That's right, it's a two-fer! Mostly because it's the Longest Monday Ever at work and I needed a distraction from some mindless (yet important!) work I was doing.
The rules for Friend-Makin' Monday are just to answer the questions, and have fun! Oh and go and comment on Kenlie's original post with a link back so you can share in the FMM love with others!
Today's theme is "Fall," so I HAD to play along. The running joke in my family is that, as a little girl, I once said that "Fall is my favorite time of day!" So my mom and dad tell me this every as autumn rolls around and temps in Texas drop to a frigid 82 and we sweat under our scarves and as we sip our pumpkin spice lattes. Fall is a state of mind, I say.
On to the questions!
A New Season
1. What is your favorite thing about Fall? The fashions. I LOVE leggings and sweater tights and scarves and boots.
2. It's not Fall until... Pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves and the cafés. And football starts.
3. Apple cider or hot chocolate? Cider for fall. Hot chocolate for winter!
4. Share a happy Fall memory. We're making going to the Dallas Arboretum kind of a fall tradition in my house. Also, I found out I was pregnant last fall. That was pretty awesome.
5. Do you have any hobbies that are seasonally specific? If so, what are they? I think I read more in cooler weather. I like snuggling up with a book and my puppy at my feet.
6. What do you miss most about Summer now that it's officially over? Well, I never got to go to the pool and go swimming. I was wayyyyy to pregnant and wayyyyy too cranky about it.
7. Do you prefer pumpkin pie or pecan pie? Easy - pumpkin. I'm allergic to pecans.
8. Do you suffer from allergies? I do, but the Spring allergens are way harsher on my system than the autumn ones. My poor husband, on the other hand...
9. How do you celebrate Halloween? Our neighborhood always has a block party that we attend. It's fun to see all the little kids dressed up. Now that we have Z, we'll probably start looking into more activities for him. Once he's older, of course. Trick-or-treating with a four-month-old would be a bit silly.
10. What is the biggest change that you expect to experience during this season? My life has been changing so much. I guess I could say that continuing to adapt to being a parent, and finding my new identity (or a new aspect of my identity) will be the biggest change!
