Morning, dear readers. Since I am again skipping out on Top Ten Tuesday (I always miss the comfort of the weekly meme when this happens because a.) it’s fun and b.) it ensures I have something to kick off a new week of blogging), I decided it was well past time to finally get to this fun tag that Grace (of Fictionally) tagged the blog with a while back. First things first, thank you, Grace for the shout-out. I appreciate it. Secondly, how fun is this Sweater Weather tag 2015 going to be? I mean, seriously, it’s all about my favorite time of the year! What could be better!? Especially considering this week is starting off to be a proper Midwest fall; sixties and beautiful sunshine. This means pulling out the sweaters (several of which are my cozy favorites) and boots.
With all that said, let’s get to the questions.
Favorite candle scent
I have multiple favorite candle scents, so we’ll just go with the one I had lit Monday afternoon, “Maple Butter.”
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Absolutely NO coffee, unless it’s Starbucks Frappuccino’s. Beyond that I do drink a yummy Café Mocha, which is half hot chocolate, half coffee. It’s available for our Keurig machine, so needless to say if I run out of it during the winter, I’m kinda sad. It’s my go-to hot drink if I’m freezing and have some computer/writing work to tackle.
What’s the best fall memory you have?
Nothing specific really. My sis (cousin, actually, but that’s a long story) and I used to build “leaf” houses, and guys, they weren’t teeny tiny. Nope we went all out.
For as long as I can remember, my family has taken a weekend day trip to see the leaves too. We have a really nice drive and though it’s lengthy, we make a day of it – plus there’s a bookstore waiting on the end the trip out there, so there is that.
Best fragrance for fall
Pumpkin or anything with a “spice” scent. (Speaking of spice, it’s not a fragrance, but I found the most divine zucchini cookie recipe this year. It’s like a soft spice cookie, and in thinking about it, I need to make them again.)
Favorite Thanksgiving food
Is this a trick question? I love pretty much everything on our Thanksgiving table which is very inconvenient for me. My mom makes a yummy stuffing and I do love our green beans, whether they’re made by themselves or turned into the traditional casserole.
Most worn sweater
Honestly, I don’t know. All of my sweaters get lots of wear this time of year. Though I do love days at home wearing my Marvel sweatshirts, curled up on the couch binge watching TV or reading a book as I indulged for part of Saturday this past weekend. (First Saturday I’ve read over a hundred pages in a sitting for a long time.)
Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Leaves all the way. Haven’t indulged in a leaf pile for years, but the nostalgic feeling is nice.Sweater Weather Tag 2015 #FWarchives Click To Tweet
Skinny jeans or leggings?
Skinny jeans! I’m a bit obsessed with them, more so since I found a brand at Target that I heart.
Combat boots or Uggs?
Neither really, although I did just get these really cute black boots that, while of the fashion variety have a definite “combat” style.
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Most of the time, yes. Depends on what the it is. Pumpkin spice M&M’s? Um, nope. But give me pumpkin spice Frappuccino’s, candles or baked goods and I’m all like, “Yes, please!”
Favorite fall TV show
Don’t have a single favorite in terms of overall for the season (meaning something I *have* to watch every time fall rolls around), but my current obsession – as you all likely know – is Blindspot. Last week’s episode… ohmygosh. I’m still swoon-y and lovin’ it. Cannot wait to watch the next installment tomorrow post iTunes download.

What do you want to be for Halloween?
Never celebrated Halloween a day in my life, which means I’m not likely to start now. Although I will take all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, please and thank you. *grin*
Hats or Scarves?
Used to be scarves, but despite owning several (my cousin has gifted several to me), I seem to wear hats now. I kind of love ’em.
What’s your #1 favorite thing about fall?
Probably the colors. I love the leaves though this year they weren’t as vibrant as prior years. Still, I love how God’s creation changes this time of year. I also love the fashion and sense of nostalgia the season brings. This enters the best time of year for a variety of reasons, which is weird since I’m always amazed when the years are over which is essentially now. Because of that, one would think I’d prefer the beginning of a new year. But nope, I don’t seem to.
I feel like everyone I know has been tagged for this one… or if my dashboard is any indication this be true. *smile* Hence I’m again not tagging anyone, but if you haven’t been tagged and you think this looks like fun, consider yourself tagged – you’re it! I’d love to read your answers so be sure to drop by with your post links.
Until then…. happy Tuesday and fall. I hope you’re all enjoying the season.
