Another thing I am excited about is the below TAG that my friend Chelsea over at The Kebs told me she did today on her blog. I was going to take yesterday and today off from blogging, but this TAG looked to fun NOT to participate in...so take a seat, sip on something sweet and enjoy while I talk about a few of my fall favorites :)

1. Favorite candle scent?
One could say I have more candles then most people need. I literally have two boxes full just sitting in our guest bedroom. Candle hoarder? Maybe. But I am obsessed with them. I even wrote a post about my fall favorites back in August. So with all of that being said, this question was an easy one! Will enjoys Leaves from Bath and Body Works so I always have that one burning when he is home. And recently I have had Mahogany Teakwood burning when I am relaxing in the living room or Harvest Coffee lit while I am cuddle up and reading a book in bed.
2. Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
This really depends on what kind of mood I am in! If I need a pick-me-up, I lean towards a cup of coffee. If I need something to help me relax, I drink tea. I haven't had hot chocolate in quite some time, but it's a classic and something I love drinking with family on Christmas morning.
3. Do you switch up your makeup routine for the season?
I don't really switch up my makeup routine from season to season, except I do try to use more moisturizer on my face to keep it from getting dry as the weather gets dryer and colder. And every now and then I will wear a bolder eye shadow and deeper red lipstick for that extra "pop" and festive feel.
4. Favorite Thanksgiving food?
Hands down, pumpkin pie. Since my birthday and Thanksgiving are both in November, my Grandma would always make me TWO homemade pumpkin pies as my "birthday cake"...one to share with the family and one just.for.me. And oh my goodness was it some kind of good! I don't know what she did, but even now when my mom tries to recreate my Grandma's pies, it just doesn't taste the same!
5. Hats or scarves?
Scarves! I own maybe 3 hats total and love that you can play up an outfit with a scarf. They also come in so many different colors, materials, and lengths that your options are truly endless with what you go with.
6. Most worn sweater?
I don't have a particular sweater that I wear the most, but I'd have to agree with Chelsea that oversized and comfy sweaters are a favorite of mine! I get cold really easily and probably wear my Patagonia Re-Tool Snap-T Pullover a few times a week throughout the Fall and Winter months. I've also been loving the Sweaters that Old Navy have been selling recently!
7. Must have Fall nail polish?
There is nothing better then a deep and rich nail color for the Fall, and think Cuckcoo for this Color or Diva of Geneva by OPI are two go-to colors that I really like.
8. Football games or jumping in a pile of leaves?
I've never jumped in piles of leaves (I hate to get dirty) so I would hands down say football games! Bring on tailgating, bratwursts, halftime, and the Green Bay Packers :)
9. Skinny jeans or leggings?
This is a tough one...but I would probably have to say skinny jeans. If I am lounging around the condo or going to get breakfast on the weekend then I opt for leggings, but for any other occasion I lean towards skinny jeans.
10. Boots or Uggs?
Another hard one but I think I have to go with boots. I only wear my Uggs in the winter, when I go on road trips, or take Miller out at night to use the bathroom. I feel boots give a more classic look and I personally just think I have "outgrown" my love for the Ugg trend.
11. What is your #1 favorite thing about Fall?
I honestly can't pick just one...sorry! I love the decorations, leaves changing colors, seasonal foods and drinks and that "cozy" feeling...do you know what I am talking about?!

12. Do you have a song that gets you in the Fall mood or just a song you're loving at the moment?
Hmm...Anything by John Mayer or Alison Krauss seem to get me in the Fall mood...or anything acoustic for that matter.
13. What is the Fall weather like where you currently live?
Currently, in Charlotte it is 72 degrees and cloudy. The leaves have changed from green to orange, yellow and red. There hasn't been too much rain so far this month and the temperature has varied by day. On Monday I wore a puff jacket and today I didn't need a coat...I hate that you can't get used to the weather because here in the South it constantly changes on ya!
Hope you guys enjoyed this TAG as much as I did! I always love learning new things about other bloggers and finding out our similarities and differences :) Until tomorrow, sweet friends!
