TBB Asks - Everything Fall

It's time for another round of The Blended Blog Asks and this month is all about Everything Fall. I love Fall. That is no secret. From football to pumpkins, to yummy coffee drinks and Apple Hill, I definitely look forward to this time of year.
TBB Asks - Fall Everything

1. Favorite Fall Sweet Treat? Apple donuts. We get the best ones when we go to Apple Hill. I can't wait til October 8th!!!

2. Red, Yellow or Green Apples? I am all about the red apples. I love honeycrisp and pink ladies the most.

3. Favorite Fall Sport to Play? I don't really play any sports anymore. I just watch.

4. Best Drink for Fall? Spiced apple cider using apple wine from Apple Hill. So good!

5. Favorite Fall Activity? Watching Nevada football games. We have been season ticket holders forever.

I was about 12 weeks pregnant here.

6. Must have Fall Purchase? A new pair of booties/boots.

7. Pumpkins: Pick your own or store bought? We always pick our own when we go to Apple Hill. This year we have grown some for around our house.

8. Real or Fake Pumpkin? Real all the way!

9. Favorite Halloween Costume? As a child, I loved wearing a cheerleader costume. As an adult, let's just say I wore things that weren't that appropriate. Evidence below.

10. College Football or NFL? I love NFL. I love watching the Wolf Pack play along with bowl games, but I watch almost every single NFL game that I can.

11. Fall or Halloween Decor? I love both, but I tend to use more Fall decor, so I can leave it up until Thanksgiving.

12. Raking Leaves or no Leaves to Rake? We use a blower and then rack the leaves a little bit into a bag.

13. Favorite Soup? Butternut Squash with Pears and Bacon.

14. Favorite Fall Candle scent? Leaves by Bath and Body Works

15. Love or Hate Pumpkin Spice? I love pumpkin spice. I love it in lattes, soups and desserts.

16. Short Booties or Tall boots? This one is hard because I wear them both.

17. Favorite Halloween Candy? Dots. I only ever have them when I used to go trick or treating and now I take them from my girls candy bags. Don't tell me you don't take the best candy out of your kids bags. I know you do.

18. PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte): YES or NO? Yes, but usually a tall ever so often.

19. Hayride or Corn Maze? I love corn mazes. Before having kids, we used to go to one yearly. So much fun. I can't wait for my girls to be old enough to do this.

20. Favorite Fall TV Show? This is Us. I am so in love with this show.


  1. I want to go to Apple Hill!! You are the cutest, I'm so glad you love pumpkin!!

    1. Awe you are too sweet. Apple Hill is a must if you live on the West Coast. I am sure there are similar events near you!

  2. Oh I love apple cider donuts!! It's the best part of apple picking.

  3. I eat way more apple cider donuts in the fall than I'd like to admit. I can't help it, they're so good! Red apples all the way for me too. Haha I was the same way with my costumes. Halloween is that one day you can get away with everything. I've toned it down a bit since we do more of a family costume now and the boys are too comfortable with grabbing booties and boobs :/ Beautifully Candid

  4. This is so fun! Fall is a fun season for sure, especially with kids. :)

  5. Well this is just crazy. I've heard of Apple Hill before and now I'm convinced I need to make a trip there. I think it's a couple of hours from us. Maybe it would be a fun day trip. I love reading all the fall goodness in blog-land. Happy Monday!!!

  6. I tend to decorate more for fall too so it can stay up through Thanksgiving, and YUM to spiced apple cider <3

  14. Apple Hill sounds fabulous, I want to go! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. That Butternut Squash soup with pears and bacon sounds fabulous! I have never made my own, I need to try it.

  15. Oh, fall, my favorite season! The butternut squash soup sounds seriously divine. I need to try something similar! Also, I'm a tall boot person. I think short boots make my legs look shorter lol
