Today I am linking up with Neely and Amber for the Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge. This week has been a CRAZY I haven't joined YET....but I am catching up today by answering all 5 of the posts/topics that they have hosted this week!!

Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge


Fall traditions
Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the cool crisp weather, back to school, the routine, the food, the colors! I could go on and on.
We don’t have any traditions in our little family YET…but I look forward to many back to school traditions with the kids!
I am totally going to do this….

Do this at the 1st day of school each year...and then put them all together in a book for a graduation cool would that me!?

I love this cute sign!

Fall clothes/trends/makeup
I did a whole post on this on Wednesday. Everything that I have been pinning has been for fall. I LOVE scarfs and boots. Give me some trouser jeans and a cute sweater and I will be all set! I am thinking about dying my hair a tinge darker for fall…and I may even get a little crazy and put a little auburn in there too!!


What do you do for Halloween/a Halloween Memory?
We had AWESOME Halloweens growing up. My memories of Halloween are some of my most vivid memories of my childhood! We lived in a perfect neighborhood for trick or treating. My dad would take my sister and I ALL around getting as much candy as possible. My mom stayed home and handed out candy to trick-or-treaters that came to our house.

I am excited for Halloween with Blake this year. This is the first year that he actually “gets” it. He is WAY excited and has decided that he wasn’t to be a pirate. I asked what he needed to be a pirate…he said “an eye patch”….”and a moustache”…..I told him that if that was his costume he would just be a creepy little man, so he needs a hat and an outfit too. He has been practicing his “trick-or-treat”, and I must admit he does sound pretty darn cute!!
Blake's 1st Halloween....
Blake's 2nd Halloween...

Fall decorating
I love fall decorations. For the first time ever we grew our own pumpkins this year! It is fun to have so many to choose from. We grew little ones, gourds, HUGE ones, and perfect carving pumpkins too. I have a bunch on the porch now. I plan on painting some and letting Blake paint and carve others!
I also made a fall rag wreath! It’s pretty cute.

Mine is more of a fall wreath than a halloween wreath...but you can get the point here!


Things you are looking forward to for fall
I really look forward to all that afll brings…..the cool weather, cute clothes, food. Football, Halloween, changing colors. I am even looking forward to it getting dark earlier at night. There is just something cozy about fall….and best of all, it means that Christmas is just around the corner :)
