An Autumn Tag

Hello friends!! Hope you had an amazing weekend and have been having a great weekend. My husband and I hosted a little gathering at our house and I cooked a bunch of snacks and we had a fire pit with some friends over. It was a good time. I think next weekend I will be having a little celebration for myself and go out to dinner with the family because as of Halloween, I will be a graduate from Grad school!!!

Any ways I got this tag from a twitter friend and fellow blogger so definitely check her out : HERE (:

1. The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves?

HAHA Umm I am really not sure, I guess leaves because pumpkin smells best when it is sweet and baked lol

2. Sweat or salty pumpkin seeds?

Definitely have to go with Salty!

3. Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins?

Pumpkin patches are just fun and pretty. Being someone who has grown up around farms it is definitely the way to go. Pumpkin Patches all the way

 

4. Wool or knit sweater?

I guess I would have to go with knit. There aren’t a lot of wool sweaters where I am from and it is way to hot for wool where I live.

5. Halloween party or explore haunted places?

This is so hard to choose!!! I love scary and haunted stuff but I also love dressing up and doing the scaring so I really can’t decide. BOTH!!!

 

6. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?

I personally am not a big apple person so it would definitely be Pumpkin pie for me with extra whipped cream!!!

7. Still silent nights or rainy windblown nights?

Well where I live anytime we have storms our power goes out so I will take a still silent night… with the tv on lol

8. Witches or ghosts?

Definitely ghosts. I mean there are people who have the ability to talk to the dead right??

9. Raking leaves or climbing trees?

Climbing trees! Who in their right mind would pick a chore lol

10. Ouija boards or ghost stories around a campfire?

Ghost stories. I am not about to piss off the dead messing with a quija board. plus campfires mean hotdogs and s’mores!         Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.16.04 PM

11. October or November?

October! Like I said I love halloween and all the creepy, scary stuff!

12. Black cats or owls?

CATS! I am a total cat lady. Owls are cool and pretty but I am all about some kitty cats!

13. Fireplace or candle light?

Hmmm I like both.. If I had to pick one I suppose I would pick a fire place only if it was electric because I don’t want my whole house smelling like a camp fire. Otherwise I would pick candles.

14. Monster movies or classic novels?

Monster movies because I rarely have time to finish a movie let alone a book. Plus my husband is not into reading so we spend time together finding movies and watching.

15. Carve or paint pumpkins?

I have literally never painted a pumpkin so I would have to go with carving pumpkins. Its so classic and fun and the best part is ripping the guts out! hahaScreen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.15.06 PM

Apple Dump Cake… YUMM

In my house we are always craving a little something sweet.. not great for our waistlines so we try to only indulge every once in a while. A classic for fall is apple pie but if you want to take the super easy, super tasty route try an apple dump cake! I did get this recipe from Never Ending Journeys so all credit goes to her!

Here is the recipe: Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 10.02.52 AMGuys it is sooo good and so quick and easy!! Great for if you need something easy for a gathering or pot luck!

It’s BLOGTOBER!!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.41.34 AMI really want to put my best effort in to doing Blogtober for the first time. With the help of some fabulous twitter friends I have some great Ideas for what to right about! So if you are new to blogtober, like me, let me introduce you. I will be writing some of my normal posts like monthly goals and a few reviews but I will also post some fall outfits, makeup looks, decor, recipes, and of course Halloween looks!

Writing a post everyday in October is going to take quite a bit of work but I think it will be so fun. Who doesn’t love fall?? It seems like people go crazy when it finally hits autumn. Even though it is still 90 degrees here where I live I want to be full on in the spirit of fall! I hope you enjoy and hopefully this will be a great success!

Talk super soon friends!

Let me know what fun fall things you’ll be doing or I should write about!

August Reflection

August is almost over and I have to say it has been a great month. I have really tried to commit to my goals for the month. I feel better mentally and physically. I have really worked on not letting thing bother me and I have committed to eating better and drinking lots of water. I have lost collectively 7lbs! Not all this month but I am proud of myself.

This month I started my final class in my Masters program and I am so excited to graduate, though I can’t say I’m not a little nervous for what the future of my career holds. I’m taking a break from homework and packing at the moment to write this reflection. This month we had a lot of visitors, events and now we are about to hit the beach again for the weekend to stay with friends. I wish packing was a possible career because I absolutely love it! I make a list for every trip and double check everything!

I think we should all make a monthly goal and try to accomplish it. I’m not only talking about followers or things like that, those are given. But things like being happier, being more organized, etc… What will your goals be for September? I have to think about mine for a bit but rest assured they will be posted soon!

Okay I will stop rambling. Be here Friday for my August Favorites!
