Friend Makin’ Mondays: Fall Favorites

Greetings from New York.  If you know me, then you know how happy I am to be here.   As I was packing for this trip I decided to bring a jacket with me.  First, I’m usually cold on airplanes.  Secondly, it’s cool in the evenings!  How exciting is that?!  The temps I saw on weather.com reminded me that Fall is coming, and that inspired this week’s post.

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

 

Fall Favorites

 

1. What is your favorite thing about this time of year?  I love snuggling in sweaters and wearing my slippers.  I love cool, crisp mornings and waking up to ESPN College Game Day.

2. What do you hope to do again before Summer is officially over?  I could do a little more swimming outside.  I didn’t do as much as I hoped to do over the summer.

3. When did you last go on a hay ride?  It’s been two years since my last hay ride.  I went to a party for Dad’s church, and we had a great time.  I’d love to do that more often.

4. What is your favorite pumpkin dish?  I like pumpkin pie, pumpkin fluff and pretty much all things pumpkin.  I make a stellar homemade pumpkin bread which I’m sure I’ll bake for my co-workers and classmates in October or November.

5. Do you decorate your home for fall?  Since I’ll have my own little home in October, I’ll decorate with what I have.  I adore white pumpkins, and Mom got one for me recently.  Isn’t it pretty?

6. Do you have any hobbies that are seasonally specific? If so, what are they?  I like a variety of crafting, but I love to knit in the fall and winter. I like to make felt wreaths too.

 

 

7. Apple cider or hot chocolate?  Seriously? Both.

8. Are you a fan of football?  If so, who is your team?  I’ve already mentioned that I like waking up to College Game Day so I guess the answer is obvious.  (I am definitely not diggin’ the conference changes, but whatever.)  I still like college football, but I love watching the Saints.  I’m looking forward to doing a little tailgating when I live close to the Superdome.

9. Share a fond Fall memory.  Football games with friends in high school tops my list of fond Fall memories.

10. It’s not Fall until…Starbucks starts selling their seasonal pumpkin spice latte.  I guess it’s safe to say that I am now a coffee drinker.  It’s still not a daily habit, but I drink it pretty regularly now.

 

Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions.  Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments!  Happy Monday!

    I have been wanting to participate in FMM for a while now, and this was the perfect time! I love Fall and can NOT stop talking about it!

    1. What is your favorite thing about this time of year? Football, Fire Pits, Hats, scarves, Jeans and Boots and the Crockpot!

    2. What do you hope to do again before Summer is officially over? Yikes, I thinks it officially over, but probably mow in my tank top to keep a little color on my arms and face.

    3. When did you last go on a hay ride? Probably about ten years ago when my dad drove his Farmall Tractor in the downtown parade, and I rode on the trailer behind it with my niece and nephew and a bunch of hay!

    4. What is your favorite pumpkin dish? I love all things Pumpkin, but I just made a recipe I found on Pinterest called Pumpkin Poppers. They are little pumpkin mini muffins that you dip in melted butter, then cinnamon sugar, and they were to DIE for. Seriously. Die for.

    5. Do you decorate your home for fall? I love to put bittersweet all over and have lots of Fall scented candles burning.

    6. Do you have any hobbies that are seasonally specific? If so, what are they? Not really, but I do find I like to curl up with a good book more often. If its super cold out, I don’t feel so guilty curled up on the couch with a cozy blanket, hot tea and a good book. (And now a plate of pumpkin poppers!)

    7. Apple cider or hot chocolate? Cider. Fewer WW Points. 🙂

    8. Are you a fan of football? If so, who is your team? I live in the KC area, so we are pretty loyal Chiefs fans, whether they suck or not. I love the idea most of all. Have people over, drink beer and eat chili and cuss at the TV. It doesn’t really get any better than that.

    9. Share a fond Fall memory. Watching my parents work hard to rake up all the leaves, then jump in them with the neighbor and mess them all up, then get yelled at. Ahhhhhh….good times.

    10. It’s not Fall until……..we sit outside with the firepit and the neighbors and listen to the announcer over the loud speakers at the High School Football game up the street. Or pumpkins on my porch.

    This is my first “official” FMM post. I did one last week, after I discovered FMM, but didn’t get to it on Monday. Since I love Fall, I couldn’t miss out on this week’s meme.
