item or accessory?
hmmmmm. i've lost a lot of weight since this time last year (2 pants sizes!) so i'm in need of some new clothes. but i'm loving my skinny jeans with my new cute flats. of course it's been 9000* so i haven't had a chance to wear them much! and of course my new boots so i can't wait to wear them more!
5. what was your fav halloween costume as a kid?
wow. i have NO idea. i'd need to look back at pics... b/c i really don't remember! i know i was a cat a few years, and one year i was a ballerina. and a clown. wow, i'm never gonna let/make my kids be clowns! :)
6. do you like halloween/horror movies? do you have a fav?
i have never liked scary movies. i am the biggest chicken ever. but for some reason, when i was in like FIFTH grade my friends and i LOVED the hand that rocks the cradle. seriously... what were our moms thinking letting us watch that movie so young? i still like that movie, but haven't seen it in years!! i will watch an occassional scary movie with nate, but it involves me yelling and screaming a LOT, and acting like a big scaredy cat!
7. what is your fav fall activity?
well i LOVE the cooler weather, if it would ever come. and the leaves changing colors. i know that's not an activity so maybe the pumpkin patch? we didn't get to go last year, but we went the year before... but i was pregnant with lucas and wow, it was kinda a rough trip for me. but i'm def looking forward to going sometime this year. i don't particularly love it myself, but seeing the kids excitement makes it worth the drive, the crowd, the heat, the dirt, the price, etc etc etc :)
8. what is your favorite fall recipe?
wow. i'm not sure i can pick a fav. i def enjoy something that someone else makes. ha! and i'm not big on football, but i do love the yummy appetizers and food at football parties! one of my fav is apple dip... have you ever had it? here's the recipe... go make some if you have never tasted it before. and if you make some, please share it with me. and in my opinion, you don't even have to have the apples with it, the dip goes nicely on your
alrighty then. i'm sure that was the most exciting thing you've read all day! if i tag you, have some fun and take a minute to fill out the survey on your blog! (or FB if you prefer...)
