The Autumn Tag 2018

Hey cupcakes! I went home last weekend to spend some quality time with family, and we did lots of fall activities including: visiting an apple orchard, watching The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, carving pumpkins, and jumping in the leaves. :)

It was super relaxing to enjoy the amazing weather with my family, so I wanted to celebrate the fall-time with the autumn tag (to get you all in the spirit as well)! I found these questions over on Twinkle Thoughts, and I would love to see you all answer these questions too :) Let's jump right into it!

The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves?
Rotting leaves all the way! I get so happy whenever I walk outside and smell leaves; it puts me in such the fall mood.

Sweet or salty pumpkin seeds?
Lol - I tried to make sweet pumpkin seeds this year, and they did not turn out at all... So definitely salty! I think lightly salted pumpkin seeds make a great snack :)

Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins?
Pumpkin patch all the way! I don't think I have ever bought pumpkins at a store - they have so much more character when you go to a patch!

Wool or knit sweaters?
I love me some knit sweaters (I am actually wearing one right now).

Halloween party or explore haunted places?
I hate scary things/haunted places so definitely a Halloween party. I think a Halloween Bash with the "Monster Mash" playing would be the best party of them all ;)

Apple pie or pumpkin pie?
Pumpkin pie! It reminds me of Thanksgiving and family, which makes it taste even better!

Still, silent nights or rainy, windblown nights?
I am not a fan of windy nights (never have been), so probably still, silent nights.

Witches or ghosts?
WITCHES (lol cuz I am one duh)

Raking leaves or climbing trees?
I'm not entirely sure how climbing trees is a fall activity, so definitely raking leaves. But, you have to jump into the leaves after you rake them :)

Ouija board or ghost stories around a campfire?
Both of these sound terrible haha because I am a wimp and don't like scary things... But I guess a campfire would make ghost stories less terrifying.

October or November?
I have always loved October! Even though Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday) is in November, October holds a special place in my heart <3

Black cats or owls?
Owls are cute but pretty deadly, so I would go with black cats.

Fireplace or candle light?
Fireplaces are so cozy! I think they are even better in the winter, but sipping hot cocoa by the fire with the colored leaves puts me in such a good mood :)

Monster movies or their classic novels?
Classic novels for sure! One of my favorite books is Dracula (I wrote a whole post about my favorite books a few years ago!), so I would recommend reading the books before you watch the movies.

Carve or paint pumpkins?
Carve pumpkins! Here is the one I carved this year:

  4. Your questions you did for the Autumn Tag were slightly different to the questions that I got.. but I really enjoyed reading your answers. Also, I love your pumpkin design!

    1. I will definitely check out your questions - I know there are always multiple tags going around the internet at once, so I am curious to see the difference :)
