Fall Old School Blogging

I'm linking up with The Miss Elaine-ous Life for some Old School Blogging. For you newbies to blogging you missed the old days of passing around lists and questions to respond to. It's fun to get back to the basics of blogging occasionally.

This link up is all about things Fall.

What is your favorite Halloween candy?
I don't like chocolate. I know, that makes me a freak of nature but I don't. So I get excited over the Sugar Babies and Skittles my kids bring home.  
What is one of the worst “treats” you ever received in your candy bag?  
I grew up in a neighborhood with one family that gave out the black or orange taffy. At least I think it was taffy, it was gross either way. Another family had a tray of pennies and we were warned to only take one. I'm not sure which one was worse, though at least I could spend the penny.

What was one of your favorite costumes you wore when you were a kid?
I mostly worse old dance recital costumes as a kid so no favorites here. But when it comes to my kids I have a favorite. I loved their Cat in the Hat theme year. It makes me a little sad that my kids don't want to coordinate their costumes anymore. 

How about your favorite costume as an adult? 
I don't have any pictures of me in costume as an adult. There were some skimpy costumes over the pre-kid years that I would love to see now. Back when I was super thin but I neither knew it or appreciated it. Now that I'm a mom, I sport this shirt every year. It's fun for me to watch the people who don't get the joke. 

What scares you most on Halloween? Spiders? Zombies? Axe murderers? Eyeballs in a jar… (or something else)?
I'm not a fan of haunted houses. I was dragged to them as a teenager and in my early 20's but now I refuse to go. Why someone would pay to get scared is beyond me. 
So then, what is your favorite scary movie??
Scream. I watched it this weekend with my husband and it took both of us back in time. It's not really scary and it cracks me up. I'm not a fan of scary movies. 
What is you favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal?
Cooking it alone, eating it, and then not doing a single dish since the cook never cleans in my home. I don't like help in the kitchen and I turn down invites to other people's houses. I love cooking Thanksgiving dinner, plus I'm not about to gamble on someone else's gravy and stuffing.

I mean really, what if they serve canned or packet gravy? I would die. 
What is your favorite piece of clothing or accessory to wear in the Fall?
Boots and scarves. I love that I can throw on a t-shirt and jeans but I look dressed up with boots and a scarf.

What is your favorite pie?  If you do not like pie I will forgive you but then what is your favorite Fall dessert?
Apple! I make my Great Grandmother's recipe and it's amazing. In the summer I turn it into a grilled apple pie.  I actually think I like the grilled version better since I don't have to use my oven. 
My kids like it too, as you can tell by the stolen tastes before dessert time.

Do you live where there are four seasons? If so, where is your favorite place to see the fall colors?
Yes for the first time in my life I live where there are four seasons. Thankfully our Winter's are pretty mild but the Fall colors in NC are amazing! This is my favorite time of year. We can see the Fall colors every time you step outside this time of year. 

What is your favorite fall tradition?

Taking my kids to fall festivals and trick or treating. It's fun watching my kids experience it, plus I steal some of their candy.


Is there anything else special about the Fall to you?

I love the first time I can cool down the house by opening the windows and the first time I make soup. Those two events usually occur on the same night. I just love eating a bowl of soup and cuddling with my husband on the couch.

What makes Fall special for you? 


  1. Love the idea of a grilled apple pie! Definitely going to have to see if I can get the husband on board with that one!

    1. It shouldn't be too hard since he gets pie right? It's a little easier than the baked version but I like it because there is less crust and more apples.
