TBB Asks- Fall 2.0

Wow! It’s already October! Where did September go? I haven’t even finished taking my beach vacations yet and I already have my house decorated for fall. This lead me to join in on this months TBB ask. 

The first Monday of each month, the ladies of "The Blended Blog" host a linkup with fun themed questions and answers to write about and share. 

This months theme is Fall 2.0 Enjoy.

Q.- Favorite Fall Color
A.- My favorite Fall colors in clothes are tans, creams and grays. As for as decorating, I am in love with all the blues, greens and cream colored decorations in the stores now. They have that french country appeal while keeping up with the season. However, my home is currently decorated with the same old drabby orange and browns from years before. I need to update. 

Q.- Apple Cider Hot or Cold?
A.- Hot of course. I’m not a big fan of cider but I do keep single packs of instant cider at my coffee bar. Sometimes it’s nice and relaxing to sip on a cup. I have never tried the homemade good stuff. Do people actually drink apple cider cold?

Q.- Caramel Apple: yes or no
A.- Yes. I love anything caramel! I prefer my apples cut and dipped in caramel unless I make them myself. I’m picky about what my apples look like. 
If you have ever bitten into a bad apple hidden behind fresh caramel you’d understand. 

Q.- Pumpkin Doughnuts or Apple Cider Doughnuts? 
A.- Lets don’t talk about doughnuts. I’m currently in doughnut rehab.

Q.- Long or Short Cardigan?
A.- I prefer wearing long cardigans. They just seem to go best with jeans and booties. I feel like short cardigans make me look frumpy.

Q.- Favorite Football or Fall Party Food?
A.- You know those little smokies? Those.

Q.- Orange or White Pumpkins?
A.- Orange for carving and white for decorating. I love the Heirloom pumpkins and gourds. 

Q.- Hayride or Bonfire?
A.- I have never had good luck with hayrides. I’d rather sit around a bonfire or campfire with friends on a cool Fall night.

Q.- Favorite Fall Baked Good?
A.- I’m thinking back to grandmaws sweet potato pies. I also love rice pudding and sweet homemade breads.

Q.- Most Anticipated Fall Activity.
A.- I always want to visit the Renaissance festival. Then there is the County Fair. 

****ONE MORE THING...Do you like coffee??? There is a Starbucks Card give away going on at to celebrate her 1000th post! So head on over there and enter. Contest ends October 4th. 
I mean really, who couldn't use a starbucks card? Right?

TBB Ask- How Do you Cozy?

What do you mean its already September? Where did summer go? It's Time for bonfires, football and pumpkin spice. It's also time to pull out the cozy things stored in your closet and enjoy a cool night on the porch. This lead me to join in on this months TBB ask. 

The first Monday of each month, the ladies of "The Blended Blog" host a linkup with fun themed questions and answers to write about and share. Enjoy.

Septembers TBB Ask- How Do You Cozy? 

Q. Slippers: Yes or No?
A. Sometimes, but id rather wear my soft and fluffy no skid socks. I like to put my feet under me as I cuddle up for a movie.

Q. What is your Favorite Blanket?
A. I have a small lightweight reversible down throw my mom got me a few years ago. It heats up fast with my body temperature. It's the perfect size for one. I call it "my sleep blanket" because it never fails, every time I toss it over me, I fall asleep.  

Q. Thin or Thick Pillow? 
A. Thin. I could actually sleep without a pillow. I do not like a thick pillow that my face will bury into. I do not like anything on or around my face while I sleep. 

Q. Favorite Warm Beverage?
A. Coffee in the morning but at night, there is nothing like getting cozy with a cup of warm chocolate. 

Q. Robe: Yes or No?
A. No. The name "house coat" fits the title better. I hate to wear any kind of coat

Q. Favorite Comfort Snack Food(s)?
A. I love to snack on a bowl of popcorn with lots of butter.

Q. Movies or TV Series Binge?
A. Me and my husband have our favorite TV series. We never really watch movies but when I want to relax and get cozy, I put him in what he calls "Hallmark hell". 

Q. Actual PJs or Leggings?
A. PJ bottoms with a t-shirt is my favorite outfit. I like to look halfway decent in case someone comes to the door. 

Q. Do you Cozy up on the Couch or Chair?
A. I have my own recliner. It has heated seats and a message button. Can't get any better than that right?

Exact recliner I have can be found Here

Q. Hoodie, Tshirt or Sweater?
A. A t-shirt is my pick to wear inside. If I go out, I like an over-sized sweater made of cotton and no collar. Has to be cotton. Maybe a hoodie at a ballgame but I hate how the hoods pull the shirt close to my neck. Eek!

What is your favorite way to "cozy"?

TBB Asks- Vacation

OH my! July is already here! That means half the year is over! Yikes! But hey, Summer just started right?

Speaking of Summer, The first Monday of each month, the ladies of "The Blended Blog" host a linkup with fun themed questions and answers to write about and share. This is month it's all about Summer! So, I have decided to join in on the fun. 

The theme for July is "Vacation".
This will be my first "TBB Ask post". Enjoy.

1. Will you go on Summer vacation this year?
You betcha! Unfortunately, My job does not allow me but ten days a year in which I can only take one whole week at a time. I spread out five of the days and make long weekends. Then I take a whole week later in the summer.

2. Do nothing but relax or pack it all in vacation?
I'd say we do noting but relax. We will set up our chairs and umbrella on the beach and sit from sun up to sun down, relaxing, talking and making new friends. The only thing I pack in is the snacks!

3. What month do you like to vacation?
August is the month we take or week long vacation. We like this month because there are no crowds from the holidays. Also it gives us something to look forward to all summer.

4. Cruise: Yes or No?
No. I would love to go on a cruise one day but the husband is not a fan of being out on the waters. Hopefully, one day he will change is mind.

5. Favorite vacation tradition?
Our vacation tradition is heading out to this hamburger joint that we love so much. We have to make a visit every trip. (I mean unless you call setting up camp a tradition?).

6. Most memorable vacation?
I will say the most memorable vacation was our first time taking our daughter to the beach. It was so fun dressing her in those little cute swim suits and watching my husband play with her in the water. This is also when she took her first steps.

7. Pack light or pack it all?
I try to pack light. I can put a whole week in a small 22 inch suitcase. Even then, I rarely wear everything I take (but then there are shoes).

8. Hotel, Condo, House?
We own a Camper. We like having our own bed. 

9. Favorite thing to eat on vacation?
I love to eat some good crab legs or grill out. But nothing beats a good tomato sandwich on the beach.

10. Warm or cold destination?
A. Warm of course! I am miserable in the cold.

Happy Monday!
