The Blended Blog Asks: Fall Theme

Today I am linking up with the Blended Blog for The Blended Blog Asks -- a Good way to start a Monday. Let's jump into these Fall Theme questions.

1) Favorite Fall Sweet Treat?

Gluten free pumpkin roll from this amazing gluten free bakery near my house. It's the Best.

2) Red, Yellow, or Green Apples?

Red--McIntosh to be exact. They taste like fall.

3) Favorite Fall Sport to Play?

I don't really play any sports, but I watch a lot of youth hockey which has already started.

4) Best Drink for Fall?

Hard cider or warm apple cider (with or without rum!)

5) Favorite Fall Activity?

The "Spooky Walk" we set up at our house for Halloween. It's become an neighborhood destination.

6) Must Have Fall Purchase?

This season I needed some blouses for the in between weather. Here is one of my favorites. You can basically wear this with jeans on the weekend or dress it up like I did here.

7) Pumpkins: Pick Your Own or Store Bought?

We always buy our pumpkins from a sweet little church around the corner from our house.

8) Real or Fake Pumpkin?

Both--we always carve a real pumpkin but I do use the fake ones for outdoor decorating too.

9) Favorite Halloween Costume?

My two favorites were actually for Hockey Guy. When he was one he was the Itsy Bitsy Spider and he just started walking. When he was four he was Woody the Cowboy. He wore the Woody the Cowboy to Micky's Not So Scary Halloween party, but insisted wearing his Micky ears and not the hat. Those two costumes were the Best.

She wanted his autograph

10) College Football or the NFL?

I guess NFL because I am a Patriots fan even though I am not a big football fan. Honestly, really a Tom Brady fan.

11) Fall or Halloween Decor?


12) Raking Leaves or No Leaves to Rake?

Our neighborhood is very wooded so there are lots of trees around us. About 18 months ago we had four large trees removed from our property so we have a lot less leaves to rake. You know what else we have a lot less of...acorns!

13) Favorite Soup?

This Butternut Squash Soup is not only the Best soup I make, it's one of my Best recipes in general.The secret...pears instead of apple.

14) Favorite Fall Candle Scent?

Yankee Candle McIntosh. I love the clean, crisp scent.

15) Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice?

I like it and do like to try different pumpkin spice foods. Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread mix is the Best.

16) Short booties or Tall Boots?

Both! I am a Hockey Mom so I do wear Uggs too. 

17) Favorite Halloween Candy?

Pumpkin shaped Reese's.

18) PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): Yes or No?

Yes--but when I order one I usually ask them to go light on the syrup. Plus I only order about 1-2 per season. I think I need one this week though!

19) Hayride or Corn Maze?


20) Favorite Fall TV Show?

Great Pumpkin of course! I also love the Fall Harvest movies on the Hallmark Channel.
