Sunday Social

It's another week of Sunday Social! This week's questions are all about the Fall Season.

1. What is your favorite fall activity?

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is go to the Pumpkin Patch! Actually, it's more of an Apple Orchard but it's still my favorite place to pick pumpkins. I could spend an hour trying to pick out the perfect pumpkin. Then once I find it, I feel like I won the lottery LOL. We always roam their homemade jelly and jams and buy some for my Dad because he loves homemade jelly. Then, we buy a piece of homemade apple crisp to share and glasses of apple slush. I love carving the pumpkins and making homemade pumpkin seeds :) If anyone has a good recipe for pumpkin seeds, please share it with me! I love trying new recipes. 

2. Do you follow a football team? If so, which one and why?

Unfortunately, I don't. I like to follow the local teams but it's more like checking up on them  than following them. D likes the St. Louis Rams so we have a lot of their gear around the house. The one team I follow the most is the Iowa Hawkeyes! 

3. What is something fun about fall in your area?

Oktoberfest is really big in my area. They have the booze, raffles, games, everything. It's a lot of fun for the whole family! Every year, they raffle off a brand new car. Maybe this year is my lucky year!

4. What are your favorite fall staple outfits?

Boot, boots and more boots. I just bought this adorable pair of brown calf high boots and I can't wait to dress them up with some skinny jeans and a bomber jacket. Who ever knew that combat boots would make such a comeback this year? I mean, I was getting used to the comfy UGG boots with fur lining LOL. Now I;m scouring the internet for the my perfect pair. I was actually thinking about this pair. How adorable are they? I love the lace covering and they are in my price range!
5. What things are his looking forward to most about this coming fall season?

I'm looking forward to moving into my new house! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks, I'll be all moved in and ready to unpack :) We've been planning this move for a very long time and I am so ready for a new place.

6. What is your favorite fall holiday? Tradition?

Thanksgiving. I have a ginormous family and Thanksgiving is the first holiday that we get together for since Easter. My aunts make amazing food and it's just another excuse for me to get really fat and eat amazing homemade food :)

How has your week been going?

  5. Our area has pretty, rolling hills and many Colonial style buildings, very pretty in the fall. There are apple festivals, country fairs, and hayrides! Much to enjoy!

  6. I love orchards. I've never been to an apple orchard, but we go pick peaches and blueberries at least once a year. I took part in Sunday Social for the first time this week! http://randomamb.wordpress.com/

  9. 1. What is your favorite fall activity? When I was a kid, my Dad use to take my brother and I to this apple orchard place and we'd pick out apples, get apple cider, and candied apples. Of course, we'd go through the corn maze and ride the hay rides. It was a lot of fun.
    I've tried to find places like that here locally to where I live for my own kids, but they don't exist. The best I could do was take them to a corn maze (and for some reason every time I plan to go it's raining (we literally went on a rainy day one year just so we could go, and it was still fun.)
    2. Do you follow a football team? If so, which one and why? Can't say I follow any because I don't watch it.
    3. What is something fun about fall in your area? We have many church festivals for our kids all around us.
    4. What are your favorite fall staple outfits? Like you, boots (but I also wear them during the summer too because I love wearing cowgirl boots.)
    5. What things are his looking forward to most about this coming fall season? Honestly, just having cooler weather is what I can't wait for.

    6. What is your favorite fall holiday? Tradition? My favorite traditions is the amount of fall festivals the kids and I go to each year.
