I love the fall! I know I say that about each season when it rolls back into play, but I mean it. Fall is special. I consume my sweet calories for the year in pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones and the list goes on! Already the days are growing shorter and we're experiencing temps below the 70s - that feels so great!

When my big boys were small, my family and I would go on mini-adventures to nearby apple orchards and pumpkin patches that are grown in the mountains of Georgia. The ride is gorgeous, the air is as crisp as the apples we picked and the family time so memorable. Yes. I love October. Welcome October!

I'll stop my chatter to answer these fun questions put together by The Blended Blog!

1. Favorite Fall Sweet Treat?
Oh goodness. If it has pumpkin, hand it over. I'm not all that addicted to sweets but there is something about pumpkin bread, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin donut holes, pumpkin rolls and the list goes on.

2. Red, Yellow or Green Apples? 
Red please. Or go ahead and hand over a honey crisp. I'm eating one every day, while they are $1.50 a pound!

3. Favorite Fall Sport to Play? 
Uh. Hiking a sport?

4. Best Drink for Fall? 
Let's see. Coffee. 

5. Favorite Fall Activity? 
More hiking, foliage viewing and camping 

Here's a pic from our adventures at Chic-fil-A's Rock Ranch covered wagon camping adventures in Georgia.  I'm not going to lie. I froze my booty off out there and probably won't return any time soon, but we made great memories out there!

We camped in this covered wagon!

6. Must have Fall Purchase? 
More Lattes, cozy sweatshirts and sweaters!

7. Pumpkins: Pick your own or store bought? 
Tell me about the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown...

They are not so little anymore.

8. Real or Fake Pumpkin? 
I'll take both.

9. Favorite Halloween Costume? 
Hmmmm. That's a good one. My wedding dress. I'm serious. I've worn that every year and depending on who comes to the door I'm either a disney princess or a corpse bride.  

Here's another favorite. ;)

Caden, when he was 5

10. College Football or NFL?
Well, neither, but my boy plays HS football so, "GO Lions!!"

11. Fall or Halloween Decor? 
Leaves, Pumpkins and Cornucopias - Oh my!

12. Raking Leaves or no Leaves to Rake?
Somebody bring a dump truck!

13. Favorite Soup?
Pumpkin? Butternut squash? I'm open to them all. Is chili a soup? ;)

My most worn booties, next to the black pair!

17. Favorite Halloween Candy?
Swedish Fish

18. PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): YES or NO? 

19. Hayride or Corn Maze? 
Hayride. I have no sense of direction. Corn maze if someone with sense of direction comes along. 

20. Favorite Fall TV Show?
Netflix. All year. Doesn't matter.
