Hello October – 10/1/18

It’s the first day of October! I know most of the world is out there looking for pumpkin everything, boots, and sweaters. I am over here hanging on to every bit of warm sunshine that I can. We had incredible weather this weekend with abundant sunshine and I loved it.  I am starting to move toward a few fall things – I burned my Autumn in the Park candle this weekend and enjoyed the cool evening outside on Saturday night (but not quite as much as the warm sunshine in the afternoon 😎)

I am linking up with The Blended Blog for the TBB Asks: Fall 2.0


1. Favorite Fall Color?
Orange for sure. I love how orange brightens fall displays and wreaths. I use it when I deorate in the fall and I tend to gravitate towards orange when I am looking for fall clothes. I love that it is perfect for all of the fall holidays! I also love to squeeze in as much pink as I can for breast cancer awareness. I am a sucker for anything pink that supports research for and women fighting breast cancer. Expect these necklaces on repeat this month!


I’ve been saving this necklace for today – Orange is perfect on the first day of October!


Bright pink is always a favorite but I love that it has a special meaning in October!

2. Apple Cider HOT or COLD?
Both! I like cold apple cider when October is warm and I like hot apple cider in the cool evenings.  Sometimes, I even like to add a little something extra to that hot apple cider on a Saturday night 🙂

3. Caramel Apple: Yes or No?
No way! I don’t like caramel apples or caramel dip for apples.

4. Pumpkin Doughnuts or Apple Cider Doughnuts?
No way, again! I don’t like anything pumpkin flavor and I am not a fan of cider doughnuts either.  I am a chocolate frosted doughnut kinda girl!

5. Long or Short Cardigan?
Yes!! I love a cardigan in any form. I wear cardigans all year long and they are the perfect layer in the fall.  I almost always have a cardigan in my purse.

I am a girl who loves a cardigan!

6. Favorite Football or Fall Party Food?
I love football food – nachos and wings are my favorite.  I don’t really have a favorite fall party food.

7. Orange or White Pumpkin?
Yes! I love big pumpkin displays on our front porch. I like to have different sizes and colors on our porch with a few mums. This year my kids have already decided that we are going to have white and orange pumpkins for decorations and to carve.

8. Hayride or Bonfire?
This is a tricky one because I like a hayride but not the itchy factor in hay.  I also like a bonfire but not smelling like a bonfire all night.  Hmmmm, I’ll go with bonfire because I do love s’mores!

9. Favorite Fall Baked Good?
Baked apples. My mom makes the best baked apples. I know they aren’t really a baked good but I don’t love pumpkin flavored anything so that eliminates most fall baked goods.

10. Most Anticipated Fall Activity?
I love going to football games! We don’t go to as many as we used to but I like going to football games at any level. High school, college, professional, I don’t care. For me, football games = fall!


I hope everyone had a great weekend! I sure did. The weather was the perfect mix of that warm summer sunshine all day and a cool fall morning & evening! I’ll share our weekend adventures on Wednesday this week.

Have a great week full of sunshine and books!!
