All About Fall & Me

I saw this fun little fall survey on p!nk persistence and I thought I'd join in and do it too!

Favorite Fall Drink: That's hard...I love anything pumpkin, so PSLs are always good. I also love apple cider, especially when it's warmed up.  And if you add a little fireball to some hot apple cider--yum!

Favorite Fall Candle: I pretty much love all fall scents and I always have candles burning in the fall, so I can't pick just one. Give me all of them!

Favorite Thanksgiving Food: I'm not a big turkey fan. I love all the sides. Green bean casserole is one of my favorites!

Favorite Type of Pie: Apple pie for sure.

Football Games or Jumping In Leaves: Football is my favorite sport, so I love watching football during the fall!

Favorite Fall Attire: Boots and scarves--I could wear those every single day.

Favorite Fall Television Show: We watch so many shows in the fall. Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder are two of my favorites. We started watching a couple new ones that we really like too: Blindspot and Quantico.

Combat Boots or Uggs: Actually, I'd rather wear riding boots. All day, every day.

Is PSL Worth the Hype: I'm not sure that they are worth the hype, but I do love them!

What is Fall Weather Like Where You Live: It's cold. It was 28 degrees when I woke up this morning and supposed to get up to 50. Maybe. The leaves fall (and we spend every night cleaning them up). And the days are short...dark by 6:00 pm and getting shorter every day.  Summer is my favorite and I'm not a fan of winter, so when fall comes, I know that winter follows and I'm not happy about that!

What Do You Think About Black Friday: I'm one of those people that goes out shopping on Black Friday, but I don't wait in line and go crazy...I love finding deals, but not worth fighting all the crazy people for them in line.

Fall Mornings or Evenings: Fall mornings on the weekends. It gets dark too soon in the fall, so I love mornings when the sun is shining :)

5 Things

I posted over a week ago and said I was back...and then nothing. Oops! I'm working on getting back in the blogging groove, so today I'm sharing 5 things that I've been up to since you last heard from me. Get ready for picture overload!

ONE. Running.  I've done a few races since the last time I posted.  I've been getting better and finally made my goal of running a 5k in under 30 minutes!

Alger Heights 5k

Grand Rapids Marathon Relay

The Great Pumpkin Run (5k)

TWO. Halloween.  I dressed up this year for the first time in probably 10 years!  Kevin and I went to a Halloween party at our friend's house last weekend and we dressed up as Clark Kent and Wonder Woman.  We stayed home and passed out candy on Halloween night.

The photo on the left is of my mom in the early 80s, and me on the right, this year.  I wore her Wonder Woman costume from about 30 years ago!  It was so fun to be able to do that :)

THREE.  Yard work.  Now that fall is here it seems like every night is spent cleaning up leaves...the joys of being a homeowner!  But I do have fun decorating the front porch for fall :)

FOUR.  Softball.  We played a lot of softball this summer and fall.  And we won our league and tournament on our fall team!

FIVE.  Girls weekend.  I spent a weekend in Traverse City with some of my girlfriends.  We had so much fun wine tasting, eating, and laughing!

What have you been up to?  What have I missed in the blogging world?
